Father’s Day. It rolls around every year but I still never know what to gift Dad (or my husband!). Then, I put it off and end up scrambling at the last minute for something special and unique. Sound familiar??! I’m sure you do it too!

Men are just so hard to shop for! Once in awhile my hubby will say “oh that is really cool” or “I need something like that” so I catalogue it in my mind… excited that I am ahead of the game and know exactly what he wants! Then, the next day, he will come home from the store with the item already bought! This drives me crazy!!! Do us women ever do things like that??? Never!!! I make it soooo easy for him! All I need to do is walk through a mall and I can point out at least 50 things I like!!!
Anyhow, I started doing some research this year to get ideas and was surprised by how many great options there actually are. Here, I have compiled a whole bunch of different articles from other awesome bloggers all about father’s day stuff. From homemade and store bought cards and gifts, to DIY’s and crafts you can do with your kids for Dad (or by themselves if you trust them!). I even included recipe roundups for the perfect father’s day brunch or BBQ. You will find something to make your Dad feel truly special! And if not…he buys too much crap!

For the BBQing Dad, this Himalayan Salt slab adds a lot of flavor to your veggies and meats. This one (through amazon) even comes with a cookbook so you know how to use it. We leave ours on the BBQ and I usually throw smaller veggies on it so they don’t get burned or fall through the grates.
