An Ode to All “Fathers” on Father’s Day

Posted by Emily on 15th Jun 2016

Father’s Day is Sunday, and I’d like to dedicate this blog to all of the incredible fathers, father figures, and male mentors out there. You have touched the lives of many, be it your own children, others’ kids, family members, mentees, those you have coached, really anyone you may have interacted with.

Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for simply being you. Your existence is beyond appreciated, and the often times silent but impactful role you have played in our lives cannot be replaced.

Your love and appreciation are obviously the best gifts you can give your father or father figure on Father’s Day – but if you’re anything like me, you want to give a physical gift as well!

When I was a little girl I used to love making coupons for my parents. Things like “help with a load of laundry”, “cleaning up after supper”, “an interruption free nap”, the list goes on and on.

Something like that is a great gift idea, or maybe he has previously shared gift ideas with you, or you have remembered the things he wants but won’t spend the money on himself for.

Like I said before, anything, even just a simple thank you, smile and hug will warm his heart this Sunday. But if you’re still wanting to physically hand him something, I have a few ideas for you!

For the outdoorsy man

Beyond its style elements, the GT Sharktooth watch also doubles as a survival tool in emergency situations. The band made from 550-LB tensile strength Paracord, can be unraveled to roughly 9 feet in length, allowing it to help you out of whatever jam you may find yourself in. It also contains a compass and the buckle has a whistle and fire starter inside!

The 8-in-1 Grenade Kit is an essential tool for any outdoorsy man. It is loaded with gadgets that can’t easily be improvised like: a carabiner, tin foil, eye knife, cotton tinder, fire starter, paracord, weight swivels, fishing hooks, floats, and fishing line! Small in size it can be easily added to the outdoor gear he already has or is great for getting him a collection started!

The paracord bracelet with an emergency whistle and built in fire starter is the ultimate survival accessory! Along with the whistle and fire starter there is also approximately 10 feet of usable Paracord (depending on the size of the bracelet ordered). It is perfect for camping, hiking, biking, fishing, and much more. If you need help picking the right size bracelet check out our sizing guide!
