Ugh my husband is SO hard to shop for. There’s not a lot he wants, and when he does, he buys it. Unless it’s thousands of dollars, in which case I’m not prepared to spend right now. 🙂 So I need inspiration! What are you getting your SO for Father’s Day, both from yourself and/or from your children?

ArmyWifey8.23: My FI is not a dad yet, but he’s the same way!!
I always skim Groupon or Living Social for inpiration. Whether it’s a trip or a voucher for something, they have cool stuff. What does he do? I’m assuming he’s in the army? I like to get my FI gift cards for restaurant’s he frequents near work so it compels him to get out of the office from time to time.

He is in the Army, yes. Unfortunately he’s no good at using gift cards. The last one I got him for a golf course (his FAVORITE past time) has gone unused for a year – it was part of last year’s FD gift – despite my frequent urging for him to use it. I attempted to plan a weekend trip to the ocean this past weekend for his birthday this week, but instead after I mentioned going (had to make sure he wasn’t working as his job is very last minute) he went ahead and booked the hotel without my knowing and proceeded to pay for everything even though I kept pleading with him not to (we have separate “spending” bank accounts) so it ended up being him treating me to a weekend at the ocean! Do you see where I’m having a tough time? Lol.

I have no idea. He’s a father, but his children aren’t mine and they don’t live with us. His kids are cute, but I hardly know them and their mom isn’t my biggest fan. I wasn’t even sure if it would be appropriate for me to celebrate Father’s Day with him as it feels like it isn’t really my place. I would gladly participate in something initiated by his ex, but I’m sure that won’t be happening. Actually, I have a feeling that the only way he’ll get any acknowledgement on the day at all is if I provide it, but I have no idea what to do! I’ve asked him multiple times what he wants and he says “IDK” or “nothing,” but I know he’s lying. Sigh.
I don’t want to do a weekend away, because I don’t want to take him away from the phone in case his kids call. I try not to cook a meal on special occasions because my husband is bluntly critical of my cooking and I’ll just cry if he says “I like the skin on my roasted chicken a little crispier than this.” IDK, maybe I’ll just buy something generic on Amazon. Smh.

I made him a card and got him a nice belt he’s been wanting, we’re expecting later this summer.

A train horn for his car. Lmao. We have a tradition of really silly gifts for Father’s Day. Last year it was a USB coffee warmer for his office.
