Big Daddy Dirty Dog Soap
Socks for dad? No. Soap! Yes. Soap. We love Big Daddy’s Dirty Dog Soap. Lauren Janis created this soap as a great smelling way to protect your dogs from fleas, but we find it makes great gardening soap, kitchen soap and just all-around soap. Dad can use it to wash the dog, and dad can use it on himself. It’s full of eucalyptus, citronella, lavender, peppermint, lemongrass, and tea tree oils. It lathers perfectly, smells delicious and all those oils make it just as safe on Dad’s skin as it is on his beloved pet. We think you need a bar at every sink and bathtub.
$7.50 per 4.5-ounce bar. Available at the Saturday morning Marietta Square Farmers Market or online at bigdaddybiscuits.com/.
Nachtmann Punk Tumbler Collection
Is dad ready to spruce up his glassware collection? “Punk” is not a fashion statement we usually make, but we think these studded cocktail glasses from Nachtmann are more elegant than trendy. The “studs” decorating the outside of these heavy crystal tumblers will make these glasses stand out from dad’s other barware, and they also perform the very important of function of making the glasses easy to hold onto. The tumblers come in five colors: clear, black, ruby, copper and gun metal. The collection also includes decanters and two other glass shapes - cocktail (a sort of short-stemmed martini glass) and longddrink (like a Collins glass). Nachtmann was founded in Bavaria in 1834 and is now part of Riedel Crystal. The Punk collection is part of their NEXTGEN project featuring the work of young designers. So dad gets beautiful crystal and you support the work of the next generation of designers.
$49 for set of four clear tumblers. Clear tumblers available at Bloomingdale’s at Lenox Square. Clear tumblers in four-pack and other colors available for $29.90 per tumbler at riedel.com/en-us/shop?filter_brand=NACHTMANN&filter_collection=/punk/. For more information: nachtmann.com/en/home/.
