When it comes to buying gifts, I’m a bit of a procrastinator. As usual, I waited for the last moment to purchase a Father’s Day present for this awesome guy:
While all this time, we’ve said he’s “SO hard to shop for”, but just give the man a twelve pack of these, and he’s good to go:
In addition to his beer of choice, I’ll be going over the house tonight to make dinner: turkey meatball subs are on the menu. Sounds tasty to me!
Looking for inspiration, I hit up gifts.com this weekend and found some interesting items being suggested as Father’s Day gifts. While he isn’t the easiest person to shop for, I do know there are some gifts I promise to NEVER give my father. Ever.
Necktie of the Month Club:
As a child, I asked my dad if he wanted a necktie for Father’s Day. It seemed to be “the” gift of choice. However, considering my dad’s usual work wardrobe includes a hardhat, he politely told his eight year old daughter “you should never buy me a necktie.”
Kilt Beach Towel:
Thank GOD we are not Scottish. NO ONE should own this thing!
The World’s Largest Gummy Bear: a five-pound Gummy Bear is equal to 1400 regular-sized bears.
ACK! Seriously?! That is A LOT of bear! There’s nothing that says “moderation” or “healthy balance” about that!
A Beer Holster:
Even with the stand by present of the MGD, there’s not a chance in this lifetime that I would buy this thing for my dad. Too embarrassing for all parties involved!
To my Dad: You are our family’s rock and you keep us on solid ground. I cannot thank you enough for everything. Trying to express it in blog form will never capture all the love we all have for you. You don’t need a beer hostler to know that you are pretty awesome. I am proud to be your daughter! Happy Father’s Day!
What plans do you have for your Dad on this Father’s Day?
