This is it. You’ve got a few more days to get that perfect gift he’s going to love. Or pretend to love until you aren’t looking. Either way. I’ve got you covered!

So, Father’s Day is right around the corner and you aren’t quite sure what you’re going to do. That’s okay. You’re not alone. I know this because my wife has been asking me all week, “Honey, what do you want for Father’s Day?” I got to thinking and I’m just going to lay out all of the stuff I’ve seen, used, bought, etc that I think is pretty cool. And I’ll even try to break it into categories.

First up, for the expecting father:

This is it. This is his first Father’s Day. What better way to celebrate it than with some gear get him ‘Dadded Up’?Im The Daddy Swagbox

“I’m the Daddy” Swag Box from Daddy&Company

From their site: The DaddySwag gift set by Daddy & Co is the ultimate gift for any expectant father. A set of DaddyScrubs, included in the set, ensures the expectant dad will be ready and comfortable for the big moment. The “I’m the Daddy” white edgy tee gives dad a stylish and comfortable option for after baby is born and for the many exciting days ahead. Dad will be sure to let everyone at work know he’s a new daddy with his I’m the Daddy coffee mug –and have a spot for his much needed caffeine. The “I’m the Daddy” hat and sunglasses will show everyone just how proud he is of his new baby when out on walks or playing in the park. Finally, he can show his proud daddy status with stickers, pens, and magnets included in the set.

There’s a bunch of other stuff on their site. They sent me a t-shirt and hoodie a couple of years ago, and I still wear them on a regular basis. 


Alright, so the kid’s been born and he is official. Gift giving gets a little bit better now. There’s a plethora of things for dad now! Not gonna lie, I like to play with the toys almost as much as the kids do. So, don’t be afraid to get some toys! (This is also a great way to spend some bonding time.)

Kids = Tiny

I’m going to post some books here. These are all books that I have read to my sons, or still read on a regular basis. I will be adding full book reviews later on, but for now, all of these books have been vetted by my sons as being good books.

First, any book by Bob Shea is going to be amazing. If dad likes making up voices for characters in books…there is no lack in here. I’ve read almost every single book by this guy, and we love each and every one of them.Bob-Shea-Banner

And for after bedtimes…daddy might need a beverage:



Who doesn’t love a Tervis with Darth Vader on it?
Also, they are on sale for Father’s Day.








If he needs something a touch stronger, then these will keep his drink cool!

Is Dad a Reader?

Then, here’s a bookstore! These are a selection of books written by fathers. More importantly, fathers I know! So, you know they’re good. 😀

There’s so many more things to be found, and maybe none of these things float your boat, but hopefully they sparked something. Most of all, out of all the dads I’ve talked to (and it’s a lot) most of them just want their family to let them know that they are appreciated and a valuable part of the family.
