Dads, Grads, and Lovers

Several things will be happening in the next few weeks, and Gift Listings will be here to help you get ready. Father's Day is June 20th, schools and universities will be turning out new graduates, and June is traditionaly a big month for engagements and weddings. So, for the next few weeks, we'll be concentrating mainlly on ideas for Dads, Grads, and Couples. Here's the first installment, with one of each.

Dad can always use another mug for his favorite morning beverage, right? This time, make it a special one by designing one yourself using his favorite
saying, a family photo, or maybe even a picture of his favorite fishing hole. Want to give it a try? Zazzle's the place to do it. And, even if you aren't feeling especially artsy, there are plenty of pre-designed gift mugs at Zazzle, with all kinds of themes. For example, here's one for the World's Greatest Bowling Dad.

Did they just get engaged? Are they ready to startmaking plans for the big day? How about a special binder to organize all their notes and contacts for their wedding plans?
