Papa’s Day

This Sunday screams “let’s make dad feel extra special today” so let’s get to it, starting off with greeting cards. Many to choose from out there – here are some of my favs.

Chest Hair from Wit and Whistle

Best Father by Odd Ball Press

New Dad Card by Sad Shop

As far as gifts are concerned, think outside the expected golf clubs, grill kit or new boxers, (unless he still wears the ones with the holes…no comment), with these unique gifts he’ll be sure to remember.

Here’s a clever version to making your notebook personal for pops. Upload a handful of your favorite pictures of Dad and the family, and blurb will disperse them through a one-of-a-kind notebook. You choose on how many pages and then decide on blank, lined or graph paper.

Now that is cool!

For that dad who wishes he would have stuck with the band, surprise him with his own drumstick pencils.


It might feel like yesterday that your son was in diapers, jumping on the kindergarten bus or headed to overnight camp (time does fly as a parent, I feel it every day!). Your husband can celebrate this incredible bond with his son (or daughter) through For My Son, which stores memories, photos and mementos which are worth holding. A proven tear-jerker especially coming from a child.


This journal has a different twist, coming from the life of a father. My Dad: His Stories. His Words. asks dad questions all about his life, creating a keepsake to be treasured. You can include a coffee shop gift certificate inside and suggest a “dad date” with one of the children and they could listen to his stories as he writes them down.

For the devoted baseball coach, treat him to this Baseball Scorekeeper. New York Times sports columnist Stuart Miller has created a modern ballpark scorekeeper with handsome, handwritten ledgers and even a secure pocket for stashing game-day stubs and mementos.


This business card stamp from MaeMae Paperie is ideal for his work stationery, business cards, notecards and more. Help him honor the pen and paper with this stylish yet understated office supply which takes no creativity whatsoever. Obviously this will take longer than a week to arrive but print a copy from the website and let him know it’s on the way.

Of course, a handwritten Happy Father’s Day to the BEST Dad Around Town is about the best gift a father could receive.
