Father’s Day 2015

gm_FathersDay_2015

Why are Dads so difficult to shop for?? They’re such simple people with simple desires, and that makes it tough to find them a good gift. The key for Dad is getting him something that he’ll actually use, hence all of the food related items. Then there’s also the practical items, like the grill thermometer and stretching band (my Pop is always complaining about his hamstrings and calves), and of course personal items for things that strike his interest, like movies and books. Hope our finds help to inspire you in your gift hunt before Sunday!


01. iDevices iGrill2
02. Men in Green by Michael Bamberger
03. Popcorn Seasoning Set
04. Dijon Black Truffle Mustard
05. Jurassic World movie tickets
06. iPhone 6 Battery Case
07. Stretching Band and Booklet


 

Happy Weekend!

Ohh yes it’s here, the day we’ve we 9-5ers have all been waiting for. Was anyone else having a tough time waking up this week? We felt like each and every morning we were hitting the snooze button like, 47 times. Speaking of which, has anyone ever wondered why the iPhone’s snooze button is set for 9 minutes? I’ve heard it’s an homage to history. Anyways, hope you all have a wonderful couple of days off, and don’t forget to change your clocks forward!
