Looking up to Dad

father and daughterAs a stay at home mom, I spend the majority of my time with our two daughters. My work is at home and my husband’s work is outside of the home but we are both working hard every day. It’s important to me that we recognize one another for what we both do to keep our family going, and my husband’s big day of recognition is coming up this weekend- Father’s Day! 

Kids are little mirrors and they like to do everything we do, so it’s so important to project wisely. It’s important to me that the example that’s set in our household is one of kindness, love, and generosity. I want my kids to feel like their light shines brightly and know that they are supported. I want them to see an example of love that is so special that they grow up to want families of their own, whatever that may look like for them.

Luckily for my kids, their dad sets a great example and is a guy they can count on. Already, at the age of two, our oldest knows that daddy can fix anything from an owie to a broken toy. They have a really special bond and have things they love to do together. I love that Mike makes things special for her and does things the way she would like to do them.

nautica voyage gift setNautica has gift sets out for Father’s Day right now that embody the “everyday hero.” The scent is called Nautica Voyage and it’s a super masculine scent that I am just loving. We have several Nautica fragrances and they are favorites at our house.

Fresh, cool and aquatic, Nautica Voyage sets sail with top notes of green leaf and crisp apple. An aquatic heart of water lotus and drenched mimosa echoes the very essence of Nautica.  A rich blend of damp moss, musk and refined woody amber anchors the fragrance with a deep and undeniable masculinity.

nautica voyage cologneThis is a really easy scent to wear and an easy one to gift. It falls within the category of super fresh scents for me. Rather than smelling like something specific, it smells like a really clean person, fresh out of the shower. There are some crisp aquatic notes that I just love and even though it’s a new bottle for my husband, I can tell he’s going to be putting it to good use. 

This gift set has a ton of value, $65 for a $128 value. The set includes a 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette, 2.5 oz Aftershave Balm, 2.5 oz Shower Gel, and 1 oz Eau de Toilette. It’s awesome that it comes with so many pieces because you can split them up if you want to. We don’t need two colognes and Mike doesn’t use After Shave, so if we wanted to gift half and keep half, both people would get a great gift out of the box. I’m all for being thrifty! 

nautica voyage gift set after shaveYou can pick this up at select Macy’s stores by the men’s fragrance and it’s probably on a freestanding shelf like the one below! If you can’t find it in store, check online. I have to share that my love for Macy’s runs deep. A few years ago we paid off all of our credit cards but I kept the one for Macy’s because they always do use your card savings. When I was at Macy’s to purchase this cologne gift set, I decided to buy a new comforter for our bed too. I had low expectations because I was not finding anything anywhere but I found the most adorable bedspread for $89 marked down from $200. I am absolutely in love with it.macy's nautica in store picturesMy daughter tried to crawl into the display bed because she loved that it had “sprinkles on it”- what she meant was that she loved the glitter on the accent pillows. So cute. Having two girls is the best, and I hope Mike knows how lucky he is! We are so happy to have him and can’t wait to spoil him for Father’s Day this weekend.

    Nautica has always been a brand I like to get for Mike. I usually get tees from our outlet for him.

    My dad and husband both love this scent! I love it on them also and I’m so picky about what the men in my life wear!

    I was just looking at this set to give to my husband but I need to smell a tester because he is very particular with scents. I’m gonna go back and check it out.
