2023 Father’s Day Gift Guide
Tool in Action
It’s approaching my favorite time of year…Father’s Day! The time of year where I get to show off to Dan all the great stuff my wife and kids got me – just kidding! But I do love this time of year. It’s a fun opportunity to reflect on some of the great tools we have reviewed here at Tools in Action, and check out some other great stuff to include in our 2023 Father’s Day Gift Guide.
We have a great list this year. We also tried to make it easier to navigate by dividing the list up into interests. So whether you’re shopping for your dad, an uncle, a spouse shopping for your husband (or even shopping for yourself), you can jump to whatever list sounds like the person you are shopping for.
