Father’s Day Gift Guide

Hey Cats!

Did anyone else have a rough time getting going this week? Because I did. I was nearly late to work yesterday because I was being a slowpoke and just wanted to crawl back in bed. It also didn’t help that I couldn’t decide what to wear, and tried on about four different outfits before I gave up because I had five minutes to do my hair and makeup. Hashtag Monday. But it’s Tuesday and I went to bed super early last night, so I should have it together today, but stay tuned.

As do all important holidays, Father’s Day snuck up on me this year. Did you know it’s June 22? It is. That’s a little under 3 weeks from now… yikes! Also, my dad’s birthday is the 24th, so I’m probably just going to order both gifts at the same time. My dad and I are besties, and I always like to get him something special, and now that I actually have a job, I can buy him something a little nicer than a belt or a tie. Here are a few things I’m considering:

fishing-shirt

Dads love fishing shirts, like this Columbia shirt from Academy.  I would totally get my dad one of these, but he has like, at least five. I know he would probably love another one, but I think this is what I’ve gotten him for the past couple of years. I think dads like these because they can wear them basically anywhere. To the lake, to a football game, or even a casual dinner. I mean, I even have a couple myself. Everyone loves these. Buy matching ones for you and your dad for extra points.

boot-bag

My dad has quite the collection of boots, something we have in common. We all hate traveling with boots, because they take up so much space, and if they get dirty (which is inevitable), you don’t want to put them back in your suitcase. If your dad likes to lug his Luccheses whenever he goes on a trip, this boot bag from Jon Hart is an excellent choice. You can even personalize it, which if you think I love monogramming my own objects, imagine how much I love monogramming gifts for others…about 5x as much.

SCHEDULE.0

Another great option is football tickets, or tickets to another sporting event. My parents have season tickets to Aggie games, but I am considering getting my dad tickets to a Rice game (not sure if my dad reads my blog, but if he does I may have just ruined the surprise. So oops.), since he played football at Rice, and now that I live in Houston, it would be an easy trip!

My dad is a real estate agent, so he always carries business cards. I’ve almost bought him this business card case from Marley Lilly three different times, but I always run out of time to order it! I think it would be a good way for him to keep track of his cards when he’s out and about!

What are you thinking about getting your dad for father’s day? Let me know!

That’s all for meow!

On The Hunt: The Perfect Tote Bag

Hey Cats!

I’ve decided to skip Friday’s Five this week, partly because I didn’t do anything super interesting, and partly because I feel like the blog needs some variety. I’ve been doing a lot of link lists lately, and I feel like my content needs to be a bit more creative! Wish me luck!

I found out the hard way (through a parking ticket) that transportation services does indeed patrol the parking lot by my office, and unfortunately it’s too late for me switch out my parking pass. So I have to park in my usual lot and walk to the bus, which takes me to my building. It’s not ideal, but it’s just like walking to class so it’s nothing I’m not used to, and it will be good exercise! This means that if I want to wear heels to the office, like I’m planning on doing today, I’ll have to wear flats and change on the bus. I also carry my lunch, water bottle, and purse, which is quite a handful. So now I’m on the hunt for a cute tote bag to throw everything in!  Here are a few options I’m considering:

jon hart

 

I’ve always, always loved Jon Hart totes- they’re classic, durable, and personalized. I’m thinking about the Petite Left Bank in Black, Red, Burgundy, or Navy.

vera

 

I’m also considering Vera Bradley’s Vera tote in Venetian Paisley, one of my newest favorite prints. I love this one because it’s roomy, washable, and fun!

barrington

 

This Barrington St. Anne tote combines what I love about the Jon Hart and Vera Bradley options- durable and personalized with a fun pattern. They also have Game Day totes in Aggie Maroon- bonus!

marley lilly tote

Marley Lilly’s Essential Tote is also a high contender. I love the monogram, obviously, and it’s very affordable! I’m thinking about a black bag with a gold circle block monogram.

There’s just so many options that I can’t decide! Which one would you pick and why? Let me know!

That’s all for meow!
