Willow Tree Figurines for Father’s Day – June 19, 2011!

Is your Dad one of the many that already has everything he needs? Have you already bought him as many car cleaning kits, tool sets, and grill covers as any one man could possibly need in 10 lifetimes? You are not alone. Dads can be quite tricky to shop for as many of them have very few things wants and needs, and those things they do want and need they buy themselves! Yes, unless we’re among the lucky few in the market to buy our fathers restored classic cars or their own cabins, most of us are left scratching our heads wondering what to get Dad for Father’s Day.
What will show him how much love and appreciation you have for all he’s done and all he is? What will bring the perfect amount of sentiment without being too mushy? What won’t end up hidden at the bottom of a drawer, back of a closet, or corner of the garage? Willow Tree Figurines, of course!
We never cease to be amazed by how beautiful, simple, and full of emotion Willow Tree pieces really are. They can capture the essence of a person or a relationship like none other we’ve seen, and they manage to do this while maintaining the quiet, understated look and feel that is so uniquely Willow Tree. This powerful subtlety makes them a wonderful gift choice for both men and women, with some of the most popular figurines being those that depict the one-of-a-kind relationships that parents and children share. We’re confident you’ll find a Willow Tree figurine in our collection that’s perfect for Dad to display in his office or at home!

Board Games Bring Fun and Laughter Along Every Time!

Likewise GameSay Anything GameBananagrams

While I have many friends that aren’t what would be considered ‘board game people’, I am also lucky enough to have a few friends that most definitely are! I have been a board game fan for as long as I can remember, and my appreciation for board games has never wavered.

During my college years there was a local late night restaurant my friends and I would frequent. We became familiar enough with the servers and managers that one night when it was just 2 of us, we felt comfortable enough to bring along a travel chess set. Sipping cups of coffee well into the early morning, we must have played 10 times that night! And that travel chess set was just the beginning. Once we realized we could get our ‘game fix’ while also enjoying our favorite restaurant’s coffee and fries, we were soon bringing along a board game almost every time. The servers would even sit in sometimes to join in the fun when they had a few minutes to rest. Sure, it was a bit of a strange thing to bring to a restaurant, and we wouldn’t have if it wasn’t somewhere we were regulars. But strangeness aside, and the occasional double-take from other restaurant-goers, we had a super fun night every time!

You might not have a favorite local late night restaurant that you would feel comfortable bringing a chess set or board game to, but there are many other places they can be enjoyed. Why not keep the compact and creative Bananagrams in your car for impromptu game opportunities anywhere from a table in the park to a lazy afternoon at a friend’s house? Or perhaps you’d prefer something that will guarantee some laugh-out-loud moments, such as the always-hilarious Say Anything. Whichever games you choose, you’re sure to quickly remember (if you ever forgot!) just how much board games can be.

Many of us are looking for more affordable means of entertainment that are relaxing, fun, and quite simply, bring us together. Board games offer all of the above, and can be played again and again! We’re confident you’ll find a game in our selection at CoppinsGifts.com that sounds interesting, and we encourage you to get creative in where you’ll play. Don’t be afraid to pack a picnic lunch, grab a game, and head for the park! A great day can also be an affordable day, and if you get to enjoy some sun and warm weather in the process, all the better. :)

The Pillow Tie is the Perfect Father’s Day Gift!

Landen Pillow TieBowthorpe Pillow TieAdam Madison Pillow Tie

The team at CoppinsGifts.com wouldn’t typically recommend a tie as a Father’s Day gift. In fact, some of the guys here are dads themselves, and when I asked each of them what they would like this year, not a single dad mentioned a tie. But when I asked if they would like a tie that doubled as a pillow, the results were a bit different, with one responding, “Doubles as a pillow? See, that’s an important feature! Yes, I would absolutely want a pillow tie. In fact, I’ll even take an ugly Christmas sweater if it has a pillow built in. And a snack tray, please. A pillow and a snack tray.”

I wasn’t able to find a single pillow tie in our collection that includes a snack tray, but there’s always room for change next season! For now, what we offer is over 20 different prints of pillow ties, which look like regular ties to the unknowing eye, but have a well-concealed inflatable pouch inside. When the time comes to take a little nap or just read your eyes for a few minutes, you can simply inflate the tie like a small balloon and rest easy!

While the pillow tie is without a doubt a humorous gift, it isn’t the type of cheap fare you might expect to find at a novelty store in the mall. We love a good laugh as much as anyone at Coppin’s Hallmark Shop, but we have a commitment to quality, too! Each tie is constructed of a microfiber/silk blend that is wrinkle-resistant to keep you looking polished and professional. The designs are also a standout feature for pillow ties – even the men who admitted they wouldn’t typically want a tie for Father’s Day were impressed by the contemporary, fashionable selection, with favorites including the Landen Pillow Tie, Thomas Pillow Tie and Anne Pillow Tie (my favorite, too!). As for the concealed inflatable pillow? It really is concealed. And well! Each tie is crafted with a tiny pillow pocket that does its job of keeping the pillow undetectable, but if you know for sure that you won’t be catching any Zzz’s and want to play it super safe, you can even remove the pillow altogether. I know what you’re thinking, “They thought of everything!” And…well…you’re right. They did!
