Father's Day & What Men want...

There are good reasons why flower’s and chocolate don’t sell out for the second largest retail event of the year. Women are the main buyer for Father's Day and buy the things they wish they got for special occasions: Thoughtful presents that take into consideration what their interests and priorities are!

I hope I am not going to be cancelled for saying this, but ahead of Father’s Day on June 18th, I thought it worth mentioning.

Men's love for carving boards can be attributed to a variety of factors, such as tradition, the sense of achievement, and the role they play in family gatherings. Below, I have discussed these factors in more detail:

  1. Tradition: Carving meat has been traditionally seen as a man's job in many Western societies. From the days of hunting and gathering, men have had the responsibility of procuring and preparing meat for their families, creating a sense of duty and role fulfilment. As a result, having the right tools, such as a high-quality carving board, evokes a connection to this traditional role and creates a sense of pride.
  2. Sense of Achievement: Successfully carving a well-cooked piece of meat can give a sense of accomplishment, as it requires skill and knowledge of the meat's structure and how to cut it properly. Owning a high-quality carving board is a testimony to their carving skills and showcases their talent to family members and guests.
  3. Family Gatherings: In many families, carving meat is a central part of shared meals, such as Sunday roasts or holiday feasts. Men who carve meat at these gatherings may feel an increased sense of responsibility for bringing people together and ensuring everyone is well-fed. A carving board can become a symbol of their contribution to these shared experiences, creating a stronger emotional connection to the tool.
  4. Personalisation and Ownership: High-quality carving boards, especially those that are customizable, give men the option to personalize their board with their name, a funny phrase, or a meaningful quote. This personalization cements their connection to their role as carver and gives them a sense of ownership.
  5. Quality and Craftsmanship: Many men appreciate high-quality, well-crafted, and durable tools that can last for years. A well-made carving board represents excellent craftsmanship and also serves as a practical tool for carving meat effectively without much hassle.

In conclusion, men's love for carving boards can be attributed to a mix of tradition, the sense of accomplishment, the importance of their role in family gatherings, the opportunity for personalization, and an appreciation for quality and craftsmanship.

They will love it even more when they can see how they are being made on our website.
