An Ode To Dad
(NC)-For over a hundred years, we have dedicated the third Sunday in June to honour dear ol' Dad. This year, treat Dad like a king and honour him in style. Yvonne Diesing, Dockers� Brand Manager, provides the following gift ideas to help make this Father's Day perfect for him:
- Grill him - Present Dad with a new set of accessories for his outdoor grill. Make his day by breaking them in and creating his all-time favourite meal.
- Score a hole in one - Treat him to an afternoon at the driving range or play a round of golf together. A new putter or a new outfit, such as a pair of shorts and a pique tipped V-neck shirt from Dockers�, is always a hit.
- A little 'R&R' - Let Dad enjoy his day in peace and quiet. Wrap up a CD and the latest best seller from his favourite author with a 'Do Not Disturb' sign attached.
- Take him out to the ballgame - Enjoy quality time with Dad and treat him to a day at the ballpark with tickets to a baseball game.
- Dad the Explorer - A pair of Dockers� khaki pants make a perfect gift for travel-lovers. They are wrinkle resistant and offer easy-care and stress-free packing, and are available in an array of styles and colours for every type of Dad.
- Get creative - Make Dad something special just for him - a hand-made frame with a picture of the two of you, a personalized coffee mug or T-shirt, or a delicious breakfast in bed, complete with the sports section!
- For the 'Gadget Guy' - A pair of Dockers� Mobile Pants™ with 'invisible' storage pockets is designed specifically to accommodate the on-the-go guy while maintaining the same comfortably tailored look and feel of classic Dockers�.
No matter what you decide to give Dad this Father's Day, make sure to include some quality time with him and show him what a great guy he is.
