I Mustache You

It’s Colton with another “I Mustache You” Post.

It’s “that time of year again” and I have a bone to pick with it. What time of year, you ask?

Summer? Nope. Bring it on…

Basketball playoffs? Couldn’t care less.

LBGT Pride Month? Nope. Keep marchin’…

Every year, about halfway through June, we all get together to celebrate the men that taught us to bring home the bacon, mow the lawn, change the oil, throw the sportsball, catch a fish and all of that other “dadly” stuff…

But what about the rest of us? What about those of us whose children walk on four legs? Or those of us that spend our free time traveling instead of at Chuck-E-Cheese? Or those of us that aren’t a walking ATM for disrespectful little know-it-alls?

Ok, I am being harsh, obviously. Father’s day is fantastic, and I love getting to celebrate my dad for being amazing (he could totally beat up your dad, by the way).

But since those of us without offspring tend to have a little more disposable income than the rest of the pack, I decided to do another edition of “Top Not-A-Father’s Day Gifts”, updated for 2017.

Disclaimer: Although these items are meant for not-a-fathers, actual fathers may be interested in them as well.

For The Outdoorsy Not-A-Father

While trying to prepare for a big road trip in Maeve the Westy, I keep coming across the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter as a “must have” if you plan on doing any major hiking. It’s basically a water filter built into a straw, so you can dip it into (almost) any water source and drink filtered water.

So, if your not-a-father likes to get lost in the woods, maybe send him out with one of these bad boys so he doesn’t come back with a disease or parasite.

For The Well Groomed Not-A-Father

I recently rediscovered what it’s like to have to shave my neck line again after cutting about 4 inches of beard off of my face, and it wasn’t fun.

So, rather than dig out a 3 year old Bic or try to revamp my electric razor, I decided to, once again, follow the advice of Tom Haverford from Parks and Rec…

I did my research and decided to order a razor & shave set from Harry’s. Now, as the beard on my face would suggest, I’m not one for razors. But this thing feels so nice on my neck and beard line, it almost makes me want to go full baby face. You can even customize it, and have your not-a-father’s initials engraved into it (I did… #sorrynotsorry).

The shave set came with 3 extra razor heads, but you can also get refills at Target, or have them delivered straight to your doorstep (also great for the lazy not-a-father).

For The Hipster Not-A-Father

I would think that one thing that would drive a hipster crazy is not being able to take his typewriter to the local coffee shop and show off just HOW hipster he is.

Problem solved! Get him this Azio typewriter-inspired mechanical keyboard!

All jokes aside, I actually do think this is awesome…

For The Not-A-Father That Makes Dad Jokes Anyways

Do I really need to explain why this looks awesome? Explosions are awesome. Kittens are awesome. What’s more do you need from a card game?

Even the game description is amazing, Exploding Kittens: A Card Game About Kittens and Explosions and Sometimes Goats. Sign me up! There’s also a NSFW Adults Only version

For The Not So Handy Not-A-Father

I think, in some cases (not all), handiness and fatherhood go hand-in-hand. Dads generally just know how to fix stuff with their hands better, I’ve found. And I also know many childrenless men who couldn’t tell you the difference between a flathead screwdriver and a power drill. So, for the not-a-father in your life that couldn’t replace a smoke alarm battery to save his life, there’s Sugru.

Honestly, handy or not, this stuff is just kinda fun to use. And I can’t tell you how many Apple power adaptors I’ve thrown away that could’ve been fixed with Sugru.

For The Fitness Loving Not-A-Father

Ok, I really don’t have any advice on fitness to offer, whatsoever. But I can tell you that the few times I’ve played Spikeball, I woke up really sore the next day. I assume that means it’s a good workout, right?

If you’ve never heard/seen/played this game, the only way I know how to describe it is as a badass hybrid between Volleyball and Four Square that, once you start playing, you won’t be able to stop.

 

Happy Not-A-Father’s Day! 😉

Oh yeah… and Happy Father’s Day too. 😉

    hilarious! i never know what to get people, fathers day in particular! I love the exploding kittens game!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:03 am

      Haha. Right? Father’s Day always falls by Colton’s birthday, so it’ s a great way to see what he wants for it.

