Ok, so my husband is potentially the world's hardest person to shop for. Between his birthday and Father's Day Gifts……I feel like I'm constantly on the lookout for gifts that I can hoard until holidays. I joke all the time that while I'm a total shopper, my husband is a minimalist. Meaning, he doesn't want a ton of STUFF. So gifts for him? I feel like they need to foster an experience or to have a strong memory attached. Truth, I even bought him a really nice watch this year for his birthday and he returned it. He didn't feel like he needed it.
Father's Day Gifts For the Dad Who Hates Gifts
Full disclosure, I let Robbie HELP pick out his gifts this year. So they're not a surprise. But I REALLY wanted to share his choices in advance. That way, if you're in a Father's Day Gift pickle, you'll have some time to check out what we got! This year, we decided to use the The Grommet to search for unique Father's Day gifts. The Grommet is a marketplace filled with curated, interesting products from small businesses and local makers. I loved using the site to discover brands and products that had unique messages and stories, and bonus? It's always great to shop small!
A few of Robbie's favorite items from The Grommet
3D Stadium Wall Art: Robbie is a GIANT college football fan (go Gamecocks!). I do NOT share his passion, but I know how much he loves it. StadiumViews makes these amazing pieces of wall art with models of real stadiums (pro and college level) and they're perfect gifts for a sports fan or an alumni. The details are amazing, Robbie and Lydia spent almost an hour checking out ours when it arrived!
Lake Wall Art: Got a swimmer, surfer, boater or fisherman? These stunning prints from Lake Art are a perfect gift. We loved the Pacific Coast print, perfect way to remember all our roadtrips all the way up the California coast.
Bonfire Steel Fire Pit: This summer, we've committed to BBQs and hanging out in our backyard more. Doesn't this fire pit look like the perfect way to spend more time outside? I can just imagine s'mores roasting and staying up past all our bedtimes.
Yard Dice: Looking for fun games you can play as a family? Now that Robbie is done with graduate school, he's all about that quality time we struggled to find for the last two years. These yard dice are a ton of fun, he and Lydia played with them the night they arrived for HOURS.
