Just in case you were wondering?

Father’s Day is 4 days, 15 hours and 47 seconds away.

I don’t have to wonder.

My husband has been dropping hints for the last two months. Gradually, slowly, he works things into conversation. Or leaves an open flyer on a table. Or casually mentions a tool like it’s a news item he just found online. I think he thinks the kids and I don’t notice.


He thinks he’s the epitome of stealth and intrigue.

Double 00 hint dropper.

The other day, I commented about the fact that Father’s Day is right around the corner.


Like he hadn’t noticed.

Like he was oblivious.

Like he was completely unaware that he was about to be showered with cake and breakfast and tools and handmade cards with extra hearts.

I had to turn away to stop laughing.

June 16 is right around the corner, so to celebrate hint-dropping Father’s everywhere, I put together a list of tools (on sale right now at your local Lowe’s) that any Father would be happy to find next to all of those hand-drawn hearts.

Greenworks Cordless Blower

  • We have this blower and my husband uses it ALL THE TIME
  • It’s perfect for clean-up after you finish yard work (or we use it for last-minute porch clean-up instead of sweeping when we have company coming over)
  • This blower runs up to 45 minutes run time on low speed with a fully charged 2.5 AH Battery
  • It’s less than 8 lbs
  • Has a push button start—don’t need to use messy gas
  • Variable speeds
  • You can pick one up at your local Lowe’s or you can check out the cordless blower here

Greenworks pressure washer

  •  This was at the top of the hint dropping list
  •  It’s perfect for all that dirty siding and cleaning off concrete and making sure your outdoor furniture looks like new
  •  It  has a 14-amp motor
  •  The pressure washer comes with metal wand, soap and turbo nozzles and multiple quick-connect wand tips for various cleaning applications
  •  You can store all those accessories right on the pressure washer so they don’t get lost
  •  Has a 35-ft power cord with inline GFCI for use on all exterior outlets
  • You can pick one up at your local Lowe’s or you can see more about the pressure washer here

Greenworks cordless drill

  • There were TONS of subtle hints about a drill
  • Most of them involved the word “cordless”
  • This cordless drill comes with two speeds
  • It’s compact, lightweight and easy to use
  • You can pick one up at your local Lowe’s or you can see more about the cordless drill here

Greenworks trimmer

  • We have this trimmer and it works amazingly well

  • 2Ah Li-Ion battery and charger included

cordless LED work light

  • I added this to the list because I think this is what we are getting my father-in-law
  • Shhhhh
  • He never met a work light he didn’t like
  • This one is 24V and cordless and stands on it’s own
  • You can find this at your local Lowe’s or see more details about the work light here
