Father's Day 2014

Father's Day is just around the corner, and what are you getting dad?  Last year, for our first father's day, I was completely lost as to what to get for King Diaper's daddy (aka my hubby!).  While looking online for ideas, I came across a true winner.  Every dad needs a hat!  What could be better?

I ordered Craig a simple hat that he has loved and worn every where!  I had no idea that he would like it and completely took a gamble on that decision.  One year later, its still a winner!

His hat came from Goorin Brothers.  Its just a simple fedora style hat that goes with everything.  The Everyday Fedora is a winner.  If you are looking for a timeless gift that dad will really like.  Go for it! You won't be disappointed!

What are some other ideas for dad?
  • Magazine subscriptions are a great gift for someone in your life.  Kindling Quarterly is a bit pricey, but it is a magazine geared specifically toward dad's.  
  • I'm a sucker for personalized gifts.  Tiny prints has lots of simple solutions that can be customized  with ease.  These kind of gifts really give the impression of time, thought and effort!  
  • Etsy has lots of great gifts that you can search for by occasion.  Just type in Father's Day and see what all shop owners have to offer!
If you are looking to make something for dad, I recommend things that are simple.
  • Take a series of pictures with your children holding the letter's D-A-D, etc.  Frame them and here is a great gift just for dad.
  • Coupons for things like mowing the lawn, taking out the trash, etch.  Those are always fun and easy!
  • Put together a gift basket or bag full or dad's favorite snacks.  Who wouldn't love that?
Be creative and think about what dad really likes and enjoys.  I have learned from my dear hubby that simple is always better and that men are way less complicated than we give them credit for.  Whatever you do, make it something fun and personal.  He's going to love it no matter the price tag.  Its the effort and thought that went into the gift itself.  

Have a great Sunday.  And get busy on Father's Day!  Make it fun and memorable.  Next year, you will be smiling and still remembering something special.
