Let me share a secret: I sort-of hate Father’s Day. My husband is truly The Worst Person in the World to Shop for, and my father is a close second. My Father-in-Law? Not much better. I have no idea what to get these men and when I ask, they tend to look at me like I’m crazy. Not helpful.
When Smathers and Branson asked if I’d be interested in sharing their products, one quick peek at their website left me giddy. A one-stop shop for gifts for men? Yes! Yes, please!
A few products in my hands later, I’m completely sold. The artistry and design Smathers and Branson offers is stunning, but I’m most taken with the quality. Each item sold is crafted to last. The older I get, the more important this becomes. I can’t tell you how many wallets, belts, polos and flip flops my husband and I have cycled through in our years. I’d far rather invest my money in items that can hold up to wear and tear and don’t need to be rapidly replaced.
This commitment to quality is integral to Smathers and Branson‘s company mission, “to offer the finest products with customer service to match.” After speaking with their delightful staff, I can tell you they nailed the customer service component of their mission. There was a genuine interest in my wishes as a customer and they worked hard to help me place a unique order for the products I wanted. (Smathers and Branson is willing to customize products; check this out. Know a man who has everything? You can now breathe a sigh a relief!)
The variety of products offered is tremendous. With everything from polos to flasks to iPhone cases, you’ll find something that’s perfect for the guy in your life. And with the gorgeous ladies’ wallets, hats and belts available, go ahead and shop for the women on your list too. In fact, with their new dog collars and children’s belts available, Smathers and Branson is truly the go-to shop for the entire family–canine and human alike.
Each product is available in many patterns and themes, so whether you are shopping for the patriot, the fly-fisher, or the elephant martini-lover (no really, this is a design option!) in your life, you are set. Each item is hand-crafted and skillfully produced, and with your ability to select the color and design of the products you order, they are all truly thoughtfully-made and purchased gifts.
Who is Smathers in Branson and why should you make the choice to shop with them? They are two college roommates who decided to follow through with their interest in creating timeless items. They did this by working directly with Vietnamese artisans in a commitment to fair trade standards. Completely boss.
As a very cool treat for my readers, they are offering a giveaway for one of their signature belts, their most popular item! This hand-stitched traditional belt is 1.25” in width and is finished with full grain, chestnut colored leather and a solid brass buckle, elegantly packaged in a handmade wooden gift box.
Enter below to win a belt of your choice (you pick one of either the Old Glory, Parsons Stripe, or Sailboats design in the size of your specification). As long as you are 18 or older and a resident of the continental United States, you are eligible to enter. Giveaway will close on Monday, 6/8/15 at 5:30amET.
And while you are crossing-fingers to score one of these famous belts, go ahead and cross off your Father’s Day list by placing a quick order to Smathers and Branson. I’m thrilled to have met this brand and thrilled to share them with you. With their quality products and huge selection, you can’t go wrong. Stressing over finding gifts for the guys in your life? Gone! Go place and order and then relax and let the summer chilling get underway!
****Thank you to Smathers and Branson for sending me product for review purposes; my love for this brand is 100% genuine!****
