Keep it dry
Anyone who has travelled to a destination that features the beach or swimming pools has probably faced this situation: What do you do with your wet swimsuit for the trip home? ALOHA Collection’s stylish splash-proof travel pouches can help. Available in three sizes at Forever Summer, these pouches are made from soft, lightweight, waterproof material. They’re a perfect way to stow damp swimsuits, post-workout activewear, sunblock and toiletries that can leak during travel. When carried like a clutch, the pouches can also protect belongings inside from splashes, light rain or spillage from things like your fourth frozen margarita.
It is often said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and studies have shown the adage is true for the majority of men. Studies have also shown that food is the way to a woman’s heart, too, in almost half of women. But the experience of eating is more than just tasty food; it’s also the beverages, the ambiance, the dinner conversation and the accoutrements, including the tableware. These heart-shaped, stainless steel dessert spoons were designed for Alessi by Italian designer Miriam Mirri. Sold in sets of four at Design Studio, the whimsical spoons can almost subliminally help set the mood for a memorable evening with the object of one’s affections.
Much better than a tie
Guys like playing cards. Guys also like to drink while they play cards. Drinks spill when guys play cards and even if they don’t, cold drinks drip with condensation in hot climates like the Cayman Islands. Playing cards and liquids don’t mix very well and when they do mix, guys get angry. This Father’s Day, buy a gift that can keep the card-playing man in your life from getting angry; buy him waterproof playing cards from Books & Books. These cards, which come in an attractive metal tin, are illustrated with useful survival facts and tips like how to make a lark’s head knot, how to signal “I need help” using the international whistle code and how to create white smoke with a fire that can be more easily seen in a green environment — useful things to know for any dad.
A piece of beef jerky and a protein bar were walking down the street when they collided and, through a force of nature only understood through the prism of a comic book universe, they merged. What they combined to create was an epic meat bar. Now marketed in different flavours under the name Epic Meat Bars, these gluten-free snacks are designed to be a sensory experience while providing a great, Paleo-diet-friendly source of protein. Take the Beef Habanero Cherry Walnut Bar for example. These bars start with the foundation of 100 per cent organic, grass-fed beef, add walnuts, cherries and a touch of spice with habanero peppers. One 43-gram bar has 150 calories and only 2 grams of saturated fat, while offering 9 grams of protein. Other flavours available at Bay Market in Camana Bay include Chicken Sriracha, Venison Sea Salt Pepper, Bison Bacon Cranberry, Lamb Currant Mint, Turkey Almond Cranberry and Chicken Sesame BBQ. Captain Marvel would approve.
