Massages in Huntington Beach for Dad too!

FathersdayFather’s day is Sunday June 15, just 18 days away. I know that probably seems like plenty of shopping time but boy do these late Spring days fly by with school getting out and lots and lots of lawn work to be done! To lighten my load a bit this year I am choosing gift certificates for massages in Huntington Beach for my husband and my father. I know they will appreciate the time away to themselves to just relax and have nobody ask anything of them and it saves me time, which always seems to run short.

Men can benefit from massage if they have pain, especially in common areas like the neck and back. Massage for men helps them to recover more quickly from exercise or athletic pain and it is a stress reliever. All of these items I know the men in my life will appreciate and if they are feeling relief they will be more at ease which is beneficial to their families as well. If you have yet to purchase a gift for the men in your life for Father’s day, try giving them a gift certificate for a massage, I think they will be pleased.

If he isn’t totally into camo there is an all black option too. I don’t know any guy that wouldn’t want a great quality backpack for traveling.

Give a Homemade Gift

There is nothing more personal or thoughtful than a homemade gift. With the type of idea websites on the internet today it is easy to find an idea for just about any occasion and anyone. Home made Mother’s day and Father’s day gifts are so thoughtful and appreciated immensely by parents. Even when they come from a grown up child. I made my Mom a garden stepping stone two years ago for Mother’s day and she loved it. It was  fun project to do with my siblings too so that was a bonus. Some great sites I use to come up with home made gift ideas are Pinterest, and Etsy.

This Mother’s day gift basket idea I found on Pinterest. This is very basic and easy to make. Slip a ribbon on a basket and fill it with your Mom’s favorite things. You could put a flowering plant in there, her favorite beverage, some pictures taken she might not have seen before, a nice pair of socks and of course some chocolate. Handmade coupons for chores and some quite time are also fabulous presents! These are basic ideas that do not cost much but she is sure to appreciate. Mom’s love thoughtfulness, it doesn’t really matter what the gift is if there was thought put into it.

Love At First Swing Hammock

Yep you read that right, Love at First Swing Hammock will have you falling in love the minute you take your first seat. Hammocks are a must have, we have two at our house and the weather is finally cooperating that we can bring them out and sit in them. Most warm sunny days here at our place you can see a child or my husband or I sitting in one of the hammocks. We love to sit in them and watch the kids play out side in the pool, on the trampoline, on the swing set or even as they play a game of basketball or tag.

I wish I had a picture of the one that I bought for my husband two years ago for his birthday. It was the greatest thing that I could have every bought him. Finding something for him is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack, virtually impossible. He never has any ideas on what he wants, because if he wants or needs something he just gets it himself. With that being said I would highly recommend getting one of these Love at First Swing Hammocks for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or that coming Birthday!!

The story behind the Love at First Swing Hammock,

When Joe Demin first experienced one of these hammocks in Thailand, it was “love at first swing.” 100% hand-woven from 3.2 miles of soft, vibrant, colorfast and weather-resistant cord, a process that can take a week to complete but that offers a contoured comfort unmatched by traditional cloth hammocks. This queen-sized model is perfect for two people to curl up and enjoy relaxing together.

Demin tracked down the source of these woven wonders–a small village of the endangered Mlabri people in northern Thailand. The Mlabri were nearly wiped out in the mid 20th century, when the teak forests that were their home were cut down for decorative wood. But, after their population dropped as low as 300, they have begun a slow resurgence. They have turned their traditional weaving skills toward making these inviting hammocks as a way of bringing sustainable income into their community. So as you snooze away a warm afternoon in your bright, woven nest, you can know that its makers are resting more easily as well.

Because of its woven nature, the Love at First Swing Hammock should not be used while wearing clothing with exposed buttons or zippers, or jewelry with snaggable edges. But when proper attire is worn, the hammock will last you through many summers to come. Handmade in Thailand.

Love Chakra Stone Chimes

There is so soothing about a wind chime, maybe its sweet soft melody it makes when the wind moves it back and fourth. In the mornings I love to sit out on our deck and enjoy a cup of coffee and listen to nature, and my bamboo wind chime. When I had my first child, I hung a wind chime in her front of her window. In the summer time with the window cracked, I could lay my daughter down for a nap and she would be soothed to sleep by the sweet melody of her wind chime.

In the mornings when she woke she would sit up in her crib and watch the wind chime, sometimes it was not even moving but it was bright and colorful and she loved it. Wind chimes are my favorite gift to give in the summer time, you can hang them on your deck, patio, in your garden or from a tree. Maybe you don’t have any space outdoors, no worries they work great hanging indoors as well.  This Love Chakra Stone Chime is beautiful and will make a great birthday gift!!
