News flash: Not all dads like or want new tools for Father’s Day, just like not all moms want kitchen appliances for Mother’s Day. For the dad who spends time in an office in or outside the home, I’ve put together the following gift ideas:
For the tea-drinking dad, the Buddy Tea Infuser ($10 ARV) (which comes in a variety of colours) is a sweet little hugging fellow that balances on the rim of glasses/mugs, even when the tea is being sipped. Made of BPA free moulded plastic and removable stainless steel mesh, this is the perfect small gift to give that makes sure that you’re thought of whenever it’s time to enjoy some tea.
While sitting at a desk drinking tea, wouldn’t it be nice to gaze at some family photos and artwork? The Sunny Desk Photo Display ($15 ARV) allows you to quickly change up what you want to focus on. You don’t need to mount pictures or use tacks to attach them to the wall anymore.
If you’re looking for other things for an office or study, Umbra has lots of great products to give you some ideas.
I use the Bungee Card Case ($7) when I go to networking events or conferences to store other people’s business cards, but it could easily be used for credit cards, points cards or as a a wallet for everyday use. Other ideas: for storing keys, change, or bus tickets. What would you use yours for?
Before leaving the house for a meeting, work or date night, this Slip Shoe Horn ($30 ARV)—which is pretty much the best shoe horn ever—will really come in handy. Made of solid cast aluminum, with a lovely shiny finish and a rubber loop for hanging, this shoe horn will surely have pride of place near the from entrance.
