My dad rules. And I bet your dad, or husband, partner, lover, father of your child(ren) or father figure, does too. Dads who rule need gifts that aren’t the norm. There are no socks, neckties or golf clubs here. Today’s post features tasteful gifts for that special dad and food lover in your life.
This 11 oz. rocks glass etched etched with a map of your loved one’s favorite city is an all encompassing gift for those who love to drink local. The UnCommonGreen has hundreds of cities available, but I’m partial to Omaha and Toronto. In addition to cocktail glasses, they also offer etched pint glasses (Lincoln, NE represent!) and wine glasses.
