Men and women are generally different when it comes to gifts. Personally, I love being lavished with boxes (doesn’t matter the size), beautifully wrapped in pretty paper with ribbons and bows. Growing up, instead of presents, my dad requested that we behave. My husband is very economical and thrifty so here’s a bunch of gifts that won’t hurt the budget/bottom line.
I MAKE ADORABLE BABIES T-shirt ($22.50 on Etsy)
This funny “I make adorable babies” shirt is perfect for the dad to be, new dad or any dad. On this slightly slim cut, super soft and hip ringer tee, dad will love wearing this t shirt to the gym, running errands or even to wear in the hospital when the new little ones makes his or her appearance.
We Pick You, Dad ($25 on etsy)
This guitar pick makes a perfect gift for the guitar player or musician in your life or from Daddy’s lil rock star. This design allows for three lines of text on top, a small heart stamp and two lines of text for names on a 23 x 29 mm sterling silver pick. You can personalize it with any lyrics or motivational words of your choice. You can also add names, phrases or message along the edge (fits up to 30 spaces in the upper case block font). All orders come packaged in a gift box and ribbon, ready for gift giving.
