father’s day gift ideas 2017

i really enjoy shopping for gifts for other people.
when i find something that is a perfect gift – it makes me so happy!
i know that a lot of people feel the opposite and shopping is torture.
or you feel drained by it or like you can never find the right thing for anyone.
SO… my gift to you today is to attempt to help you find a great Father’s Day gift for a dad in your life!
all of these are Amazon Prime links so you can still get it in time for Father’s Day
or have it sent directly to dad himself!

i have put this Homemade Ice Cream Maker on several lists but that’s because it was the BEST gift i ever bought for craig!

it is such a fun treat to have on summer nights.

it’s that deeply engrained “hunter” in all of them.
