A month ago during Mother’s Day, I told the story of how my son and I took the short drive to Target to purchase Mother’s Day gifts. My wife was perfectly delighted with what we picked out for her there.
Undeniably and by default, we are a Target family. We are there all throughout the week. Just a few days ago, I did an Instragram on how I finally spent some of my birthday money there on some good music:

Right now I’m thinking of the lyrics from the song “Spend Your $$$”, from Walk the Moon’s CD that I bought: “What do you spend your money on?”
With my wife and I being Dave Ramsey followers, we live by the concept of having designated “blow money”. Everything else goes to pay bills or it goes into our savings, which is how we recently bought a new car and already had the money in the bank.
When I think about it, though, when I do spend my money, I spend a good amount of my “blow money” at Target.
Well, the folks at Target had no idea about any of this; nor were they aware of my Mother’s Day post or about my birthday money Instagram. So it is a complete coincidence that Target reached out to me a few days ago and asked me to do a “Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Idea” post, simply based on the fact I am one of America’s most popular daddy bloggers.
They sent me a nice new, classy belt (I desperately needed one!) as well as some leather sneakers (okay, I admit- I own more shoes than my wife, but I can always handle more!).
I say dads are easy to pick gifts for. As for me, I like practical stuff. So if you’re still trying to figure out what to get Dad for Father’s Day weekend, I suggest just go by Target.
As a husband and a dad, I can tell you for a fact that Target is always one of the easiest places for me to spend gift cards. (It’s the main place my wife and I were registered for our newborn daughter.) It really is one of my favorite stores. I consider it an honor they reached out to me to help people figure out what to get Dad for Father’s Day.
