FOR THE POPPAS

Father's day is just around the corner (June 15 ladies), so being the good wife (no, not that Good Wife) that I am, and since B is a tad too young to use the plastic yet, I set out to find the best gift for the awesome dadda who is my husband. Here are my top picks for every kind of dadda this Father's Day:

For the bookworm dadda: Jason Good's This is Ridiculous This Is Amazing. This book is great. You and your man will surely relate to most of the 71 hilarious parenthood lists that comedian Jason Good has collected from his own parental experience. It is amazing and ridiculous. His book trailer will give you a taste of his humour, and will have you laughing so hard your PF won't know what hit it.

For the "playful" daddaPlay Mat t-Shirt. I would totally steal this one for those early morning floor sprawls when you hope to catch a few more zzzs. Genius.

For the stylin' dadda: Matching onesie and T-shirt gift set by Chic Couture Boutique. Swoon.

For the sporty dadda: A toddler bike seat or trailer is a great way to be active as a family (here is a great comparison site for these sorts of things)…or a great way for your husband to have some quality time with your little one(s) while you have some quality time alone. Win win.

For the sleepy lazy dadda: A deluxe hammock like this beauty from Lee Valley. This, I would also borrow. Daily.

For the new dadda: Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads will teach new dads"one-of-a-kind insights, MacGyver-esque tips and tricks, and no-nonsense advice for mastering the first year." Golden. (I think of my Albertan brother-in-law every time I see the cover of this book - him to a T.)

For the overly ambitious dadda: DIY Treehouses. Anyone?

For the nerdy dadda: Who doesn't want a remote controlled helicopter? Hours of entertainment for the little people and your big nerd.

Happy hunting!
