Gifts for Dads Under $50: Red Envelope Giveaway

One of the reasons I fell in love with my husband was because I knew one day, when the time was right, he would make an incredible Dad.  In 2005, with the birth of our first daughter, I discoved that I was right.  From the first moment Lily was born and with the addition of Aubrie 3 years later, he contantly amazes me with his love for the girls.  He jumps right in and plays dance class, princess parade and tea parties without a complaint.

June is the month to honor Dad and my girls and I have been searching for the perfect gift.  I was pleased to find that Red Envelope has an entire section dedicated to gifts for men under $50!  While I can’t tell you exactly what I selected for hubby since he reads my blog, I can say that there were several great choices!  We loved the Fatherhood Cuff Links and the Amp Retro Style Speaker, we found something even better!  Check out all the great Father’s Day Gifts in the Red Envelope Catalog!
