My husband did very well and treated me to the Louis Vuitton bag I had been lusting after for way too long as a combo Mother’s Day and (June) birthday gift. Pay back doesn’t have to be a real bi-atch.
Present dad with a mobile pocket projector so he can show off pictures of his beautiful family. In our family this would truthfully be more of a gift for moi and our kids who love looking at pictures of themselves. It can be hooked up to Dad’s smartphone, laptop or other electronic device to enlarge photos, videos, even work presentations. The bright 100-lumen LED lamp projects images up to 80″ diagonal. At $249.99, the devise doesn’t even have sticker shock.
When Ian was a baby, it used to be a Team Gutterman tradition for us to celebrate Father’s Day at Park Avenue Summer. The restaurant has since relocated from Park Avenue to Park Avenue South and still offers an irresistible brunch. “Winter, spring, summer of fall, all you got to do is call & I’ll be there….ain’t it good to know that you got a friend…” (Coincidentally, You’ve Got a Friend was my special song with my dad growing up)
Another top-notch restaurant that is a favorite of our family is Trattoria Il Mulino.
Other options for Father’s Day Brunch include live jazz band and $1 Bloody Mary’s and $1 Mimosas with Dock’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill brunch Pre Fixe option. Essex on Lower East Side will be serving their regular brunch menu with bacon Bloody Mortys and Beer Manmosas as well as their traditional brunch cocktails.
So I must admit that sometimes an email marketing campaign does work. When I received an email from Lester’s with Gift Suggestions under $30 for teachers, I immediately organized for my five year old son’s kindergarten class to chip in and get the Alex and Ani Apple Bangle for their teacher.
Confession: I also bought one for his first grade teacher in September! I took care of the sale over the phone, arranged for them to gift wrap the bracelets complimentary and then quickly ran in over the weekend to pick them up. So simple and I’m so excited to give these hard-working teachers who have been such a tremendous part of my son’s life something they will treasure.
Graduation is such an exciting time as someone who has worked so hard is about to embark on a new beginning. It’s always nice to have something special to mark the occasion and be able to reflect back on. For the successful graduate, Alex and Ani has a graduation cap bangle.