  • Lindsey June 6, 2017 at 6:19 am

    Haha, this made me laugh! Especially the disclaimer that actual father’s may be interested…haha, thanks for the giggle!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:03 am

      Of course! He’s a nut for sure. I am always laughing.

  • Kim June 6, 2017 at 8:41 am

    Love this. The life straw is genius! Expolding kittens looks like a blast. And I need Sugru in my life! I mean Im a mother not a father so it works right? Have a great week!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:04 am

      Absolutely works! I think everyone needs a little Sugru.

  • Beth Kondrick June 6, 2017 at 9:35 am

    LOL the Sugru is hilarious. I would like to try that out myself! And I still want the Exploding Kittens game!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:04 am

      Me too! I think everyone needs it.

  • Lianne June 6, 2017 at 10:39 am

      Thank you, Lianne!

  • Kimberly June 6, 2017 at 11:30 am

    Father’s DAy is such a tricky one. I usually just buy lots of beer and call it a day. Beer is the gift that keeps on giving…well…unless you run out.

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:05 am

      That’s a great gift idea too!

  • ShootingStarsMag June 6, 2017 at 12:16 pm

    haha i love this! These are some great gift ideas for non-fathers and fathers alike!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:05 am

      Thank you!

  • Robin June 6, 2017 at 4:11 pm

    One of my coworkers has a mechanical keyboard, and he tends to forget to mute himself when we’re on a conference call; so whenever he starts typing, the loud keys drown out everyone’s voices! 😂 Also, I’ve been meaning to buy Exploding Kittens to give Cards Against Humanity a short break!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:06 am

      hahaha. That would be awful.

  • Nancy at Miles For Family June 6, 2017 at 4:13 pm

    Interesting ideas! I need to check out Spikeball.

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:06 am

      It’s so much fun!

  • Felicia June 6, 2017 at 5:29 pm

    LOL love this post! It’s my not-a-father boyfriend’s birthday right around Father’s day this year, so this was perfect timing! I’ve been struggling to think of fun things to get him – he’s one of those people who always just buys whatever he wants or needs and never saves room for gifts!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:07 am

      That’s exactly how Colton is! That’s why I ask him to make this so it gives me gift ideas for his birthday.

  • Amanda June 6, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Great ideas! These are definilfeh some unique ones! Happy Not-A-Father’s Day!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:07 am

      Thank you, Amanda!

  • Dominique June 7, 2017 at 2:37 am

    LOL, this really made me laugh. I can’t just see Barney Stinson drinking to “not” being a father. I’ve never seen that keyboard before, how cool, and I love that you got your initials engraved in the shaver set! Happy “not-a-father”‘s Day!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:08 am

      Thank you! Colton’s so witty and a lot like Barney (except the married version), so it works well.

  • Liz June 7, 2017 at 4:45 am

    So funny! Love the gifts you chose for “not a father”… it all looks like neat stuff. I think my husband would enjoy the spike ball. Sounds like fun!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:08 am

      Spike ball is a blast. I love it too!

  • Jessica Wagner June 7, 2017 at 7:13 am

    Yes to spikeball!! I haven’t actually played myself but that its a great gift idea! Thanks for sharing and making me laugh! XO

  • Shannon Morscheck June 7, 2017 at 8:21 am

    Okay I have seen that Sugru stuff before and think it looks awesome! I think I need to get some!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:09 am

      Right?! It fixes everything!

  • carlie June 8, 2017 at 9:53 am

    Aw I love these! They’re so cute! I think I may get my dad a few of these -especially the “handy man” stuff hahaha

  • Jeni June 8, 2017 at 1:11 pm

    My husband uses Harry’s shave kits and loves them 🙂 I may just have to get the typewriter keyboard for him. So I can borrow it 😉

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:10 am

      Aren’t they great? I like the typewriter keyboard too. So fun!

  • Kuleigh June 8, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Haha I love this list! Spike ball is so much fun.

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:12 am

      Isn’t it! I love playing it, even though I am not good and Colton always wins.

  • Willow June 8, 2017 at 7:16 pm

    I want some Sugru for me! I just threw out an Apple cord that wasn’t good anymore!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:12 am

      I know! I have too!

  • Dhemz June 10, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    OMG! hahahhaa…these are hilarious gift ideas. I’m still looking around what to give for my husband on Father’s day. Thanks for sharing!

    • Jessica June 12, 2017 at 8:13 am
