Winner of the Father's Day giveaway

Congratulations to A Ballantyne. The koolaman team decided this entry was one of the most interesting. We're sending a pair of William cufflinks and a GUS cuff her way!

Thanks to everyone who participated, we had a huge response. Don't worry if you didn't win this time. There will be more giveaways coming up in the next few months.

Look out for the Spring Giveaway next month!

Have a wonderful Father's Day this weekend!

When I saw your new “hide” collection
Upon opening my email last Friday,
I got so excited and thought to myself
“I’m going to choose an awesome gift for him this Father’s Day!!”

Because year upon year it’s a struggle,
To find the perfect gift to mark special days,
And I would dearly love for my husband to open his gift
And be totally, utterly amazed!!

Just as others have mentioned about their men,
My husband works hard providing for his wife and son;
Leaving early and arriving home late,
Never ceasing until the work’s done.

And despite being sleep deprived,
He always makes time for the important things:
That special time with our son spent reading stories,
Taking walks, playing soccer, and riding the swings.

We are truly lucky if we find our true love,
And must treasure them… through thick and thin!
A beautiful gift that lasts a lifetime,
Is the perfect way to convey those feelings within.

The Gus is casual, yet elegantly refined,
Hence it would suit my husband to a ‘t’;
And as a bonus it would serve as a subtle hint,
Of how dearly I would love an Audrey :).
