dad's day. [ a giveaway! ]

Over the years I have TRIED to give Ryan something sentimetal from the kids for Father's Day. Ryan loves pictures, and his office at work is full of pictures of our family! One of the first Father's Day presents was a picture cube that still sits on his desk...



(that's baby Caleb!)

A couple of years ago I took 5" x 7" pictures our our 3 kids (Eden wasn't born yet) each holding up a sign that they had made themselves spelling out "I heart Dad!" Then before I framed them the kids each wrote their name on the white matte- would also be neat to have them write a little note to Dad there!



Last year the individual picture thing was NOT working- Eden refused to hold up a sign long enough for me to snap a picture! Thankfully I had recently taken a picture of the kids with Ryan, and this time had the older 3 kids write a note on the white matte... (picture is an 8" x 10")



Ryan has these pictures up on a wall in his office :)



**********

We had a mother's day giveaway, so let's do one for Dad!

(We don't want him to feel left out, right? And if you win and decide to keep it, we promise not to tell.)

Let's giveaway a few $50 gift certificates to our website!

Simply tell us what you are getting your Dad or hubbie for Father's Day on sunday to enter.

Blog, tweet it (@thevintagepearl), facebook the contest for extra entries.

Hope all of the Dads have a fabulous Father's Day!

I'll be making my Husband a blanket from my little boy (2) and unborn boy! I am looking to get some photos printed on fabric for it, but I'm running out of time, so this year it might be plain!

Kodi said...

I actually bought your leather cuff for my husband. It's his first father's day and I wanted it to be something he could keep forever. I was so excited that I gave it to him early and he loves it!

Shari said...

As much as I want to get my dad a sentimental gift for Father's day he voiced that he did not need or want anything. So, My only bro and only sis has decided to get the air conditioner fix on his Rav4 that he and mom uses when they are in thier vacation home if Florida. *shrug* He will appreciate that!

Rebecca said...

We had a RARE snowfall in February and I took a beautiful pic of my husband with our 2 kids. I had it stretched on canvas for him. I can't wait to show him, I know he will love it!!!!

Melissa said...

Probably a drill, definitely BBQ. He doesn't want anything but BBQ from this place in the town we used to live in, but he needs a drill (so he can build us more stuff!.

Ashley said...

Is it bad that I haven't even thought about Father's Day yet. My dad and husband might be a little sad if I don't go shopping today!

Erica said...

We are giving him a new pair of sunglasses(what he asked for).

I'm making my dad a holder for his GPS (it's what he wanted, since his gps' screen keeps getting scratched!) He asked for it to be "handmade"... so I have a little challenge ahead of me!

nutmeg said...

Dad's getting a outdoor chaise lounger from our little baby boy this year. It's his first Father's Day, and he doesn't relax nearly enough!

The Elwells' Weekly said...

I put a basket together for my hubby with a few different things I know he loves like drinks and snacks. I also made a t-shirt for my daughter that says I <3 my daddy's tattoos!

Mommy of 3 said...

I bought your awesome keychain to commemorate my husband's first father's day as a dad of three, and then we ordered him an official Blackhawks jersey (I guess that gives away where I'm from, right? :) We're celebrating today since he's a firefighter and works the next two days, but we're also bringing up dinner/desserts for his whole station (all fathers) on Sunday with the other wives/kids. :)

I'm interviewing my three kids (ages 4, 3 1/2, 3) and asking them what are their three favorite things about Daddy. After I write their responses in booklet fashion, they are going to illustrate their pages.
And I'm printing our favorite picture of all three kids for his office...

Bethany said...

My Dad likes to keep things low-key, so we'll be heading over to his place with the kiddos for a BBQ on Sunday. For my husband, I have put together a photo collage of our kids and him playing. I think everyone will be happy this year.

Rebecca said...

Those pictures are cute! We do pictures for his office too! This year we are also giving him the Toy Story Mania Wii game. We loved playing it at Disney World 2 months ago and we have a little one obsessed with Buzz.

