Thanks to BabbleBoxx for teaming up with me today for this sponsored post about what dad really wants for Father’s Day.
If you asked me what I want for Father’s Day, I could probably answer you in under two seconds: Time with my family.
Do you ever notice that holidays have become so much more than what they are intended for? Father’s Day should be just what it sounds like: a day for fathers to be fathers… to spend time with their kids.
Yes, it would be nice to know that I can take a nap if I want to, or not worry about the yard work for that day, but in the end- time with family is what it’s about. We don’t need to make such big productions of things.
That’s the funny thing about Becky and I. We have been together since we were in our early teens…
So if I know anything about her, I know that she and I are similar in the way of gifts. We both like things that bring us time with family, which is why I loved her gift for me this year from the kids (wait until you see #1 below!)
This year, Becky had the kids paint pictures for me and answer questions about their favorite thing to do when we spend time together. She also ordered a BabbleBoxx. It was the Perfect Gifts For Dads and Grads Babbleboxx.. and it really is filled with perfect gifts. It’s like it was made for me: a little practical, a little out of the box… and a lot of surprises (just like Fatherhood!)
Here’s what was inside:
1. Tickets to the 2019 U.S. Open U.S. Open Golf at Pebble Beach
Since tickets officially go on sale on June 11th, we are thrilled about the U.S. Open Tickets! TheU.S. Open Championship is conducted by the United States Gold Association (USGA) and it is going to be amazing.
Just the thought of the world’s best golfers coming together in one place, to converge and vie to win the coveted U.S. Open Trophy is an amazing thought. It is again hosted by ®Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, California. I like that the history of the U.S. Open is deeply tied to Father’s Day… what a great way to spend a day, enjoying the championship with family.
TIP: Since tickets tend to go fast, be one of the first ones to grab your tickets, starting at $60 on June 11th. This is certainly a ‘bucket list’ item and the perfect way to spend time with family.
As the leading destination for family history research and DNA testing, MyHeritage offers the best price & leading technology. Plus, they are running a sale until June 17th where they are only $59. I am interested in this because I’ll find my DNA matches, like second, third and fourth cousins, as well as other family relationships found through Smart Matches & Instant Discoveries. It also gives you your Ethnicity Estimate, which will let me know which portion of my DNA is estimated to originate from.
As you see in the picture above, the DNA Testing Kit comes in a premium package with an instruction manual, serial number to activate the kit on the website, a cheek swab, a vial for the sample, a clear plastic bag for the vial and a self-addressed envelop to make the mailing of the sample to the lab as easy as can be.
I am so interested to find out if what we think is true about our heritage.

3. Hanes UltimateTM Men’s Comfort Flex Fit® Ultra Soft Boxer Briefs & Hanes UltimateTM Men’s Comfort Fit White Crewneck Undershirt
There is nothing like comfort and Hanes UltimateTM Comfort Fit delivers it. Hanes UltimateTM Men’s Comfort Flex Fit® Ultra Soft Boxer Briefs are made from cotton/modal so they are comfortable all day long, with FreshIQTM advanced odor protection technology. It wicks away moisture to keep you cool and dry. The best part is the no ride-up leg & the soft Comfort Flex® waistband.

Hanes UltimateTM Men’s Comfort Fit White Crewneck Undershirt is just as comfortable and made from the same material. It has a lay flat collar to keep its shape & has the same Cool Comfort wicking fabric to keep you cool.
4. A Tie.
Everyone loves a nice tie and Ties.com has one for every interest. Dressing well doesn’t have to be boring when you add in some personality to your style. I could wear my Jules Tie with any outfit because it is a bold style that gives plaid a good name. It’s cotton & the standard 3.25 width. Men’s Ties make a great Father’s Day Gift.

5. Cold Brew Coffee Kit
If you’ve never brewed your own Grady’s Cold Brew, you’re in for a treat. It just got that much easier thanks to the new ultramodern “Pour and Store” Pouch. You just add water for 36 cups of iced coffee (for less than $1 a cup)! Let the Bean Bags—literally, bags with ground coffee beans, chicory, and spices—soak overnight in water. When you wake up, remove the bags from the pouch and toss. It’s that simple. Plus, you can have it for days to come, because the coffee stays fresh for two weeks after brewing. Then, just rinse & reuse the pouch.
Secret Recipe for Success: Mix one part Grady’s + one part milk (or water for black coffee) = total perfection.

6. Black Clover Hat
You know I like the Black Clover Hat, with the clover on the front and the motto “Live Lucky” on the side. This Premium headwear is just like life should be: extremely comfortable, high-quality, living in the moment, unforgettable.
