An Ode to Dads

Keanna and I are not fathers, but we both have amazing Dads. Our dads taught us how to ride a bike, how to save for retirement, and how to treat women (or how a man should treat her in Keanna’s case). Like our mamas, we owe them the world. But the world is expensive. Plus, if your dad is like mine, he would be annoyed if you spend too much since he knows what is in your savings down to the penny. So what are we to do at Christmas?? 

Our Dads are the embodiment of “it is the thought that counts,” ie the amount spent on the gift matters far less than its’ usefulness.

We collected many items on Pinterest and are still adding more. We picked the best gifts and listed below. These are either: gifts we have given to our fathers, things our dads love, or special items that special men in our lives love….
