Successful Father's Day Gifts #SterlingChoice

NOTE: Affiliate links included in some posts. 

It's always a special time when we stop and celebrate our dads. He's the one who taught me how beautiful I was. He's the first man I loved with my whole heart. He taught me all about football and basketball and golf and tennis and any other sport that came on tv that involved a ball. He was the first man to think I was funny . . . and smart . . . and lovable.

But sometimes it seems that finding the right Father's Day gift is such a challenge. For the most part, they can buy what they want for themselves and so finding something special, let alone meaningful, can be extremely difficult.

Considering that I wanted to share a couple of successful Father's Day gifts I have come across . . .

Tour Grapevine!

Growing up in the Dallas area, there are many landmark locations that I have visited many times. However, inevitably, there are places I haven't visited or still don't know much about.

Grapevine is a city I've visited on many occasions. The airport is there. The Grapevine Mills Outlet Mall is a place we frequent. We even occasionally go to downtown Grapevine and eat or shop. But, never have I heard the history of Grapevine. Or been told why it was named Grapevine. Or taken any kind of tour of Grapevine. So when I was offer to take a tour of the city with Grapevine Wine Tours, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do all of that.

My absolute favorite part of the tour was the leader - both our tour guide and the accompanying staff member from Grapevine Wine Tours were amazing. They were friendly, knowledgeable and we felt as if they were a welcomed member of our event rather than the annoying invasive presence that some tour guides can be.

We began our tour at the Emba…
