Birthday, Father's Day - What to Buy?

Another 6 months have flown by and 2011 is halfway through. With that comes Father's Day and my husband's birthday. These two special days usually occur in the same week and sometimes on the same day. This year, Father's Day is on June 19th - the day before his birthday. So planning needs to start really soon if we were to make his day special. The kids can make him a handmade gift, or buy him a box of chocolates, but what shall I get him?

If there's one thing that wakes me up in the middle of the night (it's highly unlikely as I sleep like a rock), it is cold toes pressed against my toasty ones. I can't wear socks, as he says it is "not healthy". It is now winter in South Africa and despite the fact that we live on the coast and it is supposed to be summer here all year round, it is pretty cool at the moment. Hubby has been nagging for sheepskin slippers and I guess his cold toes have been used to his advantage to convince me that he needs the slippers.
One of my favorite gifts to give, is a pair of humorous socks. I think it's cute and a great reminder for the person who wears it to know how you feel about him. What could beat a pair of  "World's #1 Dad" socks on Father's Day? But dark socks are no longer acceptable as Beach Bum fashion and for some crazy reason they don't make funny socks in white. 

They say that you should walk in the other person's shoes and give something they would really like. My mind has been racing until I finally came up with a gift that keeps on giving - so to speak. Something that would bring value and something that we could enjoy together.

That's when I came across these gorgeous shoes...

Surely wearing them as is, would be the perfect gift!
