With Father’s Day just around the corner, we were thrilled to have Kristen Chase and Liz Gumbinner of Cool Mom Picks join us in The Motherhood to offer us advice and inspiration on great gifts for dad.  Providing additional suggestions were Cool Mom Picks editors Christina and Delilah, along with Julie of The Mom Slant.


If you are looking for a Father’s Day gift, check out these fantastic suggestions.


Serve Dad breakfast in bed with Cool Mom Picks’ pancakes – and add a little ego boost with a “World’s Greatest Dad” sign!




For later in the day, perhaps you can serve Dad’s favorite beverage complete with a whimsical take on the traditional Father’s Day necktie theme.



More treats for dads with a sweet tooth: a TV remote all to himself for the day (or at least, a cookie in the shape of a remote), Guinness flavored cupcakes, and a bucket of Swedish fish for the fisherman in your kids’ life.






Looking for something a little more savory?  For Chef Dad, a french fry slicer.


If your father or husband is more into technology than treats, Cool Mom Picks and others had suggestions for him, too – like this Bluetooth-enabled audio system from Soundfreaq, or a personalized leather case for his iPhone.

If Dad has an inner geek and a great sense of humor, try visiting Superhero Supplies for fun Dad Superhero t-shirts and other items.  Cool Mom Picks also recommends this “You Are My Superhero” keychain and offers suggestions for funny out-of-the-box Father’s Day cards.





Get the kids involved in DIY gifts, too.  You can have young children decorate a memo pad for his desk or help draw or write a story in a nicely bound photo book.



Don’t forget to visit Cool Mom Picks to enter their fantastic giveaway for great Father’s Day prizes!!!




Whether you choose to buy or make a gift, send a card or simply spend some quality family time with Dad, we wish you a very happy Father’s Day!
