Silver linings...

Dads and daughters…

** This is a sponsored post brought to you by Gifts Less Ordinary. The opinions are completely my own. **

As Father’s Day approaches I can’t help but feel grateful that I’ve had two dads in my life… My dad was a young 19 when I came into the world and I quickly became a daddy’s girl. My mom remarried a wonderful man when I was a teenager and he accepted me into his heart just as if I’d always been his daughter… I know I am blessed to have had the chance to have two fathers love me unconditionally…

Me with my beautiful Mama and my Daddy in the 1970’s

When I was a little girl I wanted to go everywhere with my dad. We frequented places like tire shops and car repair and to this day walking into and smelling that distinctive tire smell at one of these shops reminds me of when I was a little girl and makes me smile. I used to love tinkering in the garage with my dad as he worked on projects and he’d always pretend I was a good helper even though in retrospect I was probably in the way! 🙂 I remember the joy of sitting at a stool in his workshop and I’d make creations out of my empty bubble containers  and drilling in screws and other tools to make little people… I just found joy in being with my daddy.

My wonderful stepdad with my Mama and my boys.

My stepdad was lost to us several years back due to a fight with cancer but his love stays with me… During one of his many hospital stays, he reached out to me while my mom went to get something. He held my hand and told me he was so blessed to have me as a daughter and to always believe in myself… He told me that he was so proud of the woman and mother I had become and that he just knows I will go far. How lucky am I to have been loved so much by a father who did not have to be a father to me but yet chose to….

I’d love to hear from my readers…. what is one memory you hold dear from your father?

Don’t forget to honor dad in a few weeks for Fathers’ Day! Call him up, send him a card and pick out a little something just to say “Thanks Dad!” I found the cutest items for Father’s Day  at They have so many perfect gifts to help show your dad just what he means to you….

They have such a cute and fun selection to show your dad just how important he is to you!

They have everything from personalized  pillows to monogrammed cocktail shakers!

I absolutely adore this cute baby outfit for my adorable niece to wear on this, my baby brothers first Father’s Day! 

Perfect for any Man Cave is this adorable sign!

I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Father’s Day with your dads and father figures you are blessed to have in your life!

Much Love, 

Shell Maria, The Sun Mama



  1. There’s always a special bond between fathers and daughters. I just love this article for reminding me of this fact. I’ll need to hug my dad soon, as he gives best hugs! 🙂

    1. Aww thanks so much Natalia! 🙂

  2. Love the baby outfit! My son used to wear statement onesies like that back in the days. 🙂

    1. Hi Czjai! My boys did too! I think they are super adorable! 🙂

  3. I just love the vintage photographs like the one at the beginning of this post. How wonderful to have two great examples of good men in your life!

    1. Aww thanks so much Heather! 🙂

  4. Elizabeth O

    What great ideas for Fathers Day you provided here. There are some really great picks. Myself I tend to lean toward a watch or a something hobby related.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! They do have such lovely choices!

  5. I love the personalized pillow and especially the Daddy’s Man Cave road sign.that would be perfect for my middle son. I get my 3 sons and my sil in law some token gift from my grandchildren. Your post hit a sentimental spot. I guess I’m not quite over losing my father a couple years ago, also to cancer.

    1. Hi Gladys… I’m so sorry that you too have lost a dear father… I think it’s absolutely lovely that you help your sons and SIL celebrate Father’s Day! 🙂

      1. Gladys Parker

        Thanks for your kind words! BTW, the throw back pictures reminds me of my teen years the designs and such. 🙂

        1. Your welcome Gladys! I adore finding these photographs of me with my mom and dad when I was little 🙂

  6. I love going to Mets games with my dad. He is an amazing man and I am happy to have him in my life.

    1. Hi Danielle! What a blessing for you to have that strong relationship with your dad! …and a baseball game sounds just about perfect to me!! 🙂

  7. Thank you for the reminder. I am planning to treat my dad out on Father’s Day. Though still a bit lost on what to get him as a present. Thank you for these wonderful ideas.

    1. Your welcome Clarice! I hope you and your father have a lovely Fathers Day together! 🙂

  8. This is one emotional and special post. Thanks for sharing your story with us. 😊

    1. Thank you!! 🙂

  9. It’s so great to hear your stories about your dads. You’re definitely one lucky girl to have two dads that love you the same. Some people are less lucky, I wish you all happiness in the world for you and your family! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Marya!

