Father's Day gifts from the Eiteljorg Museum Store

by Robert Tate, Eiteljorg director of Merchandising | Jun 13, 2013

Father’s Day is the one day set aside to remember our father, dad, papa or daddy.  With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we sometimes take dad for granted unless the chips are down.  When the chips are down, we reach out to our father. We draw from those life lessons that he taught to weather life’s storms. Fathers represent the warmth and glow of home and hearth.

Here are a few of our favorite gifts to thank dad or to remember and celebrate our fathers:

Father’s Eyes Wool Blanket by Pendleton

Our Father’s Eyes blanket is a tribute to the men who watch over and guide us as we journey through this earth.  The diamonds represent the eyes of a father.  They are symbols of the clarity and wisdom with which he watches over and guides his children.  Arrowheads signify the unwavering protection a father provides for his family and the direction that he offers to his sons and daughters.

Member Price $193.80 Retail Price $228.00

Roll-up Blanket by Pendleton

Pendleton Blanket

Enjoy the outdoors rain or shine with our nylon-backed blanket. Our special roll-up design and carrying handle make it perfect for the adventure-ready dad. Stash one in the trunk for anything from impromptu roadside picnics to beach parties.  100% wool front and nylon back. 

Member Price $100.30 Retail Price $118.00


The Thomas Kay Collection by Pendleton

While our pioneering ancestors depended on it for light, we enjoy it simply for its ambiance and aroma. These long and clean-burning soy and beeswax candles are made in New York. Comes in a Pendleton Wool pouch with a pocket for a match box.

Member Price $49.30 Retail Price $58.00

 Thomas Kay Zippo Lighter

This patented windproof lighter has been an American icon in peace and war for nearly eight decades. It is a symbol of our nation's innovation and reliability. Like the original, this 1941 Replica™ Brushed Chrome Windproof Lighter is made in Bradford, Pennsylvania.

Member Price $40.80 Retail Price $48.00

We hope you enjoy this Father's Day! I know I will.
