I’m sure there are a lot of golf-loving Dads out there. These personalized balls are perfect for the dad who wants a piece of his family while he’s out on course.

Lifesaver for the Dad that let’s his phone lose all his juice before recharging (we all know that guy:) Plus, the sleek design is a lot cooler than lugging around USB cords.


Artifact Uprising Hard Cover Book

This one is for the sentimental Dad. It’ll look great in his office and family always makes for a nice conversation piece. I created a book for my Nana as a Mother’s Day gift with all of pictures from her Surprise 95th birthday. You can include up to 200 pages and it came out so beautifully. It will look good with your other coffee table books and add a personal touch.

Barefoot Dreams the COZYCHIC® Adult Robe


This bathrobe is like wrapping a buttery, heaven around your body. I’ve given this gift and it was huge hit. I took it to be monogrammed with the word “Dad” on the chest. He’s going to be so into this robe! It comes in a choice of five different colors.


Private Flying Lessons


No, I’m not suggesting you buy him a plane! But, if you want to switch it up and give him the gift of doing something he always wanted to do, but never took the time for, this is the gift! I’ve given this one and it was a hit!

Whether he’s using this for water and extreme sports, documenting a vacation or making a mini movie, the Go Pro is waterproof, wireless and amazing. So many memories have been captured on ours and Dads love figuring out how to use these things.

    OMG Alisa- thank you! You’re like a one-stop-shop! I have anniversary/father’s day/birthday only weeks apart and now I’m covered for all. Such great ideas! I got the BBQ briefcase and the Meat book to accompany it and threw in the robe for good measure (which I’m totally getting monogrammed). You’re a genius. In Alisa I trust. Xoxo

      Emily, that is music to my ears! I started Pimpin’ Like Peanut to share what’s worked for me in children’s fashion/life style, parenting and of course, gift-giving. We moms must stick together and look out for one-another. Sharing is caring:) Come back and visit us soon! I know your husband will be one happy guy. xoxo
