#1.  Super Nintendo NES Classic 

10+ Gift Ideas for Dad

Remember the glory days of Mario Cart and Donkey Kong on the Super Nintendo?  Well now you can buy this system with two controllers that is pre-loaded with games.  I got this for Zach last Christmas, and it has been a really fun blast from the past to have “Nintendo nights” with our kids and watch Gracie and Caleb lean with the controllers as they play Mario Cart. Ha.

Kan-Jam has become one of those staple yard games for cookouts, the beach, camping or church picnics.  A year or so ago, Zach got a whole bunch of yard games for when we host picnics and he cooks up 20 pounds of pork or beef in his Weber smoker (keep reading).  *Cute baby not included in the purchase of this product.*

Zach’s parents got into playing pickle ball at their local rec center and enjoyed is so much they bought their own net.  They brought it along to the beach this year, and we played it all week long!

Does he love espresso?  Does he have his own Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts account?  This automatic espresso machine makes one of the yummiest espressos we have ever tasted at the press of a button.  Not only does it makes of shots of espresso with more crema than I ever seen, but it also whips up lattes and cappuccinos – at the press of a button.  If you missed my detailed review of our Lattissima Plus Automatic Espresso Machine then read it here!

#5.  Slim Fit Casual Button Up Long Sleeve Tee

 

This slim fit cotton button up long sleeved t-shirt was less than $20 on Amazon and is one of Zach’s favorites!  It is incredibly soft, not too tight, but not too loose.  He is 6’1″ and about 200 pounds and it fits perfectly.   There are lots of colors to choose from and also comes in short sleeves!

#6.  Dream Pairs Au-Loafer Moccasin Slippers

 

This slipper comes in multiple colors and is very similar in style to the popular UGG slipper but at a third of the price.  We love our slippers around here as we do not have carpet anywhere in our house, and Zach’s slippers are worn daily during the winter!

#7.  Under Amour Golf Pants

10+ Gift Ideas for Dad

These pants have the impressive capability of being comfortable enough for a day of golfing and then dressed up with a coat and tie to attend a wedding.  Zach has no less than 5 pairs of these pants in various colors and wears them probably 4 days a week.  They are perfect for coaching, teaching, Sunday morning and formal occasions.  They are light without being see through and are a testament to the quality and function that Under Armour is famous for.  Zach recommends these pants to everyone and had convinced half of his coaching staff to invest as well!

#9.  GoBena Coffee for Orphans

 

 

Gobena Coffee is a no fail Christmas gift option.  Not only does every purchase support the care of orphans around the world, but the coffee is so good.  I mean really good.  100% win, win.  Merry Christmas.  Amazing coffee.  Amazing cause.   Zach and I liked it so much we stopped using our Keurig on a daily basis and bought a grind and brew coffee maker because the freshly ground whole beans were so good.  Gobena offers organic blends, hazelnut, peppermint vanilla, pumpkin, mocha, espresso, decaf – they have over a dozen varieties available in whole bean, ground and k-cups! I’m off to pour my second cup of coffee . . . (the organic Honduran blend to be specific).

13 years ago an elderly Ethiopian farmer, Gobena, rescued a baby girl who had been abandoned near his home.  Four weeks later Gobena and his wife carried baby Eva 5 miles to a local orphanage where she was later adopted by an American couple, Steve and Danae.  Gobena’s act of love inspired the couple to start Gobena Coffee, providing freshly roasted, ethically sourced coffee from local farmers all around the world.  100% of the profits go to Lifesong for Orphans, a leading non-profit organization with the mission of bringing joy and purpose to orphaned and vulnerable children around the world.

Perhaps the most meaningful gift of all, any purchase made through the above Gobena Coffee links will support our own family’s adoption.  For anyone who clicks through those links and buys coffee, we are personally sending you a big family cyber hug for helping to bring our son home.  Ok, I’m tearing up now!

#9.  Weber Smoker

 

 

This porcelain-enameled steel smoker that looks like a mini-spaceship about to launch is a cooking powerhouse.  I gave this to Zach for Christmas 2 years ago after a coworker highly recommended it.  I did some research and bought all the essential accessories, and we have fallen in love with the pulled pork, beef BBQ, beer can chicken, and grilled lettuce to name a few of the things that we have experimented with (all from the cookbook recommended below).  Pounds of juicy meat dripping with smoky barbecue sauce will make him proud to contribute to meal time (unless he’s a vegetarian I guess).  Must have accessories to go with this smoker include this Secrets to Smoking on the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker Cookbook, the Rapid Fire Chimney Starter, these Silicone Smoker Oven Gloves, and this Wireless Smoker Grill Meat Thermometer.

#10.  Whiskey Decanter Set

This girl has never been able to get alcohol past the little dangly thing in the back of the throat (comes right back out), but Zach enjoys it on occasion.  His current favorite is a glass of the award winning Pennsylvania rye whiskey from our local distillery, Stoll & Wolfe, here in Lititz, Pennsylvania.

Zach decided award winning whiskey should be enjoyed with the style it deserves and invested in his own glass decanter set and looks quite pretty on the mirrored tray I bought to go with it.
