Blog Family Father's Day Love Thank You

Does anybody else have the hardest time picking the perfect gift for their dad for Father’s Day? We would love to give you a list of the best gifts to give your dad this year, but we can’t even figure it out for our own dad. We can all struggle together. We know that we will give our dads our time and love this year. We invite you to do the same!



Dad, thank you.

  • Thank you for all the things I see and don’t see.
  • Thank you for the silly faces to make me smile.
  • Thank you for nacho night in front of the TV and ice cream, even if mom said no.
  • Thank you for acting surprised every time I gave you tools as a gift, I still have the hardest time choosing the perfect one.
  • Thank you for driving me to 6 am practices and being the loudest to cheer at the games.
  • Thank you for teaching me that I make a better door than I do a window, especially when standing in front of the television.
