10 Gift Ideas For Father’s Day

Is your dad difficult to shop for? Don't worry, I've got you covered. I have put together the best gifts for dad, including some of the best gifts I've ever given my dad. These gifts are fun, practical and come at every price. So, if you are like me and want to get dad something fun instead of whatever boring gift your mom decided you should get him, look no further! (side note - is my mom the only one who does this? For instance, this year she thought I should get my dad a meat thermometer...) 


1. Nice Coffee 2. Headphones 3. Golf Hat 4. Golf Polo 5. Customizable Quarter Zip 6. Superhero Pants 7. Graphic Tee 8. Pajamas 9. Sporting Tickets 10. MoviePass 

1. Blue Mountain coffee is some of the best! It's a big upgrade from Dunkin, and it's sure to be his favorite weekend treat for months.

2. We got my dad headphones a few years ago and he uses them every day. These Bose ones are wireless and fit comfortably inside your ear. I also think this noise canceling pair is great - I tried them on in the airport and couldn't hear any background noise. Finally, this Beats pair is the pair my dad has, and they are under $100!

3. Golf Hat. If your dad likes to golf this hat looks cool and keeps him cool. It's also a thoughtful and practical present that he's sure to wear out.

4. Golf Shirt. I love this striped one, and this Vineyard Vines one is on sale for less than$35 and this ons is less than $50. (vineyard Vines has a number of cute ladies items on sale too...) 

5. Did you know that Vineyard Vines has an MLB and a collegiate shop? You can customize items with your dad's favorite sports teams! They have an oxford (also in gingham), a 1/4 zip, a polo (also in stripe), a fleece shep shirt and a vest.  

6. Superhero pants. If you dad is a kid at heart he'll love this present. I bought my dad Batman pajama pants and he wear them all the time. If your dad also loves the Marvel or D.C. movies I bet he'll love feeling like a kid getting to wear awesome and fun pjs. 

7. Captain America Shirt. My dad loves this shirt. Based on the other males I know who also love Captain America, I think it's a safe bet that it's a gift that will make your dad smile. Also, if your dad loves something other than Marvel movies, Target has a bunch of graphic tee options for less than $13.

8. Some more pajamas. What can I say, there one of the best presents I ever gave my dad! 

9. Sporting tickets. The other best gift I ever got my dad was tickets to see the Celtics together. He still talks about it. I highly recommend tickets as a Father's Day present. You can get them at almost any price, and it's make a memory that you both can cherish. 

10. MoviePass. This is the perfect present for dads who love going to the movies but can't stomach the price this gift is for him. He'll be able to go to the movies every day and see all the blockbusters. There are so many this summer! Or, if your dad likes going to the movies occasionally, a fandango gift card is great too, especially if you go with him. 

Don't forget the card! Bonus points if it's homemade :)


Bridal Party Gift Ideas

Today for wedding tip Tuesday I have put together some bridal party gift ideas. I remember having a hard time coming up with gifts for my matron of honor and flower girl that felt both sweet and personal, while also being an appropriate bridal party gift. Therefore,  I wanted to provide some inspiration to anyone gift shopping this year (or years from now). I hope my gift ideas help you find something special for the women standing by their side on the big day. Plus, I think most of these would make wonderful Mother's Day gifts too.  

Bridal Party Gift Ideas

1. Pajamas - I love these satin Kate Spade pajamas (I also love these for less than $35). hey are so pretty for spring, and everyone would look darling posing in them for the getting-ready photos. Plus, your bridesmaids can wear them for years to come and think of the great times you all had together. 

also love this nightgown for the flower girl. Aren’t the sleeping bunnies adorable? Your flower girl will be wrapped in bunny beauty sleep before the big day, what could be better?!

2. Cozy robes - I really like this cozy spa robe (I have it and love it), this fancy satin one, and this pink girls robe. A nice robe is a great gift because it’s little something extra that all of the bridesmaids, and flower girl, can enjoy on the morning of the wedding and for years to come after. You can also have them monogrammed for that little something extra. 

3. Jewelry - Basically, you can never go wrong with jewelry! It's a nice way to say thank you for all the work and support they gave you to prepare for my big day. f you pick a silver piece, having the item engraved would be a wonderful touch as well. Things Remembered has a number of pieces and does engraving, I love this bracelet

4. S’Well bottles - Aren’t these Liberty print S’Well bottles the prettiest? I think a nice water bottle is a great gift since it is something that will be used constantly after your wedding, and since S’Well bottles are on the more expensive side it’s a treat that your bridesmaid wouldn’t buy herself. 

5. lower Girl Doll - I bought this doll for my flower girl and it was a big hit. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the doll’s sash comes embroidered with your flower girl’s name. The site often puts items on sale too (I got my doll 20% off).

6. Flower Girl Book - I love this customized flower girl book! It’s such a sweet memento. In addition, if you give it to her before the wedding it will help her understand her role a bit better so she isn’t confused or scared when so many people are staring at her the day of. 

s anyone getting married, or in a wedding, anytime soon? Or if your already married what did you get your bridal party? I’d love to hear!
