Your Military Dad Deserve the Best

Your military man deserves the best for father’s day, and while I know you can find military gifts at your nearest base, these ones are made with love by military spouses or veterans. Trust me, they are  all the more special. Just like he is! 

Father's Day Gift from Military Spouse and Veteran Owned Companies

I’ve organized the guide a little bit differently. First, there’s a few I’ve listed a few from an awesome new market place called Spouse-ly! No, this particular post is not sponsored. They didn’t pay money or even ask to be directly talked about. BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SPOUSE-LY. They are an online market place were all the vendors (products and services) are military spouse or veterans. Can you say awesome? Next, you’ll see specific items each military spouse or veteran owned company offer that I think  would be great Father’s Day gift for your military dad. Scroll down some more and I have three categories: Veteran Owned, Military Spouse Owned, and Veteran Benefitting (actively gives back to military community/veteran charities). Happy Shopping and make sure you Pin this guide so you have the list for birthdays, promotions or retirement!

Father’s Day Mug: This one is tied with the apron for my personal favorite. But I’m partial to gifts that make my soldier laugh πŸ™‚
