Every year, I forget Mother’s Day until it’s too late.
Father’s Day I usually remember.
This evening I was driving my children to Little League and I said to my wife, “Is Father’s Day this Sunday?”
“Yep,” she said.
I’m sure there are people out there who are in the same boat as me. Back in the day, I’d be scrambling for a fishing lure or work shirt.
Today, though, I don’t need to go anywhere. I can buy my Dad a gift right here at the keyboard.
So, if you read this and find yourself in the same boat as me, you’re in luck, because I’m about to list off eight different gifts you can get your father for Father’s Day without leaving the keyboard.
Starting with something manly.
A Manly Book
I make bracelets with my son.
I know that doesn’t sound like a “manly” hobby, but it is.
We make them using parachute cord, or paracord. Take a length of paracord, depending on the size of your wrist, tie a few knots, and BOOM!
Now that’s manly.
However, you can’t download the paracord.
You can’t download the buckles or the flint and steel.
But you can download the ebook Manly Crafts.
I know what you’re thinking.
“Manly Crafts?” That’s an oxymoron.
Well, here’s the first manly craft in the book.
And turn it into this:
The best part, aside from the time you’ll spend with your dear old dad working on the project in this book, is that the book’s less than a dollar.
There are tons of cheap ebooks out there for Father’s Day. Get your dad a couple.
