ANYONE CAN BE A ‘FATHER’, BUT IT TAKES SOMEONE SPECIAL TO BE A DAD.
…WE THOUGHT YOU’D LIKE TO WRITE THE BOOK ON THE PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY GIFT!
AND THIS FATHER’S DAY, LET IGNITION HELP HONOUR THAT SPECIAL DAD IN YOUR LIFE.
WE SPEND 80% OF OUR DAY AT WORK, WHICH MAKES HAVING A WORK DAD A THING!
Let’s face it, our working lives constitute a whoppingly large part of our day, and while we are at work, we are focussing on career goal, deadlines, making sure we get in new business, taking care of existing clients, balancing accounts – the ‘To Do’ list becomes rather formidable. Ever wondered where the day went to when you were super busy?
Sure, it might seem super-obvious, but if we are this busy at work, we certainly won’t have the chance to spend as much time as we would like with our loved ones, back at home. Next best thing? Celebrating Father’s day in the workplace!
To fulfil this emotional gap, often, we seek to find these fatherly connections at work, with people who may share similar personality traits with our own fathers. We all know the type… dads, grandfathers, stepdads and of course, work dads are often trustworthy reliable, kind, supportive and look out for the best interest of others.
These are also the qualities of great colleagues, suppliers, clients, employees, managers, leaders, and business owners. Mentorship by older men, made readily available to both younger men and women colleagues often precipitate this closeness.
If you’ve benefited from their advice, career or otherwise, if they’ve been a shoulder to cry on, or helped you cope with a recent heartbreak, wouldn’t it be great to lavish a bit of love and to spoil them on Father’s Day, at the office, with Ignition’s range of corporate gifts for Father’s Day? If you sincerely have the heart for them, then we have the perfect corporate gift for men, just for you!
SO, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DAD LIKES?
The perfect spoil starts with the right kind of intelligence. A close personal relationship with someone will often provide the basis for sharing what either of you like, don’t like, your aspirations, your dreams, your goals and will reveal the type of personality traits that make you both unique.
This is of particular importance, especially when it comes time to choosing a truly special gift, you’ll have a solid idea of exactly what will work, and what won’t. Personalising a gift based on the recipient’s taste, preferences, wants and needs takes gifting to a whole new level.
The sheer emotional payoff in knowing that you have taken the time to choose from a range of branded gifts for men – and to do so wisely, is something money can’t quite buy, but the right gift comes darned close!
To make it easier to choose that perfect gift, we’ve provided a broad ‘Dad category’, so have a look, find one that best matches your dad, and let us help you choose the perfect gift!
THE SPORTY DAD
He’s the dad with a competitive edge, that gets fired up when his favourite team wins. He appreciates the competitive edge that gives him a sporting advantage, and he values teamwork and playing his role in making sure that those who are in his care are in it for the win.
Gift him the ultimate sports bag, a set of fantastic, personalised golf clubs (or a session with a driving coach to get his game on par), drinkware to keep him hydrated or anything sporty that you can find.
