Excited to spoil my man for his first Father’s Day! Kevin is an incredible father, truly. Literally by my side every step of the way. The great, the ugly, the messy. I knew instantly (when I started to get to know him) that he’d be an amazing family man. Kevin has such a compassionate, kind, patient heart. The way he looks at Harlow, plays with her, reads to her — it floods my entire soul with happiness. Whenever he enters the room, Harlow’s eyes are literally sparkling. He’s that guy who will feed her in the middle of the night so I can get some rest — yes, they exist! He has spent hours upon hours rocking our little girl to sleep. I don’t even know how I got so lucky.
I’ve never really talked about it on my blog before, but I don’t have a relationship with my father. He isn’t a positive influence in my life, and to be frank — he never wanted a family, and it showed. Father’s Day was always a bit of a brick on me (and my mom). Seeing the bond between Harlow and Kevin is indescribable. There’s something so magical about that father/daughter relationship. Can’t wait to see all of their adventures to come. I’m also excited to celebrate Kevin from here on out — a happy ending to a previously cold holiday.
To kick of Father’s Day weekend, I wanted to round up 6 of my favorite gifts for my fellow last-minute shoppers. Does anyone else have a hard time buying for guys? Why is it so hard?
FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE
119th U.S. Open Championship
Men and their golf, am I right? I’m all about driving the golf cart though, that’ll never get old. In 2019, the best golfers from around the world will compete for the most coveted U.S. Open Trophy in Pebble Beach, California. Such a fun way to tie the family in, too! Would make a memorable vacation for everyone involved. Tickets start as low as $60 so it’s definitely affordable. (Went on sale yesterday, and going fast!) Pick up tickets here.
MyHeritage DNA test kit
MyHeritage is the leading destination for family history research and DNA testing. These kits are all the rage, and so fascinating. I just gifted my mom one for Mother’s Day and it was a hit! Super easy to do, and you’ll find out DNA matches (with state of the art DNA testing) and ethnicity estimates with a click of a button. Isn’t technology the coolest? Also make sure to snag one before the sale is over — only $59 a box until June 17th. Use code: BABBLEBOXX1 for free shipping here.
Hanes Ultimate Men’s Comfortable Flex Fit Ultra Soft Boxer Briefs & Hanes Ultimate Men’s Comfort Fit White Crewneck Undershirt
Kevin’s a simple guy. He works from home, so he opts for comfort over style (lucky me, ha). I love the undershirts for house lounging (they’re beyond soft) and the boxer briefs features FreshIQ advanced odor protection. It locks away moisture to keep your man feeling cool and dry. Perfect for house work on those hot days, too!
Tie via tie.com
It wouldn’t be Father’s Day without a tie, am I right? ties.com has hundreds of styles to choose from, but I thought the prowling foxes tie would be cute! We have an upcoming wedding in Michigan, so I thought it would be cute! The hand-designed fox print is perfect with a simple button up. Such a cute gift idea for any man in your life.
Grady’s Cold Brew – Bean Bag Cold Brew Kit
With an infant, you run on coffee. Since it’s about to get hot in Chicago, you gotta go cold brew. The ‘pour and store’ pouch makes busy mornings easy, and efficient. Just add water for 36 cups of iced coffee and store in the fridge. It tastes so good, you guys! It’s also the cutest packaging, and a clever gift for fellow coffee-lovers like myself.
