Great gifts, Dads will love – and will love your Dad back.

MBT Sneakers

MBT sneakers are the easiest work out known to man…I mean Dad.  Literally, walking to the beach, walking the dog, walking around the house – they are the first physiological footwear that have a positive effect on the whole body, activating a large number of stabilizing muscles throughout the whole body when walking or standing.  Spring and summer styles feature a new lower sole.   “Aren’t those sneakers fantastic?” Amy Cohen, a regular boardwalk-er said to me recently when she looked down at my sneakers.  “Tell the people that make them I love them.”  Yes, Amy, I will and they are.  Shown in Safiri Navy, $215.   TheWalkingCompanyMBT Mens

Found My Animal

Yes, you have been replaced by your Dad’s four legged friend.  Found My Animal leashes fit everything your Dad wants in a lead.  Each Found leash is made of cotton canvas dock line rope and marine-grade solid bronze clips on either end.  The leash can be worn as a belt, across your chest or clipped without the concerns of a knot.  Each leash is numbered and handmade in New England.  Every leash I’ve seen is either too froofy or too industrial.  The Found My Animal founders have created the perfect leash and collar.  Also, 25% of profits go to a non-profit dedicated to finding homes for animals.  Leashes and collars vary in sizes.  FoundMyAnimal


Whether you are a dad to a child, adult or puppy (like me), cheers to every dad everywhere.
