Father’s Day Gift Guide

We asked dads Andrew, Greg and Patrick to pull together their personal Father’s Day Gift Guide. Here’s what they came up with and why:

Andrew (new Dad)
1. Quicksilver “Daddy” Day Bag: I can tote around my kiddos and not have to tote around my wife’s diaper bag.
2. Kindle Paperwhite: So I can read in the dark, outside, wherever or whenever because I get so few chances these days.
3. A Buffalo Jackson necktie: What would Father’s Day be without a tie?

Greg
4. Victrola iPod dock: I love the combination of vintage and modern technology. It’s just beautiful to look at and the sound quality really takes you back to a magical era (Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong…). No batteries or electricity needed.
5. Vitamix: I’m a 48-year-old dad with a 5-year-old daughter. I want to live as long as possible. Green smoothies make a perfect, easy breakfast.
6. Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman: The only way my wife (a designer) is going to agree to a recliner.

Patrick

7. Frye Justin Mid Lace Sneaker: Comfy and stylish. Perfect for weekends.
8. 27” iMac: Because my kids have taken over every computer in the house. And I want one for just me…that nobody is allowed to touch.
9. 2014 Toyota Tundra: It is a luxury car in the body of a truck. Two birds with one stone.

For the Perfect Pedi

It’s officially open-toe season so here are step-by-step instructions on achieving the perfect pedi:

1. Soak your feet. This cleans your feet as well as softens dead skin cells so you can exfoliate.
2. Scrub. This homemade Lemon Peppermint Foot Scrub looks yummy. Rinse with warm water.
3. Trim and file. It’s best to trim nails when wet so they are flexible. If nails are dry, they can split.
4. Moisturize. Give yourself a nice quick foot massage. This feels awesome! But be sure to rinse off lotion and dry thoroughly before next step.
5. Polish. Apply our Sticky Base Coat. Then apply 2 coats of color polish. It is very important to wait a couple of minutes between each color coat. And finish off with our Top Coat for a boost of shine! With water-based polishes, it is best to apply thin coats.

Tip: Apply polish right before bedtime so it can cure overnight.
