I'm still deciding but thinking a picture of dh and ds on a coffee mug . I have a beautiful pic of them kissing I want to use for something! That and hand prints on paper that I will let ds 16m go nuts on with crayons.
Also from me I will get him some balls that hang from his ute.. Haha do you know them? I actually think they are gross but I know he will like it

I just bought a keyring from eBay- she engraves the image of your bubs feet on it and you can add text too. You just send a scan of bubs feet to her. She's in the uk though so I had to do it today

Hopefully a computer chair but he's so particular I might take him 'surprise' shopping with DD lol. Who is 4 months. This is more a ME present LOL, the squeaking on his current one is driving me batty I'm about to cut it up into small pieces

This year I'm getting him a newer model e-reader (even though his is perfectly fine! But it's what he wants)
The kids (4 and 6 weeks old) are doing hand cand foot prints then framing it for him. DD will also make him something (we have done painted mugs, a place mat, coasters a trinket box etc..)
For his first Father's Day DD was only a couple of days old and I for him a really nice business card holder engraved and a pen.

For DF's first fathers day I got him some beer. There's a company called Brewtopia that make the beer and do personalised labels. I got a picture of DS1 put on the label, and 'Happy First Fathers Day'. DF loved it! They do nice boutique beer too, so it's not like getting him a slab of VB or anything, lol.

My DF wants a dressing gown, so that's what he's getting. Plus some trackie pants for lounging. He never looks warm enough for my liking!

My DP has got a bee in his bonnet about the "commercialism" of Father's Day. I wanted to spoil him for his first last year cause he's an awesome Dad - but I knew if I did he'd just be annoyed at me for spending!
So instead I bought some water based paints, & made a Father's Day card with bubs hand & foot prints on it. He loved it

There's some really cute matching shirts for dad & kids on etsy, I think it would be easy enough to make them yourself if you want to save a few $$$.
Last year I really spoiled DH with something very la di da but I think this year it'll be more low key I'm trying to find a cool personalized lunch box atm.

It is dh first fathers day this year too. Snapfish have a salebon photo gifts.
I have ordered a stubby cooler with a photo of ds and our dog. A wooden photo block with a beautiful photo of dh and ds when he was 3 days old in hospital.
And I also designed a fathers day card with lots of photos on the cover. I put ds in a cute shirt and shorts and did a photo shoot of him and the dog in the sun the other day. Pretty happy with the end product.
Dh wants a gas powered soldering iron so I may get that to go with it but his car is currently broken down in sydney (we live in Brisbane) so kind of waiting to get the bill for it to be fixed before deciding.
Off to check out the matching shirts on etsy.
