Unique Golf Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Summer is in full swing (but not here yet officially), the weather is warm and lots of Dad’s are out enjoying the links. Sometimes, it is all fun and play in the summertime. Lets not forget the important meal time preparation aferwards! Dad will definitely enjoy BBQ after a long round of golf. Grilling steak and burgers is what it’s all about. The 19th Hole golf gift for Father’s Day is a great example of a gift that Dad would truly enjoy this Father’s Day. Another option is the King of the Grill Father’s Day BBQ gift. Regardless of his interests and passions, remember Dad this week for his special day! 

Lazy Hazy Days of Summer…

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Now that July is upon us, we hear the sounds of children playing in our neighbourhoods all day long rather than just in the evenings. It reminds me of my childhood and what I looked forward to all year long….the summer holidays. I was a pretty good student, and for the most part enjoyed school, however, there was nothing like having it done with for the year and to be able to do whatever we wanted during the day without worry of any unfinished homework or an impending test. This was what we thought was freedom back then, if only for two months. I was surfing the web the other day looking for material on holidays when I found this holiday page on Wikipedia. It has explanations of the word holiday and vacation, from their Etymology to their Religious meanings. The website also talks about employment issues and the types of holidays that there are. The summer holidays were my favourite as a child, but if I remember correctly, they were over before you knew it. Speaking of that, I’m sure in the next few weeks, you’ll start to see back-to-school ads in the local papers. Tell your kids to enjoy it while they can.

Summer Sun, Summer Fun…

We’re only a couple days into summer and the gift basket season has slowed to a crawl.  There are no more holidays left.  Most people will enjoy the summer, soaking in the sun and visiting the pool or beach as often as possible.  It’s never a bad time to send a gift basket though.  People have birthdays in the summer, why should they get left out?  People get married in the summer, should they be ignored?  People have babies in the summer, shouldn’t that be acknowledged?  While enjoying the summer, remember to spread joy and happiness with simple little gift baskets, summer-themed for maximum impact!
