I don't know about you, but I find men impossible to shop for. My husband is insanely picky and knows exactly what he wants and likes (and usually orders things for himself when he wants them). I love that he cares about how he looks and has an opinion about everything... most of the time. When I am dressed for work and walking out the door and Rob says he hates my jacket (double-breasted) or shoes (pointy), I don't love it all that much. At least he notices what I am wearing, I suppose...
This post was intended to be about gift ideas for men generally rather than for Father's Day. However, it seems apropos since Father's Day is June 19th. I'll be playing a round of golf with my husband and my Dad (Dad, no expectations about my golf game, please) and I suspect most Dad's would prefer to do something with their children rather than get something, but that is not always possible. Also, some of these are geared more for "new" Dads (read - I am not going to give my own father a flask, let's be serious) or just for your husband or brother's birthday.
If your dad is into technology and has an iPad or other e-reader, perhaps a snazzy new case? I did a post on iPad cases when I was not-so-patiently awaiting the arrival of my iPad. Some are a bit feminine but most are appropriate for both men and women. Another brand to try is Bobara - the DaVinci case is sleek, classy and functional!
Have a wonderful Father's Day and PLEASE let me know if you have found the perfect gift!
