Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Guys can be so hard to shop for! Any time we notice that our guys are into something, we make mental notes for future gifts. Also, if there is something that makes our lives easier as well, it’s a win win! Here are some ideas that we have come up with for this Father’s Day.

PANTS- Something we have to share for this father’s day are the Traveler pants!!! We cannot express enough how much these pants are a game changer in any guy’s wardrobe. These pants are like men’s jeggings! They feel like sweats when they are worn, but are very versatile. They can be worn casual, business casual or with a jacket and tie. They wash and dry super well in the laundry and can handle the roughest of wearers!

TILE- Other Father’s Day goodies include the tile. These are so handy for the guy who can never find his keys. You can program the tile app on your phone and your keys will beep for you. We have come to use our tile multiple times and saved a lot of stress.

RING- If you have a dad in your life who is active and especially works with weights, you might consider getting him a silicone wedding ring. They come in all sorts of colors and are easy on the budget!

PILLOW- We have a family member who just bought this as a birthday gift for her husband. This is great for the guy who is always folding up his pillow to sleep. Side sleepers and back sleepers benefit from the support of these awesome pillows.

SOCKS- These Stance socks are always a big hit in our homes. They are top quality and come in so many styles and colors.

TIES- We really stocked up on ties at the last Beehive Bazaar. There was a great vendor selling some unique and eye catching patterns too good to pass up!

LAPEL PINS- You know how mothers get beautiful corsages on Mother’s Day? Why not do the same for your guy on Father’s Day? We love these wodden flower lapel pins by  Two Guys Bowtie. And these babies won’t die like real flowers so he can wear it over and over again!

A Bit of Green in a “Pinch”

Why is it that on St. Patrick’s Day no one in my family can find a single article of green clothing to wear? Let me tell you, the fear of being pinched is REAL! Years ago I came up with a remedy for our lack of green. It was a day I was under intense pressure to have a solution in very little time. With that being said, this project takes no time at all and has a very adorable end result!

You will need:


  • green felt
  • small white buttons
  • needle & thread
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • hair clips or bobby pins
  • mini safety pins
  • small straight pin
  • clovers template (click here: clovers)


  1. Print clovers template.
  2. Cut out desired sizes of clovers (I used the smaller sizes).
  3. Use a straight pin to attach clover to felt.


4. Cut around clover pattern.

5. Stitch small white button onto clover.


6. For hair clips or bobby pins, use hot glue to affix clover.2


7. For a lapel pin, use the small safety pin to attach to both the clothing and the clover.

My work here is done. You now have pinch insurance. You’re welcome!



Shop Kid’s Easter Clothes Online

Hey Guys! Easter this year is April 16th. I have to say that more than once in my years of parenthood, I have been shopping for Easter clothes in some of my favorite stores and just can’t find what I’m looking for. A lot of times stores skip ahead to summer themes and so many shops just don’t carry boys’ ties and dress clothes. I just recently checked some hot spots online and found multiple sales for PERFECT Easter clothes. I jumped on it so that I’ll have plenty of time for shipping. Here are some great options that I found.

P.S. Such a bonus to shop and support some local art moms like Hum and Freshly Picked!
