Father's Day

Father's Day

You ever know - just KNOW - that you have to get something done but you keep stalling?? I've been doing a lot of reading lately on the Enneagram and my type 1 perfectionist keeps tapping the brakes on my progress - damn her!

The cause of my procrastination? Father's Day - specifically products for fathers for this upcoming Father's Day  //  Several people have reached out to me and I apologize that I haven't immediately said - yes, I have THIS - or THIS - OR THIS!

I mean, what can you possibly get the man that will very likely give you his last breath if you need it more.

It's no surprise that I am a daddy's girl (shocker, right). He's the guy that can fix or build about anything - there is no obstacle too big to conquer. Traits I inherited from him: stubborn (I will reluctantly agree to that) - hard working (yes, but I can easily talk myself into cutting out early to pontoon on a nice day, only to put in double hours on a rainy day) - laid back (hello, Norwegian) 

When looking for that perfect gift, my first question is - what does your dad (or husband) like to do? Is he a grill master? perhaps an engraved utensil set or Traeger spice box // He is a new dad? maybe something with the newborns foot prints (mug, keychain, etc) // Are you always asking for a knife to cut something? maybe a personalized pocket knife - the one shown is engraved with a handwritten message and lasered on - 100% customized - NOT A FONT // Does he have a man cave or garage bar? maybe a nice set of personalized slate coasters // Maybe a wood phone holder/charging station? // Is he a craft beer drinker? pair a custom bottle opener with his favorite local brew // Personally, I think that you can never go wrong with a tumbler or koozie - others might say that they have mugs coming out of their ears..... tomato / tomaatoe // Does he have a home office? maybe a nice custom sign

Regarding the sign idea: in preparation for these products, I found some super cute quotes to use on a custom sign.... something like this perhaps:

  • To the world you are a Father, but our family you are the world
  • I'm as lucky as can be, for the world's best dad belongs to me
  • dad [noun]: someone who gives great advice and is always encouraging and protective / the often overlooked and underappreciated parental figure / he listens to his child, he cares for their interests and never laughs at their mistakes
  • father [noun]: protector, teacher and encourager; a person who picks you up when you fall, brushed you off and lets you try again; admired and much loved; often referred to as a son's first hero and daughter's first love (also see: superman)
  • DAD: a sons first hero / a daughers first love
  • Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad

Tell me what's on your mind. Shoot me a quick message and I'll be happy to help you give that perfect gift for the father/husband/boyfriend/grandpa this coming Father's Day!

I did what every questionably sane person would do…. I bought a laser machine. His name is Felix – Felix the Helix – and he is amazing!
