Of course if your man prefers chocolate over gummis, you can still get something fun and nostalgic, like a giant Hershey bar.


  1. Candy canes for dogs, huh? That's a good idea!

  2. Great quirky gifts! I love the gummy bear and tree crayons.

  3. Great ideas. My granddaughter loves those Dippin Dots at the mall is that what the astronaught ice cream is like?