Bethany said...

A day off

A 6 pk of Heinekin (spelled that wrong... sorry... haven't been drinking it myself this AM! LOL)

A night in the hot tub

A neck rub if he's a good boy. :)

Jamie said...

I'm giving my husband a morning of golfing and sleeping in. I'm also going to surprise him with a photo of he and the triplets that I took a month ago (I never showed him it and I think he forgot) ;)

Melissa G. said...

Our Father's Day this year will be overshadowed by my precious mama being in the hospital. We just found out yesterday that she has ovarian cancer. So our family is hurting right now but i still want to do something special for the dad's in our family on Sunday. I'm not sure what yet.

Jill said...

My kids are 17 & 22 - I'm leaving it to them to get THEIR dad a gift - not sure what they will come up with!!! I'm sending my dad Amazon money for the Sony reader he has!!!
Thanks!

My own Father passed away 3 years ago, so Father's Day is always bittersweet...missing my Dad, but celebrating my husband as a Dad! This year he requested to sleep as loooooooong as he wanted to on Father's Day :0) Thanks for the opportunity!

shana said...

i really need to get on the ball and figure out something for my dad, but for my husband (dad to our 6 kiddos!) we got a old school shaving kit, with shaving soap and the brush and the whole works (well, minus the straight edge razor blade . . . we'll keep the modern technology on that one).
Thanks,
Shana

Kellie said...

Manon A said...

We went to Patagonia, and got him a shirt. The kids picked out a wallet, and pooled their money for a starbucks card.

Kristy said...

My mom and I are taking our hubbies and all the kiddos to Bass Pro Shop for lunch and shopping...besides cards and little gifts at home.

Shelby said...

We're giving him a Brewers polo. He loves the Brewers and has to wear polos to work....plus he made a rather large hint that he wanted it. I hope he likes it.

Rachel said...

i'm sending a card telling him how terribly i wish i could be there not stuck hundreds of miles away without him.

Nina said...

This is my husband's first year as a Father. Our little girl will be just 16 days old! We got him a collage picture of some of her pictures.

I really hope we win this!! I've entered almost every contest you've had with hopes to win!!

Shana said...

I am having my two boys (4 @ 20 months) tell me what they love about their Daddy so we can put it together in a "book" with scribblings from each of them. Boring, but hopefully it's the thought that counts?

Aniston said...

We got dad a canvas print of a family picture we took in front of a statue of the Blessed Mother. It is such a beautiful picture and so sentimental. I think he will love it!

Shana said...

I took pictures from the past year and created a collage for him and put it in a frame. Then my son picked out a soccer t-shirt to give him since his Dad was his soccer coach this Spring! Can't wait to show him!!!

kristia said...

wooden hangers! :) hahahaha
my husband is so very practical and selfless (to a fault at times) but he loves wooden hangers for his clothes .therefore, since he has two different wardrobes for two different jobs, we don't have enough. So....the kids and I are getting him wooden hangers. Crazy to me, but he will LOVE them! :) he's so funny, but i love him so!

Letsmakeitours said...

All he wants is itunes gift cards, so that is what he is getting along with some homemade crafts from our daughter. He would really love an ipad, but it isn't in the budget this year :)

The Tesdalls said...

Me and my siblings got my dad an ipad for father's day and his birthday (his 60th birthday is on the 27th). He is going to be SO excited!!!
My son and I got my husband a french cuff dress shirt and some new cuff links

We are getting my husband the new "magic mouse" from the apple store. That is something he has been asking for.
Since I live so far away from my dad, I talked to my uncle and he is going to fly my dad in his helicopter around the Wasatch Mountains. My dad will love that present. I wish I could be there to see his reaction.

Dena said...

This year is all about pictures! I had an 11x14 canvas printed, I made a photo book for him, and had an 8x10 collage of pictures printed for his desk at work.

I got my dad a new bowling ball bag..not very sentimental but his is about 20 years old so it's very practical!

:o)

Bridget said...

