Father's Day gift ideas- with $50 RedEnvelope giveaway (closed)!

Congrats to my winner: kolpin
 
It's hard to believe how fast this year is hurtling past- it's Memorial Day weekend already! Wow! And Father's Day is just three weeks away, so if you haven't thought of a great gift for the special dad in your life, you need to get busy! Recently, thanks to RedEnvelope, I got to do a little Father's Day shopping for my husband, Daniel. 

RedEnvelope has been a favorite site of mine for years- I love all the gorgeous and unique gifts that they have to offer.  There was only one big challenge for me with this review- staying focused on gifts for Daniel! The pages of gifts for women kept calling me with pictures of beautiful jewelry and home accessories.  I'm going to definitely be bookmarking RedEnvelope and directing Daniel there in the future for when it's time to shop for my gifts :)

Eventually I did manage to focus on Father's Day ideas and got down to the browsing.  I really appreciated how organized the RedEnvelope site is. It's easy to find lists of gift ideas for dads, with divisions by "type" of dad. Do you have a sports fan to shop for? They have lists for that. Is he a gadget guru? That's covered too, as are a number of other categories. You can also see lists of bestselling gift ideas or look through categories of gifts.  Another nice feature of the RedEnvelope site is that there are user reviews for most of the products, so you can get some real world input before buying.

I was tempted by several items, like the Sliders Mini-Burger Set:

And the Root Beer and Snack Sampler:

And the Car Trunk Organizer & Cooler:


In the end, I decided to get this Picnic Backpack for Daniel, since it got great reviews and looks like something that will be very handy for our family outings this summer.
I'm so excited about this and can't wait to give it to him on Father's Day!

I love RedEnvelope and had such a fun time looking at all the great gift ideas on the site.  Definitely make a stop there when you start your Father's Day shopping!  If you become a fan of the RedEnvelope Facebook page, you'll get 20% off your order at RedEnvelope.

And, I have great news for you guys! I am giving away a $50 gift certificate to RedEnvelope! Open to US mailing addresses only, please.

My husband's been wanting a wireless talking oven & BBQ thermometer for a while now. At first I thought it was silly, but now I see it could come in really handy! It would be really nice to throw something on the grill, sit on the couch, and have it tell you when the burgers are done! Hope I win! :) :) :)
