Don’t freak out, there’s still time to get dad something totally awesome for Father’s Day this Sunday!
Unlike moms who love everything, dads are so hard to shop for! So I’ve done a little digging and thought I’d share some of your best bets.
To be on the safe side stick with the holy trinity - food, sports and technology.
Food (also including booze): Nothing says “love you dad” like a nummy steak dinner, take him out to a nice meal or sign him up for some alcohol of the month club. Or if he loves Adam Carolla (a regular on Bill Oreilly) you can order him a bottle of super-manly Mangria. It’s always fun to try out new booze and everyone loves getting stuff in the mail.
Sports: If you can swing it, two tickets to see his favorite sports team is a double whammy of awesome. Not only will he love it, but it will serve as a great memory you two can share. If tickets aren’t in season, give him a rain check along with a useful sports memorabilia item like a frozen mug with his team’s logo.
Technology: Easy-peasy, just determine if he’s a Mac or a PC and go forth and conquer. Gadgets are always being upgraded so even if he already has an iPad, you know he secretly wants the newest one on the market (don’t we all?).
If all else fails and you procrastinate too much a gift card will suffice, maybe to Home Depot or Best Buy or his favorite restaurant. But at the VERY least put some thought into the card. There are literally hundreds of options out there and many of them are “hip with the times” in displaying beloved TV show characters, movies and musicians. So get one that you know was made for your dad and write a little personal note inside.
My dad’s a huge Star Wars fan so I’m thinking something in the Darth genre this year. Just keep in mind, no matter what you get your dad as long as it’s from the heart it’ll be a winner. Happy Father’s Day everyone!
My birthday happened to fall over Memorial Day weekend and that could only result in one thing: I’M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!
Since we never Disney without an agenda, check out all the super awesome things I did last weekend in this illustrated itinerary:
To start we stayed at the Art of Animation hotel, in the Finding Nemo building and I got to sleep in a Nemo bed, shut UP! It was the most fun hotel with tons of sketches and paintings everywhere.
I always have a bucket list when I go to Disney, and every trip the absolute MUSTS are: Country Bear Jamboree and a Mickey shaped waffle… Great success.
We also went to Universal Studios where I geeked out over all the comic book heros and had a borderline religious experience at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Can I have butter beer every day please?
The absolute BEST part was that it was Star Wars weekend at Hollywood Studios, and I am unashamed to admit I let my fangirl freak flag fly the whole time (and also turned into stalkerazzi as shown below, ps we have a Vine account now!).
It was a fantastic trip and the best way possible to kick off 25. I can’t wait to go back!
Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a safe & fun Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is the “official” start of summer (even though in some areas it’s felt like summer since March!) with pools and beaches opening, cookouts, and white jeans finally making an appearance. I feel like the fashion rule of not wearing white jeans between Labor Day & Memorial Day is a bit out dated, I for one wear (off) white jeans pretty much all year round. Any and everything goes with white, and I LOVE that bright colors are trending for the summer. You can pair them together or wear them with your favorite white jeans (or shoes, bag, hat, etc) and look great either way.