I guess that is what I will be doing today...figuring out what to get him :) Sunday is our son's birthday. So unfortunately for dad, he is going to have to share the day :)

Lelainia N. Lloyd said...

I don't have a dad, but my husband is a phoenominal dad to our son and he's also a wonderful dog dad to our Lab.

This year I suck in the Father's Day department because I haven't planned anything, really. I did get him two tickets to the Lion's game (football) which just happens to fall on Father's Day so he and our son are going. (I have a commitment.)

Not sure if I will get home in time to cook something special or not, but then again, they may be too full of hotdogs and popcorn to care.

No brownie points for me this year.

The Clines said...

I still need ideas! I'm thinking about some golf equipment/accessories since he loves golf.

Kelli said...

My husband and I are expecting our first baby in August, so I got him some little onesies (for the baby!) that say "I love my daddy!" as well as his favorite cologne.

Tracy Williams said...

A huge coffee mug with our babies black and white photos on it. :) He's going to love it!

A key chain from the vintage pearl with all 4 kids names on it! A shirt from all the kids. A requested strawberry cake from Edgar's, a local bakery, that is out of this world and a massage that I was able to purchase on Groupon!!

H is for Hillman said...

My husband already got his father's day gift last week. A night out at the fights with the boys! This is what he wanted, he works so hard and is such a great dad, he needed some "me" time, just like us moms do. Sunday I will make a big breakfast and we will probably do a picnic at the park or something fun as a family
Jhil2626@yahoo.com

Jessica said...

I got the father of my children a picture similar to the ones of your children holding the signs, only it's just a single photo with everyone holding their signs. So cute, he is going to love it! I will definately be buying myself something if I win. I've been eyeing a few items lately!:)

Shari said...

I can't wait to spend father's day with my dad! He is amazing and has helped me in so many ways!! He is an amazing person! I will be getting him some new golf balls because he loves golfing!!

rachel e. said...

we are having a cook out!

Bar 7 Ranch said...

Believe it or not, I got my Hubby a good pair of jumper cables for Fathers Day. I am always needing ideas from him, and a few months ago he told me next time I bought him a gift he wanted a "good" set of jumper cables!! lol

burlap+blue said...

Honestly am not sure yet, but am definitely going to be working on it today (in part thanks to this reminder post!!)...both of the men in my life are so hard to shop for!

Alice (fa11enan9e1) said...

My dad always tells us to just promise to be good. I think this year I might see if I can buy him a camera lens though!

Kelly R. said...

I got my Dad a Swiffer Duster, because he "doesn't know how to dust" and cologne. I got my hubby 2 Life is Good t-shirts and we are going on a mountain biking trip in Asheville, NC!

Marie said...

We're giving my hubby some $ to get new sunglasses. He has been looking for a good pair. So exciting, right?

Nikosha said...

I am so happy to have my husband on father's day. He is such a good Dad to our two little boys. He deserves a far more exciting present then the breakfast we make and the cards we give him...I'm not sure I'll ever be able to convey to him what a great Father he is but we'll keep trying!

Kristin @ Ellie-Town said...

We are getting the dad a couple new shirts and then a recipe book to make popsicles and the rocket molds so that they look just like when we were kids. He's going to love it!

9isfine said...

My dad isn't with us anymore, but our tradition was always a photo together and placed in a frame on top of the last year's photo. We always took a walk down memory lane as we looked at all the past photos.

just me and z said...

I will be giving my daughter's father a lovely VINTAGE PEARL bracelet that I ordered that says "I love you, daddy. Love, Zoie". I received it in the mail a couple days ago, and I really think he is going to LOVE it! I also got him a print of my daughter from snapfish (free 11x14 collage... gotta love it!) and then some bicycle decor for his desk (loves the bicycles). This is our first year celebrating father's day, so it is pretty exciting.
Thanks for the chance to win some goodies from your shop! I am wearing my necklace from you as we speak, and my mom wears hers all the time too that I gave her for mother's day. :)
Happy Friday!

Toni said...

