Father’s Day Gift Ideas Ft. The Strap Smith

Father's Day Gift Ideas
Father’s Day is right around the corner. If you’re like me and had intentions of making something for daddy, but fell short due to work, and a busy schedule; you’ll definitely find some nice inspiration here. The last couple of Father’s Day’s I’ve created gift baskets, bbq themed, cooking themed, and random basketball baller gift combos. One action of kindness that will make your gift giving a lot easier is sticking to a theme of the gift, color trend, electronics, or just his interest. If you’re gift giving for your husband or own dad, keep in mind of what he’s into.
Above is a general idea of what I believe an active/ traveling type of guy would possibly appreciate. Out of all the items gathered, I believe you can’t go wrong with the apple watch.

Going Above And Beyond

Now, of course not everyone has $300-$400 dollars to easily spend. But here’s one thing I’d like to share –If you do have and extra $300-$500 willing to spend on Father’s Day is a fine and dandy idea. Purchase the most standard apple watch, if they already own an apple watch (EVEN BETTER!) Check out The Strap Smith. After being featured on one of my favorites YouTube vloggers vlogs, I couldn’t get this vendor off my mind!!! It’s purely genius to have a custom strap to an apple watch.
Apple Watch: $300-$1,700
The Strap Smith: $180-$200

DISCLAIMER: I do not have $700 easily to spend to do this, but if I did, I would go this route. 
Here are my true feelings on the apple watch.

Like every piece of new technology, I’d hold off and wait, until the next version.
Maybe next Father’s Day. But realistically, I may just order THIS.

Birthday Love

Last Friday on my birthday, two of my girlfriends treated me out to a cute little British Tea room in San Francisco, called LoveJoy’s Tea Room. Located right along Church St. in Noe Valley, this is a perfect place for a girls day out! Their scones and sandwiches are delightful. Their cute little tea sandwiches and scones are neatly arranged and displayed on plated tiers, served with delicious butter and jam that add that perfect touch to your toasty fresh scone. Warm scones, tasty tea sandwiches and a bottomless pot of tea await you at LoveJoy’s.

LoveJoy

As we were hosted to our reserved spot, located right at the front bench window, the seats were decorated with a number of various vintage pillows and cushions;I noticed a bouquet of flowers sitting on our table. Instinctively, before enjoying the beautiful bouquet I searched for a card, or any tag. FarmGirlFlowers, of San Francisco is were it was delivered from, and ordered by my younger brother! As I’m tearing up enjoying the beautiful gift arrangement of wildflowers, peonies, pink/lavender calla lilies, roses, and cabbage life blooms – I could only send positive energy and vibes to people all around me. The energy was definitely real. I was completely touched by the beautiful burlap wrapped gift.

To my brother Justin, if you’re reading this. Thank you so much for the special delivery. It really put a huge smile on my face.

Tea Table

Below, we ordered 3 variations of the Queen’s Tea (Tea Service). It includes your choice of two sandwiches,served with cabbage salad in a caraway cream dressing, organic spring greens, a scone with preserves and devon cream, a crumpet with meyer lemon curd, fresh fruit, a petit four and tea tea biscuit.

 

Tier

Shared between the three of us, we were table to try 6 of their sandwiches, which were: the classic cucumber & cream cheese, chicken-apple-walnut salad, smoked turkey & dijon, cream cheese & green apple, salmon mousse (which I didn’t try- due to sea food allergies), and the Bay shrimp & mayonnaise chicken asparagus. All were absolutely delicious!!

TeaRoom

Our selection of teas were Earl Grey, China Rose Petal and  Passion Fruit. Each of us had out own tea pot served to us, as well as a cute tea cup placed on two saucers, a provided strainer, milk and cream.

TeaRoom2

As my friends and I enjoyed our afternoon tea, we discussed upcoming plans for the weekend. Since, I’ve been living and breathing fitness and working out – the girls agreed to join me for a Sunday morning hike. We ended our late afternoon enjoying the sweet treats on chocolate bon bons, and adoring the cute quaint decor of the tea room, we topped it with photos taken at every corner of the tea room, and outside too! Literally, the tea room is filled with tea pots, lace vintage doilies, porcelain figurines, and amazing soft prints and textures complimented with distressed mix matched furniture.

As simple as the my birthday was spent, I couldn’t have spent it any other way! Short, sweet, and surrounded by good vibes, a good atmosphere, a delightful food and tea. It doesn’t take much for me to smile, and its the littlest details that make me swoon.

LoveJoys

Thank you all who wished me a Happy Birthday! Turning 29 definitely as made me realize all you need is love and joy to keep on smiling. I look forward to the new year at a new age, and pushing into my 30s!!!!
