At Mood of Living, we believe in inspiration and appreciation – ideals encapsulated in Father’s Day, a day to appreciate the dads, step-dads, and father figures who have and who continue to inspire us. In honor of the occasion, we’ve collected some great finds to give your dad something that will last him through the years. He will definitely appreciate this Fossil watch if he’s always on the go, or perhaps a monthly membership to Club W if he’s a wine connoisseur or just looking to expand his knowledge of wine.
Father’s Day is a perfect time to take advantage of the warm weather with a family picnic or hike. For families with smaller children, many communities offer special deals for dads at recreational spots such as zoos and aquariums. On the other hand, when it comes to staving off the heat this weekend, we recommend putting a summer twist on the classic dad whiskey by picking up a basket of local, in-season strawberries and making Saveur’s strawberry moonshine julep.
Often, it is the small things that count the most. Show your appreciation by making your dad’s day easier – consider brewing him a morning pot of coffee or grabbing his favorite newspaper. A handmade card, a thoughtful letter, or even just saying “I love you” can go a long way. Take this day to celebrate shared memories and experiences; comment or tweet us at @moodofliving your favorite memories with Dad.
