Father's Day DVD Gift Idea!

Disclosure: I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.



A couple of weeks ago, I shared with you a gift basket for my mom with all of our favorite items.  I know that I left my dad out, but since Father's Day was right around the corner, I knew that I was going to make him a basket of his own!  For my mom, I included some sappy rom-coms, nail polish, and generally girly things.  Since this is for my manly-Superman-of-a-dad with "biceps of iron" (his words, not mine), I wanted to put together his own gift basket!  The inspiration for the gift is centered around the DVD release one of his favorite characters of all time: Jack Ryan!  There is a whole series of books on him and a total of five movies with the character, but I am getting him the newest DVD, coming out on Tuesday (June 10th), so I know he doesn't have it yet!

Here's what's going to be in my dad's gift!

I love filling up a fun basket with my dad's favorite things, and this time I definitely hit them all!
 Here's what I'm planning to pick up at Walmart on Tuesday (clockwise from top):


  • Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit DVD:  It's one that I'll definitely watch with him.  Chris Pine, anyone?  ;)  (Or for my mom's generation, Kevin Costner and Kenneth Branagh, anyone?)
  • Coffee:  He LOVES his coffee so this is a given.  :)
  • Pocket squares:  Yep, he wears a suit basically every day to work, and his new obsession is pocket squares!  He's a dapper fellow, and I'm going to pick up some fabric to sew a couple.  :)
  • Chocolate:  He's a bigger chocolate fiend than my mom!  Remember how I went to New York and brought him back a souvenir of chocolate, which he specifically asked for?  Yep, he loves it.
  • Mesh soccer bag & soccer ball:  He's a huge soccer fan and plays a few times a week, so I thought it would be fun to package everything up in a mesh bag that he could actually use.  Besides, he is already gearing up for the World Cup!

One last thing, I know that I'm picking up the DVD version for my dad, BUT Walmart is releasing an exclusive Blu-Ray pack for just a few days.  You get Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit on Blu-ray, The Italian Job on Blu-ray, and $15 off of sports tickets on Ticketmaster all for only $12.96!  The offer is good only from Tuesday (6/10) to Saturday (6/14), so make sure to pick that up at Walmart!


What are you gifting to your dad next week?

  4. Thanks! I totally agree and the best part is that they get to ooh and aah over lots of goodies instead of just one! :)
