Captain of My Family Ship: My Father's Day Journey

Father is like the captain of the family ship, so saying "Happy Father’s Day" in style is essential. My dad, who is in his 70s, appreciates thoughtful gestures more than expensive gifts. So, I plan to organize a relaxed gathering at home with his favorite foods.

During my childhood, I remember one thing he always encouraged me to do: “Stay informed about the economy, geopolitics, financial markets, and how globalization impacts our lives.” To ensure this, he made me read titles, columns, or just picture captions of financial news every day. Back then, I didn't fully appreciate it, but now I understand its value. After pondering gift ideas for him, I concluded that this year I will give him something simple and meaningful: a subscription to the Financial Times and a scented candle from Manly Indulgence to brighten up his personal space. Isn't it interesting how the lessons we resisted as kids become cherished wisdom as adults? What is something your dad made you do that you now appreciate?

Selecting the perfect candle for Father's Day can be more than just finding a fragrance; it is about choosing one that reflects your dad's unique personality and interests. Here are suggestions for candles that match different father personalities: 

The Adventurer Dad

Consider candles like Dark Forest from the Signature Collection, Rugged Terrain from the Adventure Collection, and Patchouli Musk from the All-American Collection to complement his adventurous spirit.

The Sports Enthusiast Dad

These energizing fragrances will evoke the excitement of game day and keep his spirits high even during the off-season. Explore candles such as Citrus Teakwood from the All-American Collection and Golf Greens from the Classic+ Collection to complement his passion for sports. 



The Intellectual Dad

If your dad is a bookworm or enjoys quiet evenings with a mug of coffee, opt for a candle with warm and comforting scents like mahogany, leather, and old books. Consider candles such as Mahogany Leather from the All-American Collection and Top Guy from the Classic+ Collection. These fragrances will create a cozy atmosphere, perfect for deep conversations and contemplation.



The DIY Dad 

If your dad is handy around the house and loves to tinker in his workshop, opt for a candle with rustic scents like woodsy pine, oak, and cedar. These aromas will transport him to his happy place, surrounded by his tools and projects. Check out candles such as Peppered Pine from the Adventure Collection, Night Dune from the Adventure Collection, and Black Pine & Oak Moss from Signature Collection to enhance his workshop experience.



The Gourmet Dad 

For the dad who enjoys cooking and appreciates gourmet cuisine, choose a candle with rich and indulgent scents like vanilla, coffee, and cinnamon. These decadent fragrances will satisfy his senses and complement his culinary adventures. Consider options such as Vanilla Warm Tobacco from the All-American Collection, Perform from the Contemporary Collection, and Full Throttle from the All-American Collection to elevate his cooking experience. 



The Zen Dad

If your dad values peace and tranquility, select a candle with calming scents like lavender, chamomile, and eucalyptus. These soothing aromas will help him unwind after a long day and find his inner peace. Consider options such as Juniper Cypress, Last Call, from the Classic+ Collection and Free Spirit candles to enhance his relaxation experience. 

By choosing a candle that matches your dad's personality, you can give him a thoughtful and personalized gift that he will deeply appreciate on Father's Day.
