Let’s face it. Sometime, most of the time Father’s Day is overshadowed by Mother’s Day. I mean we give birth to the child and many of them scream for mommy first when they get hurt or want something. But we can’t forget our fathers.
They are our family’s protector and provider, but they also get to nurture little ones too. My husband has a son from a previous relationship and our little girl is my first child and his first girl.
She arrived early by six weeks and is truly our miracle. I only saw glimpses of his relationship with his son when he was our daughter’s age, but I’m seeing my husband with her. I see when he tosses her into the air and she erupts in a fit of giggles. I also see him melt when she gives him wet baby kisses on the cheek and tries to wrap her tiny hands around his neck for a hug. Or when it’s bath time and he let’s her splash around getting water all over the place “because she’s having fun,” he says.
These are the sweet moments of fatherhood. To be honest doesn’t a man like that deserve a great gift on HIS day. Below is a collection of great, albeit last minute-not-so-last-minute Father’s Day gifts.
