It’s daddy’s turn now!
Every year, we struggle with the same question: “What should we get for dad this year?” Personally, I know I do. With three other women in my household, one always beats you to either his favorite cologne or favorite polo t-shirt or blouse.
So, what might you get him then? Well, don’t fret. Below is a list of gift ideas (if a family member hasn’t already beat you to it):
1. Take your father out to brunch or dinner; they love to be “wined and dined” too!

2. Celebrate Dad with a fun toy: the iPad or iPad mini from the Apple Store.

Make Dad’s day with a game of catch, then eat the baseballs afterwards! Sounds like a win-win.
To all you lucky father’s out there, this day is all about you; so put down the tool box where your wife has kindly nagged you to fix the little nooks around the house and enjoy it! Don’t worry, it can be postponed until next weekend!
