father's day

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 8:39 PM
So tell me, what is everyone planning for Father's Day? Both the men in my life are so hard to shop so and I'm pretty stuck at this point. Ties, golf clubs, flasks and all the other "normal" presents definitely wont cut it with these two men.
My dad is building a 1967 car so I'm sure some parts for it would be his ideal present but last time I checked I known almost nothing about cars so I would have to ask him what he needs and then that would ruin the surprise part of everything.

For our anniversary I got the hubby an amazing gas grill so of course I can't get him one for Father's Day too but I was thinking about getting a grill for my dad since his is almost older then time.
I found an amazing grill that I know he would die over but it's definitely not in my budget

I'll probably end up going with a Brinkman grill since they tend to be on the decent side of the price bar and are good quality. Finding the cheapest Weber grills might be a challenge but I'm on a mission.
Searching through grills and grilling accessories is so nerve wracking and annoying that I've been searching for a couple weeks now and I'll probably be on the hunt for the perfect one for right up until the last minute. My dad is sorta into golf so I might be able to get him something along those lines as well.
Can anyone please tell me why it's so hard to shop for, or has that just been all the men in my life?!
So as far as my hubby I'm still lost as to what to get him. I'll probably stick with the trusty video game for his Xbox since that always seems to work. Problem with that is nothing is out that he doesn't already have! Grrr, what am I going to do??

I am desperate! I need some ideas, please!

I'm in the same boat. I was thinking of putting a picture of my baby girl and her daddy in a frame for my husband. And then one of my dad and I for my dad. Does your dad or husband like music? Maybe an iTunes gift card or make him a cd? I was also thinking of making a video collage to music. I don't know though.

Ugh, what to get men who have everything!! I was walking around walmart yesterday and found a cute craft idea. There was a Worlds greatest Dad tee with finger paint attchd so we could place the kids handprints on his tee. It was under $10 and will mean a lot to him. As for what I'm going to get him, I'm still up in the air!!

This post just made me realize how close Father's Day is & I still don't have a clue what to get my hubs. Or my dad for that matter...even though I probably won't get to see him :( Maybe I can mail him something nice!!!

Thanks for the reminder though!

I have no idea what to get my husband.. he has expressed intrest in a wii and now the price has dropped, maybe that. A razor would be good, but he's picky.
