The second week of June is pure madness. Does anyone else feel this way? There’s the end of school, graduations, Father’s Day…it’s a lot to pack into one little week.
I have two goodies for you in preparation for Father’s Day: Father’s Day printables, and a special Things I Love Thursday (TILT): Father’s Day BLISS PICKS.
We’ll start with my BLISS PICKS for Father’s Day. This year’s Father’s Day Gift Guide of BLISS PICKS includes some personal picks from Mr. Bliss. My husband is pickier than I am, folks, so you know these are good gifts.
1. Partida Tequila (around $60 for 750 ml)
This specialty tequila comes in four distinct flavors: Blanco, Reposado, Anejo, and Elegante. I was sent a sample of the Partida Tequila Anejo to try, which was perfect for me, considering Partida describes this flavor as “the love child of Partida Tequila and American Whiskey.” YES. It’s not only perfect for moi, but I’m going to say it’s a great gift for dads across the globe. It’s fruity but also intense — you can definitely taste the almond and cherry flavors. Delicious. I’m already trying to think of new cocktail recipes using Partida Tequila Anejo, but trust me: if I enjoy drinking a straight shot of this, your hubby will too.
2. IMUSA Electric Panini and Sandwich Maker (around $35-$50)
For the foodie fathers out there, I highly recommend this non-stick panini maker. We have one, and have used it several times now, including making quick grilled cheese sandwiches for the Bliss Kids. For a fun Father’s Day panini idea, check out my Apple, Bacon, and Cheese Panini recipe. I absolutely love how truly nonstick this panini maker is: it’s easy to clean, and folds up nicely for easy storage.
3. Tissot Men’s T-Race Black Chronograph Dial Watch ($500)
Tissot is the personal brand of choice for men’s watches for Mr. Bliss. Sure, he’s Swiss and has that allegiance to the brand, but he also has an affinity for high quality craftsmanship. After 150 years, Swiss watchmaker Tissot continues its tradition of innovation and perfection. If you have a man who has it all, you can’t go wrong with a Tissot watch. It’s an investment that truly is worth the price because these watches withstand the test of time. If you have kids, these are great family heirloom pieces to hand down from generation to generation.
4. Executive Black Leather 3-Piece Cigar Case Holder with Cutter and Lighter ($58)
For the cigar lover, this accessories kit is a great gift: it includes a cigar case, cutter, and lighter, and is made of high quality leather with room for two cigars. I admittedly do not know much about cigars, but I am told by Mr. Bliss that these types of gifts would be a great alternative to the (yawn, boring) Father’s Day tie or t-shirt.
5. Loser Pale Ale (around $12/6-pack)
Recently, Mr. Bliss and I had the opportunity to attend a first-of-its-kind Whole Foods Market Ten & Friends beer pairing event. Whole Foods Market has taken its popular Ten & Friends wine program and expanded it into a new beer program, offering tips for food & beer pairings around 10 carefully chosen beers. My husband’s favorite of the 10 we tasted: Elysian Brewing Company‘s Loser Pale Ale. It’s a fantastic summer beer and would pair well with any BBQ you have planned. Dad’s gonna love this gift.
FREE FATHER’S DAY PRINTABLES
I have two sets of Father’s Day Printables for you: one is a set of FREE Father’s Day Bottle Wrap Printables, and the other is a set of sandwich wraps and food flags (that can be found over on my pal Today’s Creative Blog!). You can also use the wine/beer wraps and the sandwich wraps to wrap around gifts, as I did below. So easy: simply click the links, download, print, cut, and tape or paste!
The bottle wraps say “Cheers to the best dad!”

The second set of printables includes food flags that say “Enjoy!” and the sandwich wraps that say “Happy Father’s Day!” I used a sandwich wrap above as a gift wrap! You can download that FREE printable over on my pal Kim’s blog Today’s Creative Blog.
I hope you fathers out there all enjoy a totally BLISSful Father’s Day! You deserve it. Cheers!
