Saturday Sampler: Father's Day Gift Ideas

I know it seems like we just had Mother's Day, but somehow, it's nearly a month later, and Father's Day is just around the corner. Not sure what to give dad? A few ideas:

June's not exactly the month for knitwear, but it will get cold again eventually. And everyone needs slippers. These knit up quickly with bulky yarn, and make a fun felting project.

Or maybe a hat. This one, Windschief, is on my "to knit" list, and should be another quick knit, in worsted weight.

Or, maybe you prefer to not drive yourself crazy with last minute knitting, and plan to buy a gift. Good idea.

Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker

CP has expressed interest in an ice cream maker. Because we don't have enough kitchen gadgets that we only use twice a year. And clearly, we need to be able to make lucuma ice cream.

If you have kids, grandparents seem to enjoy nothing more than photos of them, and Shutterfly has a lot of great photo gifts available. They ship fast, too.

Or maybe dad would like an easy way to fit in his workout, and bring the kid(s) along--or maybe YOU would like that. Either way. JJ is still too little for this, so CP will probably get it for Christmas instead.

And if you have a Crumbs bake shop in your neighborhood, I highly recommend purchasing some cupcakes (or a colossal cupcake) as a Father's Day treat. I'm sure dad will share.
