FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE

YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL BABY, FROM THE OUTSIDE IN. CHASE YOUR DREAMS BUT ALWAYS KNOW THE ROAD THAT WILL LEAD YOU HOME AGAIN. GO ON, TAKE ON THIS OLD WORLD, BUT TO ME YOU KNOW YOU’LL ALWAYS BE, MY LITTLE GIRL.
— TIM MCGRAW

THIS QUOTE FROM TIM MCGRAW'S SONG "MY LITTLE GIRL," IS THE PERFECT REPRESENTATION OF THE MAN MY DAD IS. (WE ACTUALLY DID OUR FATHER-DAUGHTER DANCE TO THIS SONG WHEN I GOT MARRIED LAST YEAR) MY DAD'S NAME IS MARK, AND HE IS MY BIGGEST SUPPORTER, A TRUE SOFTY, ONE OF THE FUNNIEST MEN YOU WILL EVER MEET, AND AN AMAZING FRIEND. HE HAS ALWAYS WANTED THE BEST FOR MY SISTER AND I, AND HAS ALLOWED US TO LEARN AND GROW IN ANY DIRECTION WE CHOOSE. HE ALWAYS MAKES SURE WE KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG, KNOWS HOW TO KEEP HIS COOL (MOST OF THE TIME), AND GIVES THE BEST HUGS. I KNOW MY FUTURE IS BRIGHT, AND WITH A DAD LIKE MARK, HOW COULD IT NOT BE?

FATHER'S DAY IS A SPECIAL DAY FOR MANY PEOPLE, BUT MEN CAN BE TRICKY TO BUY FOR. I'VE GONE THROUGH SOME OF MY FAVORITE GIFT IDEAS FOR THE SPECIAL FATHER FIGURE(S) IN YOUR LIFE. FROM THE BUSINESS MAN, TO THE ATHLETIC MAN, THE FASHIONABLE MAN, THE MANLY MAN, AND THE SIMPLE MAN, THERE ARE IDEAS FOR THEM ALL!

BELOW THIS IMAGE, I HAVE POINTED OUT AND EXPLAINED 10 OF MY TOP PICKS FOR FATHER'S DAY 2017! ALL OF THE PRODUCTS I HAVE LINKED FOR YOU ARE UNDER $200, AND MOST ARE UNDER $100! I HOPE THESE IDEAS HELP MAKE YOUR FATHER'S DAY SHOPPING A LITTLE EASIER!

MY TOP 10 GIFT IDEAS:

1. LEATHER BRIEFCASE: NO MATTER THE KIND OF BUSINESS HE IS DOING, YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH A GREAT LEATHER BRIEFCASE! HE MAY NOT USE IT EVERYDAY, BUT HAVING IT, IF AND WHEN HE NEEDS IT, WILL BE VERY CONVENIENT.

2. DRESS-TO-PLAY SHOES: THESE SHOES ARE THE BEST, FROM WHAT MY HUSBAND SAYS. THEY ARE DRESS SHOES WITH A SNEAKER-LIKE BOTTOM. THESE ARE FROM COLE HAAN (DIRECT LINK HERE), AND THEY COME IN MANY COLOR COMBINATIONS. THEY ARE GREAT FOR WHEN HE PLANS TO GO FROM WORK TO PLAY, WITH SHOE CHANGE.

3. CANDY: FOR THE MAN WITH A SWEET TOOTH, THESE CANDIES ARE PERFECT. I RECENTLY TASTED THESE, ALONG WITH A FEW OTHER SUGARFINA PRODUCTS. HE WILL BE ALL SMILES FOR ANY OF THEIR CANDY OPTIONS!

4. ELECTRIC RAZOR: FOR THE MAN WHO NEEDS A LITTLE HELP CLEANING UP, A NICE ELECTRIC RAZOR IS A GREAT GIFT. MY HUSBAND USES HIS OFTEN IN BETWEEN TRIPS TO THE SALON, AND IT ENDS UP MAKING HIS PROFESSIONAL TRIMS LAST TWICE AS LONG.

5. BUTTON-DOWN: WHAT MAN DOESN'T NEED MORE BUTTON-DOWN SHIRTS? WHETHER IT'S FOR WORK, PLAY, OR DATE NIGHT, THEY CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY.

6. WHISKEY CUBES: THESE ARE STAINLESS STEEL CUBES, THAT CHILL YOUR DRINK, WHILE LEAVING IT DILUTION-FREE. THEY AREN'T JUST FOR WHISKEY EITHER, THEY CAN WORK FOR ALL SORTS OF DRINKS!

7. KNIFE SET: A NICE KNIFE SET IS TRUTHFULLY A GOOD GIFT FOR ANYONE THAT ENJOYS PLAYING AROUND IN THE KITCHEN. IT IS AMAZING THE DIFFERENCE A GOOD KNIFE CAN MAKE!

8. WIRELESS EARPHONES: IF HE IS ACTIVE, HE NEEDS A PAIR OF WIRELESS EARPHONES. THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN AN EARPHONE CORD BOUNCING AROUND AND GETTING STUCK WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO GET YOUR SWEAT ON. AS I HAVE RECENTLY REALIZED, ONCE YOU GO WIRELESS... YOU REALLY NEVER GO BACK!

9. SNEAKERS: A FASHIONABLE AND COMFY PAIR OF SNEAKERS ARE A NECESSITY FOR ANY MAN. MY HUSBAND OWNS THE ONES I HAVE LINKED ABOVE, AND HE WEARS THEM NONSTOP! ALSO, THIS SPECIFIC MATERIAL IS SUPER EASY TO CLEAN (SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE). GIVE THEM A QUICK SCRUB ON THE MORE STAINED AREAS, THROW THEM IN THE WASH AND THEY'LL COME OUT GOOD AS NEW.

10. COMFY SWEATSHIRT: DOESN'T EVERYONE NEED A COMFY SWEATSHIRT? THIS GREY NIKE FULL-ZIP SWEATSHIRT IS A GREAT GO-TO. THE MATERIAL IS COMFY AND WARM, BUT WITH THE FULL LENGTH ZIPPER ALLOWING AIR FLOW, HE WONT EVER GET TO HOT.

WISHING ALL OF THE DADS, GRANDPAS, STEP-DADS, UNCLES, FATHER-IN-LAWS, HUSBANDS, BROTHERS, FRIENDS, AND OTHER AMAZING FATHER FIGURES OUT THERE AN AMAZING FATHER'S DAY!
