Dad’s Rock Okay!

Dad Daddy-o Father Main-man Papa Old-man Gramps Grandpa Pop Hubby Hubster Better – Half

However you refer to the dad / granddad / husband in your world,  next Sunday 7th September is all about HIM!

Celebrating and thanking the guy who ( if he’s anything like my hubster man ) takes the rubbish out , put’s petrol in the car, takes the kids to school and sports, fixes everything from the leaky shower to necklaces (true story) or builds you a kitchen!

Okay maybe the last one doesn’t apply to everyone and I’m just super-duper lucky to have married a tradie!

So, I’ve put together a gallery of gift ideas after perusing ALL the junk mail delivered to my inbox or letterbox! Nothing too fancy or expensive but some cool idea’s sure to come in handy!

We all know a lot of men HATE shopping! Not all, but I dare say the vast majority would much rather do anything else than head to the local shopping center. That’s why I think it’s nice to spoil the dad’s on Fathers Day and gift them a little something they wouldn’t normally contemplate buying.

All the dad’s / hubby’s and grandpa’s that I know are probably going to be happy spending the day with the people they love. I know my own Mr Style Within’s perfect day would be a sleep – in followed by a big cooked breakie and an afternoon spent with the kids and his own dad. I’m sure I get a look in…….. somewhere in there!

Our plans for this year (at this stage) are looking like the above mentioned followed by an afternoon at the park with extended family!

What about you?

Do you go all out for Father’s Day, big lunch out somewhere or do you keep it low key and relaxed?

I would love to know what everyone else has planned and what gift’s you’ve spied for your man!
