What's that you say; you haven't a gift for dad? I know that feeling. You told yourself last year that you wouldn't forget and put it off till the last moment. Yet, here it is June and still you haven't come up with anything. And as the days, hours and minutes tick by, it only gets worse. Anxiety creeps in, your nerves get frayed and before you know it your snapping at the kids. It gets to the point that you start making excuses to ease the guilt that you are feeling; because lets face it, you have had a whole year. And to make matters worse, he surprised you with that fabulous gift, the one that left you all emotional.
Okay...you forgot....you haven't had the time....whatever.
You are here now on the internet. What better place? Let's go shopping!
If you haven't a credit card or if your bank account is low, may I suggest heading on over to Martha Stewart's web site and grab a few ideas, maybe download a template or two and make dad something he would love. She has templates and clip art you can download to make great cards and labels. She has recipes and sewing idea galore, and that which you haven't already in the house (which can be repurposed), you can pick up at your grocer's when you go to shop for the big day meal. Just type "father's day" into her search bar, located at the top left hand corner of her front page....or click on the photo here. This is just one of the many great crafty gift ideas at Martha Stewart.com
Now, if you have a credit card and you are into internet shopping, may I suggest the items below.
For the man who loves chocolate and bacon, or chocolate with bacon. I suggest you head on over to Vosges' for some truly fabulous gourmet delights. Their delectable delights were featured on the Food Network. Also, more importantly, they can be delivered next day. They will be there in time for Father's Day.
How about Lobster! Does the man of the house love lobster? Catch a Piece of Maine takes phone order and ships overnight, and the shipping is included in the price. They sell live whole lobsters. How fun would that be; for dad to open live lobsters for Father's Day? You can also purchase whole meals with all the fixings. They even have clubs and shares in the business for sale. Best of all, it's fresh and shipped overnight!
How about something for the tech inspired dad?
You can shop Amazon and find great tech stuff that can be shipped next day, Saturday and even overnight.
Logitech Revue w/ Google TV
All these are sure to be a hit with dad; making him feel like he's the king of his castle.
Thanks for stopping by
Have a beautiful day
