Every year our family has it rather easy for Father's Day as it always falls
on the same day as the U.S. Open.

My father and David love to have the afternoon to themselves, order whatever food they want and watch golf for the entire afternoon and into the evening.
They also enjoy having some cold drinks to enjoy with the game.
Note: We, of course, spend the afternoon going out to lunch, a movie and some girl time.
If your guy is not into golf, an experience normally trumps a gift: a Jurassic World movie day, a dinner at his favorite restaurant, take him to a place he loves and enjoy the day with dad.
Coming up with a thoughtful Father's Day gift is nice and appreciated but the DIY gifts never seem to get a lot of use. Our favorite gifts are:
Beers Around the World - A 12-pack of beers from around the world to enjoy during the game. They can purchased at World Market or European Street.
If dad is not a drinker - then root beer would be a great choice!
Wine Glasses - Once again World Market has great choices for the discerning taste.
Food - Crackers, sausages, cheese and chips - without any remarks about carbs, salt, fat, etc.
You can go simple here or order a nice gift basket - Hickory Farms would be great choice that would be highly appreciated ( unless your guy is a vegetarian or very healthy eater)
|We love these mouse pads!|
Photo Memorabilia - Anyone these days can make a memorable gift through Shutterfly,(40% off coupon with code: 40TOSHARE good until June 23), Snapfish, ( 50% off with code: Summer15 good until June 21), or even your local Walgreens or CVS
(personally, I love Walgreens as I can pick up my item that day and not incur any shipping fees.)
I have to admit with Instagram, facebook and other great websites you can make a truly memorable gift for someone in your life. A card, mug, mousepad even an annual calendar with family member's special days and pictures of those you love or special places you have visited.
Hope you have a wonderful Father's Day and that you and your family are truly blessed!
