Natural Father's Day Gift Ideas!

A healthy dad is a hydrated dad. So…here is the way for your dad to keep on drinking his water –even while on the go. SOMA water bottles are made from high quality, shatter-resistant BPA free glass. Each bottle comes with a leak-proof bamboo cap and an easy grip protective sleeve, 90% of which is made from plastic bottles found in the ocean. Available in a variety of colors including white, olive, or mint. For every Soma filter purchased, a donation is made to water projects to support sustainable community-owned water projects in developing countries.



This easy to use, discrete car diffuser by Saje uses essential oils to give your car a light, uplifting scent. Simply add 10-15 drops of his favorite diffuser blend onto a refill pad and insert into the diffuser. Plug into car lighter outlet and unplug when car is not running.



Does your dad love to BBQ? If so, this set will certainly put a smile on his face. This 3-piece grilling tool set comes with all the essentials – a grill glove to keep dad’s hands protected while grilling, a chef’s spatula, grill tongs and a grill fork. Each piece is constructed with durable stainless steel and comfortable heat resistant rubberized grips. This set will get lots of use out of this summer!



Shhhh….this is what I am buying my hubby this Father’s Day. This durable messenger bag has a 13” laptop compartment and comes with adjustable shoulder straps, a front flap pocket with snap and Velcro closure and an interior smart phone pocket. Each bag is made with sustainable woven fabric made of 100% recycles bottles and the nylon lining is made with 100% recycled materials. Also comes in olive and chili. The perfect bag for dad for work, travel or weekend getaways.



Is your dad a coffee lover? If so –this gift is a slam-dunk. Kicking horse coffee uses only the finest, organically grown Arabica beans from certified Fair Trade sources. Make the perfect coffee set for your dad this father’s day with a package of Kicking Horse coffee and a Bodum French press. This classic French press by bodum is a staple for any coffee lover and brew’s a full-body and aromatic coffee every time. The bodum is designed with glass and stainless steel with a mesh filter to reduce sediment.


The bodum is available at www.chapters.indigo.ca 


Everyone needs a coach - myself included. I have often hesitated sharing my husband's company in my newsletter, but have decided that this Father's Day - it is the perfect fit. I can honestly say, in addition to always helping me strategize to the next level, I have witnessed Randy help so many of his personal and executive clients reach their goals in all their areas - personal, health, professional and financial. So...if you are looking to buy your dad or hubby a unique gift this Father’s Day - I highly recommend Tayormade Leadership programs.

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Plank salmon and asparagus


  • 1 (3 pound) whole filet of salmon, skin on, scored (up to but not through the skin)
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, washed with ends cut off


  • Soak an untreated cedar plank (or planks) large enough to hold a side of salmon (5 to 7 inches wide and 16 to 20 inches long) in water, weighting it with something heavy so it stays submerged 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  • When ready to grill, either build a charcoal fire in half the grill or turn grill burners on high for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix oil, garlic, dill, salt, pepper and lemon zest; rub over salmon and into scored areas to coat.
  • Place soaked cedar on hot grill grate, close lid, and watch until wood starts to smoke, about 5 minutes. Transfer salmon to hot plank, move salmon off direct charcoal heat or turn burners to low, and cook covered until salmon is just opaque throughout, about 25 minutes or longer, depending on thickness and grill temperature. Let sit 5 minutes; serve with lemon wedges.
  • While salmon is cooking, throw asparagus on the grill until cooked.
