Download This App: Oyster

As a kid, I always loved reading. Going to the library was a treat, and the day I got my very own library card was a right of passage. I remember participating in the summer reading programs, and the little log book my mom gave me to keep track of when my books were due.

While they don't cause as great a reaction (at least not for me) as their walnut cousin, it's still not really worth getting an itchy throat just to enjoy a sauce, albeit a delicious one.

Gifts for Dad with East Dane

When East Dane reached out to me about putting together a gift guide for Father's Day, I clicked through to their site and my initial thoughts were:

"Wow, Eric would love this stuff." and "But Eric's not a Dad."

The thing is, though East Dane probably caters more to millennials (think your baby daddy/doggy daddy) rather than the father's of millennials, I found a bunch of fun things that I could see my dad or stepdad truly loving.
