It’s almost time for Father’s Day, ladies — what are you getting for your guys? Some of the things I’ve gotten my husband in the past:
Keychain with baby’s footprints. I worked with Etsy seller Surfing Silver to get keychains for my husband after both of our boys were born — using just the scanned image we had of the footprints from the hospital. Their initials and birthdates are on the other side. The keychains came out wonderfully (really, great; no complaints), and my husband seemed really happy with them. You can also get pendants, guitar picks, and more — and the seller can turn drawings, handwriting, and more into keepsakes.
These barely even count as presents because I enjoy these things too, but: if your husband happens to be a sci-fi geek like mine is, there are so many cute things you can get. (I am still (kinda) kicking myself for not buying the Toaster onesie that Glarkware used to sell — back when we started dating I actually considered it! Cart, horse, etc.) Pictured above: Star Trek onesie from ThinkGeek; Star Wars shirt from Busted Tees; Battlestar Gallactica shirt from Amazon.
What are some favorite Fathers’ Day gifts from years past? Do you draw a big divide between what you get your husband personally, versus what your kids “get” him? Do you recognize grandparents on the day (as grandparents, or just as parents)?
