This year for Father’s Day I thought I would try something a little different.
You see…..the most amazing, wonderful, incredible, tool-infatuated father lives here at Thistlewood.
And every year when I give him his gift…..
…..I get it almost right.
I mean….really, really close.
Like when he opens up the package and he see the name brand and it’s the kind he likes and his eyes light up….
….and then he tears off the rest of the wrapping paper.
And tries valiantly to tell me how amazing it is. 🙂
He reassures me over and over and over again.
How it’s exactly what he wanted and how lucky he is how it’s okay that he has a tool just like it and it’s okay that it’s not cordless and it’s okay that it’s only 18V.
And then he smiles at me.
And I know that it really is okay…..and okay is fine…..
….but I want it to be perfect.
So this year I tried something different.
Together….we put together an entire collection on ebay of his favorite tools.
Tools that he loves.
Tools that really work for all the projects he wants to create.
Tools that come in the right size and shape and style and color.
In other words…..
…tools that are perfect. 🙂
Like this one.
I mean….seriously? A radio with a battery pack where you can charge all your tools and it has a CD adapter?
I didn’t even know that something like this existed.
But he did.
And now I’m going to shop the collection that we created together.
No more awkward smiles when he sees his father’s day gift.
No more valiant attempts to convince me he didn’t already have 20 of them.
This year is going to be different.
I told him I would pick a few items off the list….but he wouldn’t know which ones.
That way it would still be a surprise…..
….a surprise that will be absolutely perfect.
PS I also created another fun collection of unusual gifts for Father’s day.
Like a bike that folds up.
Or a personal caddy that’s totally electronic
Or a putter that’s an umbrella.
