Successful Father's Day Gifts #SterlingChoice

NOTE: Affiliate links included in some posts. 

It's always a special time when we stop and celebrate our dads. He's the one who taught me how beautiful I was. He's the first man I loved with my whole heart. He taught me all about football and basketball and golf and tennis and any other sport that came on tv that involved a ball. He was the first man to think I was funny . . . and smart . . . and lovable.

But sometimes it seems that finding the right Father's Day gift is such a challenge. For the most part, they can buy what they want for themselves and so finding something special, let alone meaningful, can be extremely difficult.

Considering that I wanted to share a couple of successful Father's Day gifts I have come across . . .

#1 - Induct Your Dad to the Superman Hall of Heroes

You can choose from a variety of packages that reward your dad (or any other man in your life) for being your hero. Is there someone who has made an impact on your life or the life of others? This is the perfect way to honor them.

Inspired by Superman and his unwavering morals and endless pursuit of truth and justice, the Superman Hall of Heroes offers a way to pay tribute to real life people by submitting a photo and their story.

Depending on your commitment level, you can also send a gift package to the one you are celebrating. The gift package we gave contained the Superman t-shirt, a hat, a coffee tumbler, and a water bottle in addition to the official documents and box. The Superman-themed items were a huge hit, and I was very pleasantly surprised.

#2 - NEW British Sterling Men's Colognes: Private Stock and Reserve

British Sterling was originally one of the top 10 colognes of the 1970's. It's making a resurgence now with two new scents that are in the same league with current trendy scents for men.

British Sterling Reserve comes in a dashing black and silver bottle. It has a spicy, manly scent that is very sensual.

British Sterling Private Stock comes in a silver and white bottle that is very clean and sharp looking.  Crisp scents of cypress and cedar highlighted by lime and juniper make this scent invigorating. The background of amber and incense deepen the intensity.

I gave a bottle to each of the men in the house and they loved them . . . and, between you and me, they're both hard to please so this is quite a success.

Keep watching because there is a giveaway coming for a bottle of each of these scents later this week!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
