Cooling off for Fathers Day...

A special cooler is a great Father's Day gift idea.  Here is the Gameday Style
 cooler post from the fall...so dad can keep his drinks cold in a super fancy cooler like a Yeti or in a super cute hand-painted cooler...



Need a gift idea for someone that takes their gameday seriously? 
 Perhaps a nice cooler would do the trick.  

It's easy to find a plain cooler and paint it up!  Southern Tide has held a cooler contest for the past two college tailgating seasons and here are what some folks came up with.   




Customizing a cooler with one's favorite team would be a popular gift.  Need some help doing so?  There is an entire Facebook page dedicated to the painting of coolers right here...

Here are a couple of darling team themed coolers from the Facebook page. 
You'll find more photos and tons of tips at the page.

This cooler is an investment but the recipient of it will be appreciative...it claims to keep ice frozen for up to 14 days.


You can also keep it classic with a Coleman Vintage.  Add a tasteful sticker to this metal guy and it becomes spirited.  You can purchase this Coleman from Orvis.
Finally, maybe you're looking for a unique cooler?  The Peterboro Basket Company makes this beautiful woven piece.

On Thanksgiving night, the chef covers the carved turkey carcass with water, and as the family party winds down, the roasted bones simmer away, forming a rich stock. The next morning, he adds aromatics and andouille, and stirs in a nice dark roux. “I like mine as dark as I can get it without burning it,” he
