Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is just around the corner so it’s time to start thinking about what to get the men in our lives. I have the hardest time shopping for men, as all the stores recommend the same old things like: tools + ties, but come on how many of those do they really need?

Here are a couple of ideas from the two of us that we’ve found to be great hits, we hope you find them useful:

NO.1 Bucky Balls are a great gift for any kid-at-heart; it’s crazy how entertaining making all sorts of different formations can be!  But watch out, they’re incredibly addicting.

No.2 A gift basket can be a great solution for any gift dilemma. My dad loves cheese, so I’ve used this theme for a yummy basket a couple of times before. But any idea for a basket can work great, for father’s day I’m thinking: football, games, favorite snacks, great condiments & sauces.

This cheeseboard basket pictured below is from World Market, and is currently on sale for $29.99.

No. 3 I really really like DIY projects, I think it adds a ton thought and a great personal touch. Martha has some great ideas and free printables HERE, to get your creative juices flowing.

and now over to Em…

I love backyard campfires.  I think this fire pit would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift.  You can’t beat gathering friends and family in the yard without the hassle of camping and the gross bugs.  This one is on sale at Target this week for $49.

You could also make a s’more kit to go along with it…how cute and yummy.


Next, is a total classic; grill stuff.  I think I could buy Brad a new grill utensil for any birthday or occasion and he would we thrilled.  Check out these great deals at Amazon.

I found this fun thing at Crate and Barrel.  A 3 in 1 grill cleaning contraption ($7.95).  Yes, I think it might trick him with it’s funky and mannish appearance and be oh so enticing to use ;)

I am all about these spice rubs for only $4.95.  They look so delicious, and would be a great pressy for any guy.

Have you thought of any great Father’s Day gifts for this year?  Please share!!