  10. My father is not in my life but I’m very happy for those who have wonderful fathers and celebrate this day! And I’m going to suggest your ideas to my friends!

    1. Thank you Corina!

  11. Your story about your two dads is so beautiful and moving. I also think you were blessed to have had such a fantastic family. My dad has been very important in my life too, but we haven’t spent much time together due to the fact that he was (and still is) a workaholic. As I child, I barely saw him and I remember longing so much to be with him, but we were three children and boys had priority over the girl to spend time with dad.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing Natalia… Childhood passes so quickly-in the blink of an eye they are grown and on their own. I’m so sorry you didn’t get much time with your dad when you were little…

  12. Very sweet blog! Good fathers are their daughters first love and you are blessed to have that love twice.

    1. Aww thank you Aditi! 🙂

  13. I love the personalised pillows <3 there are some great choices here 🙂 I love the cute outfit

    1. Hi Nina! I just adore that cute pillow too! 🙂

  14. How lucky are you to have two amazing Dads! My father and I didn’t reconnect until after my mother’s passing 4 years ago, a relationship that is awkward and strained. But I am blessed to have had amazing uncles, cousins and brothers who never made me feel like I was missing out on a father figure while growing up.

    1. Hi Victoria! Thanks so much for sharing and it sounds like you were very blessed to have a strong family that stepped in to be amazing father figures for you….

  15. My dad is super tall. I remember vividly being on his shoulders as a young girl and the thrill of looking at the world from the top. I also remember him driving all night to drive back to a hotel to get my beloved blanket I’d left behind.

    1. Aww Lara that is such a sweet memory of your dad! 🙂

  16. I absolutely afore your family photos! It’s so amazing that you’ve had two incredible dads in your life, to nurture and love you endlessly.

    1. Thank you so much Emily!! 🙂

  17. Kim

    I love to hear stories about dads and daughters. I am close to my dad too. But I just love watching the bond between my husband and daughter. Those two just love each other!

    1. Aww Kim that is so sweet!! 🙂

  18. Last time I celebrated Father’s Day with my dad was maybe 2012. Since I moved back to the US in 2012, I haven’t seen my dad since. We do communicate via Facebook or Google Hangouts and I do greet him every year I do miss the bonding we had whether it be in the garage – me helping him wash the car or help him with his tools; or in the yard. Hopefully soon I can give my dad a big hug again. Hoping he’ll visit here soon or I visit him soon.

    1. Hi Kristyn! I hope you will be able to visit with your dad again very soon! 🙂

  19. I am sorry to read about the loss of your step father but I am glad you had the chance to have him in your life and of course your dad. I hope you enjoy celebrating fatherrs day together!

    1. Thank you so much Ithfifi!! 🙂

  20. I’m so glad for you that you have had such a strong relationship with both your father and stepfather. With my dad, I love when we just get to sit down and talk to each other, and I admire my dad’s work ethic. He often works so hard, both at his job and at home, without expectation of return.

    1. Hi Patricia! It sounds like you are very blessed to have a fantastic dad! 🙂

  21. You are lucky to be loved unconditionally by two great dads. That love ought to be celebrated daily. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Msddah!

  22. Such a beautiful story you have about your fathers. You are blessed indeed!
    My dad worked hard to raise us well.

    1. Thank you so very much Indrani! 🙂

  23. Stephanie

    Father’s play a key role in their daughter’s lives and their love is amazing. Thank you for sharing this intimate moment in your life with us.

    1. Thank you Stephanie!

  24. Kayla

    This was truly heartfelt. I hav walkways been a daddy’s girl and it’s always so hard to live so far from him. I love watching my husband now have that relationship with our girls.

    1. Thanks so much Kayla! 🙂

  25. Cute gift ideas! Father’s Day gifts are some of the hardest ones find!

    1. Thanks Jessa! 🙂

  26. Jennifer Prince

    So wonderful to have two. <3 And I adore that pillow!! What an adorable gift for dad. You made some nice choices. 🙂

    1. Thank you Jennifer! 🙂

  27. Such a nice post. I have a great bond with my dad. These are some great ideas for Father’s Day. I am currently trying to figure out what to do for my dad and this post has inspired me.

