If I see one more “tie” advertised as the perfect gift for Dad, I’m going to scream. My husband would rather get a new garbage can for Father’s Day then an uptight stodgy tie. The last time he wore a tie was at our wedding in 2001. We all know that dads come in all shapes and sizes so it’s only fitting that Father’s Day gifts should too. Pick out which dad you are buying for in our FATHER’s DAY GOODIE GUIDE!
FATHER’s DAY GOODIE GUIDE
1. THE COUCH POTATO DAD-
This is for the dad who permanently parks his heinie on the couch with his remote control in one hand watching his favorite Zombie Show. When I saw this product I squealed out loud and said, “YES, YES, YES, now does it come in women’s sizes too?” This is the ultimate lounger for the lazy dad, with only one zip you are snuggled up like a swaddled baby. It’s the The Original Onesie – $99.00 USD
2.THE JACKED DAD –
This is for the uber fit Dad who posts videos of himself on Facebook doing a one handed push up. You know who you are with your incredible 12 pack abs. It’s also good for us moms chasing our kids around all day. It’s The Glukos energy drink.
Glukos is an all-natural, performance energy product that provides users twice the energy, twice as fast as leading “energy” products on the market. It’s an Oral IV that’ll keep your energy levels at an optimum level while avoiding the “crash” or “bonk” of caffeinated or mainstream energy drinks. It comes in six different delivery mechanisms, including powder, ready-to-drink, tummies, tablets, bars and gels.
3. THE OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DAD –
The dad who likes everything in its place. The dad who yells out, “Hey who moved the coffee table a quarter of an inch? With this pouch he can keep all his valuables in one special place with the cool Phone Pocket Plus.

6. THE ROCK STAR or SHOWTUNE DAD –
This is the perfect gift for my friend, Chris who dressed as Guns and Roses for Halloween and when I told him he truly looked like a RockStar he said to me, “Do you actually think – I DON’T think I’m a rock star?” It’s also a great gift for the dad who gleefully belts out show tunes in the minivan.

This is for my husband who defies the tie and celebrates casual friday every day of the week. I love this shirt because it also comes with a Stain Breaker and FastDry technology – perfect for my husband who always seems to have spaghetti sauce on his shirt. Also love the short sleeves so I can see my husband’s hot veins popping out of his forearms- too much info?
