The first Father’s Day was celebrated in 1910 at the YMCA in Spokane, Washington. Sonora Smart Dodd organized the event to honor her dad, a single parent of six children. Ever since, mom and the kids have been stressing about finding that perfect gift.
Some dads have everything; others don’t seem to want much, and even more would prefer to avoid all the fuss. No worries this year, we’ve got you covered and then some. Don’t even think about buying that special guy another pair of socks or a tie to compete with all the other stuff in his dresser or closet. There’s a big, cozy bed rest pillow just waiting to give dad a hug.
Our Husband Pillow is a unique and thoughtful gift. It’s a generous reading pillow with arms, side, and back pockets for gear, a detachable bolster, and a convenient handle. Available in dad’s favorite color and three distinct styles, this pillow will complement any home decor. Choose from our traditional line, the fabulous Faux Fur Collection, or the popular Aspen Edition.
All our pillows come with washable covers made of soft but durable fabric that’s so easy to care for. The Aspen and Faux Fur covers are reversible offering two attractive choices, plush microfiber on one side, and sleek microsuede on the other.
We guarantee this surprise package will get a thumbs up from dad, plus provide a day of fun for the entire family. Here are some activities that will make Father’s Day a holiday the whole gang will enjoy.
Real Men Want Breakfast in Bed
Although they might not like to admit it, dads can use a little pampering too. Why not launch the holiday with the full monty—pancakes, bacon, and eggs in bed. Dad’s new Husband Pillow will make a lazy morning even better. Our shredded memory foam fill provides just the right amount of support to enjoy a stack of flapjacks from the coziest spot in the house. Here’s a link to a recipe Dad and the whole family will love. And, if dad decides that his new pillow could be a little plumper, simply unzip the secret compartment and add enough extra fill to provide the perfect amount of oomph.
Sports Sunday’s Best Seat in the House
If your dad is a sports fan, his new TV pillow just made viewing a whole lot better. Pop some corn and a cold one, gather the gang, and help him root for his favorite team. The Husband Pillow’s generous side and back pockets make it easy for Dad to keep track of remotes, glasses, phone, and anything else he needs to enjoy an afternoon of armchair exercise. After the game, why not spend some time viewing family photos and videos on the big screen. Or better yet plan a special video montage of dad’s most memorable moments.
A Gamer’s Comfort Zone
Any dad who spends time gaming is going to have a terrific day. A great back support pillow takes the stress off the entire upper body. That means time on the computer just got a lot more comfortable. A super thoughtful family might also visit the app store to pick out a few new games with dad and give him the space to become the master of those exciting universes. Consider taking out the garbage, mowing the lawn, or cleaning the garage, so that dad can have some quality hours to enjoy all his toys.
The Late Night Reader’s Best Friend
Burning the midnight oil with a page-turner can mean a sore neck and aching shoulders in the morning. That’s why our reading pillow is every book fan’s best friend. Dads who love literature will also enjoy binging on their favorite stories in complete comfort. After he’s opened his gift, why not accompany dad to his favorite bookstore and help him pick out a few great new thrillers. Or, if your pops is an e-reader, study the reviews, and make him a list of the new titles he’ll enjoy most.
Don’t Forget Grandpa
Grandfathers love our Husband Pillow as much or more than dads. Surprise yours. He’ll wonder how he ever lived without our amazing backrest pillow with arms. Older adults enjoy memory foam’s firm yet gentle support. If you’re not able to be with grandparents on this special day schedule a Zoom call so that the whole family can watch the guys open their gifts together. Record the event to store up plenty of memories for future holidays.
Share Some Father’s Day Fun
While dad and grandpa are enjoying their amazing new reading pillows, we invite the rest of the family to have some laughs together with these Father’s Day fun facts:
- Father’s Day wasn’t too popular at first. Although Mother’s Day became an official holiday in 1914, it took until 1972 for Richard Nixon to put the government’s stamp on Father’s Day.
- The rose is the official Father’s Day flower.
- A necktie is the most popular Father’s Day gift. But that doesn’t mean it’s the gift dads love to receive. We’d put the Husband Pillow at the top of that list.
- In 2014, the US Census Bureau estimated there were 72.2 million fathers in the United States.
- Over 40 countries have a designated day to honor fathers.
- In Germany, Father’s Day falls on Thursday. To celebrate dads get together around “bollerwagons” filled with wine, beer, schnapps, and grillable meats.
- In Thailand, Father’s Day falls on the king’s birthday. Thais celebrate by giving their father or grandfather a Canna flower.
Share the Love
No matter how or where you celebrate the day be sure to give dad some hugs. We guarantee there isn’t a gift that will please him more than knowing how deeply he is appreciated. But we also don’t think he’d mind a little icing on the cake. When you serve those pancakes for breakfast, make a Husband Pillow part of the big surprise.