    1. Hi Sue! I’m glad I could inspire you and I hope you have a lovely Father’s Day with your dad! 🙂

  28. The picture with your stepdad and your kids made me so emotional after reading that you lost him to cancer. He sounded like a wonderful dad and grandfather. I never got a chance to meet my grandad so I’m happy your kids at least got to meet him. Happy fathers day to all of us and to our great dads <3

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Narkis… We still miss him so very much…

  29. Tee Forever

    That’s beautiful. I appreciate your perspective and life experience. It’s good that your parents were all mature enough to handle co-parenting. Great story.

  30. Thanks for sharing your heartwarming stories! I’d better hustle up and get on the Father’s Day gift patrol!

    1. Your welcome Paula!

  31. Tawnya

    That’s so amazing you were able to have two great dads. Too often step-parents don’t put the same effort into children that aren’t there’s, but what really makes someone a parent is how they act, not the act of creating life.

    1. Thanks so much Tawnya! 🙂

  32. Rosey

    I love posts like this… I didn’t know my dad, he passed when my mom was expecting me. It was a void for years, I finally came to peace with it. 🙂

    1. Hi Rosey.. I’m so sorry you never got to meet your daddy…

  33. These are such great Father’s Day gift ideas. We actually celebrated last weekend with a cherry themed dinner party.

    1. That sounds so fun! 🙂

  34. You have such a great perspective. Love this. Thank you for the encouraging words….it really made me think.

  35. I have so many wonderful memories with my dad it’s hard to choose just one, he’s been there for me through all my ups and downs! I too am a total daddy’s girl! <3

    1. Hi Amanda! You sound very blessed! 🙂

  36. Sam

    These are great gifts. I really like the personalized pillow.

    This is a really sweet post. You are very lucky to have two great father figures in your life. One of my favorite memories with my dad is when he used to taking me fishing when I was little. Sometimes my mom would come and sometimes it would just be us. I look forward to spending time with him on Sunday.

    1. Hi Sam! That is a lovely memory of your father! 🙂

  37. I am really happy reading this post about dads and daughters You are doing a great job!

    1. Thank you so much! 🙂

  38. Adepoju Grace

    I hate to loose anybody. I’ve lost loved ones and I know how it feels. How about your real dad? Is he still alive?

    1. Hi Adepoju … Yes it is so hard to lose a loved one. My biological dad is still alive.

  39. Dads are the best and just like you I was also lucky enough to have a real dad and a step dad. And they’re both awesome, very different but the love and guidance they gave us, and still do, will always mean the world.

    1. Hi Michelle! I absolutely agree! 🙂

  40. Lovely article, I guess I bonded most with my dad when he drove me to school every morning. I was supposed to get the bus but missed it that often that I gave up on that idea and dad was happy to go via my school on his way to work!

    1. Hi Joanne! That is a sweet memory you share with your dad! I bet you had some great talks on the way to school! 🙂

  41. Karla

    Inspiring post. 🙂 I’m a daddy’s girl and has a great bond with my father when I was young. I’m so happy to have a great father growing up. Father’s day is coming and I want to give something for him. <3

    1. Thank you Karla! 🙂

  42. TravelTips

    Me as a girl can just be agree with you! there is something special between fathers and daughters

  43. My fondest memory of my dad is fishing at the river on the weekends. I truly loved forward to this time and it made a lasting impression on me.

    1. That is a lovely memory Maia! 🙂

  44. Loved reading your experience. The pictures are nostalgic. Cute baby outfit

    1. Thanks Surekha! 🙂

  45. This made me tear up. What a beautiful tribute to the wonderful fathers who you had. They’re both amazing! I have lost my father years back and I still miss him to this very day. Father’s day is such a great way to show them that we recognize their hard work and appreciate their sacrifices! Such wonderful gift ideas!

    1. Thank you so much Carol! I am so sorry you have lost a dad too… It is so hard…

  46. so nice that you were able to have that special moment with your stepdad before he passed.

    1. Thank you so much Janna…

  47. I didn’t have a great dad, but we had some good moments. Mostly at the end of his life. He passed away right before thanksgiving and right after my toddlers birthday. He had been sick for years. He always tried to treat my kids better and spoil them when he had money. I knew he realized he didn’t do well when I was growing up.

