Father's Day Gift Guide

Is it just me, or are men hard to buy for? I can always please my mom with a candle, or some pampering body products. But I'm never quite sure what to get my father or husband. Here are some ideas to help break out of the "new tie" niche for Father's Day:

If you are looking for a philanthropic gift, a donation to World Vision in your husband's name can be a meaningful way to celebrate Father's Day.   Gift ideas that match Dad’s interests include
-For the gardener - Hybrid or drought-resistant seeds for a farmer - $17
-For the sports enthusiast – 4 Soccer balls for a school - $32
-For the music buff – Art and music instruction - $40
-For the first time father – Needed supplies for a new mother to care for her baby - $77
-For the book lover - Stock a school in America with essential learning tools and supplies - $100

We mamas are big fans of the baby carriers, and there are so many dad-friendly slings on the market today that would make a great gift. One new take on the traditional framed carrier is The Kokopax. Built with a frame like a camping backpack, it is comfortable enough to use for the active endeavors dad might enjoy. It's perfect for walks or hiking, and offers a safe and comfortable ride for baby. The fabrics are gender-neutral, and we think dads wearing babies look extra HOT!

Ever since we saw a presentation in the airport, my husband has been itching to try Rosetta Stone.  The company allowed us to try their new TotalE.  It's a cutting-edge system for learning a new language (we've always wanted to be better at Spanish).  The new TotalE system lets you practice conversation with live native-speaking coaches, and you ca connect with fellow learners, including native speakers of your new language.  Check out the preview on their website.

I am a huge fan of Lisa Leonard's jewelry, and her sterling keychain is a great personalized yet masculine gift for dads.

For the guy who has everything, a Netflix subscription is the gift that keeps on giving!

If your husband is the type who likes to capture family moments on film, the Flip camera is a great alternate to the camcorder.  It's small enough to slip into a pocket, and quickly uploads to your computer via USB port, for easy sharing.   We got one for Christmas last year, and since then my husband has really taken ownership of filming our kids consistently.
