A Few of my Favorite Things: Father’s Day Edition

Father’s Day is coming up on June 21st. I don’t know about you, but I find shopping for my dad to be incredibly difficult. My dad’s Father’s Day gift isn’t on this list, wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise, but here are some ideas for the dads in your life.


This card is so cute. I love the colors and the sentiment.


This mug would be great for chemistry lovers or fans of Breaking Bad.


My dad and I like to get together for an after work walk followed by a cocktail. I can see us chatting over drinks in these customized glasses.


I also love getting together with my dad and barbecuing in the summer months. These custom barbecue tools would be a perfect addition to a summer cookout.


My brother-in-law/nephew’s father is a huge Star Wars fan. I can see him loving this Darth Vader mug.


One of the things my dad and I share is a love for playing music. In fact, the first guitar I ever played was his. This guitar pick keychain would be perfect for other musical dads.


This desk organizer is a great gift for working dads. I love the natural wood, and I think any dad would love to have this on his desk as a reminder of how much his kids love him.


My dad is one of the biggest cat lovers I know. I think this card would make him smile.

I hope these ideas helped inspire your Father’s Day gift. Do you have any Father’s Day plans or traditions?

A Few of my Favorite Things, Etsy Round-up – #2

Here’s another round of my favorite things from Etsy. I’m loving the pink/mint/gold/white color theme, as you’ll see in my picks for this month.

Siamese Salt ShakerI collect quirky salt and pepper shakers. These little siamese kitty cuties would make a perfect addition to my collection.

Wooden BeadsI love the colors and polka dots on this cute painted wooden bead necklace. I keep wanting to try a DIY of this myself, but I don’t know if anything I make would be as cute as the ones I’ve seen on Etsy. Everything from the MODFRESH shop is so adorable, I want it all!

Elephant Tee

Elephants are my favorite animal. This elephant tee is so cute and cozy, I can totally see myself wearing this.

Triangle Print

This triangle print download is so adorable. It would go great with some other prints I have my eye on at the moment. There may be a gallery wall in the works.
