Dad, if you’re about to read this—stop.
Okay, now that it’s just us, here’s a peek behind my holiday shopping process. Every year, my sister and I go through the same thought process when making our list for my dad. What new golf gadget has come out? Does he need any new polo shirts or sweaters? (Yes, nearly always.) Is there some techy thing he’d be curious about, a new pickleball paddle we could get monogrammed, an app for his piano keyboard so he could learn to play a few Billy Joel songs?
And these ideas are all great and good, but the problem is, we’ve gone through them once a year for the past 30-something years. This year, we’ve decided to appeal to one of his unique personality traits we’ve never leaned into before: his sweet tooth.
We grew up in a house where “bedtime snack” was a meal, and we gently joke that my dad always has to have a breakfast dessert after his Cheerios—usually a donut of some sort. But when N!CK’s launched their ice cream bundles, I instantly knew this would be something to gift my dad in December. Even better? I’m actually excited to place this order and see his reaction (and okay, yes, I *will* plan on helping him taste-test a few of my favorite flavors).
Here’s why we love N!CK’s for a gift
The sweet combinations are endlessly customizable for the person you’re gifting. Whether they’re a bar aficionado, a connoisseur of ice cream sandwiches, or just a classic ice cream lover, N!CK’s delivers Swedish-style desserts that are sure to delight.
My personal pick? For someone whose ice cream preferences I wasn’t totally sure about, I’d choose the Best Seller’s Bundle, which has six of N!CK’s best-selling pints, all with no added sugar. But specifically, I know my dad is into salted caramel, butter pecan, and mint chocolate chip whenever we go out. All of those happen to be in The Flavorites bundle, which is what I’ll be sending to his house for a sweet treat.
