Pampering Your Man on Father’s Day

Ever notice that mothers are often praised for their love and dedication, while dads are trailing somewhere not too far behind, usually pushing the cart or carrying the shopping bags. They're the ones who pick up the pieces when everything falls apart. With their tools, they fix the roof, mow the lawn and put together the flat-pack IKEA furniture. Is there anything a dad can't do?

Economic hard times and out-of-work fathers mean buying his favorite “big ticket” toy is out of the question this Father’s Day for many families, as the extra cash is needed to run the household. Of course there are other ways of celebrating fatherhood and one very important way is indulging him with escapism. According to Dr. Judith Orloff, author of Emotional Freedom, when life is more stressful, we need an escape even more because it is a healthy and positive coping mechanism that helps us find an oasis of calm.

Below are a few suggestions for mom to create the perfect oasis of calm for dad this Father’s Day and all are under $50.00!

Soothe Your Senses Day Spa for Men and Woman,, located in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood, offers an array of treatments to lovingly pamper an overly stressed dad. The Vichy shower and the aromatherapy steam room are two treatments I highly recommend. However, the devoted staff will be happy to suggest other treatments to revive dad’s spirit.

The Colors of Wine,, Atlanta’s premier boutique wine shop, has an outstanding selection of wine and accessories. Located in charming Vinings, this boutique wine shop has everything from aromatic Albarinos to zesty Zinfandels, allowing mom to set the mood for romance on Father’s Day.

Soulstice Natural Products,, is a New Orleans favorite. Their all natural products are the ultimate accoutrement for bringing dad’s sexy back. Mood enhancing aromatherapy candles and bath salts with scents like Leather, Voo Doo and Love Potion #9 will create such a state of deep relaxation in his body, dad will be wishing everyday were Father’s Day!

Whatever you do this Father’s Day, the most important thing to remember is…anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a daddy!
