The accounts from a daughter who has no idea what to get her father for Christmas.
The Holiday season is finally here! And as exciting as that is, I sit here behind my laptop completely unaware of what to get my dad for Christmas. Everyone else in the family is covered. It’s always him that gives me a hard time. Every year I struggle to find anything for the man who needs nothing. Putting my frustrations aside, I began my search. He’s an outdoors guy, always particular about how the lawn should look. I began to think, “What is the main thing my dad complains about when out in the yard?”
The dog running after him while he mows the lawn always gets him annoyed. But I don’t know how to stop that from happening.
What about when the hot sun beats down on his back? I could buy him a hat but he loves the tan he gets from it anyway.
What about the amount of bugs he has to deal with due to our wooded backyard? He’s always being bothered by mosquitoes, flies, moths, etc. That could be something. I wondered if there might be a product out there that would make his yard work more enjoyable.
I started with Google, as most would, and typed in “insect repellent.” Your typical bug sprays came up, but we have plenty of those. I typed in words like lawn, home and garden, pest control and mosquitoes. Through those searches, I came across the DynaTrap. I saw a link that led to their different social media pages. After scanning through their Facebook page, I followed a link to their website. Then I started to read. I saw that they had outdoor and indoor traps of many different sizes. I went to the “What-We-Catch” tab and saw that they caught 10 different bug types, a lot that my dad complains about while out in the yard.
My favorite aspect was how environmentally friendly this product is. It’s pesticide-free and doesn’t catch any beneficial bugs to the environment. It looked like the different types of traps covered 1/4, 1/2 and 1 full acre of land. With our yard, the full acre would be the perfect! I picked up the phone and called my mom. She took a look at their products and loved what she saw. We picked out the DT2000XLP Decora Insect Trap. It got to us in no time and is already wrapped and under the tree! I am officially done with my shopping and can’t wait to see my dads face when he opens his new DynaTrap!
