Last month, I asked my husband what he wanted for Father’s Day.
After careful deliberation, he turned to me and said one word. “Socks.”
I waited for him to elaborate, whether to add to the list of things he’d like, or to clarify that what he really wanted were some fancy-pants socks. Perhaps iSocks had recently hit the market, promising to simultaneously measure his heart rate and blood pressure, play music, cure cancer and massage the soles of his sore feet.
But no. Socks. Just socks. Socks were the beginning, middle and end of his Father’s Day wish list.
On some level, this makes me happy. When the only thing your husband can think of that will make his life is better is some cushioned comfort for his tootsies, we must be doing okay.
But on another level, this makes me angry. Socks? What am I supposed to do with that? WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET HIM?
So I contacted perennial favourites Bright Star Kids for some inspiration. (You might remember them from such posts as Back to school time and Reno reveal – the stairwell landing.) I hoped they had something unique and fun for Father’s Day, and they didn’t disappoint.
Bright Star Kids has a range of father-themed clothing for fathers and for their kids. And some of the items are so cute!
Regular readers of this blog will know that music is very important to me, with weekly toddler music group an important part of our family calendar. The idea of theming some matching Father’s Day clothing around this was too good to ignore.
For my husband, I selected the Music Massage Men’s T-shirt, with ‘Hawker band rehearsal’ printed underneath the musical instruments. It’s a white tee with musical instruments printed on the back, which the children then ‘play’ while he’s resting on the floor, effectively massaging his back.
Sound relaxing? We’re still deciding about that one. But the fun is undeniable!
For my daughter, I selected the Dad Rocks T-shirt. It’s fun, and it fits perfectly with the band rehearsal theme. And it’s accurate. He really does rock.
For my son, I looked beyond the Father’s Day range and selected a gorgeous tee from the regular range. He just loves his AB/CD T-shirt! You can personalise this tee, but rather than print his name on his t-shirt, I went with simple text so that we can pass it along to a cousin when he outgrows it.
Turnaround was amazingly fast. I received these personalised items less than a week after I ordered them, so there’s still plenty of time to order before Father’s Day.
The best part? Bright Star Kids currently has two discounts available. The first: if you buy three or more items of clothing, you’ll receive 15% off your order. The second: if your order is $60 or over, you’ll receive free delivery.
And if you order the items my adorable family is modelling, you’ll benefit from both. WINNER.
Have you ordered any Father’s Day presents? If you ordered these tees, how would you personalise them?
