Last Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas

Watching my husband with our daughter melts my heart. The two have a bond that is extremely special. He sure loves that little girl. From late night feedings and messy diaper changes to watching sports and swimming lessons, years from now I look forward to showing Morley all of the moments her and her dad shared. 

My husband doesn't get the credit he deserves for being an amazing husband and extremely supportive partner. Just because I’m the mom doesn’t mean I’m the parenting leader - we’re on equal footing here. While he should be celebrated every. single. day. for being a great husband and amazing father, I am so excited to be able to dedicate this Sunday, his first Father's Day, solely to him.

Did you know that on July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day"? Surprisingly enough, it is older than Mother's Day, which didn't become an official holiday until 1972. Today, economists estimate that Americans spend more than $1 billion each year on Father’s Day gifts!
