Now its high time to dedicate a post to our dear ol’ Dads!  My own father is a hero in my eyes.  A gentleman in every way.  Through continuous and unfailing example, he has shown me how to love unconditionally, lead without force, and to guide with compassion.  I will never ever forget the moment I left for college.  It was probably something like 4 or 5am, on my way the airport to catch a flight to Utah.  He gave me a hug at the door and completely choked up, and said “I’ve been thinking of all the things I wanted to tell you, but all I can say is ‘I love you'”.  Break my little 17-year-old heart.  I’ve often thought of that moment, and how when my own children leave me–for kindergarten, high school, someday college–above all the things I will have told them and taught them at that point, above all I want them to know that I love them.  Thank you, Dad, for all the love!

Ok, enough sap.  Now on to two companies your own Dads will love!  PROBAR and FITS Sock Co.

 The first manly item we have to showcase today are the delicious PROBAR Meal™ bars!  These 3 oz. bars are jam packed full of natural goodness, condensed to be an entire meal in a bag.  They contain fruit, nuts, and seeds, mostly still completely intact so that you can SEE the entire fruit, nut, or seed.  These are BEEFY!  These are so nutrient dense and full of raw ingredients that they make a great meal replacement.

My husband and I enjoyed tasting the PROBAR Meal™ Variety 12-Pack, which contains one of everything you love!  Seriously, what a great variety of flavors: Original Blend, Whole Berry Blast, Superfood Slam, Superfruit Slam, Superberry & Greens, Chocolate Mint, Oatmeal Raisin, Koka Moka, Superfruit Slam, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, and Peanut Butter!

Look, you can SEE what they consist of–packed full of fruit, nuts, and seeds, fully intact.  Umm, yes, these would definitely be considered full meals.  I could barely finish one by myself before I felt full and satisfied.   Look at this Superberry & Greens on the left.  Reminds me a green smoothie!  Yummy!  If your man is in to nutritious, nutrient-packed and conveniently packaged meals-on-the-go, he’ll be all over these!IMG_3877

One winner will also receive the PROBAR Mealâ„¢ Variety 12-Pack, sold for $35.48!

And next we have a Father’s Day gift that will please any man who wears socks.  Yes, that should include every guy I know.  Introducing, the fantastic socks of FITS Sock Co.!

IMG_3931 copyFITS socks are made from merino wool, and are specialized to create a perfect fit for your feet!  They have three points of interest–the dynamic toe cup that conforms to the shape of your toes, the heel lock that keeps the sock correctly on your heel, and a full contact cuff that comfortably stays up your leg.

We were sent a Business Crew pair in Chestnut, and the hubby is really impressed!!  At first he was skeptical about how exceptional they could be for a pair of socks, but after he returned home after wearing them the full work day, he was a believer.  Very comfortable, very form-fitting, and very high-quality.  Don’t tell him I told you this, but he loved them so much, he wore them two days in a row without washing.  He said they kept his feet very comfortable and that he could really tell a difference between this FITS pair and other socks.  I told him its definitely because of the merino wool!

IMG_3936copy

FITS carries socks for hiking, ski/snow, hunting/sporting, running, business/casual, and biking!  THESE are the activities and situations where I’m sure sock you’re wearing makes a huge difference.  Underneath boots and specialty shoes, these are each customized to provide the right cushion and comfort for your activities.

One lucky man is ALSO going to win three pairs of merino wool socks!  1 running, 1 hiking, and 1 casual, making this entire prize over $80!

