“FATHER” Pa’, Vader, Alta, Pai, Otac, T’ata, Padre, Apa, Athair, Abba, Babbo, Papa, Patri


There are so many different ways to say “Dad or Father” throughout the world. However, the feeling in your heart for whomever your central male figure was growing up, universally, I think tends to be quite similar. And it doesn’t have to be a biological connection…rather it comes down to the men in your life that made the most impact and built the best memories with you. Whether this has wound up being your father or perhaps an uncle, cousin, family friend, pastor, coach or perhaps an older sibling as we head towards Father’s Day on June 21, it’s nice to reach out to this person or people and say “thinking of you and all that you’ve meant and mean to me through the years” Even IF your budget limits you to a card…this is perfection…I really mean this! It’s the energy and time you took to remember, that’s always going to leave a lasting impression and impact.

Take a look below when you have a spare moment. I’ve had the privilege of working with beauty & wellness curators at We Make Beauty and Lippe Taylor PR to gather a range of gift ideas that take some of the leg work out of deciding what to gift your favorite guys on Father’s Day!


Daddy, I may find my prince but you will always be my king!

  • We Make Beauty is a piece of cake to figure out! The drop down bars on the home page couldn’t be easier to navigate. The three icons at the top to focus on are “Skincare” “Men’s Fragrance” & “Gift Sets.” Jumping around those three areas was fabulous and easy. The site is a hit list of the best of the best in women’s & men’s products at varying price points to accommodate a wide range of budgets.
  • The fourth icon on the home page to be aware of is the one that says: “Rewards Program” you will love this! If you opt to buy anything from their 2x and 3x reward sections you get TONS of bonus dollars that add up each time you shop the site.  Ultimately the “dollars” can be redeemed for products you’ve been dying to purchase via them.  BUT now the tables turn and it becomes their “thank you” to you for your loyalty.
