Share Article

Gift company AREAWARE makes the search for Father's Day Gifts easier this year, with top recommendations on display for buyers at this year's International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago.

With Father’s Day fast approaching, consumers’ thoughts are turning again to getting the perfect present for dad. Known for its gifts and home accessories, AREAWARE offers a collection of high design items with a modern edge that are equally impressive and unique.

This year, get dad something he can enjoy all summer long in the comfort of his own backyard. AREAWARE’s wooden and stainless steel Star Spangled Spatula pays homage to the USA’s stars and stripes and our country’s love affair with outdoor grilling. Hand crafted of solid walnut and stainless steel, the patriotic present is hand fabricated by one of the oldest and most-respected cutlery manufacturer in the United States using energy harvested from Massachusetts' Deerfield River.

Pay tribute to a playful, fun loving dad with the gift of a non-traditional, “grown-up” take on a robot toy. AREAWARE’s NEW Cubebot characters include the powerful Ninjabot, available in small and micro, and micro versions of Cubebot’s complex companions, Julien and Guthrie. Cubebot’s hard, beech wood frame is held together with elastic bands, which allow for added flexibility and possibility when transitioning the playful puzzle from cube form to robot form. Julien and Guthrie are designed in the same format as the traditional Cubebot puzzle, but they add a higher level of challenge when folding back into cube form.

Other ideas for design minded dad’s include: Prism Corkscrew, an octagonal hardwood enclosure reveals a corkscrew when the magnetic halves are pulled apart with a simple twist; Sphere Bottle Opener, a smooth, ergonomic bottle opener that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand; Concrete Desk Set, a weighty set of office accoutrement, including tape dispenser, pencil holder, and small tray; and Color Dipped Bottle Opener, which cleverly functions as a lever to pry off a bottle cap with a single bent nail and is magnetized on either side, one to catch the bottle cap, and the other to hang on the fridge.

AREAWARE is exhibiting at the International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago from March 15th – March 18th, 2014, in booth #5737 in the Discover Design section. The company also sells direct to consumers via an e-commerce platform, http://www.areaware.com.
