It's Dad's Day: Sunday June 19 #LoveHallmarkCA

Father's Day is on the horizon.  Do you have any plans to celebrate Dad, yet? 

We are having a very special weekend away with the two younger kids.  A few months ago I won a little giveaway which gave us a night's accommodation and a voucher for supper.  It just so happens that this weekend is also our wedding anniversary, in addition to Father's Day.  As you can see we are wrapping a bunch of celebrations all in one weekend.

I will be taking along a few thoughtful gifts for the kids to give to Dad, thanks to Hallmark Canada.

Dad, in our family is King of the Grill - these gifts are perfect for him!

Assorted Barbeque Gear

Hallmark has an excellent, masculine line of barbeque accessories, perfect for gift giving this Father's Day.   Put these items together and you have an awesome Father's Day gift for the grilling enthusiast.

(Outdoor Chef Apron $19.95, Outdoor Chef Grill Mitt $12.95 &
Best Chef BBQ Grill Towel $8.95)

Beer Flight (four glasses)

If your Dad enjoys a good brewski every now and again, then this is a perfectly suited gift!

What Dad wouldn't enjoy either (or both) of these thoughtful little gifts?

Father Knows Best: Go Ahead and Ask Him #GoAskDad #Gillette

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.


It's time to celebrate those special guys in our lives.  Fathers. Grandfathers. Uncles. Sons.

In our home, my husband and my children's Dad is our go-to source for all questions answered.  I looked up to my own Dad and Grandfather as the keeper of all answers, and that has carried on in our own family.    While, I love that we have the world at our fingertips, I think it is also important to talk to those around us, and learn from their experiences. 

Go Ask Dad this Father's Day.   In my own home, I can see the (growing) trend of isolating ourselves with technology.  Don't forget to put those phones and tablets down and just chat, or how about asking Dad some advice this Father's Day! 

My guess is Dad will appreciate a thoughtful little gift this Father's Day, yet, he will appreciate even more having a conversation with his favourite people.

Try it yourself.  In my own life, I try to still think of my Dad whenever I have a question.  As he ages, I appreciate it more and more that he is still with us and able to answer a question or two.   Why not try it yourself and challenge yourself this June by a go ask Dad experiment.  

The Gillette Shave Club

Here's a great Father's Day gift giving suggeston: 

This Father’s Day helping dad look his best doesn’t have to break the bank. Forget ties, socks and underwear, get dad a gift he’ll actually use and his face will love. The new Gillette Fusion ProShield razor has lubrication before and after the blades so his skin will be smoother and shielded from skin irritation and at only $14.99 the Gillette Fusion ProShield won’t irritate your bank account either. To take your gifting game to the next level, why not get dad a subscription to www.GilletteShaveClub.ca so he never has to worry about going out to buy blades again.

Whoever that special guy is in your life, be sure to show them the love on June 18, 2016.

New Opportunity from P&G: brandPACK is Now Live! #PGMom

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.


How many times have you said that you wish you could try out a product, before committing to it?  I know I have many times, in the past.  The truth is marketing can motivate us to buy products, and then we realize we have something that just isn't for us.  It happens everyday!

Being a #PGMom, over the years I tried so many really great products.  Products which I use in my home time and time again.  Products which are tried and true.  Yet, I  appreciate the fact that sometimes I've had the opportunity to test out a product through the program before the commitment of purchase.

P&G has extended that opportunity to all their past, present and future fans and customers by rolling out a brand new program called brandPACK.

It's super easy to order and in no time you'll be trying out some great products at a minimal cost to you.  Then, when you realize that you just can't live without a certain item, you have the confidence to purchase it without hesitation.

We have an exciting offer for Canadian families: P&G has launched a NEW brandPACK!
For a low price, you can
 try products from your favourite P&G brands such as Pampers, Tide and Swiffer. All you have to do is register at pgeveryday.ca, select a bundle and we'll send you new goodies to try at home!  Just pay shipping and taxes, starting at only $4.99.

Limited Quantities
