Back in May I reviewed a wonderful set of Mother’s Day gift items from Compendium and recently I had the opportunity to review an equally wonderful set of Father’s Day gifts.  Click here to find a store near you that sells Compendium products.  I recently found some Compendium products at my local Target.  They were mixed in the stationary aisles.  I’m sure the selection varies from store to store, but do look if you have a Target nearby or order online and save 20% now until Father’s Day, June 19th.  Use code lovedad11 during step 2 of the checkout process;  you will be able to verify the code has been properly entered during step 4.

Dad My Hero by Dan Zadra & Kobi Yamada

Through good times and bad, Dad was there for you to lift you to new heights, and to catch you when you fell. The Dad My Hero book is a wonderful way to tell him how you feel. Sentimental and inspiring, the Dad My Hero book features an amazing collection of quotations about fatherhood. It’s a timeless and touching tribute to a true hero.

  • Hardcover with dust jacket
  • 9 ¼” wide x 6 ¼” high
  • 64 pages
  • $12.95

    My thoughts?

    This book is full of quotes relating to the importance of fathers.  Each quote is tied with two simple words on the corresponding page.  My _______.  My Advisor.  My Drive.  My Role Model.   This book would make a lovely gift with an inscription written into the front cover for your own father.  Or perhaps for your husband or father-to-be  as an inspiration to be the best father he can be.

    This is a cute little notebook.  This will fit perfectly in my husband’s man bag.  Yes, he has one and he loves it.  The hard cover will protect the pages from bending and breaking.  I love the title and writing on the front cover.  Hmm…Ideas, Hunches, Insights.  This is such a guy thing.  My husband is constantly writing down little ideas.    This notebook is would also be a great gift for a recent graduate.

    My thoughts?

    Compendium makes a variety of different travel photo frames.  Click here to check them out.   This gift obviously won’t work for every father.  This gift is geared for the father who travels.  The travel frame has no glass and simply folds like a book so your guy can take pictures of the important people in his life with him wherever he goes.   The frame could easily be slipped into the smallest of travel bags.

  • 5 ¼” wide x 7” high
  • 160 pages

    My thoughts?

    I love the paper tag on the outside of the book (it  is removable). This book is a blank line free journal for the guy in your life.  Each right handed page includes an inspirational quote.  If your father or guy likes to write stories, take notes, or perhaps even write poetry this would be a great place to keep those thoughts.

    My thoughts?

    I love travel diaries and notebooks.    Perhaps it is because I love to travel.  If your father or guy loves to travel too, this book is a great way to inspire him in his adventures.  Each page includes either a travel or exploration quote.  This book is also unlined and can also be used for drawings if he prefers to draw instead of write.   This book would also be a great gift for a recent graduate.
