The Best Gifts for Dads & Grads

** This post is sponsored by All opinions are my own. Thanks to you guys for supporting the brands that make The Melissa Lifestyle possible!

If you're the type of person that likes to give the BEST and most unique gifts, you've come to the right place. Father's Day is ahead and tons of graduations are under way. When the BabbleBoxx team asked if I could talk about their Perfect Gifts for Dads and Grads box, it was a no-brainer to say yes. Especially since this is the first year my husband is a new dad. Although he may not show it, he loves the cool gifts I get him. Today I'll be talking about the cool gifts we got to check out in this amazing box.

I'm Open for the Open

How cool would it be to attend the 2019 U.S. Open Championship? AND it's in Pebble Beach, California. Golf and the beach, who would say no to this amazing gift?! The next U.S. Open Golf is next June but the tickets go on sale on June 11th 2018 (visit to purchase). You have to act fast because you never know when the good tickets run out. My dad is a big fan of the U.S. Open and I can't wait to take him. He loves to see the best of the best compete.

Give the gift of Heritage

If you thought that was a cool gift, this next one is will probably top it. Have you ever been interested in taking a DNA test to find out more about your heritage? Give your dad or grad a MyHeritage DNA testing kit. MyHeritage is the leading destination for family history research and DNA testing. Their results will include DNA matches (people who are likely related to you based on your shared DNA) and an Ethnicity Estimate (Which portions of your DNA are estimated to originate from each of our 42 supported ethnicities — most internationally diverse database). I would definitely want to find out my heritage because of how mixed the filipino race has become several centuries. I also have a friend that did the test and he let me peek into his results. I was fascinated by the information you learn and would definitely do this test for myself. Use the coupon below at MyHeritage website to get free shipping on your own DNA kit. The test is also currently on sale for $59 and runs until June 17th.

Keep Him Comfy and Dry

You can't go wrong with gifting a man's basic essentials, t-shirts and boxers. The Hanes Ultimate™ Men’s Comfort Flex Fit® Ultra Soft Boxer Briefs & Hanes Ultimate™ Men’s Comfort Fit White Crewneck Undershirt are made from a soft cotton/modal for all day comfort and both feature Cool Comfort wicking fabric. The t-shirts are super soft and the boxers feel silky. I would highly recommend these for any man in my life.
