10 Gift Ideas for Fathers Day

Father Day is such a special time to celebrate all of the men in your life. If you are still on the look out for some fun and unique ideas for Father’s Day, you my friend are in luck! I have gathered together 10 fabulous ideas. 

1. Grey TOMS. Did you know every pair of Toms shoes you buy, the company donates a pair to a child in need? What a great gift that you can feel great giving. Not only are providing for the men in our life, you are also providing for a special child who is in need of shoes. Awesome!

2. Tumbler leather belt from Banana Republic. A casual looking belt that goes great with any look. When was the last time your man got a new belt?

3. Coupon Book. Create your own DIY coupon book. I love this idea. My boys do it every year and it is such a fun way to get all of the family involved. Check out this Free Father’s Day Coupon Book by Beauty and Bedlam filled with ways to make him feel special!

4. iPod + Nike. It tracks all the running and on the iPod. Plus, you can then upload it all online, challenge friends, track your progress. It’s his own digital personal trainer. He will love it!

5. Deluxe Electronic Golf Club Kooler Caddie. What a great gift for any golf lover. Set this stainless steel golf-themed beverage dispenser in your bag along side your clubs. He will be the talk of the golf course.


6. Apple iPad 2. On the top of everyone's wish list this year, the touch screen Apple iPad 2 tablet. Browse photos, email, web, books, iTunes and thousands of apps.  

7. Cargo Swim Trunks. When is the last time your man got a good stylish pair of swim trunk. Why not get him some for Fathers Day? 

8. Leather Journal. Does your hubby like to write down his thoughts? Why not get him a handmade Leather Journal? A place he write down his thoughts, quiet times and so much more. 

9. Fossil Tablet CoverIs Dad tossing around his iPad like it's a toy? Help him out and protect his favorite toy with this Fossil tablet cover

10. A Father's Legacy What a great way for Dad to share his life story with his children or grandchildren. What a great way to keep your husband, father, grandfathers legacy written in their own words.

At the end of the day a lot of these are all just 'things'. Reality is not everyone can afford or want to spend money on a gift. While this is a fabulous list and I am sure your husband, father and grandpa would be happy to receive them there is truly NOTHING like a handmade card from the kids or you. When is the last time you told your dad or husband how much you appreciate them? A simple handwritten letter letting them know just how much they mean to YOU will be the best present they could ever get! So tell me, What are you getting the special men in your life on Father's Day?
