My Favorite Gift Idea for Guys

• 11 June 2012



If you're looking for a birthday or father's day gift for your man--one that he will love and one that will evoke surprise--then this may be what you're looking for.  A t-shirt reflecting your love for him!  A couple of years ago I had this one made for my husband and wore it to a birthday party I hosted for him at our home.  He was so happy when I walked in wearing my new "I love Ben" tee and I could tell it made his night based on the ear-to-ear grin on his face.  A little thoughtfulness goes a long way~

You can have one made online, or at your local embroidery/silk screening shop, depending on your time table and budget.  I opted for a more fitted top, versus the usual baggy/boxy sports tee shirts that aren't flattering on anyone.  And although it's shrunk over time, the husband hasn't complained (I can't ever seem to remember to take anything out of the dryer!).  Looking back I wish I'd made more of an effort to find a better font for the tee; hopefully you can find something a bit more stylish :)

These days the tee is usually nestled in with my pajamas, but it makes me smile every time I wear it and I have thought many a time how this was perhaps my greatest gift purchase yet.  In fact, since it's Father's Day on Sunday, I think I just may have to whip it out again!

Too cute! My hubs would love this. You could also make it with a freezer paper stencil - I just used one on a canvas bag yesterday.

This is such a great idea! I'll have to remember it for next year's Father's Day. :-)
