Father’s Day is just around the corner. Have you thought about what you’re getting that special man in your life? As always, I will be sharing a gift guide, but I had to drop a little personal story and a gift that really is something for the man’s man. The WeWOOD watch and sunglasses.
Father’s Day has always been a difficult holiday for me and I don’t talk much about my dad to anyone. I’ve never met my real father, nor will I ever meet him. People ask me all the time if I want to find him, and I don’t. He felt I was not a priority in his life and I will never give him the satisfaction of being a priority in mine. I was blessed to have my grandparents raise me. I grew a very strong bond to my grandfather. He was my dad. I called him dad, I did everything with him.
When I was 10, he was diagnosed with a rare lung disease. The only way he would survive was to receive a lung transplant. He never got it. At 12, I said good bye to one of the most important people in my life. I still tear up writing about it now. He was a truly amazing man.
Fast Forward 20 years to today. I have a fantastic step dad that loves me and my family like we were his. I am married to a wonderful man that is a spitting image of my father. Literally, everything my husband does, is my dad. He is teaching them about nature, cars and boyish things, just like my dad did with me. He is taking them out in the world and showing them all the things I can’t teach them like camping, fishing and bugs.
With Father’s Day around the corner, what better way to say thank you to my husband for giving our girls the same love for nature that my dad gave to me, than to give him a watch that embodies nature. The WeWOOD Kappa Nut Watch and the Crux Sunglasses is just that. Eco-friendly, made of 100% natural wood, or a cotton and wood blend, it’s the perfect gift for the nature lover. The added bonus is for every watch or sunglasses purchased, WeWOOD plants a tree. “You buy a WeWOOD, We plant a tree.” That’s my gift to my dad. I know he is up there watching over my family and loving my baby girls, just like he loved me. That tree will grow big and strong for others to enjoy, which is exactly what my dad and my husband would want. So, cheers to Father’s Day, spoil your husband or your dad with the gift that will keep on giving.
