For Father’s Day this year, I decided to get my dad something beyond the customary tie or ceramic mug that says “#1 DAD!” I wanted to change it up. I was searching online for things I could possibly purchase for him. Electronics? Too expensive. Book? Too outdone. Wooden backless barstool? Yes!
The bar stool is such an understated yet functional piece of furniture for the home. As a gift, it is even more special because no one typically considers the bar stool. You see, my father is not only a great father–he is a fantastic grand-father to my children. He is a story teller and will often be found regaling them with tales about his own childhood in his old village in Ukraine. He’ll tell them of how he used to ice skate on the pond by his house or how he met their grandmother after she first bashfully asked him to walk her to school.
A bar stool would be the perfect purchase for a man such as my father. Some bar stools are pretty low and these kinds of seats would be the best for when he wants to tell stories to my kids. Now he won’t have to kneel on his tired and worn knees anymore. He will have his very own bar stool to sit comfortably on. I know that this bar stool isn’t just a simple little chair; it’s symbolic of everything my dad has done and how he deserves a rest.