A funny t-shirt from Cafe Press, and an iPad (which will also be his bday present).

Heidi Jo said...

i LOVE the framed sign idea. that is beautiful. what a fantastic looking family you have!

chad loves to hunt, and he really wanted to mount a beautiful wood-duck that he and my 9 year old son got while hunting last fall. that is so not my taste....but we went ahead and did it. so that is his father's day gift.

but we'd love to win him one here! a bit more sentimental, perhaps :o)

Great giveaway! I invited my dad and siblings over to my place for a breakfast I'm making for everyone. He just went through a divorce with my mom and he deserves to be treated on Fathers Day. After breakfast we're going to my grandpa's to have lunch and swim in his pool.. just spending time with family is all he ever wants so I know he'll have a special day.

Kelly said...

My kids made their Daddy a footprints art print with a cute poem and we framed it. He's also getting a personalized coffee mug. Thanks for the chance!

My husband is getting a frame with a cutout of my daughter's hand print in cute paper. He buys himself anything he needs or wants, so he's really hard to shop for! I hope he can find some room in his new office for this little gift. :)

Gabriela said...

I helped my daughter make a hand made card for Daddy. It's in the shape of a shop apron and we inserted a paint ship and a home made paint stick, and a Home Depot gift card in the "pocket".

Jacki said...

Since we moved into our house last spring we have been on the hunt for the perfect garden gnome. We didn't want to be able to find ours in 20 other yards in the neighborhood and we wanted it to truly represent us. While at the ISU university bookstore I found an ISU garden gnome (actually they had a boy and a girl). My partner is a HUGE fan, so we now have the perfect gnome (and will soon have his perfect partner once the holiday is over).

SweDaisy said...

My husband will be celebrating his first father's day this year. Whenever he gives our daughter Olivia a kiss he always asks "Kisses for Daddy?" I was in Chapters last week and found a book titled "Kisses for Daddy" I just had to get it!

Take Care,
Lisa

My parents and I will be in Vietnam for fathers day this year spending time with my mothers family and also doing stuff for their missionary work... So the hopes are to make him his favorite meal (fried chicken.. as they do not have conventional ovens here and my easy bake oven would simply not fit into my suitcase ;) ) And thankfully I was able to find a shabby new wallet before we left and personalized it up with new pictures of the family inside :)

It's my husband's first father's day and I bought him one of those trailers that goes behind his bike. He's been wanting one since he got the bike at Christmas when i was pregnant, but it hasn't been in the budget. I save my money for months and finally bought him one! I can't wait to see his face on Sunday!

We are finishing off our basement this week, that is his big gift!

Karen said...

Got my husband a keychain from your shop, a onesie for my son to wear, and I'll be making a special breakfast and his favorite dinner. We got my dad a framed picture of our son for his work. We got together with my husband's family, and I think we're getting him a shirt?

Big Momma said...

I made my (super nerdy) husband some star wars cookies for a special treat and for the actual present, I found an old picture of him entertaining our 18 month old twins when they were about 3 months. All three of them have huge smiles and it's one of my favorite candid photos. I had the picture put onto a mug and filled it with his guilty pleasure - hot chocolate mix! Should be a pretty tasty day for him... : )

I am getting my hubby for fathers day something really simple. His Nanny passed away a year ago this spring and she made the "boys" as she called my husband and his brothers french toast every time the boys stayed with her, and every time we came down for a visit over the years...so I have her recipe and Sunday I am making him his Nannys french toast. :)

Brittany Hamman said...

We found daddy a grill for $10 on a garage sale! Score! I had been searching for months and finally found this deal!

Marcy said...

We are very simple (and live on one income). My husband just asked for us to be together as a family. He is coming home from a week long business trip tomorrow. So on Father's Day we will go to church, cookout on the grill, and make homemade coconut milk ice cream. I did order a free 8x10 photo collage from Walgreens, so we will surprise him with that. :)

Princess Christy said...

