Father’s Day is Sunday June 21st! I like to keep things interesting when it comes to gift giving. I always give the traditional Hallmark card, but I like to give unique gifts to my loved ones. This Father’s Day I bought my Dad a sketched portrait of the old Yankee Stadium. He is a huge baseball fanatic and loves all things NY Yankees! It will make a beautiful addition to the walls in our home. I know he will love it! I have compiled a list of fun gift ideas. There’s something for every kind of Dad in your life.

1. sporting event tickets to see his favorite team (my Dad loves baseball!)

2. Dollar Shave Club subscription service (www.dollarshaveclub.com)

3. brewery visit & tour

4. framed vinyl(s) of music by his favorite band or performer

5. Fitbit wireless performance band (www.fitbit.com)

6. Custom printed beer bottle labels (www.pinholepress.com)

7. portable phone charger station

8. Amazon Fire TV (www.amazon.com)

9. cologne gift set

10. tablet or e-reader

11. BBQ tools set

12. espresso coffee maker (www.bedbathandbeyond.com)

13. a day or weekend trip to his favorite city or travel destination

14. white water rafting or kayaking (the Poconos is an excellent location for this!)

15. painted portrait of his pet(s)

16. home beer brewing starter kit (www.mrbeer.com)

17. his favorite TV show on DVD (Seinfeld still remains the highlight of my Dad’s collection)

18.  custom sports jersey (www.modells.com – you can get any sport, team, and number)

19. Bespoke Post gift box OR gift subscription (www.bespokepost.com/gift)

20. TOMS classic slip-ons (keep dad looking cool AND give back at the same time! http://www.toms.com)

Every Dad is different with his own personality and interests. I hope this list of gift ideas has served as a source of inspiration for you this year. It’s nice to let the important men in our lives feel appreciated and important. Celebrate this Father’s Day with the special men in your life. And as always, be sure to thank them for all they do.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads  out there!

We’re getting our Shamrock Shake on!

Yes, I said it. We are getting our shamrock shake on. It just rolls off the tongue.

Happy March everyone! One of my favorite holidays is just around the corner. What holiday you may ask? St. Patrick’s Day that is! You may also be wondering why I enjoy it so much. Am I Irish? Italian. Do I like the color green? Not a fan. Do I enjoy eating meet & potatoes served with a perfectly chilled beer? Absolutely! Who doesn’t?! I can go on and on about why I love the day so much, but I don’t want to bore you all to death talking about myself. Whether you choose to celebrate St. Patty’s Day or not is all your own. Here at Fabric Textile Products, Inc. we are firm believers in the idea that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day and we are here to help with your holiday party planning! We are also HUGE fans of the delicious minty-fresh treat that McDonald’s rolls out for just a brief time every year… the legendary Shamrock Shake. Get your green sweaters and bagpipes ready! We’re having a party!

It’s all about the green. Green clothing. Green decorations. Green drinks. Green rivers (If you live in the windy city, that is). Green everything. Instead of going overboard on the festive color this year, why not try a fun pop of color on your dinner table? Instead of bringing out Grandma’s favorite green tablecloth, napkins, and plates this year, try something a bit more subtle. I like the idea of a bold napkin on a traditional white plate. The good people at Better Homes and Gardens featured a how-to video on the four leaf clover napkin fold in 2010. I thought this was perfect!

How adorable is the clover fold?! I absolutely love it. Click on the photo above to watch the full DIY tutorial video. I would show you myself, but I would probably embarrass myself. You could try this napkin with any one of our beautiful Milliken Signature Dinner Napkins. I suggest Fern or Clover, but you could also use Hunter or Forest too.

If origami or folding intimidates you, a simple alternative works just as well. Try one of these other options for a fun touch of green!

If you are feeling crafty and would like to make your own, we have a great selection of cotton prints by Quilting Treasures in stock as well!  All items mentioned can be purchased directly from our shop. Hopefully you have gotten some ideas for your holiday table and are feeling lucky!

Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I know I will!
