I have no idea what to get DH for Father's Day! Anyone want to help me out? I figure I should get on this soon as if I want to ship something here it could take a few weeks.
My criteria is that the gift be not overly expensive ($50.00 or less), nothing sports related (DH is not all that into sports) but something memorable. I think I'm asking for the impossible! I already bought him a nice watch when DS was born so that idea is out! I wish he golfed; there's so much nice golf stuff out there for Father's Day.
Anyway, ideas anyone? I am hoping for something that will last but when all is said and done if it's something really interesting or cool it doesn't have to be. Online or in store suggestions are welcome.
How about a disc with a file full of baby pictures that he could load onto his work computer (if he has a work computer) to save as a screensaver? Or a CD slideshow set to music of all of the best baby pictures you've taken so far that he could play on your computer or in a dvd player?
Have a professional picture taken of you and baby, frame it in a nice frame, and let him take that to work. Picture People and Sears both offer same day pictures, but Sears charges extra for that.
(Can you see I'm obessed with pictures?? LOL)
I'm not sure what they cost, but there are also digital picture frames out there that allow you to have several pictures rotating in the same frame. (Anyone want to give this to my hubby as a birthday gift idea? )
Does he wear hats? A friend bought her hubby a "World's Best Dad" baseball cap, and put the baby's footprints on the bill.
I just got dh a stainless steel travel mug with Kaycee's picture on it and the words Happy Fathers Day 2007 and the next line Love, Kaycee !! I ordered it this morning and they already shipped it. Let me know if you would like the web address. They also have other things you can personalize with photos !! The mug with shipping was $18
Today I made a photobook on shutterfly.com full of all the pictures I have of just my DH and Kyle together! You can pick a theme, a cover, and add all the captions you want. The one I picked was only 12 dollars! I'm going to get him a few other things too but that's going to be the main gift. I love it!
I might have the perfect idea if you have a lot of pictures of them together- or just of the baby in general- im ordering a book im making with all of the pics I have of my DH and Travis from shutterfly.com
