What To Get A Picky Man For Father's Day (+ $300 Gift Card Giveaway To My Gift Stop!)

This post was written in collaboration with My Gift Stop, but my opinions are my own.







Father's Day is coming, and I have no idea what to get my husband. He's a difficult man to shop for. I ask what he wants, and he's all, "Surprise me." It's irritating, but he does a lot for his family. And the kids adore him.




Natalie, especially. She's a total Daddy's girl. Although it might get tricky when she starts to date.





I need to get him something spectacular. Something that says, "Thank you for all you do." Thankfully there's My Gift Stop, an online shop that has luxury goods. With each sale they make, they donate 5% to the global medical relief nonprofit, Direct Relief.

You can buy all sorts of fabulous last minute gifts from watches to handbags to shoes at great prices for men and women. If for some reason you do not like something you order, you can easily return it.

I was impressed by the items My Gift Stop had and decided to make a list of gift ideas for Father's Day if you have a picky guy like I do.



1. A Citizen's Men's Chronograph Watch. My Gift Stop has tons of choices. I'm pretty sure my husband will love this style.



I know people are all, "Why do you need a watch when your phone tells the time?" but my husband is at work sometimes and isn't allowed to pull out his phone. He needs an easy way to know what time it is.



2. Oakley Sunglasses. My husband goes through sunglasses a lot since he's always moving around in his job. He's always loved Oakleys. They hold up well! These are under $200 which is a great deal!





3. Cologne. There's a variety of colognes from Calvin Klein to Ralph Lauren to BURBERRY, which is what I'd want to give to my husband. I like him to smell good.





Even better, this is currently on sale with the coupon code DADGRAD31 for only $21.99!



4. Writing instruments. My husband always needs to have a pen on hand when he's at work. He's forever signing things. Or filling papers out. I like this S.T. Dupont Ballpoint Pen. It looks sleek and manly.




There are many more options at My Gift Stop!

And even better? You can win a $300 Gift Card to My Gift Stop.

Enter here!

Good luck!




I can't wait to surprise my husband with an amazing gift on Father's Day, because he truly does deserve it.


What are you planning on getting your father or husband for Father's Day?

Cool Things About Military Kids

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 1 Natural Way, a TRICARE breast pump provider. All opinions are entirely my own.



Being a military kid is pretty cool. I know for a fact because I was one. I got to live all over the world. Now my kids get to do the same. Oh sure, some might argue that it's a tough life because the kids always have to move, and it's true. I remember shedding tears when I had to leave my friends behind, but I always adapted.

My children are proud to be military kids.






There are many reasons why military kids are cool, and here are some of them:






1. Military kids can get a Tricare breast pump through 1 Natural Way. Well. Their parents can. But the pump will benefit them, obviously.



It's pretty cool, because 1 Natural Way has a bunch of the popular breast pumps such as the Medela, Spectra, and Kiinde brands. I personally used the Medela one, and I loved it.

You can get a TRICARE breast pump in less than FIVE minutes, which is a plus, because after you've had a baby, you're exhausted, so you want things to move quickly.

As I mentioned before, the Tricare insurance plan covers the breast pumps. There is no out of pocket expense for you. You can get ANY of the models! Plus, 1 Natural Way also has breast pump accessories, compression socks, and supplies you might need after having a baby. It's amazing how many things you need after you have one of these. Thank goodness they are cute.





2. They feel pride in their family.





I know my kids are proud of their father. They understand that sometimes he has to go away for a bit, but it's because he's helping to keep his country safe.



3. Military kids have friends all over the world! It's pretty neat. Some might not even be American. When I lived in Belgium, I had some Belgian friends. Tommy had a British friend when we were in England.


4. Most military kids will be able to adapt to changes easily. This is an important lesson when they get older. I know it helped me a lot. When my husband comes home and says, "Hey, I'm deploying next month!" it's tough, but I can handle it. Military life is always changing. You never know what's around the corner.





5. As I mentioned above, military kids get to travel the world! I got to live in New Jersey, Italy, Germany, California, Belgium, and Massachusetts. My kids got to live in Nebraska, England, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Texas. It's always fun to learn about different cultures. I can't imagine staying in one place my entire life.







Yes. There are many reasons why military kids are cool. They go through all sorts of changes. They get to have amazing experiences in other countries. There are many goodbyes.





But there are also many hellos. And most military kids wouldn't have it any other way.

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.





Hey, It's Okay....





....to have only watched bits and pieces of the royal wedding. I caught it on repeat but it got rather boring at parts, so I read.



....to be ready for Bruce Wayne to turn into Batman on Gotham. I think that'll happen next season. (The final season! Boo!)



....to be sad that The Middle is over. It was such a hilarious show!




....to also be bummed that most of my shows have ended for the season. What do I watch now? I guess Little Women: LA.




....to love all the Mickey stuff that Target has out. I love this bottle. Have you seen the Mickey items yet?
