I've gotten Father's Day gifts all squared away for Lee and my dad but cannot think of anything for my FIL. And Lee is no help, he suggested one of those pens where you can switch ink colors.

Lee has shot down all of my suggestions (shaving gel warmer, car detail kit) so now I need to get something ASAP so I can mail it in time to arrive for Father's Day. Help!

Hmm I was going to say a gift card to... could be to a favorite restaurant, coffee place, or even a home hardware store (if he does that stuff?). Does he do cooking or BBQ stuff?? Could get him things for that. Knives, special sauces, brushes, or something.

Do you like him? I'd say, its Lee's dad... get him the ink pen... unless he'll feel it reflects on you and you care.

HAHA! I love his dad, he is an awesome FIL so I definitely want to get him something thoughtful. A gc IS a good idea, especially given how little time I have, but I was seriously ingrained since childhood that you never, never give a giftcard. Uuuuugh, haha.

I made my Dad and FIL little mini bragbooks about our family, so I went totally crafty.
