a father's day gift guide

I love gift guides.  And I also love shopping for other people! I think gift giving is my love language?  Can you be a combination of all of them? Because I think I'm that. I can't figure it out.  Anyway...here's what I rounded up for Brad for Father's Day! 

something practical, but I know that he will appreciate.  We want to keep those nice work shoes nice.

because he for sure could use one of these.  I think luggage is one of the most forgotten gifts but it is something that a.) lasts forever and b.) will always always always get used. 

a good book to remind him about what being a Father is all about (and another to read just for fun!)

I asked Brad one day what is one fail proof gift for guys and he said SOCKS.  Seriously?! But I guess it's one of those things that you never think to get yourself, but always nice to have.  A few fun sock options here, here, and here.

a fun game for his desk at work

a hammock! it's the perfect spot to be tackled by kids and/or to be snuggled by babies and/or to take a much needed summertime nap

to keep his favorite drink cold & NOT watered down (because that is very important)

of course, you can't go wrong with a classic tie

He is the best daddy ever and deserves to be recognized for all the hard work and self-sacrificing he does for our family.   Hope this gives you some inspiration for your guy in honor of the upcoming holiday!
