A Father’s Day Gift Guide – practical gift ideas for the men in your life
I need to give a huge thank you to McKenna Olson of McKenna Rachelle Photography. She is an amazing local photographer here in Idaho who went above and beyond to get some sweet shots of our little family, and I will forever treasure these pictures! If you’re in the Idaho area, please make sure to check her out, and keep an eye out for more from the wonderful McKenna in the coming weeks!
Wood Watch watch c/o JORD (affiliate links)
The natural zebra wood is gorgeous, even more so in person than in pictures, and is so unique looking, but not in an “in your face” kind of way. It somehow looks great with whatever he is wearing – whether its a business suit or jeans and a tee. JORD’s wood watches come in a variety of men’s styles and colors, so the father in your life is sure to find one that suits his needs!

Papa Bear Tee c/o The Oyster’s Pearl
First of all, can we address how adorable my two dudes are? Obviously, I have always found my husband attractive, but there’s something about watching he and H together that just magnifies it tenfold. The man is a wonderful father to our little cub, and it shows in how much love H has for his papa bear. This original “Papa Bear” tee from The Oyster’s Pearl is a work of love that was hand-lettered and hand screen printed by Emily and Brad, the creative husband and wife duo.
The Oyster’s Pearl were the original creators of this typographic design and chose the perfect, super soft shirt to show it off. While this was intended to be a Father’s Day gift, the Hubs got into it early and decided he’d rather not wait to start wearing it. It has quickly and easily become one of the most worn tees in the Hubs’ closet because of how comfortable it is, and H loves when he wears it because he gets to point at the bear all day and growl. So, not only is it husband (and wife!) approved, but it’s also animal-loving toddler approved as well (and I have a feeling this Papa Bear tee will be seen in a lot of our family photos coming up)!
Brittany is one of my favorite people ever (don’t believe me? See my post all about her BStamped Jewelry here). She has the most amazing house that she and her family are renovating to fit their style, and its straight Pinterest inspiration for the dream home my husband and I hope to build one day. Along with being just a pretty awesome person, she makes my favorite customized jewelry and gifts.
While I was scrolling her website a few nights ago to get ideas for a gift, my husband spotted her Custom Stamped Money Clip and then fell down the BStamped rabbit hole of awesomeness. All of her pieces are handmade to your exact wishes, so you can request a sweet message to your someone special, or be as tongue-in-cheek as you wish. While the Hubs was first drawn to the money clip, he quickly found the Custom Stamped Tie Bar and it was like flies to honey. Two years ago for Father’s Day, I bought him an eclectic collection of vintage tie clips from a local Estate Sale shop, and he wears them almost daily, so BStamped’s custom version is a no brainer. He’s also pretty well known in his office for kicking some major “putt” on the golf course, and has a tendency to win most golf tournaments that he enters. This cheeky little reminder would be an awesome little addition to his golf bag!
Classic Watch c/o Daniel Wellington
He ended up choosing the Classic St Mawes Silver 40mm Watch and it is the epitome of class. He likes that the 40mm watch is such a slim timepiece (only a 6mm case thickness!), which means that he doesn’t have to worry about it catching on cabinets, or getting in the way when he’s playing guitar or playing catch with H. One of the really awesome things about Daniel Wellington’s watches are that they have interchangeable straps, so it’s really easy to switch up the look from work week business professional to weekend casual. Because of a special promotion that Daniel Wellington is doing right now, I also got him the Classic Glasgow watch strap so he can do just that! The Glasgow is perfect for the summer, especially for a more nautical look, but the beautiful medium brown leather strap that comes with the Classic St Mawes looks handsome year round.
From now until July 15th, Daniel Wellington Watches is graciously giving readers of MMD special savings! Save 15% with code SHYNNZ until July 15th, 2016!
And don’t forget to order by June 13th to take advantage of their complimentary strap promotion as well!