My dad has been working non-stop on my house since I moved in. To thank him and get him to relax, I'm getting him a bottle of Maker's Mark. Unoriginal, but something he'd never buy for himself!

Mandy said...

I made a scrapbook of my husband with our children. The kids are going to make cards for him and we'll give it all to him on Father's Day.

Molly said...

I am getting him the golf balls that he asked for and the iPhone 4G that he asked for. Since it is his first, I made a photo book of our 6 month old son for his office. :)

Jenni said...

We are in the middle of fixing up one of the rooms in our house as the "record room" (when my father-in-law passed, we discovered his love of records and an incredible collection, so we will have a room where we get to "be w/ him" and his music he loved). My hubby picked out a leather chair/recliner that he wanted, so happy father's day to him! He is also getting fancy salt and pepper shakers!

Carolyn said...

Hi My father passed away 16 years ago so I usually try to spend father's day with my sister or mom doind something family oriented as I know he would be happy with that and that we are altogether. Love your gift ideas, have to share them with my sister for her kids for next father's day! I would love to win this!

Jennie said...

Hubby is getting a card and handprint from our 14 month-old daughter.

Lori said...

My father in law has 2 of everything so he will be getting a gift certificate to his favorite store again this year ~ I try my best to be creative at Christmas for him ~ but it is exhausting! (insert smile here). Have a great week-end!

Loving Washington said...

For my husband, I purchased one of your thin leather bands that says "devoted". Your crew was wonderful and had it mailed out in time for him to receive it. My husband is currently deployed so it was really important (for me) to get it to him on time. He is even waiting until Sunday to open it! I even used the gift certificate I received from our Mother's Day purchase on my husband instead of me (which I am hoping he appreciates).

One day I'll have some jewelry from your shop to celebrate my children.

For my own father, it was really difficult trying to figure out what to get him. I had done a huge gift certificate to your shop for Mother's Day because it was my Mom to a tee. I always get frustrated that Mom's are more celebrated than Dad's so I was starting to get down about finding IT for my Dad. My Mom suggested a BNSF shirt because he really wants one, but I felt it would be coming from her and not me.

FINALLY yesterday, I found the perfect gift for my Dad. A Murder Mystery Dinner Train ride. I talked with my Mom and said my Dad would FLIP over this, but she was worried about cost. I did it anyway. It is PERFECT and I feel as though it is coming from ME to my Dad. I can't WAIT for Sunday!

Oh and I did put this up on Facebook yesterday, but I won't get specific on the chance my Dad sees it. (he is not likely to look on here as my Mom already purchased and has received her Mother's Day jewelry (which she LOVES by the way).

My Dad is a pretty hard guy to shop for. He doesn't really tell you anything that he would like. This year however he's gotten very into trying out new recipes, so I am going to get him a nice new frying pan that he has mentioned are really good. :)

Debbie said...

My dad and I agree the best gift we give each other is time spent together.

I'm actually giving my husband one of the leather cuff bracelets this year with hope written on it to commemorate our present journey through foster care towards adoption. He's an amazing dad - especially to the hurting little ones who aren't even ours to call our own yet. PS. I tweeted too! @sleighs79

A Love Worth Waiting For.... said...

I love the VP and I would love to win this gift certificate!

All of us children (there is 9 of us) went in together and got my Dad a Ipod Touch!

My Husband isn't a Father yet but we are planning to adopt soon. (I am unable to have children due to Ovarian Cancer) so I got him a leather band from the VP with our future baby's name on it! :)

Shannon said...

I had my boys paint all over a canvas for him! It was a huge mess but they are two and three and it turned out cute. I love your idea with the three photos and "I love you". That is awesome!

Celeste said...

For Father's Day - I'm giving my dad something similar to what you've posted here! I found a frame that has 4 spots to put a photo -- I put a black & white photo in each spot ... all of the photos are of my sister & I at different ages -- showing how we've grown-up :) Our daddy has lots of photos in his office too. ;)

Katy said...

