Every Father’s Day, birthday and holiday, I ask my husband what to get for him and the answer is always a vague answer that usually leaves me with no direction and no idea what to get for him. This year, I took a look at Amara to get ideas for him and found the perfect gift. My husband doesn’t like STUFF. He likes as little of everything as possible and he likes for everything to have meaning and purpose. Not only did I find the perfect Father’s Day unique gift idea on Amara, I also love their #DrinkWithDad campaign for Father’s Day that’s encouraging folks to actually sit and enjoy some 1:1 time with their dad over drinks for a chance to win an epic trip.
My husband is in some ways a guy’s guy. He loves sports and beer and hanging with his friends. He also really loves planting and taking care of our apartment. We live in Brooklyn and plants need to be beautiful, elegant and fit into the decor of our home because of the size of our place. I found these stunning wooden planters on Amara.com and showed them to him. He fell in love with the clean, natural look.
When they arrived, we discovered that the size is perfect. We laid out 2 on our dining room table. Our dining room table is the first thing you see when you enter our apartment. So it’s important to us for it to be beautiful. The wooden planters fit perfectly against our table cloth and runner and the shot of green adds life to our home.
I also love that the planters are coated in plastic on the inside so that no water leaks out. My hubby and son got down to business and potted a few plants this past weekend. It was really fun to see my son getting his hands dirty with his dad. City kids don’t get to do that nearly as much as they should.
My son had an amazing time and my husband loved the experience and he especially loved the planters.
Amara’s Father’s Day campaign is called #DrinkWithDad. They’re encouraging folks to spend some quality time with their dads or their paternal figures by sharing a drink with them. Try a beer, milk, water or juice. Whatever gets the conversation going will do the trick. Their favorite #DrinkWithDad moment will win an exciting experience day for two! From luxury dining overlooking the Thames to soaring through the air on a zip line, Virgin Experience Days have something to suit every type of dad. Click here to enter.
