As Hallmark and pretty much every other advertiser is wont to remind us, Father’s Day is around the corner. That usually means commercials depicting happy 2 parent families with 2.5 kids, a dog and white picket fence gathering around a table and toasting dad, grandpa and all the patriarchal figures amongst us. But for many of us, this isn’t what life looks like. Granted, some brands are getting better at more accurately representing what family means these days and even folks themselves are getting in on the action of celebrating and sharing their non-traditional stories. Take, for example, the recent video that went viral this past Mother’s Day where a grown man recorded a message for his birth mother to thank her for giving him life.
Here at Babiekins, we wanted to celebrate family in all forms and the love that is manifested however said family may be constructed. To do this, we’re sharing stories on the blog of non-conventional Father’s Days celebrating all of those who stand in for the role. And we’ve teamed up with our friends over at Artifact Uprising to help create gifts that capture this incredible love.
