It’s okay, you can admit it: You have no idea what to give him for Father’s Day. You’re done with the typical gifts. And you figure he can already buy what he wants or needs himself. But you’re still stumped: What do you get the dads in your life who more than deserves this day?

My husband more than deserves a wonderful Father’s Day. I seriously could not imagine doing this parenting thing without him by my side.

    I had a great idea for my husband for Father’s Day, but I forgot it as soon as i read this post! LOL!! My man could really use a new toiletries bag. He’s been using his current one since high school.

    1. Haha Rabia… thanks? And oh man, that’s hard core if he’s still using the same one from high school. I think I’m going to find myself in the same shoes with my makeup bag. Had that thing forever, and I can’t even say it’s because it’s good quality.

  2. I love Etsy!! And I LOVE The Jedi shirts!!! My husband has totally passed down his love of Star Wars to our babies. πŸ™‚
    Great collection, Nina.

    1. Aren’t they cute? I specifically picked that one out because my husband is big on Star Wars as well!

  3. Why is it guys are so hard to buy for?! I think I’m covered this year, but that Jedi set would be adorable…

    1. Seems like the crowd favorite πŸ™‚

  4. Tarana Khan says:

    These are such great ideas, especially the cupcake toppers! And you’re right, I usually don’t know what to get him πŸ™‚

    1. I love fondant anything, whether for cupcakes or cakes πŸ™‚ Easy way to dress up a dessert!

  5. It’s true. I have no idea! I was thinking of giving him a whole weekend of fun and relaxation like he did for me.. but those Jedi things work for me. Anything Jedi, really!

    1. Jedi stuff seems to work for most dads πŸ™‚

  6. lisacng @ says:

    I have no idea what to get him for Father’s Day but he does love the personalized manly stuff. I think I’ll browse etsy or Think Geek :).

    1. Ooh gotta check out Think Geek!

  7. That apron! My guy is the official BBQ king and needs that to finish off his summer ensemble πŸ™‚

    1. Isn’t that apron perfect on a man? Love it.

  8. The walnut cutting board is beautiful. It’s a great gift for my hard-to-shop-for son in law. Thanks for the idea!

    1. Glad I could help Ellen!

  9. I got my husband whisky rocks and some whisky to go with it last year. He could have cared less about the rocks, but he loved the whisky! =) This year I’m thinking I’m going to frame a print he bought for himself and make some BBQ sauce with my son to give to him.

    1. Can’t go wrong with liquor πŸ˜‰ And I love both your gift ideas Sarah!

  10. Betsy at Parenting is Funny says:

    The apron is pretty. He has a similar one already, but green. This year he wants a teeny tiny screw driver set so he can fix small things that break like my girls’ jewelry, or sunglasses when the screw falls out. My practical man!

    1. Aw what a sweetheart! Those tiny screwdrivers are awesome for eyeglasses!

  11. maryanne @ mama smiles says:

    I LOVE the Jedi Master and Jedi in Training matching shirts!

    1. I thought you would, MaryAnne! πŸ˜‰
