Fathers’ Day is just around the corner, and let’s be honest, this year -yes, the awesome 2020 everyone was enthusiastically looking forward and that rewarded us with one blunder after the other- calls for strengthening family ties more than ever. Dads deserve extra pampering during these difficult times. They’ve been cooped up inside for too long and have had to adjust to a new-normal they had probably never been exposed to: WFH, spending days on end with the kids or with the wife, no boys’ nights out…
Having that in mind, we’ve paired watches with items ranging from backpacks to electronics and glassware, that might make one nice big gift this Fathers’ Day. And some of those can be enjoyed by the whole family, but sshhhh, we don’t want you to seem selfish!
Cheers To Better Times To Come!
