Fathers Day Blog
I am SUCH a daddy’s girl. Being the only girl between two boys. I was always a bit spoiled. My dad is seriously the best. I always want to do something special for him; and yet, it’s always so hard to buy for the men in my life. My husband, who’s keeping up as a father of three little awesome boys, is also impossible to find meaningful and/or useful gifts for.
Breakfast in bed is always a great option and of course homemade cards from the boys; but I also like to have at least one physical gift for my husband to open and to send home to my dad. I compiled a list of some cool finds for you, I hope you like them and your men too!
The Endurance RUN headphones: An awesome set of headphones are always a good choice. My husband has been actively getting back in shape and he loves to run or cycle. I like the new JBL Reflect series wireless headphones. JBL Endurance RUN headphones are a wired sweat proof earphone with a tangle-free cord and microphone so users can take calls and listen to music while hiking or on a jog. It’s design provides flexibility to wear both in-ear and behind-the-ear.
Stanley Thermos Growler: A pretty cool gift if your dad or hubby likes to drink beer and enjoy the outdoors. We’ve always gone on camping trips ever since I was little girl growing up in Idaho. My dad LOVES to fish and being in nature. The Thermos is a simple way to take beer to the campsite or secret fishing spot, this on-the-go growler is vacuum insulated to keep your brew chilled for 16 hours. A heavy-duty handle makes pouring with one hand a snap and it’s BPA free.
Peeps Eyeglasses Cleaner: Both my husband and my father wear glasses. Peeps are such a cool, inexpensive little gift you can give to the men in your life (even for sunglasses). I think they are a great gift for one of the kids to give as well since they are so cheap. The carbon microfiber cleans both sides without damaging glasses and can easily be taken on go since it’s so tiny.
A Month of Lawn Mowing: or any other service for that matter. Give a young kid a job and your husband (or father) a break and hire someone to do a task they aren’t too fond of.
Customized Socks: I know most dad’s love socks no matter what. My dad is so proud of his patterned socks and he is beyond proud of his grandsons. I just found the coolest site where I can put my little guy’s faces on a pair of socks for my dad. I know he will LOVE them! TidaGear makes personalized socks and in the USA. I seriously think these are so cute. I put Robert, William and Timothy on a pair for their grandpa and dad.
Maggie Louise Chocolates: I recently discovered these at The Consumer Discovery Show in NYC and they are the bomb! They taste amazing (like old school flavors too) and they are the most amazing hand made chocolates I’ve ever seen. I’m getting some On the Green chocolates for my dad and the You’re the Bomb techie box for my hubby.
