Want to take the guesswork out of shopping for loved ones? Ask them what they want.
Recently, I read about the idea of a gifting jar—a jar filled with pieces of paper labeled with a need or want for a gift idea, along with the requestor’s name. The giver can select a paper or two and fulfill the wish list item while still keeping the surprise element.
We just started implementing this idea in our house, and I’m sharing a few of the wish list items labeled “Joe” and marked “For Father’s Day” with you below.
A bag that knows how much details matter.
The go-anywhere-feel-great shorts. The summer staple of Joe’s wardrobe (he’s in 365 pants when it’s cold outside).
For showing off on the grill.
For the budding fishing hobbiest.
For the cyclist dreaming up future trips.
A cool twist on a classic silhouette.
Pairs well with a crisp morning, hot coffee, and the Sunday paper.
For cocktails with a rotating view.
For the body and mind.
A tool that’s always nice to have on hand for small tasks around the house (and outdoors).
