Father's Day is next week: Are you ready?

I'm sort of ready. Husband dropped a few hints, I talked to Amigo and La Petite, and we ordered something fun.

MomCentral knows that Moms often pick up the task of gift shopping, no matter what the holiday. I'm still looking over their connections (a.k.a. Mom Central Father's Day Gift Guide) for ideas, just in case my order doesn't arrive in time.

They offer suggestions and links for gifts in various price ranges. I'm a bargain shopper, but I do check the higher priced options for good quality purchases. Frugal doesn't have to mean cheap.

Husband is a beer man: maybe one of these gift baskets would be good for him. Steak brands? Well, maybe.
This parking aid would be better for my minivan than his car; ever since we lost the tennis ball that hung from the garage ceiling, I've been estimating exactly where to stop. Chocolate? Again, that's more for me.
For the outdoorsman dads, this tent (by Jeep!) looks fun. But if dad's outdoor fun is limited to the backyard and the grill, this chair is still cool.

None of these top the actual gift we have for the Dad in our house. I still plan to stop by the site for their daily giveaways, though. My brother and Husband's brother both have birthdays coming up, and there's always the hidden Christmas gift closet.

MomCentral does not pay an affiliate fee or a bonus for posts like this one. I like MomCentral, and I get a great deal of pleasure from doing book reviews for their site. Don't worry, faithful readers, this is not a paid post. Not at all.

I always get my hubby books--and my dad too. Rather sad...my last father's day shopping at Conkey's.

I'm ready because it's my birthday! I was born on Father's Day, so it's pretty cool when it happens that way (which isn't often)....
