Father's Day: The Perfect Gift for First-Time Dads

Hey guys!

Father's Day is just around the corner.  Around here, we celebrated a little early since Kris will be out of town for the weekend.  But I didn't mind - I was dying for him to open his gift anyway! 

I bought his gift from a company called The Night Sky.  Have you heard of them??  They create custom star maps that capture the night sky on your special day and it's so. freaking. cool!  As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect way to immortalize the night that Kris became a dad.

And it was so easy!  All I did was type in Luna's birthday and the city she was born in.  Then they took care of the rest!

Oh - you can also add a caption if you want!  Here's what ours says:

I love so many things about these maps.  Like ... they go with everything!  We've been looking for something to hang in our living room for a while so that's a double win.  Plus it's not just going to sit in a drawer somewhere until I throw it away (like some of my past gifts).  And at $60 plus FREE SHIPPING they're super affordable!

The last year of parenthood has been such an adventure with Kris and it was so fun to recreate the night sky on the day it all started.  Now I just have to figure out what to buy for my own dad(s).  Wish me luck!  Or even better, send me some ideas in the comments below :)

Happy (Almost) Father's Day!
