No matter the time of year, it just always seems like it’s hard to find special gifts for dad! I mean, my hubby (aka: our kids’ dad) always seems to get himself whatever he wants whenever he wants it (within reason, of course. There’s no bass boat or shiny red sports car at our house…).
Anyway, the end result is, we’re all stumped at Christmas, or Father’s Day, or Valentine’s Day, or his birthday…
I have to tell you it was tons of fun perusing the Amazon offerings this time of year, to see what we could find. Although some of the ideas below were things that would fit right in in the man-cave, others the whole family would enjoy, too! (Special note to my crew: I SO would “not mind” that cooler, either!)
