It’s all about you, Daddy-o!

For those of you who remember my Mother’s Day mop confession, I’d love to tell you that I have been aces when I comes to Father’s Day.  Well, not so.  When it comes to Father’s Day, I struggle every year.  My dad has always been the type to desire very little, but buy himself anything he desires.  That leaves very few ideas for the rest of us.  (New socks again, Dad?)  My husband continually says “good kids” when he’s asked what he wants.  (Guaranteed good behavior from a 15 month old can’t be bought, not even with animal crackers and a new toy.)  So, I’m continually trying to come up with this year’s bright idea.  Thanks to Etsy and Pinterest, things are looking up.

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing AstroDads out there!

Hand stamped guitar pick for the dad who literally rocks from Sweetheartcircle on Etsy.

Vader Dad card for the dad who knows how to use the force from shawnax on Etsy.  This one from witandwhistle on Etsy is pretty great too.
Need an idea for your Taurus dad?  This Bull catchall from Red Envelope is perfect.
Looking to do something more hands on and personal?  The photo collage tutorial on Positively Splendid is a winner.
