Gifts That Go Beyond the Father’s Day Necktie

For a long time, I have felt a little sorry for all of the dads out there when it came to the receiving of gifts…especially when Father’s Day rolled around. While a tie or “Worlds Greatest Dad” mug are nice gifts to receive, getting them year after year…after year, might not rank very high on the list of favorite gifts. This year, go beyond the standard Father’s Day necktie and give your dad a gift he will cherish for many years to come…and might even pass down to you or your children one day!

Derby Day Ready…

Kentucky Derby HeaderI can just hear the bugle as the jockeys ride their horses into the gate. Excitement reaches a crescendo as the gates open and the fastest two minutes in sports is underway. There is a sense of refined pageantry evident in the Run For the Roses. I admire how the Derby is steeped in history and tradition, and I like to think we have that in common. In honor of the 144th Kentucky Derby, I’ve pulled together a few items for Derby Day or any day.

“If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?” – Milton Berle


My Mother married at a very young age and became an “instant” Mother. I came in the “package” with my Dad, since my birth mother died ten days after I was born. Instant motherhood is a lot more complicated than instant oatmeal or instant coffee. Although she was young and seemingly unprepared to be a Mother, she learned the ropes quickly and performed wonderfully well; especially considering that I had been spoiled beyond measure by my grandmother for 2 1/2 years.

We lost my Mother on March 24, 2011. The loss was profound, but I am eternally grateful for the love she showed me and the lessons she taught me. Those lessons weave in and out of my memory and are forever a part of who I am.

I was fortunate enough to share many “Mother’s Days” with my mom, and over the years, I learned some important lessons in making your mom feel special and appreciated.

Here’s a few Mother’s Day tips from me so you don’t have to learn from experience like I did.

  1. Visit or call your Mother

I’m not a mom but trust me I know what mothers want. She wants to both talk to you and see you. If you can’t do both at least try one.

  1. Thank all the Moms in your life

Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, friends and guardians all appreciate a kind word around Mother’s Day.

  1. Find out what your mother wants and get it for her.

Remember this is the lady that fed, clothed, protected and sheltered you. Get her something she wants.

If she has a leather item on her list, I can give you some advice on this gift as well.

Introducing…The Traveler

The Traveler – Leather Tumbler Sleeve

Patent Pending

(for Yeti Rambler® 20 oz. and 30 oz.)

The Traveler-Leather Tumbler Sleeve header

“Being a leather aficionado, I’m partial to the look and feel of our new sleeve. Since I carry my Yeti Rambler® everywhere I go, I designed the handy sleeve not only for aesthetics but with a carry strap for no-spill convenience. When I’m heading out in the morning, I’m usually on the phone while trying to juggle my beverage tumbler, leather briefcase, keys, umbrella, product samples, etc. Now, I can finally make it to my destination without spilling my drink all over everything.  You can literally carry your tumbler with one finger, keeping it upright.

“I have personally road-tested our leather tumbler sleeve for almost a year as have many members of the Col. Littleton team. We have pronounced it good to go and can assure, by personal experience, that you’ll get noticed when you carry it. There’s nothing like it out there.”

Great for everyday living . . . carry it to the office, meetings, beach, golf course, sporting events, concerts, road trips . . . just hook it over your finger and charge ahead. Comes in two sizes. May be personalized with three block initials. Handcrafted in our Workshop – Lynnville, TN USA.

(Stainless steel cup not included with purchase.)
Also fits Ozark Trail® 20 and 30 oz. Tumblers.

The Colonel on Belts

“Great leather belts aren’t made by accident. I use the highest quality materials and make them right here in the USA.”

“The biggest belt/buckle question that ever came to mind years ago before I was The Colonel and in the leather goods business was…’Is it buckle or buckel?’ My wife always said, ‘Of course, it’s buckle’…to which I would invariably reply ‘Then why is it nickel instead of nickle?’ She would mumble something about long vowel vs. short vowel sounds, but I was already thinking ‘Gotcha.’ Guess I will never completely understand the English language or why my wife knows stuff like that.”

“However, I do know about belts. Many years ago I designed and received a patent on my belts with their unique adjusting feature. Our collection features belts made by the leathersmiths in our workshop in Lynnville, TN of fine quality materials such as Italian Bridle Leather, American Buffalo and American Alligator. I design them all with a casual attitude and a nod to the military and sportsman’s tradition to be worn with khakis and jeans.”

“Kudos to The Art Of Manliness for the exceptional blog on belts. The blogger also mentions the wearing of suspenders. It just so happens that I make suspenders, too. He is correct in saying that most people consider it a faux pas of the nth degree to wear a belt and suspenders at the same time. But, occasionally I just take my cue from John Wayne in Stagecoach and Tom Selleck in Quigley Down Under (two of my favorites) and do it anyway…just because I want to.” – Colonel Littleton
