  1. Thanks for these ideas! My boyfriends special day is coming up and I’ve been trying to think of funny birthday gifts for men but I’m all out of the ideas. I really loved the comic coasters and I think he would too. Thanks again!

  2. Thanks for the great gift ideas! We used the Dad Rocks as an inspiration to creat our own framed image for my husband. It says My Dad, My Hero with a background of a close-up shot of a waving American flag. He’s in the military. My children are very excited to give it to him. I also want to thank you for just this website in general. There needs to be more people and ideas devoted to strenghtening marriages. Many of your wonderful ideas on this website I can’t use right now as my husband left me almost 7 months ago and just last night as my children and I were working on his gift he was emaiing me with his desired terms for divorce. But I still tuck away the ideas praying and believing that God will restore our marriage in his time.Thank you for being a voice for strong and loving marriages and families. May your work be blessed!

    1. Kimberly THANK YOU for sharing your story. Your gift sounds amazing! I think I speak for all the divas when I say we will be keeping our fingers crossed and you and your marriage in our prayers 🙂
