Here’s my dearest DADDY, and if you only knew:

his golden heart, how well he has loved us and modeled a life of integrity and authenticity, and all the profound moments he has shown me the face of God…you would know I am simply a ragamuffin scalawag of a beggar, hoping to reflect a glimmer of his glory.

Personalized Hammer Gift Idea

You don’t have to personalize it with the generic ‘best Dad ever’ or even a name. Some folks choose “Thanks for helping me build my life” which is such a powerful sentiment. Or how about an inside joke or simply ‘you’re loved so dearly’…just be sure to double check grammar and spelling and don’t be snarky since the recipient will have a hammer in his hand…ha!

Luxurious Bedding for Father’s Day?

Maybe nooooooot what you were thinking…right? These sheets deserve so much praise based on the quality and comfort they have delivered to me personally for years! They are included in the round-up because my husband chose them and loves ’em.

Yeti Rambler Mug

Another choice inspired by my beloved. I gifted him one of these, and he is still nutty for it. It’s maybe the most over-engineered camp mug on the planet that is also dishwasher safe and an overachiever with a double-wall vacuum (so drinks stay hot or cold til the last sip).

Pink BBQ Plank

Familiar with Himalayan salt? Its stable crystal structure allows it to hold a temperature well. You can chill it to use as a serving platter for sushi, or heat it over a grill or stovetop to cook veggies. Cooking on salt imparts enhanced flavor, and the mineral content delivers more nuanced flavor than table salt. Himalayan salt is also long-lasting and naturally antibiotic, needing little more than wiping with a damp sponge after most uses.

A Lingering Luxe Scent Wafting Through Our Home

An anniversary trip to Paris in 2012 found us in a Paris apartment, steps from Diptyque’s flagship boutique. This scent, Volutes, was brand new, and my husband and I fell for it. Back at home, we couldn’t keep our sons from sneaking into our bathroom for sprays. So it has become my go-to gift for the men in my life.

What does it smell like? Lovely hints of iris, tobacco, honey, pink pepper, saffron, and myrrh as well as secrets. Paris. Tres complex.

Dad Moments

I shared this hula-help moment this time last year, and it speaks volumes about a father’s love and participation in a child’s joy.

    Why is it that I’m always at a loss as to what to get the men in my life for Father’s Day. I think of things when it’s not that time of year then promptly forget my great ideas. So thank you for a bunch of great ideas.

      I’m the same way! I do enjoy buying things throughout the year and tucking them away. This is one of those areas where I can make the blog work for me – and can refer back! 🙂

    These are such unique, great ideas, Michele. My husband is SO difficult to buy for. I’m in love with that record doormat! Hope you’re having a feel well day! xox

      It’s so cool, and I love those things that are practical without feeling practical! I am getting exercise today while I feel up to it so that’s a step forward – thanks for thinking of me and visiting here. 🙂
