This is a special edition for Father's Day, which is a week from today. If you're struggling for a gift idea, I've got a few that will help you score points with your Dad. If you had to send your Dad back to Heaven, like me, you may find something for yourself. After all, you deserve it, right?
I hear you - BORING! But wait, what if I told you about a company that sells clothes to contractors that you can wear, and your Dad? Clothes that are really durable and GREAT for everyday use? I thought that would get your attention.
Last week, I got an email from the public relations (PR) person from Duluth Trading Company. What really put my head on a swivel was the mention of underwear. Okay, we're all adults here, so let me tell you why this interested me.
Over the past year, I've switched from the traditional jockey shorts to trunks. But not just ordinary floppy trunks. I've been wearing Hanes trunks that are a blend of spandex and cotton. WOW! They've been the most comfortable underwear I've ever worn.
Duluth Trading has their own line of Buck Naked Ultra-Light underwear that rivals the Hanes trunks I've been wearing. They sent me some to test including a tee shirt. These garments are 93 percent nylon and 7 percent spandex. I've never worn pantyhose, and never intend to, but are these things comfortable. I LOVE the tee shirt. And just as some of the reviews state, you don't even know you're wearing underwear it's that comfortable.
They are a little pricey, but I'm impressed. I'll be wearing these on the ski slopes this winter as you never want to wear cotton when perspiring in the cold.
Two thumbs and two fingers up for this underwear! Your Dad will LOVE it, trust me. Buck Naked underwear and tee shirts come in some spiffy colors. Check them out. I'm going to get some of the red ones for sure. If you're an ND fan, you'll love the green ones.
Check out all the other clothing items while at the Duluth Trading Company site. They have a huge assortment of things your Dad, or you, will LOVE. Be sure to look at the the long tail tee shirt. I wear those bad boys each week during winter up in NH.
Finally, they have an entire Women's section, so ladies look around!
Do you think your Dad would want a unique baseball-style hat? You'll work hard to find one more trendy than this one from Gorilla Glue!
Last week while I was in Erie, PA, torturing my feet playing that flag football game, I got to ride a traditional bicycle. I can't remember the last time I did that! My neighbor Dave in NH rides a mountain bike around many of our back roads and I was sort of interested but never acted on the urge. But after riding the bike in Erie, I'm definitely going to get a neat bike that will let me cruise the back roads of NH.
Well, the first place that came to mind to start looking was my friend Steve's website. It's BestWebBuys.com. You can price bikes and MANY other things there. Wait and see!
This comparison shopping website was one of the FIRST ones on the Internet! It's a survivor to be sure. My guess is that you've never heard of it, but once you visit it, you'll bookmark it for sure. You can save tons of money using Steve's site on a regular basis. Instead of you checking around yourself for the BEST price on things like books, electronics, music, video, etc., and oh yes, BIKES!, let Steve and his team do it for you.
All you do is select what you want, and Steve goes in nanoseconds to find the best price for you out on the Web. You then click it and buy. It's like falling off a log.
Happy Father's Day Shopping!
