Can you believe we are only 10 days away from Father’s Day?!?  I love putting the Father’s Day Gift Guide together because it serves not only as a way to find the Best Gifts for Dad but also a birthday wish list for my hubby!  His birthday is just around the corner so there are a few things I know he’d like on here as well.

You’ll notice several types of bags on here today.  I had a sweet reader write and ask for a travel bag so I’ve included several options for her.  I love searching for specific items so never hesitate to email me or leave a comment on a post!  Anything Yeti, a travel bag, cooler bag, cup or traditional cooler is a always a hit.

If you have a gadget guy or a watch lover this is THE gift for him!  I gave one of these watches to my husband for Christmas and he truly loves it.  It connects to an app that allows him to location share with me when he goes on a long run or bike ride.  I love it because there’s no more “Where’s Waldo?”  I know where he is and when he’ll be home.  And after a friend’s health scare, I can also see if he’s stopped for some reason and can check in on him!

Also for the gadget guy is this door bell and night vision camera.  We’ve had a bit of vandalism at our house and my hubby loves getting an alert when there is movement in this dark area of our yard.  We’ve not caught them yet…but will!

If you’re taking a trip this summer that involves a lot of sightseeing, you’ll want to get him a pair of these.  My hubby loves this shoe brand and says they are the most comfortable he owns.

I hope you have a great summer weekend with family and friends.  I love the slower pace of summer!  Don’t forget to check out my recipes in the Make This Weekend section of the website above.  The French Rose Sangria was a hit yesterday and I’ll be making some again soon!

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