WeWood Watches {GIVEAWAY}–CLOSED

Well, I don’t know about you ladies, but I had a fabulous Mother’s Day. My hubby let me sleep in, made breakfast for me and the kids, helped get the kids ready for church so I had time to curl my hair, and then he made dinner AND cleaned it up. He also got me beautiful flowers, a thoughtful card and a hand-made gift from the kids (which was hand-made at Lowe’s and stamped with their logo. Thanks, Lowe’s. I always wanted to remember you on Mother’s Day). But anyway, our big day is over, and now it’s time to start thinking about how to spoil our men for their big day in less than a month! Luckily, we here at Dandy Giveaway have got some cool giveaways coming down the pipes made especially for that special guy in your life. My first one is a super cool watch made out of wood. Yes, wood!

wwlogo2012

WeWOOD Watches specializes in crafting watches out of wood. But don’t worry; they’re not deforesting the earth to make their watches, all of their watches are made from recycled wood, remnant pieces of wood flooring, or wood that is otherwise unusable and/or sustainable. Cool, right? On their website they list where the wood comes from for each style of watch they make. For example, this Jupiter watch in Black was made from Blackwood, which, according to the description on their site, is very easy to grow and therefore very sustainable.

jupiter-black1

Even cooler is the fact that for every watch purchased, they plant a tree! They work with the American Forests non-profit as well as Trees for the Future to plant new trees all over the world. Their philosophy is “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” They are definitely doing their part to preserve and rebuild our ecosystem, so you can feel good about buying one of their watches. And they have tons of cool ones to choose from! You can check out their collection here, but below are some of my favorites:

moon-brown1

This watch, the Moon in Brown, is dainty enough it could be worn by a female. Beautiful styling.

metis-chocolate2

And how stylish does the Metis in Chocolate look? This could easily make the transition from work to home to church no problem. A very versatile piece.

I was sent the Date watch in Beige (which comes from Maple wood, if you’re interested) and my hubby loves it! It’s super light (1.5 ounces!), which is nice for him because he’s used to wearing watches that weigh upwards of 3 lbs. Seriously. He loves that it’s unique and definitely a conversation-starter, but not so “unique” that it comes off as weird. If your man works in a field where he would be exposed to water constantly you might want to consider a different watch; it’s definitely not water-proof but “splash-proof” (wood expands when it gets wet, so over time, repeated water exposure would cause the links to become less flexible). You can clean the watch with a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice, and changing the battery and removing the links to make it smaller are all done just like a regular watch, so there’s no surprises there.

Even on my hubby’s uber-hairy arms (love you babe!), this watch looks cool, and I definitely like it a whole lot more than his old plastic-y “sport” watch. WeWOOD’s watches are definitely one-of-a-kind and something you can feel good about buying for your Husband/Dad/Brother/whoever this Father’s Day. Enter the giveaway below to win the exact watch featured here, the Date in Beige:

I love to follow blogs on Google Reader, and one friend posted a blog entry with a picture of her new necklace a couple of weeks ago.  It was a small charm of her husband’s first initial on a delicate chain – simple but meaningful, and I wanted one, too!

Something About Silver offers the exact type of necklace I was coveting, and I jumped at the chance to review one similar to my friend’s.  After a quick e-mail conversation about what I wanted, my perfect necklace was in the mail and on my doorstep just a couple of days later.  Extremely fast shipping, and amazing customer service!  I absolutely loved the packaging – it came in the most adorable box tied with ribbon, and the necklace was placed in a bag inside that box.  I put my necklace on immediately after receiving it in the mail and have worn it every day since.

This would be the PERFECT Valentine’s Day gift, and after browsing through the Something About Silver website, I found a variety of other meaningful gifts for family members and friends for any holiday.  Here are a few of my favorites:

stacking ring

I love the idea of a personalized ring, and I especially loved these Stacking Rings with names hand-stamped on each one individually.

circle

I also love the versatility of the Circle of Love Bracelet that could be used for either a mom or a grandmother.

dad-keychain-600x398

I especially loved the choices for men — it can be tricky to find thoughtful, tear-inducing gifts for them!  This Dad Keychain could also work as a great Grandparents’ Day gift, or could be given to a brother or new father.

guitar-pick-600x398

And, for the musician in us all — the hand-stamped Guitar Pick.  🙂

All of the jewelry and gifts from Something About Silver are handmade and the personalization is hand-stamped, making these items even more meaningful.  Head over to Something About Silver to check out their wide selection of amazing jewelry, then head back here to enter to win!
