And the Award Goes To…

All the awesome dads out there. This Father’s Day they deserve the best. Our love, gratitude and plenty of treats! So, in honor of all the award-winning dads, here are a few perfect gift ideas.

For the Dad who brings laughs to all those around him. What better way to bring a smile to his face than with some playful desk accessories? The Big Bite™ stapler and letter opener are always grinning while performing their duties. Of course, for the beaming dad who has little artists showering him with daily artwork, our Desk Bunny scissors help Dad’s artists’ cutout their masterpieces and paperclips to hold onto the memories.

If keeping busy is Dad’s thing, introduce him to Adam the Doodles® Man and the Doodles® bicycle. In addition to holding down Dad’s paperwork and reminder notes, Adam can throw down some wicked dance moves. Displaying the Doodles® bicycle in Dad’s office would proudly represent his love for staying active. In the event that the weather or location prohibit Dad from moving around, he can always show off his croquet skills with our DesktopCroquet™ set.

In the air or on the road, if work keeps Dad going around the world, we have gifts that are perfect for him. Doodles® Destination sculptures bring home a piece of Dad’s travels to his home office. To further showcase Dad’s many journeys, we suggest the CrossCountry™ message board filled with destination notes and family photos. When home, Dad and the family could spend time putting together our 1000 piece puzzles from the PuzzleMap™ collection. Once complete, the puzzles can be glued and hung in Dad’s office.

When Dad is always fixing things or constantly grabbing the latest tools at the hardware store, he needs to surround himself with the handiest of gadgets. NailedIt™ pushpins can help Dad keep his “to do” list up-to date. And, keeping his pencils sharp won’t be a problem any longer with the FixIt™ pencil sharpener. This useful gizmo will undoubtedly fit right in with Dad’s other desk tools.



Always wanting to do his part in saving the planet for his children and future generations, Dad would surely appreciate some ECO gifts. Made from re-purposed newspaper, the Newsprint™ desk organizer and pencil cup will organize and decorate Dad’s office in eco-style. Don’t forget the desk drawers! Our beautiful teakwood Takara™ DrawerStore™ organizers can help Dad clear away all his work clutter. After cleaning out Dad’s desk, the Takara™ swingtop wastecan would be ideal for hiding away his discarded mess, whether it be garbage or recyclables.



William Shakespeare’s quote “To be, or not to be: that is the question” wooed many to fall in love with the written word. If Dad appreciates the celebrated words of William S. and other great writers, then our Shakespeare pen and eraser would be perfect additions to his desk space. In addition to cherishing his books, preserving them is crucial. With this in mind, why not gift Dad a large Takara™ pilaster shelf and our Epilogue™ bookend? They will surely embrace his prized collection.

Don’t forget, once you have showered dad with all these goodies, the most important gifts you can give dad this Father’s Day are a sincere “Thank you” and a humongous hug.
