Father's Day Ideas

Father's Day is coming. Before I know it, it will be here. I made Hubby these frames last year. I personally feel you can never go wrong with sentimental. That being said, I would also like to get Hubby something special/fun/manly/he really wants. Something not techy or video game-esq...since he is the wise one in that area and I would only end getting something lame, out of date or for WAY too much money.

So today I put together a little "Things-You-Can-Get-The-Dads-in-Your-Life" or "TYCGTDiYL"...kidding. Let's just call it the Dad Gift Guide. Ahh much better. These are just a few things that spoke to me.

First, Sentimental.

Anything homemade with meaning behind it. Aka anything with photos, drawings, stickers, glued on macaroni, with the kids on it, made by the kids...you get the idea.

Next, Prints.

Anything you can order, print off and put in a frame. Something for him to hang in his office or put on his desk.

Moving on to Edible.

Who doesn't like some food? Try something new, original and special. Or you can just pick up his very favorite treats.

Salted Caramels 

Caramel Mallows 

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Mallows

Root beer Sampler
 Okay wrapping up my idea list, last by not least, Stylish/Clothing

You ladies know that we use major holidays as an opportunity to get our Hubbies clothes we want them to wear, feigning innocence, never admitting that we don't like what they choose for themselves. So here are just a few simple things...nothing over the top. Things they won't fight you about wearing.

Canvas Shoulder Bag

Casual Summer Tees

Bow Ties-they are all the rage

And while we are in clothing, here is a shout out to the most popular, longest standing Father's Day gift EVER...

The necktie.

No harm in getting another one...just make sure it doesn't have a barbecue or a Grateful Dead bear on it and you should be good.

You would think after all my virtual window shopping I would know what I am getting Hubby. Still don't. I do however have some projects for the Grandpas...I will share soon.
