Father's Day is a special day for all of the papas out there. It is a day to let them know how very loved and appreciated they are. 

If you are anything like me, gift giving is not your forte. Seriously, every single year I think that I'm going to do some grand gesture...then it comes down to it and I've either run out of time to order the cool thing I wanted...or I've spent the money I had allocated for something special...or we're all just tired and we end up hanging out at home. Lol. Every. Single. Year. 

So...I'm trying to get this under control. And I thought I'd share some ideas with you...again, in case you're anything like ME! 

Here are some links to some things I thought were cool this year (click on the word "here" next to each item to view the item!!): 

1. For the dad who likes sentimental gifts:
*Make a photo book here.
*Get a leather keychain, personalized with the kids' names or a family motto here.

*Get a modern acrylic framed photo here.
*Make some Father's Day crafts with paint and kids' handprints and frame them.

2. For the health and fitness dad:

*Get him his own essential oils account here. I'll help with any questions!** 

*Get this yummy antioxidant drink (moms, you can steal some!!) here.

*Sign him up for a CrossFit or other fitness session that you think he would like.

*Get him some amino acids for post-workout muscle-building and repair here.


3. For your SuperHero dad:

*Get this awesome SuperHero tee here.

*Get this framed SuperHero artwork here.

*Get this best dad shirt here.


4. For the modern dad:

*Get a docking station for his dresser here.

*Get this personalized wooden watch here.

*Get this AirPods docking/charging station here.
*Grab this natural, toxin-free shaving kit here.


5. For the BBQ master:

*Grab this personalized grill set here.

*Get this funny BBQ timer here.

*Love these grilling planks here.

*These 6-pack holders with opener are always a hit here.

*Love this backyard sign, here.


6. For the dad who likes the gift of time together: 

*Go on a kayaking trip near you. We went here once. 
*Go on a picnic at a favorite place near your home. Make my fried chicken & eat it cold (recipe here) with your fave sides and dessert.

*Go to his favorite restaurant and for a walk afterward. One of our faves in L.A. is Republique.  

7. For the artsy dad:

*Hit up a local museum. One of our faves is The Getty

*Buy some artwork. I'm digging some of these drawings from Restoration Hardware.

*Make and frame some of your own artwork (or the kids' art). Bonus points for using a thick white museum matting to really show off your art. I would choose a white or black frame. You can usually find online coupons for frames at Joann Fabrics
*Buy him some art supplies (if he likes to paint, buy him a canvas and refill his favorite type of paint). 

8. For the athletic/sports-loving dad:

*Buy him tickets to a sporting event you know he'd enjoy.

*Send him out for a golf day with his buddies. 

*Take him to a go-kart racetrack and have some fun for the day. 

*Go hiking at a local spot. Prepare a picnic lunch. 

If I'm anything like my normal self, I'll probably end up with a gift card to his favorite store and a nice dinner! lol. That's an idea too! ;) 

Whatever you do and no matter how much you spend on dad, what matters most is that he knows he is loved and appreciated. Have a wonderful day celebrating your special guy!
