Father's Day With T.J. Maxx

Father's Day is right around the corner and even though I won't be celebrating Kenny's first Father's Day just yet I still get to celebrate my wonderful dad from afar. The last time I spent the actual holiday with my dad was probably six years ago but I love sending care packages when I can't be there to celebrate in person. This year's Father's Day care package will contain a couple of gifts as well as a card and some ideas for ways to celebrate the day with me in spirit. And I must confess, T.J. Maxx played an essential role in my care package building strategy. If you can't find it at T.J. Maxx, the one-stop shop, you won't find it anywhere! Truly. 

The 2015 Father's Day care package contains one of my dad's summer go-to pieces, the classic polo, and a wallet, something I've been giving him since I was five years old. I guess back then I thought giving him a wallet was brilliant (the mind of a five year old is a strange thing!) and it's been happening ever since. Some movie tickets and a nice note will complete this year's round up. Of course, what makes Father's Day special is not the gifting but the meaning behind it. However, I like to think that my dad gets a brilliant smile on his face when he receives his annual box full of goodies hand picked by his only daughter. The phone call that follows his receiving the box that my mom hides until it's the actual holiday is the most special. We chit chat more than usual - reminiscing stories from when I was little and, lately, talking about how excited he is about becoming a grandfather. It's a beautiful thing to look back at how much our father-daughter relationship has evolved and to look forward to seeing how his grandpa-granddaughter relationship will develop. In the meantime, do what I do for a lot of special occasions and for all your gifting needs, head over to T.J. Maxx to find the most perfect gifts at the most perfect prices! I promise you will have a great time pouring through the many designer pieces at the store although I can't guarantee you won't leave the store with a little something for yourself.
