Father's Day Gift Guide

eBayDad-e1401935810418.jpg

This post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay. The week before Mother's Day, I had a conversation with a guy friend who literally called me and said the following words "what do I get for my wife? And go!"

Upon lots of questions (and his refusal to buy the high tech gadgets y'all know I recommend), I tried to get to the bottom of things "do you think she'd like this? What about that?". Ten minutes into it and we start to argue. He had in fact already gotten her something but wanted add on gifts (which isn't bad). Then he says "I only get socks and underwear for Father's Day".

And that stopped me in my tracks. Let me just say I'm pretty sure he's having selective memory on this as I know his wife. But I was sad to hear that he hasn't been wowed by any Father's Day gifts.

Enter my collections thanks to the eBayDad gift guide.

I love gadgets. Love giving them and love receiving them. Here are some gadgets the man in your life will appreciate.

Nokia Lumia 1020

If this phone was a bike, it would be a Ducati. Not that I want you to ever get a bike for your man but, you get the drift. You will also get awesome images with this little bad boy.

Dad will appreciate being connected and having his documents always in hand (like the grocery list you can share with him in OneNote).

 

Xbox One

Okay, I think that this would be a great gift for me but, if you must get dad a gaming system then this is the thing for you. Again, I'm thinking this will give you multi-use at home (you can do your Jillian Michaels work out on this thing!). Not that dad has to share his gifts but I think it's a good compromise for him to get this in your living room.

Beats Studio Headphones

These are great for home or work. He can chillax in front of the computer or the flat screen and take in a movie while you yell and scream at the kids. Or vice versa. Again, versatile!

 

I have more gadgets over in my I Love It When You Call Me Tech Papa collection. Feel free to check it out for more memorable gifts for dad.

And also, because I shop for my own dad on Father's Day, you can check out my Para Papi collection. It mostly consists of clothing. My mom always shopped for his clothes. And at the risk of hearing my dad sound like my friend, he really does need clothes. His new wife doesn't know how to dress herself let alone dress him. So, it's up to me to keep him in the comfy and age appropriate clothes Mami got him accustomed to.

eBay is all about equal opportunity so now you can create your own #eBayDad collection and enter for a chance to win $500 to shop on eBay. That means you can shop for more dad gifts! And a little something for yourself.

Okay so tell me, what are you getting the dad in your life for Father's Day?

Deck the Halls

eBay_Christmas I am starting to feel it. That little kid excitement . Did you guys ever feel like the entire year culminated at Christmas? I sure did.

So of course, I am thinking about properly accessorizing my lawn. I mean really, what better than a lit up lawn complete with blow up Grinch/Santa/Snowman? You can't beat that, folks. Now that I have the girl and she's getting older, I see why lawns sometimes look...gaudy. Can I use that word to describe the mix of decor that I have learned to appreciate throughout the years?

How could I not get this Santa on a hammock being served by penguins? And I've been watching the Grinch these last 11 months so, this 8 foot blow up is right up my alley. Then there's Minnie waving hello. I'm telling you, I gotta have it.

Of course, it's not all about decorations. What will I have under the tree? I've started a collection for girl toys and boy toys since I have kiddos to buy for. And maybe, just maybe, there's a collection (or 8) with a list of things I hope Santa will bring me. Even if he just got me a little something from my watch collection, I'd be thrilled!

Have you started thinking about decking the halls?

From home decor to groovy fashions, I have managed to create ridiculously fabulous collections for myself (and I’m pretty proud of that thankyouverymuch). Be sure to follow along!

Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go blow my last paycheck on some lawn gear.

Scandalous Fashion!

I watch Scandal. I love Scandal. Part of me feels like I shouldn't but, I do. It's only one of two shows that I am committed to watching (Criminal Minds being the other). When the season premier was on a few weeks ago, my Twitter timeline filled up with talk of Olivia's wardrobe. Can you blame them? Olivia Pope is probably the best dressed movie on a TV series (is that an awards category somewhere because if not, it should be!).

Scandalous

I too have been drooling over eyeing Ms. Pope's threads. She is business sophisticated, always. Dressing in shades of white, especially when she's doing good and wearing the "white" hat.

That first episode that showcased her wearing the white workout jacket? Tell me you didn't wonder where she got it from and I'll call you a liar! And what about that double breasted white trench coat? It was everything! After reading approximately seven tweets where people wondered about that jacket, I was inspired to create this collection.

While the twists and turns in the plot definitely keep me tuned in, I am going to confess that the wardrobe eye candy certainly keeps me smiling during the show.  And now, I can infiltrate my own closet with shades of Pope since I know where to get the pieces from.

Tonight is Thursday so it means that it's Gladiator time. I will once again be eyeing Olivia's new digs and making sure my Scandalous Collection is updated appropriately.

From watches to home decor, I have managed to create ridiculously fabulous collections for myself (and I'm pretty proud of that thankyouverymuch). Be sure to follow along!

I will be very busy trying to stop myself from making purchases this Fall lest I cause my own Scandal with my bank account.
