father’s day finds

This Sunday we celebrate our well-deserved dads who love, protect and cherish their broods every day.  It certainly can’t be an easy job being a super hero!  In case you’re still trying to decide what to buy or where to go, I made a little inspiration board with gift ideas and family friendly things to do.  Everything from fun to fancy.  Enjoy!!

 

1.  Fashion freak:  you can’t go wrong with a military inspired JCrew Timex.   At $150, it’s a little bit of an investment, but such a timeless piece – no pun intended.  I especially like that right now JCrew’s interchangeable bands are on sale for $15!!  Watch is here.  Bands are all here.

2.  Coffee connoisseur: what dad wouldn’t love a shiny new coffee maker poised on the kitchen countertop?  Little ones can make a card and present Dad with his hot cup of coffee and newspaper at bedside on Sunday morning! We bought this exact coffee maker a few months ago and it’s like pouring a cup of happiness every morning.  No mess, no filters. Plus it’s so easy for everyone to pour a cup of their own flavor with no fuss.  You can find it here.

3. Clever camper: fill a back pack full of Dad’s favorite treats and surprise him with a family hike or nature walk at your nearby park.  If you’re feeling extra dedicated, a planned camping trip would surely be a bonus!  This nifty new napsack, is a great look and affordable price!

4.  Playful Pop: they say the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.  Have a few laughs and get Dad a racey red remote control chopper.  I have yet to meet a man who can say no to playing with anything with a remote.  I found a bad to the bone helicopter over here and the cute red one right here.

5.  Dessert Lovin’ Daddy: this raw berry pie with coconut and almond crust is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.  The recipe is wholesome, organic and tempting.  My husband is a sucker for any dessert with berries and I’d love to try and make this!  The lovely photo and recipe came from one of my new favorite food blogs right here.

    The back pack of surprises and a hike is a wonderful idea. A trek along the Pacific by Stinson Beach will make for a special day.
