Herriott Grace: Handmade Gifts by Father and Daughter

Herriott Grace: Lance and Nikole Herriott

Lance & Nikole Herriott

The story of Herriott Grace is all the sweeter with Father’s Day coming soon. It’s one I’ve wanted to share, but something would happen every time their stock was replenished—they’d sell out so darn fast! Which does you no good gift-givers. So I’ve waited.

This month though, this month is different.

Herriot Grace lets admirers know when their beautiful goods are back in stock by way of a monthly newsletter. For June they’ve given us a heads up. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 13, at 6pm EDT.

Darth Vader & Son: Imagining Darth the Dad

Darth Vader and Son - book cover

Ready for one of the most adorably geeky what-ifs you’ve ever seen? It’s a new book just in time for Father’s Day—Darth Vader and Son.

I. Know! It’s everything you’re imagining right this moment.

Dreamed up by celebrated illustrator and author Jeffery Brown, the book considers: What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if “Luke, I am your father” was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad?

Presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away, Darth Vader and Son addresses everything from Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star to using the Force to raid the cookie jar.

A great gift for expecting dads, granddads, geeky dads, movie buff dads, and every dad in between.

And now, a couple pages for you and a quirky book trailer too. Enjoy!

Gifts That Give Back: ManCans Man Scented Candles

ManCans Man Scented Candles

Hart Main’s sister was selling candles for a school fundraiser when he had the thought, “Why don’t people sell candles with scents that men like?”

An entrepreneurial 13-year-old, Hart ran with the idea and chose cans over glass jars to differentiate his candles from those he saw everywhere else. Little did he know that selling man scented candles would lead to an opportunity to help so many people.

Dads are hard to shop for to be sure, so I especially love these for Father’s Day, but they of course make great gifts all year long—for birthdays, anniversaries, wedding favors, and they’re really fun graduation gifts too!
