Last Minute Father’s Day Gift – Head to Ikea
By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor
Although all of the father's in my life (including my husband) are deserving of a special day, I always find it a bit of a challenge of finding that perfect gift. Let alone the fact that it is probably celebrated at the worse time of the year, with all the end of the year school activities. So I cheated a bit and went to IKEA to see what I could find for the father of my children.
|SPRAKA – I love this pepper mill. I have been looking at one of these for my husband at a specialty kitchen store but all were over $200. This one is only $19.99! It stands over one foot tall and comes in either natural wood or black. I can see my husband spicing up our guests steaks just like the professionals do.|
|SLIPAD – A perfect set of knives for the patio and BBQ area. The plastic knife holder can withstand the wet weather and the colorful knife handles makes it a fun accent to the outdoor kitchen area. $19.99.|
|FLORT – a remote control pocket that fits over the arm of a chair or couch. It comes in red or black. Perfect for the little ones to buy with their allowance money. $4.99.|
|FLORT shoulder Bag– This could me another perfect gift from the child to give to his dad. A messenger bag that can hold a small computer – definitely an iPad – that comes in either black or red. $9.99.|
|BRADA– This portable laptop support is perfect for the man who likes to be on his computer while sitting on the couch or lying in bed. $14.99.|
|IKEA PS – This lamp is very cool. It is designed like a bucket that can be filled with unlimited possibilities. Think of wine corks, a collection of coasters or sports memorabilia. My husband has a collection of wine bottle openers from various vineyards and hotels we have visited throughout the years. Now he will have a place to display them. $39.99. .|
|EKTORP– Splurge a little and get him a beautiful leather chair. An incredibly comfy deal at this price. $449.00. .|
|IKEA STOCKHOLM– Add some fun to his man cave with this ottoman. $279.00. .|
Happy Father's Day!
