So it’s Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21st 2015, a time to appreciate all Dads everywhere, so ladies and kids, ask yourselves how much do they deserve your appreciation? I will leave that one with you but if anything, at least a cool gift to them now is something you can throw back in their face, come next time they forget Mother’s Day!
Here is a round up of some great gifts and fun things to do, for Dad…
For The Dad You Just Don’t Know What To Get
Paper Source have lots of great fathers day gifts in store or online.
such as the Dining Table Ping Pong
and my favorite the Hey Handsome Canvas Shaving Bag
They are also holding a Father’s Day ‘Make And Take’ workshop at their Centennial location:
6851 S Gaylord St
Centennial, CO 80122
This workshop is running from June 12th – June 21st. It costs $8 for the first card and $6 for each additional card.
You will also receive a 10% off coupon off the entire store with a ‘Make And Take’ purchase (if you don’t want to make a card they have lots of cool ones for sale too).
For The Beer & Chocolate Loving Dad
Try a class at The Chocolate Therapist. The owner of The Chocolate Therapist believes in the health benefits of chocolate and presents how to taste chocolate properly, how it’s made from bean to bar, and how to pair with wine or beer.
P.S Groupon have a great offer at the moment for the classes!
Enjoy frosty, pub-style draft beer without sacrificing the comforts of home.
For The “Techie” Dad
We are loving the Impossible Instant Lab Photo Printer. Transform digital images into analog instant photos with this awesomely innovative device by the experts at Impossible. Super easy-to-use, just download the accompanying app and you’re in business! Compatible with all iPhone 4, 5 and 6 models + most Android phones.
This is one you will definitely be borrowing. Just draw in the air and you’ll be printing with plastic. Build anything your mind can make your hands draw. Draw, design, fabricate, dream, conquer – you can do anything with a 3Doodler.
