What are you getting your dad for Father's Day?

Father's Day is just around the corner and I need help thinking of a gift! 

I could do something wedding related, like a framed photo of us from the wedding:

And I could get him the Loudon Wainwright CD with the song "Daughter" that we danced to at my wedding:

But I also feel like I need something else from both me and Dave. Plus, I have a Father-in-Law to buy for as well...Any ideas?

Dads are so hard! I think we're throwing a BBQ and inviting our families, along with a nice card.

My Dad has passed on, but I have been thinking about the occasion a lot because I want to honor my husband and HIS Dad. I think that, even though my husband is kind of a burly Manly Man, that he really needs pampering. So I plan to give him a home spa treatment (which is a non-threatening foot soak and massage). and I'm going to make him a buckwheat pillow for covering his eyes. He works hard all day and likes to lay down for 30 minutes when he comes home. For my Father in Law, it's tougher because I don't know him on the same level. I think my daughter and I will work on an art project together for him, and also write him a silly poem telling him how much we love him....

I gave my dad a vintage record of the song we danced to at my wedding and then framed it with a picture of us dancing....he loved's up in the basement! As for my dad...he is hard to buy for!


About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
