Dr. A’s Father’s Day gift guide 2018

Father’s day 2018 is upon us friends. Living far away from parents and home is tough as it is and all these special days make it even harder. But then I shift my perspective, count all my blessings, and think about all my dad has taught me. To always stay positive, live in the moment and not worry too much. That brings me to my own husband, Dr. A (as you guys know him), – what a wonderful dad he is to our kids! He is often the toughest person in our house to buy gifts for, but not anymore.

I recruited him to come up a gift guide for Father’s Day to put on the blog. So I can pretty much buy anything from this list and he will enjoy it. Or so I hope! So here is a curated gift guide of things Dr. A owns or would love to own or simply thinks that the dad in your life will admire. Not necessarily in an order..:)

Father’s Day Gift Guide

This Coffee Mug comes with a fun message to get the day started with a smile.

What dad does not love his music. And as much travel as Dr. A does, these Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones are a life saver – and noise canceling…hello long flights!

Fun fact – I got this Cuisinart Grilling Tool Set for Dr. A long before we owned a grill. Anticipation! A set of barbecue tools that you will mostly need and not a 20 piece box with most of which is just going to be lounging in the box.

These Copper Mugs are great for offering Moscow Mules if your man likes to entertain (just like Dr. A).

Aah. This Chic Dad Watch might be my favorite on this list. Does your man need one? I feel like watches are one of the most important ways that a man accessorises. Dr. A is extremely picky about his watches and is not a fan of big and bulky watches that are trending these days. He like sleek dials and clean lines and I love him <3.

Between the World and Me is a great read. A story where Ta-Nehisi Coates tells his son the story about his awakening to discover his place in this world. It’s deep!

I am very very happy that this Sports Water Bottle has made the cut. Dr. A is not a big water drinker so having a water bottle on his desk or with him reminds him to drink water and stay hydrated.

You have to love socks in fun patterns and colors. Even men, right? And when the socks are called Happy Socks, how can you not?

These Flip-Flops are super comfy and a great alternative to slides. Awesome to wear around the house, running errands or to the pool/beach.

We got this Apron for Dr. A last year for Father’s Day. The picture is not very clear but is says “CAUTION: Extremely Hot”, how fun! I am a great fan of Flirty Aprons and have owned and gifted lot of their products.

That is it!

Hope this helps you with ideas for the men in your lives. Enjoy your day, my friends and Happy weekend!

Love – Vaishali.
