It has been a quiet few months here at Batenburgs after cooling down from the craziness of Mother's Day, but while we are introducing new gift baskets and hampers as well as new products, we are also gearing up for the next gift giving occasion, Father's day!
Every Father's Day, we spend the day acknowledging fatherhood and the paternal bond between family and father. Showing love and honouring the protector of the family, the helping hand when you need a bit of muscle in a situation and the man who makes the inflatable go faster on the water park slides.
For some people the father they are acknowledging may not be blood related or biological father, it can be a step-father, uncle or family friend who stepped up and took the role of the father figure.
It's also a day we spend remembering the fathers or father figures who are no longer with us but remain in our presence through memories and spirit. Getting together with friends and family, telling stories and relieving memories as I'm sure we all have a vault full of dad related anecdotes.
While Mother's Day tends to be quite a difficult occasion when it comes to finding the perfect gift for dear mother, Father's Day can be straight forward and remain close to traditional idea of a classic Kiwi father. When we think about gift giving for dad, we think either beer, BBQ accessories, watches or socks. Perhaps this year is the year to try something new, why not a gift basket from Batenburgs?
With a wide range of hampers to choose from in our selection, we have plenty to recommend for dad this year.
After a hard day let dad sit back, put his feet up, grab a beer and enjoy it with delicious tasty snacks. The reason why you'll give this awesome gift is to let him enjoy the pleasure of a cool beer knowing that you're thinking of them. It's a gift that screams Father's Day, with the tradition bar favoured salted peanuts, crackling pepper bites and delicious chocolate from Whittakers. It's simple, affordable and rich in love.
