Read on to find both Father’s Day ideas from a female perspective and a Great Outdoors Month destination list. June is national Great Outdoors Month, so why not get something for yourself for Father’s Day that will enable you to step into nature? Use your new Father’s Day swag to visit these oh so hip destinations (Hey, Obama is doing it!).
Gifts for father’s day:
Selk’Bag: Want to look like Gumby? Get one of these body shaped sleeping bags and be comfortable while camping, walking around on a cold morning, or reading the paper. It sure will add laughter to any weekend with the family.
Aline shoe insert: Put your best foot forward with these effective shoe inserts built for the active person.
The Old Monk Sweater by Khunu: Made from 100 % Himalayan Yak wool. By purchasing this product you support Tibetan and Mongolian Nomadic families. The sweaters look great, are unbelievably soft, and perform well in the outdoors.
Organic Cotton Long sleeve T: If you want the Neighbor’s wife to cuddle up with you, or at least your wife to think that your chest is worth melting into, then you need to get this amazingly great looking long sleeve T from Pasque Flower Designs.
Destination for Outdoor fun:
Catskills: North of New York City, the Catskills offers luxury, simple hikes, and beautiful forested areas.
Muskoka: The G8 summit will be in the Muskokas north of Toronto this summer. Head to Huntsville, Ontario, and try out an Obama muffin (a café in town in getting ready for a presidential visit by naming its muffin). Yeah, I am not kidding? Do you want a muffin named after you? The Neighbor’s wife could maybe cook up a batch for you
Roaring Fork Valley: If you are into camping, fly fishing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, biking, or any other outdoor sport, you will be happy visiting the Roaring Fork Valley. This is a very family friendly area, and yet it is sophisticated enough that you don’t need to spend your time in commercial establishments.
Heidi Ahrens is not the neighbor’s wife of your dreams, but with her background in education, outdoor recreation, and parenting, she may be the one to give you the figurative spanking that will make you spend more quality, healthful time with your family. Don’t worry — her advice and tips are not scientifically proven, they are based on her work on OutdoorBaby.net, her life as a stay-at-home-mom to two young girls, and as the wife of a pretty cool guy.
