Father's Day, Birthdays, holidays - there are plenty of gift-giving opportunities throughout the year to show the men in your life how special they are!

We (the bloggers here at My Kidz Bookshelf) have no problem finding gifts for one another! We share a lot of the same interests and know what the other one likes! So, nope, gift-giving is never a problem!

But, for the husband/father of the house, that's another story! He has particular tastes - which seem to change with the seasons - and it has taken us a while to finally figure out what gifts he loves!

Now, we didn't stop there. Every guy is different, so we have consulted with and gathered gift-giving intel from a variety of guys - each with their own set of hobbies and interests!

So, given that information, we have focused on those suggestions to get you on your gift-giving way!

You can ask my husband/blogging partner's father what he wants for any holiday or birthday and his number one response is...food!


He loves to eat, he enjoys some special snacks, a good lunch or dinner you name it! From preparing a burger on the grill to heading out for a bite to eat, food is his favorite!

His favorite gift this past year (which was actually a genius discovery by our nephew who did the research and the buying) was a subscription to LOL Jerky. This was a big win in the gift-giving arena!

Does your guy enjoy kicking back and communing with nature? Consider a fire pit, or City Bonfire if in need of a portable fire pit option!

Know a golfer? Who doesn't! It's a popular sport and has a pretty hard-core following!

We have a couple of golfers in our family and I know they love these monogrammed golf balls and enjoy a subscription to magazines like Golf Magazine or Golf Digest.

Golf hand grips are also very popular and useful. Even one of our family members who is not into reading keeps his latest issue of Golf Digest on the living room coffee table!

Have a runner in the family? If the guy you're gift hunting for is one, he'll appreciate a subscription to Runner's World, along with a gift card to a sports store to pick out some running gear.
