#DontForgetDads. One of my favorite hashtags I have seen as of late. In this new world of motherhood, we easily get caught up in the mama and baby relationship and all of the newness, emotions, and comfort it brings (who can blame us?). Unfortunately, Dad can catch the dreaded third wheel syndrome. Long gone are the days when Dad took a hands-off approach, never changing a diaper or helping with those midnight feedings.

I am so thankful for my husband who has never once been afraid of a dirty diaper. He has been the rock that our family has held on to, helping us all stay afloat in this season of life. I want to ensure he knows how much he is loved by his girls this Father's Day, and every day of the year.

I've put together a few items sure to make the Dad(s) in your life feel extra special!

Gift Guide for Dad

Espresso Maker. This 6-cup espresso maker by Bialetti has a sleek, yet rugged design that your man won't feel embarrassed to use. I would happily scooch the Kitchen Aid aside to make room for this sucker.

Pillow. No butts about it, this People I've Loved pillow is perfect for the man cave.

Hammock. I can attest to these Yellow Leaf Hammocks. They are AMAZING. Extremely soft and weatherproof, you can snuggle up with your entire family - comfortably!

Cooler. It's no secret Yeti is the king of coolers. We love our Roadie version, but I am loving this portable, soft-sided Hopper. Perfect for an easy afternoon at the beach, fishing, or camping.

Timepiece. I recently discovered these beautiful timepieces by MMT. Minimalist design with a super cool pocket watch option.

Bluetooth Speaker. Hands down, Fugoo has the best waterproof, shock and sand-proof speaker with incredible 360 degree sound - all without sacrificing design!

Pin. I found E W McCall through Instagram, and I couldn't be more obsessed with these handmade leather lapel pins. A fun addition to a suit, bag, or plain tee.

Reusable Water Bottle. I am a huge fan of S'well reusable bottles, made entirely from stainless steel and keeps water cold for 24 hours. This onyx black has a stone-like texture and is every ounce manly.

Espadrilles. I love the espadrille brand Soludos. They come in a variety of styles and colors, and are a fantastic price point. This men's lace-up version is a perfect lightweight version for summer.
