What am I thinking of getting for my dad?
My dad is my hero. He turned 70 years last year but he is probably in better shape than I am. He loves to cross-country ski and spends a lot of time outdoors. That's probably where my own passion for different sports has also picked up.
For him, I was thinking about getting a nice underlayer shirt. We just received these to Weekendbee from our Swedish outdoor brand Klättermusen. The eco-friendly materials are great. Eir Forest Long Sleeve is made of 20 % silk + 80 % merino wool shirt. I think that's a multipurpose shirt that he could use when he goes skiing or just shoveling snow outside. There are also 2 colors to choose from.
The other possibility I was thinking about would be to get the Made in Finland 100 % merino wool long sleeve shirt made by Keli Clothing. This product is a multi-use especially for cold winter conditions which could be very useful. Originally designed for winter cycling it is a multi-use shirt and could be a good match for his sweaty winter sports.
My dad could also use a nice warm fleece made from wool when he is coming out to the cold from sweaty indoor sports. I was thinking Balder Zip Storm Blue one from Klättermusen. The fabric in this sweater is almost 50 % recycled wool so this one could be warm enough for the Finnish winter. Size is easy for him, but we at Weekendbee do have a 60 day returns policy in case it is a wrong size.
One more idea I had was a new beanie from Costo, since he could really use one. Beanie is 100% merino wool so it would be warm enough and it´s an easy choice since they are one-size-fits-all-dads. The only decision is to pick a color!
Well, there were a couple of thoughts for my dad. Hope you can find some from our Weekendbee collection to a dad close to you. Since all of our products are from sustainable sportswear brands you really can't go wrong.
In case you can't decide - we just added a possibility to buy Gift cards to our webstore. They are listed also in the collection.
We deliver to Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland in a couple of days, so you can still make it! :)
Happy father's day to all daddies out there - especially my own!
