Father’s Day has been a tricky holiday for the past few years for me. Not because my husband is particularly difficult to purchase gifts for, but because I always want gifts to be meaningful and special, and when your kids are either not interested in making cute crafts yet, or they throw the adorable book you got across the room (true story). This year I went with different types of gifts, all from Personalization Mall, and all, of course, personalized gifts.
Gifts he’ll use every day
My husband is a practical guy, so naturally, I look around at the things he uses every day or things he maybe needs but doesn’t yet have and go for those first when picking out gifts for him. The very first thing I knew I was going to get him was a new gym bag. True story: Marquis’ current gym bag looks like it’s been through a hurricane and the zipper doesn’t close. Like AT ALL! When I saw this Under Armour Personalized Duffel Bag, I knew it was the perfect thing. It’s super roomy, has a bunch of zippered compartments, and they ALL work! Imagine that! To go into this bag, I also got a new Men’s Signature Embroidered Weekender Travel Case. It’s super roomy and also has separate compartments, which is so great! As you can see, both are personalized – the duffel with his initial and the travel case with his name.
Gifts for work
As an entrepreneur, Marquis does a LOT, and I know note-taking is a big deal for him, as is always making sure he has business cards and all of his tech organized – this guy loves organization. The Executive Tan Leather Personalized Portfolio was the perfect way to make sure he’s taking notes in style and gives him a place to put loose paperwork into as well. To go with that, the Signature Personalized Black Leather Business Card Case is simple, and I had it debossed with his initials. And finally, to keep this techy, ultra-organized guy happy, this Embroidered Tech Organizer was the perfect thing!
And, because we got adorable footage of Marquis opening his gifts with the boys, here’s a closer look at all of these items!
Because Father’s Day and his birthday are so close, Marquis sort of got some compound gifts this year, which means that on top of all of these things, there is a weekend getaway coming his way! Of course, the duffel bag and travel case were kept in mind for this, though he also uses those things in his day to day life.
Gifts of experience
Since he absolutely loves taking the kids to the beach (it also helps we live in a beach town), having a beach blanket that can fir all of us is absolutely key! Personalization Mall had the perfect thing, and we even got the beach towel stakes to go with it! The Stripes Personalized Beach Blanket is honest to goodness HUUUUUUGE (you can see it in the video above). It’s awesome. And so huge that it was hard for me to photograph it, so here’s what it looks like according to this super handy tool called the Exclusive Preview Feature that lets you see exactly what your items will look like:
Having a weekend away, of course, means that I also need to make sure I’m ready, so I took this opportunity to pick up a few things for myself, like the Luxurious Weekender Embroidered Canvas Duffel in grey, the Embroidered Vegan Leather Cosmetic Travel Case in white and, because I’d love to join Marquis more often at the gym, a Bohemian Chic Personalized Yoga Mat with the Yoga Mat Carrying Bag.
