Gift Guide for Dad

I have been telling you I was going to post a Father’s Day Gift Guide since last week when I told you about the Dollar Shave Club. My expert ability to procrastinate and the fact that the men in my life are really hard to buy for has me finally getting this Gift Guide for Dad to you the week of Father’s Day. Coming up with creative gifts for Dad is hard so I have pulled ideas past gifts that I have given Tim and my dad to compile this list.
.01 Dad’s Playbook–This is a collection of quotes from famous coaches that inspire dads to motivate, mentor, discipline and love their children. Perfect for any sports obsessed dad, the author takes the wisdom of these coaches and applies it to fatherhood.
.03 Bluetooth Speaker–We are a family that loves music playing in the background and between Tim and the 4 kids we have had some jacked up looking Bluetooth speakers. I kid you not when I tell you we had not one, but two teddy bear Bluetooth speakers. I love this speaker because it has a ton of extra features and it is also great looking.
.04 Charles Ellis Pocket Squares–I love it when a man wears a pocket square. To me it just finishes the look. When Tim and I first got married it took a while for the accountant in him to give in and finally embrace my need for him to wear one. I have purchased several for him from Shaia’s in Birmingham not really paying attention to who the designers were. I met Chad Ellis of Charles Ellis Sartorial about a year ago and after looking at his work I realized the first pocket square I purchased for Tim was one of his designs. His bespoke Sartorial line can be purchased in Birmingham at several locations and his ready to wear line can be found online at www.charliebham.com. Both lines are amazing and made in Alabama using the finest craftsmanship and materials.
.05 Clarisonic Face Brush–I guess Clarisonic finally caught on to the fact that our husbands are secretly using ours and decided to make one in black just for them.
.06 Leather Bound Journal–Tim is dedicated to writing in his journal. He has written in it daily as long as I have known him. Last year for Christmas I decided it was time to up his game with a leather journal. He tells me it is one of his favorite gifts.
.07 Yeti Soft Sided Cooler–Yeti Coolers keep ice frozen for a freakishly long time, but the traditional ones are heavy. These soft-sided ones are much lighter and still get the job done. We gave one to my dad last Christmas and he loves it.
