Whisky of the Week

Meandering the world, one whisky at a time

Father’s Day. How will you spoil your special man?

FAther's Day 2017 header Fathers Day

A short couple of weeks ago, it was Mother’s Day.  I wipe my eyes and suddenly it is nearly Father’s Day.  I was spoilt on Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed and a few special gifts.  It was a wonderful day that I could spend with my family.  Now it is my turn to celebrate the amazing father that John is.  I looked around for special items that will make him realize how special he is to us.  Items that convey how much we appreciated him.  One of my favorite places to look for personalized gifts is Netflorist.

The personalization options they have on various whiskies is amazing.  What dad would not love to get a bottle of whisky with his name on?  A very handy feature that Netflorist has is the “share the cost” option.  When you all buy individual gifts, dad might get a whole lot of small gifts.  However, invite all your siblings to share the cost of the special gift and together you can buy him something really special. 

I also found a few fun items on the Mantality website.  This one stop shop for men has so many options from technology to gadgets to style items.  I choose a few items that fit the whisky theme and something that I know John has been looking for.  He loves music and how great would it be if he can enjoy some whisky while listening to his favorite music.
