Let me make shopping for the dad in your life easy this year, by hooking you up with this ultimate Father’s Day gift guide. Is the special daddy in your life super hard to shop for?

My husband is extremely picky, so much so that even after having been  married for 4 yrs, I still have to get a gift receipt just in case he happens not to like any gifts I buy him.


I swear he’s part of the 3% of the entire male population that is nearly impossible to shop for. 🙂

With the help of my picky husband, I came up with some fantastic gift ideas for 6 types of dads. If he approves of it, I’m positive the other 97% of men will too!

From the new dad who is freaking out about the impending arrival of his first baby, to the dad who will drive miles just to find the perfect BBQ sauce to go with his famous T-bone steakWe’ve got you covered.

So without further due, here is the ultimate Father’s Day gift guide!
