fathers day gifts


Here's our Editor's list of books that should be a blessing to any father:

(Note:  If you are really daring... do for your husband what my wife did for me.  This is a gift that will change his life.)

Man in the Mirror by Patrick Morley... one of the best selling Christian men's books of all times.  It has changed thousands of lives.

Revolution within: A Fresh Look at Supernatural Living by Dwight W. Edwards  Described over and over as "life-changing".  A great book to help your man move forward in Christian maturity.  

The Purpose-Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For? by Rick Warren   A current bestseller that you can't go wrong with.  Every man is searching for significance.  This book addresses this topic in a new and fresh way.  Organized in 40 easy devotionals. 

Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul by John Eldredge  Actually, this is a must-read for men and women.  I enjoyed most of the book, but found some of the ideas a little outlandish.  All in all, a good book.  It really talks to men.

The 7 Secrets of Effective Fathers by Ken R. Canfield   Hey... this is a fathers website... how about a bestselling book on being a father?  A great book from a man who many consider to be the leading expert on fathering from a Christian perspective.1

For the father to be...  Congratulations, You're Gonna Be a Dad!: What's Ahead from A to Z for First-Time Fathers by Paul Pettit, Pam Pettit.  High ratings from Amazon readers and includes brief articles of advice from veteran fathers who have gone before them . . . and survived, including Chuck Swindoll, James Dobson, Howard Hendricks.

Halftime by Bob Buford   Uh-oh... Is your man stuck in 'mid-life'.  This is a great book with some wonderful ideas on how to move on with life. 

How about some movies that will inspire him?  Here's a few of my favorites (on DVD)Frequency, The Patriot,  Field of Dreams and Family Man.

Ok, you've decided that a book is not the right thing... maybe he likes electronics.  The Lexar Media 128 MB JumpDrive Portable USB Flash Drive is a very handy electronic gadget that makes moving data from one computer to another a breeze.  This little device can fit in your pocket and yet holds the equivalent of more than 50 floppy disks of capacity.

Want your father to be a walking billboard?  How about a special father t-shirt or Christian t-shirt?  Check 'em out at ChoiceShirts.com.

I love the saying, "the best things in life are free".  (or almost free...)  Here's some other ideas:

Hand written cards from the kids and love notes from the wife.

A great big hug.

His favorite candy.

Give him a picture of you and the kids... framed for his desk.

Sears Craftsman(tm) hand tools are really nice... and guaranteed.

How about a magazine subscription (to something other than Sports Illustrated) such as FatherMagazine.

For wives only.  If you are really daring... do for your husband what my wife did for me.  This is a gift that will change his life.

The greatest gift of all... for a father who does not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ... <click...>

Got a great idea to share?  Please email me and I'll post it.

Please... no ties, socks, underwear.
