9 Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts Sure to Please Dad!

Father’s Day is quickly approaching so there’s no time like this Sunday to give Dad some extra attention. Looking for the perfect gift can always be a challenge. Experiences (from a coffee tasting to wine tasting, taking in a baseball game or spending hours at the driving range) go a long way. There’s nothing quite like spending quality time with Dad (or planning a date) to ring in the holiday.

Sometimes, the best gifts are those that hardly cost anything, a handmade card or making Dad a playlist (if he’s like my dad though, opt for music from his generation–Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, rather then your modern day favorites). The other piece of advice I took from my dad in the gift giving department is opt for presents that go in or fit on their dresser. We did our best! Here’s 9 gifts to help inspire you to find the perfect gift for Dad.

Gift Guide: PC Top Holiday Picks!

Who’s on top of their holiday shopping? Here are some of my personal picks of gifts I’ve gotten (mostly for myself) and loved!

1. Royal Apothic Conservatory Collection Candle in scent English Rose ($26) – this candle is lie a little piece of heaven. It’s a soy-blend wax and burns for 60 hours. It’s larger then it looks in the picture (5″h, 3″ square) and is gorgeous from package to scent. It’s like walking through a rose garden, the scent is superb.

2.  Sarah H. Reynolds Original Frame Notecards & Envelopes ($22/set of 10) – I love sending cards and this versatile set includes two of each print of five original charcoal frame drawings and ten envelopes by NY based artist, Sarah Reyholds. Leave your love note, thank you, or even your own drawing or picture inside one of these beautifully drawn frame (or use stamps!) and send. I like that they are artsy and give you a foundation to customize the card and they work for number of different occasions so they are handy to have around.

3. International Sanctuary Beautiful Green Necklace ($40) – As seen in my video campaign with SpaFinder (and regularly in photos on my instagram page, I wear this necklace all the time. This website (and necklace) are amazing. iSanctuary works to help victims of human trafficking reintegrate by employing survivors.  Their mission to end human trafficking through

Taraji P. Henson and Adrienne Bailon celebrate first anniversary of Courvoisier Rosé at NYC’s TOY

On Thursday night, Taraji P. Henson, Adrienne Bailon, Jennifer Williams, Kat Deluna (and the Pretty Connected team!) celebrated the first anniversary of Courvoisier Rosé at NYC hot spot, TOY in the Meatpacking District. 

The bartenders served up refreshing Courvoisier Rosé cocktails while guests enjoyed h’orderves by Chef Doron Wong and music spun by DJ Brooklyn Dawn. Courvoisier Rosé is delicious! And certainly a summery, refreshing approach to cognac that is crafted with a blend of Courvoisier and premium French red wine grapes. And at 18% Alc/Vol, in comparison to it’s 40% Courvoisier original counterpart, it goes down easier and tastes closer to a Rosé then cognac.

Somehow when the cupcakes came out and the celebration kicked off, I was cornered in the back of the bar, while the celebs of the evening we’re surrounded by cameraman. And as a result I woke up to a swarm of the first two images picked up all over the internet with my face piercing out of the back ground.

Since I was hanging out next to Adrienne Bailon, I couldn’t resist asking the Cheetah Girl who her outfit was by. She was so sweet, and excused herself to go have her friend check her tag and came back up to me to report it’s an ALC onesie — so cute! Love the back on it!

And on my first day of rocking my Modify watch (I literally got it in the mail that morning), I ran into the brands token marketing guy and could not resist an impromptu Modify Watches represent photo!
