Some of the reasons fathers are so important…
Dads inspire us.
They give us confidence.
They illustrate the right way to treat a lady.
Fathers promote independence.
They teach us how to dress (or not dress).
They support us.
They’ve help us avoid mistakes, or allowed us to make them and learn.
And, of course, they’ve showed many of us how to be great fathers ourselves.
For the rest of June, we’ll be hosting a few contests on our social networks to encourage the conversation about what makes dads so great.
We’re excited to see so much of our community of gentlemen already sharing their insights for our first contest: Tell us what gentlemanly trait every father needs. Some of our favorite answers so far:
My husband and I have 2 daughters. 1 is 7 the other is 3. If I am ever out for an evening, I come hoe to him having tea parties, giving our girls spa night (complete with toe separators for pedicures) or making forts or playing with Lego. A father needs to be fun. – Instagram user queendeeappleby
Every father should be a gentleman; chivalrous, respectful, humility, patience, perseverance, and never demeaning. – Instagram user Tanner_Stewy
Every father needs integrity. Children learn from their parents through words and actions. Doing the right thing, even when difficult, is one of the best lessons one can teach. – Instagram user chistiansilva_
Every father should possess a trait to know when their kids need help. So many fathers today play a back seat roll to parenting. Being proactive to take the lead and no waiting until their help is needed. – Facebook user Vishal Patel
To the gentlemen out there who have proudly taken on the role as father––our hat is off to you. We know the job isn’t always an easy one, but the rewards are endless. Take the time June 21 (and every day) to tell your father or father figure how much he means to you!
Want to give a unique gift this Father’s Day? Orders before June 8 will arrive in time for the celebrations. Ordering after June 8? Don’t fret. We’ll also send you a special edition card letting your gift recipient know his Gentleman’s Box is on its way!
