Father's Day Gift Ideas

It's panic time of course, because we're the biggest procrastinators around, and Father's Day has secretly snuck up on us!  We'll be posting a quick craft idea for a homemade card and gift in a few days, but in the meanwhile, here are some gift ideas from around the interwebs (disclaimer: we haven't tried these...they just look really interesting!  Make sure to read reviews before you commit!).  Let's hope they have expedited shipping for when we place our order on June 18th.  Don't be like us.  Plan ahead.

  1. I have no idea what I'm getting my father or what my kids are getting my husband. We have done the make your own beer, whiskey stones and the wine of the month club and he loved all of those. Perhaps time to branch out into one of the other categories. :)
