It’s been a crazy couple weeks around here prepping for summer and winding down Delilah’s pre-school days with a whole lotta end of the year celebrations. Delilah has her summer kick off party on Friday and is excited to take part in the carnival games, face paint, snow ball station and jumpy jumps that her school has graciously put together for the kiddos. Not only is she excited for Friday, she has also been preparing several handmade treasures for Father’s Day, i.e. about 10 Cinderella and Ariel pictures that she has colored ever so carefully in the lines. She has her special gifts colored, painted and wrapped up with a pretty bow ready and waiting to give to dad over breakfast, that’s if she can hold out that long.
This year we have decided to hang around the house, have a few drinks and let the babies play in the backyard while we grill and relax. We may throw in a couple hours at the neighborhood pool; however, the hubby has requested a home day after a round of golf and I am more than okay with that laid back plan. I have high hopes of marinading some chicken in a tasty pineapple barbecue concoction that I just saw on pinterest and my mouth is already watering. Why is summer food just so much better?! I can not wait to serve this sweet and and tangy dish to the hubby with a few drinks to celebrate his awesomeness. Hoping Delilah is a fan but if not, Sawyer will help himself to his sisters plate, he’s a human vacuum!
While the hubby is a big golfer he has many other interests that have inspired our picks for this upcoming Father’s Day. If you’re looking for a special gift for the hubby or for your dad you can shop our favorites below. We hope everyone has the best weekend thanking the men in our life for all that they do. The mom grind would not be the same without them, am I right? Happy Father’s Day!
…Father’s Day Favorites…
one//the mother of all Fitbits will surely make for a happy Dad this Father’s Day. The Fitbit Blaze is a sophisticated smart fitness watch that will measure heart rate, connect to GPS, display on-screen workouts and much more. Keep Dad healthy and on his toes with this masculine design that boasts multi-sport modes, smartphone notifications, auto sleep tracking, workout summaries and the list goes on. We love the oversized square face and long battery life of this accurate device.
two//nothing says special like a sharp pair of personalized cufflinks. We love the bold blue hue for summer occasions.
three//treat dad to a luxurious shave set this Father’s Day. Set includes shave cream or foaming gel along with a Truman Razor with storm grey handle, razor stand, 3 German engineered blade cartridges and travel blade cover. Make it more personal with an engraved razor stand!
four//not only is this camo golf polo a beauty, it is also equipped with 30+ UPF to protects Dad’s skin from the summer sun while on the green. The Threadborne fabric keeps you cool and comfortable with 4-way stretch fabrication for greater mobility in any direction. Anti-odor technology prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes making this polo durable and practical while driving down the fairway in high temps. The hubby raves about the Threadborne fabric, he loves the texture of this polo and the flexibility it gives during his golf game. That camo tho!
five//we adore Patagonia especially in trucker form. Love the mesh backing for breathability during the summer heat. Organic cotton canvas headband and adjustable snap closure for the win!
six//the hubby is a huge golf lover and these pants are his favorite when on the course, especially in the summer heat. The Threadborn fabric is super comfortable and keeps him cool in the hot summer sun. Microthread technology in the fabric dries faster preventing clinging and chafing while the moisture transport system whips sweat and dries super fast. These babies also have an internal pocket to hold a cell phone while swinging steady on the course.
seven//a stylish running shoe that will give dad maximum durability, traction, comfort and breathability. The style of these sneaks double as a hot accessory while dad is not at the gym. All about the grey hues as of late.
eight//the hubby wears these sandals just about everyday. They are supper comfy and can be paired with a swim suit to the pool or dressed up for happy hour or date night. He loves that the sole includes a bottle opener for lazy summer nights.
nine//start dad’s day off right with Khiel’s travel skincare kit. This kit is the perfect size for dad’s medicine cabinet or gym bag. Kit includes ultimate man body scrub soap, facial fuel energizing moisture treatment, ultimate brushless shave cream, facial fuel energizing face wash and ultimate strength hand salve.
ten// hands down the most practical portable cooler! Perfect for dad to take the kiddos to the pool or to have a guys day tailgating, golfing or fishing! The hopper is functional, leakproof, durable and makes for packing cold drinks and food a breeze!
eleven//these bold sunnies add some fun and protection with their oversized square shape, bold blue lenses and UV protection. We love the mirrored coating, a highly reflective layer to deflect light from Dad’s eyes.
twelve//a stainless steel multitool that includes 13 tools to keep dad prepared for just about any adventure. The Victorinox Climber boasts two knives, small and large flat blade screwdrivers, reamer/punch, wire stripper and scissors, tweezers, toothpick, corkscrew, can opener, cap lifter and multipurpose hook.
