All of the products in this post we have tried, reviewed or already owned. Some of these products I was given in order to conduct my review. As always, all thoughts & opinions are 100% my own.
One of my favorite blog posts that I type up throughout the year is our Gift Guides. It is really fun for me to try new brands and then review them for all of you. I also love sharing products that my family has known and loved throughout the yearas because I like to think that if our family likes certain things, maybe your families will like the same things too! In this Father’s Day Gift Guide, I’m sharing only a few of my husband’s favorite gift ideas. These gift ideas are all items my husband uses daily and loves. Just like this year’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide, our Father’s Day Gift Guide is very concise with literally the only gifts my husband would want this year.
Many of you may not know this but my husband travels a lot for his organization Man Up and Go. When he travels, he often brings three suitcases and he fills them to the max weight limit for each airline he flies. The suitcases are filled with donated items for people he works with in countries like Uganda and Ethiopia. When it comes to traveling with his own clothing and toiletries, he travels very light. This Kindle E-reader is the perfect size to stuff in a backpack and pass the time while enduring long flights and long layovers. It has a crazy long battery life (over a week – especially when in airplane mode) and holds thousands of books. We’ve become addicted to borrowing ebooks on Overdrive. Before long trips, my husband will load up his Kindle E-reader with books and then read them at his leisure while on his trips. Right now this Kindle E-reader is marked down to $59.99 from $79.99! Please note this price is subject to change.
Our Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is a gift idea that our entire family adores. We don’t watch live TV so we rely on streaming Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime to our TV. We use our Fire Stick multiple times a day. When we aren’t streaming shows and movies, we will stream music from Music Unlimited, use our personal photos as screensavers or will look up videos on youtube. The Fire Stick is currently marked down to $29.99 but the price is subject to change.
Our Casio CT-X700 is a fun Father’s Day gift idea! Both my husband and I enjoy playing the piano with our kiddos and attempting to teach them to play. The Casio CT-X700 is a family friendly electric piano.The piano has over 600 tones to choose from, hundreds of built in rhythms and 100 built in songs. The Casio CT-X700’s Step-Up Lesson system, help you and your family easily learn the songs, with the display showing proper fingering and notation. The piano can even connect to a Mac, PC, Android or iOS device via the USB-MIDI port.
This year’s main Father’s Day gift for my husband is this Casio PRG650Y-1 watch. My husband’s old watch just died and he has been looking for a durable watch that he can wear when working out, traveling and also when he is at important business meetings locally. This watch is great because it looks good with any outfit. The PRG650 line of Protrek watches have a new night safari concept. The outside of the band and the face of the model is black. This watch comes with DURA-SOFT bands. The inside of the band is luminescent, so it emits a faint glow during night activities. Function-wise, it is equipped with Neon Illuminator to provide easy reading of the time and function modes, even in the dark. Other basic functions include Triple Sensor (bearing, altitude/barometric pressure, temperature), one-touch measurement button, Tough Solar, and more. Movable lug components add to a better fit and more comfort.
If you know our family, you know two things – we use essential oils (topically and via our diffusers) every day and we use sound machines every night. When we first got married, my husband would use a large fan every night – not to stay cool but to have the background noise of a fan. Since having kiddos, we’ve become used to hearing our children’s sound machines in our baby monitors every night. This new HoMedics SoundSpa® Slumber Scents takes care of both diffusing essential oils AND with an alarm clock AND with a sound spa. The SoundSpa Slumber Scents is Bluetooth® Technology enabled! Or you can use one of the pre-loaded 6 different relaxation and nature sounds. The ultrasonic aroma diffuser delivers a fine mist of natural aromas and has a light show with the 6 LED program options.
