For the SPORTS Dad:

Buy him tickets to a game

My husband is a sports guy. He loves, loves, LOVES the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams. It is always so much fun to watch his eyes light-up whenever he has the opportunity to attend a game; like this one between the Cardinals and Yankees on Memorial Day at Bush Stadium.bush stadium

Through the years I have surprised him with several different things related to the Cardinals… such as a Cardinal watch, several Cardinal themed pictures, tee-shirts, and even an autographed baseball by Yadier Molina.

For the OUTDOOR Dad: 

Make wall art out of one of their favorite outdoor photos

Last fall my sons, Isaac and Ben, went on a mini-vacation together. They met up and went camping in the Grand Canyon. They had a blast! Of course they took a bunch of super neat photos. Ben recently told me that he had a canvas print made out of one of the panoramic pictures he had taken while in the canyon. He had a quote placed at the top of the canvas and it has become a very personal work of art.panoramic grand canyon

Buy them outdoor / hunting / sports gear.

Since my son, Isaac, and his wife like to camp, they often times receive camping equipment for gifts. One Christmas, Isaac received a cast-iron cooking skillet that they use to cook their meals over an open fire.

Last year, my son Ben, uploaded a bunch of old photos from my Dad. They were pictures of my Dad when he was in the Air Force. Ben made a collage of these photos and then turned several of them into a canvas print through Shutterfly and gave it to my Dad as a gift. Needless to say, my Dad loves it and what a thoughtful and personalized gift!air force college
Last year my daughter, Anna, gave her husband, Seth, a triple picture frame with a picture of him and each of their 3 children when they were a baby.

For the Dad who likes to travel:

surprise him with a trip to visit a brewery or winery

Many brewery’s and winery’s give tours.  Some tours are free, or there may be a minimal cost, and usually they have a taste sampling at the end of the tour.



A lot of guys like history so why not take a road trip and visit a few historical places?

You can find all kinds of wonderful museums across this country. I have personally been to many different kinds, such as Art, Sports, Historical, Music, Car, Presidential and many, many more. I have even been to a Miniature Museum where everything was super tiny. So many great places to visit.



Take Dad on a relaxing drive through the countryside and stop and visit unique sites, shops and eating places.
