Last Minute Father's Day Gift Idea.
I want to congratulate all the men out there who are working diligently to be good fathers whether they are stepfathers, or biological fathers or just spiritual fathers. T. D. Jakes
With Father’s Day around the corner have you bought something yet to thank the male role model in your life, your children’s and, yes, that means ex’s also. Here is a super quick list I put together for you to take the guessing game out. Some of them are just a few quick clicks, happy shopping. I’m here to remind you that Father’s Day is right around the corner — it’s close enough (2.5 days away). Father’s Day falls this Sunday, June 18th and I’m here to help you find the perfect gift.
Shopping for Dads is hard, trust me I know. I’ve rounded up some the best selling and top rated gift ideas for every type of Dad. Looking for something unique? I have you covered. There’s a little something in here for everyone. Here we go:
Thoughtfully Co., a few days ago I wrote about all their neat gifts that are curated for all types of dads. Check out the article, it's amazing!
Dad needs his own Gear! First up is our coveted Diaper Bag. Dad wants to take kiddo out and should have something fashionable, masculine and functional! Diaper Dude has got the 411 on men's diaper bags. Most importantly, Chris, AKA Diaper Dude has written his second book
My favorite Diaper Dude bag is the convertible backpack plus it converts easily into a convenient messenger bag, over the shoulder bag or tote. Oversized front zip pocket for bibs, diapers, wipes & any essentials. Large main compartment with divided pockets for diapers & wipes, separate Velcro closed pocket for laptop or tablet. Cushioned changing pad, large zip-closed pocket located in back for extra storage. Zip closed insulated bottle holder, exterior mesh bottle holder. Stroller straps, adjustable padded shoulder strap, carry handle, zip closed flap pocket for personal items like wallet and keys and durable textured fabric
Chris has also written his second book, Dude, you're a dad now! Written in Pegula's everyman voice and filled with humorous takes on fatherhood from the front lines, the book is an easy-to-read resource for new dads, combining hard-won lessons learned, pitfalls to avoid, and practical advice from a dude who hasn't lost his identity (or his sanity).
Filled with useful information, hilarious stories of dad madness, a little psychology and science, and engaging sidebars, Diaper Dude covers everything from bonding, babyproofing, and when you'll have sex again to toddlerhood, tantrums, and tag-teaming with your partner to cover all the bases while staying (somewhat) sane.
Award-winning DockATot goes wherever dad wants to hang out with his little one, from the lake to the park and home. DockATot is the multitasking docking station for babies and toddlers. The DockATot Baby Lounger gives parents a safe, snug, soothing spot for little ones to comfortably relax, play, and get in tummy time and sleep with a unique shape and design. DockATot is totally portable whether you're a jet-setting family or you just want to move the docking pod from room to room, it reduces risk of flat head syndrome (a result of a baby lying on one side of the head more than the other) and it makes tummy time more easy and way more fun by giving baby an ideal spot to prop them up and develop neck strength. As your baby grows older and is transitioning from a crib to a bed, the air-permeable bumpers act as bed rails and give little ones a snug sense of security in their big kid bed.
All dads must have their own car seats, moms gone and dad wants to take the baby out but can't, because he doesn't have a seat. Don't leave dad stranded! Looking good on the outside is something to be treasured, but we all know it’s what’s on the inside that counts. That’s why we designed the radian rXT with your child’s security and safety as top priorities. Premium materials and thoughtful safety features like a steel alloy frame, aluminum reinforced side walls, energy absorbing EPS foam, and a reinforced adjustable head support keep your little one safe and sound.
Next up, toys that will bond dad with kiddos. Learning Source has you covered, especially with their STEM Toys. We love STEM Engineering & Design: Building Set Playground. Helps encourage your child to come up with their own designs or they can follow the Challenge Cards, which include how to build different pieces of equipment on a playground (a twisty slide, a swing set, a seesaw, and more). Reproducible worksheets based on the engineering design process are included in the Guide.
Is your dad a tech guy? He will love JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speaker. Full-featured splashproof portable speaker with surprisingly powerful sound in a compact form. Take crystal clear calls from your speaker with the touch of a button thanks to the noise and echo canceling speakerphone. Wirelessly connect up to 2 smartphones or tablets to the speaker and take turns playing impressive stereo sound. Built-in 3000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery supports up to 12 hours of playtime and I have to mention this again because it's huge, no more worrying about rain or spills; you can even submerge Flip 4 in water!
Treat dad to Sunday breakfast in bed with Wexler Deli! Wexler's Deli stands for three things: tradition, craftsmanship, and quality. Born of a desire to serve classic Jewish deli food made by people who care, Wexler's uses old-school methods to hand craft our pastrami and smoked salmon. After curing in a special blend of salt and spices, there meats and fish are slowly smoked in-house over apple wood and sliced by hand in front of your eyes. Their pickles don't come from a jar; we barrel ferment them in salt brine. This is the real Jewish soul food. Just ask our family. I highly recommend ordering bagels, lox, coleslaw, potato salad and of course, there pickles! Voila, you’ve got Sunday morning wrapped up pretty nicely.
Want to make dad a surprise, Foodstirs has Real Dads Bake Bundle kits. Start and end dad’s day in the sweetest possible way! This baking bundle is packed with goodness, from our Organic Sunday Stacks Pancake and Organic Brooklyn Brownie quick-scratch mixes to a cookbook from trained chef and obsessed actor, Freddie Prinze Jr! If it’s too late to get the box expedited, pop into your local Gelson's and pick up one of their baking mixes. Their organic, ethically sourced mixes take only minutes to turn batter into better brownies, cookies, and cakes, so you don’t have to plan a project to make memorable moments
The gift that keeps giving and it’s for the entire family, memberships to your favorite family friendly learning centers and or theme parks:
Happy Father's Day! If you’re very lucky, you have an uncle, godfather or other caring man close to you who has been a unique mix of friend, family, mentor and/or father figure to you through the years I hope you enjoy your Father’s Day.