I have no idea what to get my husband!! Already took care of the grandpas, but I always ask my husband what he wants but he rarely can think of something to tell me! So, I plan to make a fabulous breakfast, give him some time at home without to rest and relax alone - maybe something will come to me!

Michele said...

Hubby's getting an aerated minnow bucket. He'll be in his glory!

dubiousRN said...

My sisters and I are getting my dad a new blue-ray player. He keeps talking about getting one but never does so we will do it for him.

sydney @ memorable minutes said...

got him a fun apron that says "chief sandwich maker"
his sandwiches are the best!

Jill said...

My Dad is getting a gift card to Barnes and Noble; you can never go wrong wtih that right? My husband is getting the USA Soccer jersey - he loves soccer and it has been so hard to find but I finally found it! I just hope it gets here in time. By the way, I absolutely love my necklace that my husband got me for mother's day. You can see a picture on my blog. Thank you!

Life With the Crazies said...

This year, I gave my husband a trip to visit his dad for Father's Day. Living all the way across the country away from his family is hard for him, especially being so close to his dad. We will spend the day at church, having a bonfire BBQ, and playing horseshoes and fishing. Just the kind of day my husband adores, with all of his favorite people!

Stacie Souza said...

For my dad for fathers day he wanted a car polishing kit and a belt sander. Being a carpenter is his side job and he LOVES building things so I thought it was appropriate. Of course, we had to give photos as well. My father-in-law on the other hand was more difficult. His wife told me to get him a gift certificate so he can go eat somewhere and she doesn't have to cook for him all the time. (lol) But then we get to my brother and I just had to give him the leather cuff you guys came out with....with his favorite bible verse. He LOVES it! Thanks Vintage Pearl!

CurlyGirlD said...

My hubby is getting a hammock stand, to go with last year's hammock. (I couldn't afford them both at the same time, so he had to wait for a bit. :) He's also getting a "DAD" photo of our DD & "can't wait to meet you" card from our unborn #2, due in 4 short weeks.

The Cohen's said...

The one tradition I have with Father's day so far is a homemade card with the kids hand prints on them. So, he's getting one of those (as tradition) and a homemade apple pie (his request). I also got some "I heart dad" babylegs for our youngest to wear on Father's day.

Ashley Bray said...

This is not sentimental b/c hubby likes practical gifts. He has been wanting a digital scale for fishing so we researched and found the best one. I know he will like it.
Thanks for the giveaway!

coheed25 said...

My hubby has been wanting to get a tattoo on each wrist, one saying "family" and the other saying "faith". I used to think that was an odd spot for a tattoo but what better way to share the 2 most important things in his life. So I made him an appt to get it done for Father's Day.

Candice @ Made With Love said...

Yeah for Father's Day!!! My Dad is out of town so we will be celebrating Father's Day next weekend, which means I still have lots of time to figure out the perfect gift- whew! :) Thank you for this opportunity!

michelev said...

The kids made a BBQ apron and wrote funny stuff on it! We all made cards for him! He loves those things the most!!

{Anne} said...

Thanks for the chance to win. Hubby is getting new work shirts and ties...boring but much needed. Kids have made him cute canvas hand paintings too!
Happy weekend!!!!

The Hummels said...

hugs and kisses!

i also made a coupon for my husband to redeem at your store. he is coming out of a really difficult period in his life and i think that your leather cuff would be perfect for him. i just don't know what word he would like best....so i'm letting him decide.

i really love the pics you took of your kids with the "i <3 you" signs. might need to do that, too! :)

We don't have a lot of money this year so I just plan on making him feel extra special with a yummy breakfast, a relaxing day and a good massage (by me!) I hope he knows how much we appreciate him!

Miss Anne said...

I am getting my spouse a card from our unborn son... a new grill.. and a day filled with whatever J wants to do. :)

Amanda said...

Tweeted it! @amandahorvath

Miss Anne said...

I am getting my J a card from our unborn son, (and one from the dog too!), a new grill, and a day filled with whatever J wants to do!

Krys said...

