Father's Day Gift Guide

Stumped for a Gift Your Dad Will Like?

Want to get something extra-sweet and extra-special for your Dad or the man who's been like a Dad to you this Father's Day? Forget it.

Sorry, but most of the men I've spoken with said their favorite gifts were the practical ones they received; ones they could use every day, that actually served a particular purpose or that they could eat. Okay, the odd hip flask was a cool gift or the retro cocktail shaker, but those somehow don't seem like Father's Day gifts to me.

So what can you do? Think outside the traditional gift box. Here are four of my favorite Father's Day Gifts:

1. Does Dad love to work outside, but have really dry hands from doing so? Get him a great new shovel, or garden fork or whatever he's been eying, and include some heavy duty salve, or some Shea Butter Balm. Throw in a home-made certificate for a hand massage and you're good to go.

2. Are your Dad's feet a wreck? Get him a terra-cotta Foot Scrubber and a Foot Cream. And include a massage certificate, except this time for the feet. Ignore his protests that he doesn't want anyone touching his feet - he would secretly love to be spoiled a little, and he'll be hooked within 10 seconds of the first touch.

3. Does he cruise around the house in a pair of disreputable boxers? Maybe it's time for him to get a robe of his own. But make sure you get a robe that's comfortable and practical - there's nothing worse than a "luxury" robe that's too hot to wear, or gets musty-smelling because it doesn't dry quickly.

For summer, our most popular robe is the Classic Waffle Weave Kimono Style Robe. These robes are very generously sized, they're super-comfortable and they wash and dry like a dream. (They were actually developed for use in a spa and look just as good on a man as they do on a woman.)

4. Another great option are the new Waffle Weave Towels. These 100% cotton towels are soft, absorbent and dry quickly. They're available in two styles, Classic Waffle Weave Towels, and Modern Design Waffle Weave Towels, in a range of colors and sizes.

Need Gift Wrap? Gilden Tree offers gift wrap for just $5.00, and a free gift message. Items are placed in a nice brown kraft gift box, and tied with a real green ribbon. See? That was easy, wasn't it?
