What is the perfect gift to give the man who taught you how to ride a bike and fish? The answer is bacon. At least according to Oscar Mayer who is offering an assortment of Father’s Day gifts that came with a side of, you guessed it, bacon. Among the gift choices, a stylish money clip, bacon cufflinks and a Leatherman-esque multi-tool. I’d take all three, plus the bacon.
At the time of this writing, all three of the gift-choices were sold out. But don’t fear, you can follow Oscar Mayer on twitter to learn when the items will be restocked. Since I am not yet a father, (do dogs count?) I am sad to say that I don’t expect some sweet bacon cufflinks come Father’s Day. As sad as that is, I have to say that this promotion by Oscar Mayer is borderline genius. Even if I hardly ever have a reason to wear cufflinks, I would love to get them as a gift. Plus I’ve never turned down bacon, free or otherwise.
When it comes to Father’s Day, I suggest we all take Oscar Mayer’s advice, When words aren’t enough – Say It With Bacon.
