With Father’s Day coming up on June 15th, I started thinking about what I’d like to give Jay…that would make my life better…isn’t that what wives do? We buy our husbands new T-shirts when we can’t stand the old ratty ones, we get them organizers so they can clean up the mess in the garage, or we get them sessions with a trainer so we don’t have a panic attack every time they eat a bag of Fritos .
Living in a loft, though, has taken several of the go-to Father’s Day items off my list…the new set of barbecue tools, a lounge chair for the back yard, a new rake. But I have hit on an item that would give Jay the freedom to do something he really loves to do…but up until now I don’t allow…keep reading!
Here’s the deal…we love having lots of tall bottles of cold water in the refrigerator. At dinner you can grab a few and put them on the table –no ice needed, no filling a pitcher and they’re great for entertaining, too. We buy the bottles of Lorina Sparkling Sodas at World Market and then reuse them as water bottles. But note the bottle on the right in this photo I’m not saying this happened, but I have to wonder…did someone drink out of THAT bottle?
So I’m thinking the perfect Father’s Day gift would be a custom bottle from Spoken Glass that has either “Dad,” “Jay,” “El Jefe” or some other endearing term lovingly inscribed on the bottle. Then–anytime my wonderful husband, and devoted father to Nick, wants to chug from one of the glass bottles, he has his own personal bottle to down as much agua fria as he can guzzle in one standing.
Here’s a sample of a custom option
Spoken Glass also does some really fun things with wine glasses. You can customize them with your own inscription or you can choose from their clever creations. Here’s one that resonates:
I could see Jay liking this, too–and so would I. Depending on the pour level, I’ll know whether to let him leave SportsCenter on during dinner or engage him in a meaningful conversation about our relationship.
There are stories about water having its own energy and a theory that connecting it with a positive message gives off more positive energy. So maybe the message for Father’s Day will be I ♥ Jay!
