Kindred Tea Time: Honoring Fathers


What are some meaningful ways
you're hoping to honor the fathers in your life this year?

Father’s Day Boxes by Fabled Bookshop

"I love the Father’s Day Boxes @fabledbookshop has curated - with different types for different Dad personalities. I’m eyeing the Fandom and Lore or the Master Chef version for my husband. I’m thrilled to see small businesses continue to have creative ideas to help people honor their loved ones during Pandemic-tide."

"Coolest Pop Ever" Card by January Letterpress

"Beautifully designed cards are a must for me anytime I want to make someone feel loved, so I’ll grab one from @januaryletterpress and write how special my Dad is to me." 

Kamado Grill by Char-Griller

"The only thing my Father-in-Law loves more than grilling is grilling with an audience! So there will be talking about grilling, showing off his grilling, and giving out samples. Naturally, I will be right beside him to talk, admire, and receive samples of burnt ends. He has one of those green-egg-style grills that he found at an auction and pampers. I found a few knock-offs on Amazon that don't cost upwards of $1,000! 😲" 

Camping Trip to a Local State Park

"Jason (my husband) loves experiences over gifts. I know his love tank will be filled on Father’s Day with a family camping trip. I am so excited that Texas State Parks are now open again for overnight reservations and we can start using our Texas State Parks Pass again!"


Keepsake Memory Book

 "I have been wanting to have/start a written record of my Dad and Mom’s lived experiences - their stories and memories. This keepsake interview book looks like the perfect way to do just that!"

Frostie Root Beer

"Since my dad passed away two years ago, Father’s day has become a bittersweet holiday. In some ways the day stirs grief, in other ways it validates the deep void that I feel. The past two years, I’ve made a point to drink an ice cold frostie root beer, one of his favorite drinks. We tell stories, look at pictures, and remember him. "

Making a Donation


"The men in my life are particularly hard to buy for. They want very little and tend to buy for themselves before I  have the chance. So I'm making donations in their names to causes that are dear to their hearts. For my daddy that's Global Banjara Baptist Ministries International. For my husband, the Black Lives Matter Global Network. For my brother, the Travis Mills Foundation."
