Father's Day, A Gift That Will Become a Favorite!

 Everyone I know seems to scramble for something interesting for Father's Day.  They are searching for a gift that will keep on giving in some way that "The Dad" in the family will enjoy for a long time to come.  Well I think I have hit on a gift that fits that bill for the Father in our household and everyone can chip in to make it an affordable and lasting gift.

Are you curious?  What could it be?

Well, let me tell you a little more and then maybe you could guess.  We live in an area where we are close to the airport and our balcony faces in a way that we seem to have an arrival highway to the airport.  We enjoy sitting out on our balcony in the evenings and watching the planes.  Sometimes it's easy to see them and then there are other times when they are just too far away.  

We also enjoy watching the hawks that are always circling around our buildings.  These birds are amazing animals and up close and personal is the best way to appreciate their beauty.

Now the other thing we love doing is getting out to baseball games.  For our retired way of life, we usually get some nose-bleed seats and watch the overall game.  But, there are times when your favorite batter is up and you just need to get a closer look.  

What you may ask, could possibly cover all of these different activities?  Well if you guess Binoculars, you would be right on the money.

What we love about the  binoculars featured here, is that they are waterproof, lightweight and yet still give you a really great close up of whatever you happen to focus on.  When your Dad is out and about they hang around his neck without being bulky and cumbersome. For the serious, but practical bird/plane/baseball player watcher (also known as Dad) these are a perfect pair of binoculars.  The best part is that they are so affordable and everyone in the family can still share in the cost and then take Dad out for dinner too!   You can get your Dad a great pair of Binoculars right here:  Bushnell Binoculars:


Of course you are not limited to what I have shown you here.  If your Dad requires a more sophisticated pair of binoculars, you can go all out and break the bank if you want to, but it really isn't necessary.  He will be able to do a lot of watching up close and personal with the ones I have chosen to feature here for you.  

Wishing all of the Dads, Granddads and Dad figures a wonderful and Happy Father's Day on Sunday June 19th!

  1. Binoculars are a fabulous idea for a Father's Day gift, Olivia. I know my hubby enjoyed his for many activities. When we retired to a coastal area, it was fun to sit on the beach and watch ships come into port through the binoculars. Thanks for this great gift idea.

    1. Indeed that would be a great use for them. We take ours to watch my Granddaughter when she is in the ring riding her horse and to the horse races too!

    1. I agree Raintree Annie, there are so many uses for these and when you are out hiking in the woods they can be a real help in finding those birds you hear but can't really see.

  3. Olivia, that's an excellent suggestion for Father's Day. We've had a few pairs, and they were absolutely brought to baseball games and family outings. If a Dad doesn't have his own pair, this is a practical and thoughtful gift idea.

    1. Thank you Barbara, and yes I agree, we have had many over the years. Sometimes they are big and heavy, but this set is small, lightweight and easy to use too! If Dad doesn't have a pair, they would be a welcome addition for sure!

  4. My father & my husband have several pairs of binoculars. They are, indeed, a wonderful gift idea. I feel like I have been hearing the brand name "Bushnell" all of my life. Certainly since I have been old enough to buy gifts. Binoculars are truly a fabulous gift suggestion!

    1. Thank you Miss Mouse. Bushnell is a great name in anything related to binoculars and they have a good reputation for quality goods. We have had many pairs over the years as well, but these are my favorites so far.

    1. Thank you Margaret, there are so many ways that these can be used by just about anyone. Even the kids will be borrowing Dad's Binoculars at times.

  6. Binoculars are just nice gifts for anyone. I always admired people who used them in the theater.

    1. I so agree, and using them in the theater is a great idea too. Especially if you are in the very back (where I can afford the ticket prices). They will bring the whole story very close to you!
