Father's Day Gift Guide

Got a Millennial Dad in your life? Here's a gift guide to help you out with Father's Day this year! Also, just a friendly reminder, NEXT SUNDAY IS FATHER'S DAY. You're welcome.



  1. TRUTH. You're welcome. Lol. (etsy)
  2. This is a nice gift that looks beautiful and can carry a beautiful sentiment. Get the night sky from the night your child was born. (etsy)
  3. Mr. LL does almost all of the cooking in our house, so getting a Home Chef box might be a nice change of pace (and perhaps a little easier on me since I do all the grocery shopping). (Home ChefBONUS: Enjoy 3 Free Meals with Home Chef! Click here!)
  4. How about a new book to read? Maybe Robin by Dave Itzkoff: "From New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff, the definitive biography of Robin Williams – a compelling portrait of one of America’s most beloved and misunderstood entertainers." (Target)
  5. My husband loves him a good loafer, so I know these will always be a hit with him. (DSWBONUS: Up to 50% off Men's Clearance. Click here.)
  6. One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is that Mr. LL leaves his headsets (SETS, YES PLURAL) on my computer desk! Well, now he can use this really cool stand and keep his sh** on his desk. I mean, "Love you! Happy Father's Day!" (etsy)

Lazy Baby: Turning 1! The Gifts.

Last week I shared the theme for Lazy Baby's first birthday; this week, I'm sharing some FIRST BIRTHDAY GIFT IDEAS! We won't be getting her all of these, but they are definitely things that I want to give LB when I can.

  1. Melissa & Doug® Classic Wooden Toy Bundle - Pound-A-Peg, Stack and Sort Board - LB loves to bang on things, so the peg table will be a hit, plus the stack board is great too because she's just figuring out stacking things! (Target)
  2. Melissa & Doug® Around the House Sound Puzzle - LB has a couple of wooden puzzles, but it's hard for her little fingers to get the pieces out, so I want to get her one with pegs. I like this one, a lot because it also shows the inside of the house and the people in it. (Target)
  3. Play Kitchen - This is what we are (probably) actually getting LB for her birthday. Play kitchens can get real expensive, real fast; and although I really wanted to get her a wooden one, this one is more affordable and I like it. We wanted to get her something that she would play with for years to come, so this is an investment in our eyes. (Target)
  4. Melissa & Doug® Let's Play House! Dust, Sweep & Mop - I know this looks weird, but I am getting this for LB one way or another because I want LB to not loathe the idea of cleaning in the future. It all goes back the Montessori-esque things I am trying to do with her. (Target)
  5. New PJs - These are just too freakin' cute. Plus, she hates the footies in her footie pjs so these are a good compromise in my opinion. BONUS FOR YOU! Save 20% on pure organic cotton #hannajams, including new arrivals! With warm summer nights just around the corner, it’s time to stock up on short johns in cool, comfy cotton. Valid through 5/6/18. (Hanna Anderrson)
  6. Wooden Building Blocks - LB already has small, alphabet wooden blocks, but I think she'd like these bigger building blocks down the road. (Target)

Gifts for him

It's Mr. LL's birthday this Friday and I thought I'd do a little gift guide with him in mind. If you have a nerdy, artsy, gamer, handy-man in your life, then here are some ideas what to get him.



  1. We just watched The Last Jedi a few weeks ago (having a baby makes it hard to catch movies in the theaters). I think my Imperial love would like this Funko POP. (Target)
  2. Also, we've started to watch a few of those drone tricks, VR, POV videos and I think Mr. LL would be into giving it a shot. So this Racing Drone set is on the list. (Target)
  3. Mr. LL loves him a good snapback, and it's about time for a new one. I think this Merci Bien snapback is cool, so maybe he will too? (Studio Ceizer)
  4. Even though Mr. LL plays Imperial in all the video games (SWG-what what?!), I know there's a place in his heart for Solo. So, why not get him a Saint Han Solo prayer candle? (Etsy)
  5. We like to collect unique taxidermy (no deer heads for us, thanks) and have long since established that a snake skeleton is next on our list of pieces to acquire. (Etsy)
