A couple fun + unique father's day finds!

Love this picture!

So I don't know about all of you, but it sure is hard to figure out what to buy for the daddy for Father's Day...  This time is even more difficult, because not only do I have to find something for my daddy, but also it is Lee's very first Father's Day!  I need to make this one extra special...but gosh, what to do?  I have toying with the idea of a beer/whiskey type basket (which I know he'd love...), but that has been done before.  Then I thought of doing something typical- like Ledoux's handprint with a little note... but that's not quite enough (although I do plan on doing that!)  So I went on a search to find some unique father's day finds that he would not only like, but actually use!  I found some pretty nifty stuff, and felt like I should share some of these little gems with y'all! Here is what my Father's Day gift hunt turned up:

1.) Datevitation
OMG. Love this.  What is better then giving the gift of dates and special time to the daddy(s) in your life? This gift is so much fun, and totally customizable and unique!  Simply visit their website here, and choose whatever 'dates' you would like to include in your coupon book.  They can be stay-at-home dates, go-out dates, and everything in between.  You can make the coupon book come from you, from your sweet baby, or a combo of both.  They have over 350 different date coupons to choose from, and you can make your own coupon book with as many as you want!  I chose 12 different, unique ones that I am sure Lee will love.  Some are father-daughter dates, some are dates for he and I, and others are family dates (like a night with  NO phones, computers, etc.)  Annnnddd a bonus, use promo code FREESHIP to get free shipping.

2.) PopTags
Ok, so if you have a hubby or daddy who loves beer, this is a great and super unique gift!  It is a beer opener keychain, that is totally customized! I haven't yet decided what message I will put on it... and might even just go boring and say something like "Dada, happy 1st Father's Day"  I just love this gift, and know Lee will too!  Check out their Etsy Store here  I plan on pairing this with some of Lee's favorite beer.

3.) Personalized Grilling supplies
My husband loves to grill.  He grills everything. (Enter the Home Improvement/Tim Allen man grunt here).  What is better than a personalized spatula for his grill or branding iron for his steaks and burgers?  Nothing!  The spatula can be ordered and personalized here, and the branding irons here.  I am a bit obsessed with the idea of the branding irons...and can see Lee branding everything he grills going forward...a gift he will def love.  You could easily order one of these, and put together a grilling gift with seasonings, a 6 pack of beer, and a gift card to get some steaks...

4.) Customized Coffee Cup
If the daddy in your life is a coffee drinker, you must check this out!  Customized coffee mugs with a caricature of daddy and child!  All are done custom, so send this seller a message via his etsy store here.  Wouldn't this make an awesome gift, and a great keepsake for years to come? I die!  Pair it with dad's fave coffee, or better yet... put his coffee in it on Father's Day morning.  LOVE.

So there you have it, my top picks for Father's Day this year... what are you getting for the dad in your life?  I am always looking for more ideas!