I'm getting the Hubs golf club covers and a gift certificate for a round of golf. Little and I also made him an "art" piece--a small canvas with her footprints all over it in different color paint. That was a really messy, but really fun project to do with an almost 4-month-old :)

Krys said...

Under the Oaks said...

Love your stuff!
I'm giving my dad photos of my kids!

Gretchen said...

I'm still not sure what to get my husband for Father's Day. I think I will read through these comments to get ideas!

Rebecca said...

Ha! (My story goes back to Mother's Day...!) My mom said she didn't want any gifts, so we got her a Little Tikes Cozy Car. You know, so she can enjoy her grandson driving around in her house! For father's day we couldn't be outdone, so he got a sand and water table for the outside patio. (We celebrated early since they are out of town this weekend!)

Jenny said...

new clothes and a new egg pan!

Ali @ Mommie Life said...

This is my honey's first Fathers Day so I decided to take some pictures I had of him and our little munchkin and have them blown up into nice matte pictures. I can't wait to give them to him! :)

Heather said...

I will be making a delicious dinner! Probably will be his favorites of taco salad and Pavlova for dessert.

Tiffany said...

I was actually going to do a picture gift too. I found a neat tutorial to spray paint some wood and modpodge pictures on top of it. I thought that was more unique than the picture frame idea I came up with on my own.

Tiffany said...

I tweeted too!

Rachel said...

Nothing like baked goods for Dad! I'll make a cake or some delicious cookies- foolproof gift to show my dad I'm thinking of him. :)

Mrs Soup said...

A nice dinner with all the family. Filet, potatos, some nice Scotch and cigars. Good times, great food, awesome people....it'll be a good day!

Laura Hall said...

Well we just bought our first home, and had our first baby so its a big year! Baby and I got him a weed wacker, and a few amazing pics of baby for his office. what a great daddy he is!

jodi @ back40life said...

it looks like it is going to work out for my hubby to get a tractor this weekend {a longtime dream} - made life easy for me :)

Polka Dot Moon said...

Well I'd LOVE to give him something from the Vintage Pearl with the kids name on it of course!!

We have a weekend planned of homemade breakfasts, a family day at the Science Center, a BBQ with his mom and some new workout clothes.

He's been working out super hard and loves they gym so the kids chose this :)

Thanks for the chance!

Stephanie said...

I've been saving babysitting money for 6 months to secretly buy my hubby a nice digital SLR camera. He borrowed his mom's for an afternoon about a year ago and hasn't stopped talking about it. I am so excited to give it to him because it will be a huge suprise!

Mom2Da'Gorgeouses said...

Both my Dad & my DH are huge movie fans, so movies it is! :) My Dad also does leather crafting so I might just buy him some more leather. Hugs & Blessings!

wishful nals said...

these photos are so sweet! for my husband -- i am getting him a puppy! it will be his 1st father's day :)

amysmack said...

I love the picture idea of the kids! So creative!!!

Erica Wyatt said...

I have bought him some shorts and shirts for summer from me. He is a hunter, so I bought him a hunting game he can play on the WII with the kids, from them. FUN!

Kristine Hanson said...

we are having my parents over for dinner :)

mommy2luke2008 said...

My son and I are giving my dad a photo coffee mug with a picture of my son and my dad on it and it say World's Best Papaw!! Kinda cheesy, I know, but he'll love it!

oh please oh please oh please!
I would love to win this.
So far I have gotten the generic. A tie. But I ordered a milkshake maker. Not a blender but one of those malt shop makers. He loves ice cream and makes shakes ALL the time.
He would love a leather cuff. And I know he would love me getting one of your gorgeous necklaces. He is an amazing husband like that.

S Club Mama said...

I just bought my husband a Husker transparent plate that hangs up (I don't know how to describe it). He loves the Huskers and we don't have enough decor stuff. :)

I would like to get him some grilling spices for his new grill though.

threeboogers said...

All he requested was a date together. What a sweet guy huh?
But I'm trying to get their footprints done at a local place so we'll see if that happens.
Happy Father's day all.
