Father's Day is just around the corner, and every year we put together something last minute for my husband, and every year I feel like he's disappointed.
Other years we spend a small amount and DIY a lot.
What the heck should we do?
Well, I spent a lot of time brainstorming.
I thought about what he would love, and what he would use, and I decided to create a fun gift basket of things I thought he would appreciate and love. Most importantly, gifts that were practical.
My husband loves practical gifts. If he can use it, its a great gift.
We never have time to read in this house, but it's always been important to be informed.
We also love reading audiobooks together, because then we can talk about them and enjoy them. Each evening we make dinner together and listen to audiobooks.
Currently, we are reading some suspense books, but now that Game of Thrones has ended, we plan to read those books together too. It should be a nice year-long adventure (because they're like 5,000 pages a piece haha)
Speaking of Game of Thrones, have you seen it? It just wrapped up, so if you want to see it . . . get a free month of HBO and binge watch it. I truly loved watching it. The story is so deep and rich, and there are so many colorful characters, and hilarious and heartwarming situations, as well as gut-wrenching and shockingly horrific.
If you're open to watching it, it's available from HBO right now. Get that free month to stream on Amazon, and you can cancel anytime.
Did you hear that? Watch Game of Thrones for free. See what the fuss is about!
Watching my children diligently finding pieces and helping put together a fun Lego playland is one of my favorite things to do as a mother. I love when they proudly bring me their creation and tell me they made it.
It's a no brainer that we included a set in his gift basket!
5. Manly Soap
Can soap be manly?
I suppose it could try.
This brand has scents like “Victory” and “Naval Supremacy”, and smells like Ocean!
The bar of soap is also huge because it's supposed to be similar to the large bars of soap they gave the military members in WWII. Yay American history!
What is a super successful gift you have given?
