    QUICK TIPS WHEN PLANNING A WEDDING DURING COVID

    bride

    There are so many factors which influence us during the wedding planning stages. Planning a wedding during COVID can be stressful and confusing at best. Conflicting information through the media can make it difficult to move forward with a solid plan.

    Here are a quick few tips:

    • Stay informed and follow guidelines. Your first point of call is to get factual and up to date information from your national and state government websites.

    • Embrace the downtime. It’s a silver lining but will give you time to focus on the intricate details of your event while spending time researching and reflecting what you and your partner really want from the day. Chat to vendors and see what’s on offer and how they can cater for your event during a pandemic.

    • Think local. Support local businesses and industry where you can. Your community wil

    He looks out for you and the family all year, so Father’s Day is the perfect day to spoil him and say ‘thanks!’ However, a year goes by really quickly and all of a sudden, it’s here again, we are busily trying to arrange a special gift and find him something that he doesn’t already own.

    The beauty with shopping online is that it can be done from anywhere at any time and with the current COVID pandemic, it’s a safe option from the comfort of your couch.

    Personalised gifts are more popular than ever for that fact that they are so much more than just a pair of socks or case of beer. Thought, creativity and love go into each and every gift and there is literally something for every type of dad and of course, something to suit every budget.

    SPOTLIGHT ON MEN-TAL HEALTH: 5 AUSSIE CHARITIES THAT SUPPORT MEN'S HEALTH

    The events of the past few months have taught us many things and one truth that’s been thrust into the spotlight is the health of our Aussies. Despite the fact that our health and hospital system is pretty solid, it’s important to highlight the importance of getting the right access to support services and take care of not just out own well-being but that of those we love.

    With this in mind, we have selected 5 Australian charities and organisations that are helping to get out nation and its men in a healthy headspace.

    Lampoon Dad

    Lampoon Dad

    You turn to your Dad for advice because you figure that they’ve been there before and don’t that. Just because they are older (and assumedly wiser) doesn’t always mean they are right.

    They often pass along ridiculous old wives’ tales or confusing advice in the hopes that it will steer us in the right direction.

    In among some of the worst or cheesy advice are gems of wisdom, guidance and love from our Fathers.

    Let’s take a look at some of the best and worst advice as given by Dads. If life has taught us anything, it’s that we have to take the good with the bad, right.

    We all know that dads can be pretty tough to buys for and let’s be honest, there are only so many pairs of socks and underwear that we can surprise him with.

    We recognise that every dad is unique in their own right and that’s what makes them so special. It’s time to step up your gift-giving game this year and really ‘wow’ dad with your thoughtful gifting skills.

    We have put together a couple of ideas (just in case you’re stuck). Oh, and just a little reminder to our customers to pop your orders in sooner rather than later to ensure your orders have plenty of time to arrive. We would hate for dad to miss out on his gift due to postal delays.

    Father’s on Fatherhood

    dad helping son

    It may seem like yesterday that you graduated high school and now you are going through the life-changing journey of Fatherhood. The young, selfish and immature views of the world disappeared when your daughter or son arrived and suddenly you were their protectors.

    While fatherhood isn’t a walk in the park (more like Jurassic Park), it’s also an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only are we teaching and guiding our children through life, at the same time they are teaching us to much about ourselves.

    In reality, no dad has it ‘figured out’ and chances are he’s just winging it along the way. There’s one thing we will always love (and roll our eyes at) and that is their dad jokes and funny quirks reminiscent of those daggy TV dads with the laugh-out-loud punchline.

    5 TIPS ON HOW TO BE A SAVVY SHOPPER

    couple online shopping

    Although having the uncanny talent of finding a bargain is a top trait of a Savvy Shopper, in essence it is about making the most out of your hard-earned dollars. Part of being a savvy shopper is knowing when and where to buy.

    Life is busy and who has time these days to be wandering around the shops only to come home with nothing. Using the convenience of online shopping, you can compare products and find a sale.

    1. Remember that supporting local and Australian made businesses is at the forefront of many people’s minds and although the price may not be the lowest, you may find that shipping is cheaper, delivery is faster and the quality is far superior.
    2. Shopping out of season can snag you a bargain and taking advantage of those mid-year or end of year sales events. These major events are a great time to stock up on birthday a

    2020 is no normal year. The global pandemic and the social-distancing policies that have been put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 have effectively ruled out large gatherings.

    HIP HIP HOORAY! CUSTOM GIFTS TO MAKE THEIR DAY

    Throughout much of human history, people didn’t celebrate their birthdays. Many people didn’t even know when their birthday was.

    Historically, only emperors and saints — you know, the big ones — celebrated birthdays and it’s only in the 1800s that wealthier parents started celebrating their children’s birthdays which is now a trend that trickled down to the masses.

    In the 1950’s your standard child’s birthday affair was an intimate gathering, some cake, some ice cream and not much emphasis on gifts. Flash forward to the 1980’s where birthday parties underwent a glow-up (and we all love a glow-up!)

    Parents were getting savvier hosting parties at arcades, roller rinks and bowling alleys.

    Birthdays at present have also changed dramatically. With an abundance of inspiration on social media and that constant need to ‘keep up with the trends’ and Sally down the street with her party planning perfection and perfectly curated Instagram posts, are we forgetting wha