    1. Hi Misty… I am so sorry you have lost a dad too…

  48. huda shakib

    1. Thanks Chandler! I hope you have a great Father’s Day with your dad! 🙂

  52. These are some great gift ideas for Father’s Day. I love the little onesie, it’s adorable!

    1. Thanks Eileen! 🙂

    1. Hi Noelle! Those are wonderful memories! 🙂

  54. Lisa Rios

    Two fathers! Lucky duck 😉 What a blessing. My biological father has not been an active participant in my life, but I’ve had many wonderful father figures throughout my life. 🙂

    1. Hi Lisa! I’m so glad you had the chance to have so many wonderful father figures! 🙂

  55. This is such a nice post. Sounds like you shared a really special bond with your step dad. My dad and I are very close but I’ve been away from home for a few months so I’m flying back this week to spend Father’s Day with him, I can’t wait!

    1. Hi Emily! I’m so glad you get to spend Father’s Day with your dad! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Sharon! 🙂

  58. From your first sentence, I thought this was gonna be completely different but your story is just as delightful. You were very lucky to experience that special bond twice 😀

    1. Thank you so much Chaymaa…

  59. My husband is just like your dad, he takes my daughter everywhere with him. They are best buds! Growing up without a father of my own, that is what i loved most about my husband. He is just a such a great Dad and I know my daughter will grow up with those memories, just like you did!

    1. Hi Priscilla! Your daughter is blessed to have such a great dad! 🙂

  60. Vy Nguyen

    You’re so lucky as you received the love of both your dad and your stepdad. I really miss my dad when I read your blog.

  61. This was such a touching post. You are so very lucky to have had two wonderful father’s in your life. I am so very sorry for your loss of your step fathers.

    1. Thank you so much Nicole…

  62. These are such great gifts for fathers! I still need to get mine and my children’s father a gift!

    1. Thanks Britney! 🙂

  63. Ah such amazing memories. I have a few memories of my childhood but nothing special like yours. Your so lucky to feel so loved

  64. Chastity

    That’s wonderful you were able to experience the love of two dads. I sure it made the holiday so extra special for them and you. My memory would be just father daughter time. That could be movies dinner or taking the family on a weekend getaway! Hope you enjoy the holiday with your family this weekend!

    1. Thank you so much Chastity! 🙂

  65. Geraline Batarra

    This is such a nice post and I love reading it. I do believe that father and daughter really have a great bond like my daughter to his father I can see that she is more close to his father than mine. But on this Father’s Day we are going to celebrate it by spending time together, eating our favorite dish and watching our favorite movie.

    1. Hi Geraldine! That sounds like a lovely Father’s Day! 🙂

  66. I loved reading about the wonderful bond you share with your fathers. These gifts look great, the pillow is so cute!

    1. Thanks Vasundhra! 🙂

  67. I wonder if dads know just how important they are to their daughters? It is such an important relationship that needs to be nourished.

    1. Hi Stephanie! So very true… 🙂

  68. This made me tear up.. in a good way! I can relate to this , when I was little I went to work with my dad a lot. He was in the A/C business and I would go on calls with him and help. I knew almost every tool on the truck! Oh the things you can come up when your young! I miss those days like crazy! I enjoyed reading this. I’m sorry for your loss.

    1. Thank you so very much Mary…

  69. fathers day is one of my favorite days! i was such a daddys girl and i love shopping for him and cooking him dinner on this special day! great gift ideas too!

    1. Thanks Ashley! 🙂

  70. Cheers to all the dads out there. I definitely know that daddy’s girl feeling since I’m the only daughter among brothers. It’s nice in a way. And as much as you lost your dad, you still feel loved and blessed to have two dads.

    1. Thank you so much Darlene! 🙂

  71. I totally get that bond with your father, as I have it too and I am so fortunate that my daughter has it with my dad too.

    1. That is so lovely….

  72. Ann F. Snook-Moreau

    It’s awesome that you got to enjoy the love of two dads in your life 🙂 I am so fortunate to have a great relationship with my dad . . . he’s the best!

    1. That’s so great Ann! 🙂

  73. So sorry to hear about the loss of your Stepdad, he sounds like he was a great man! I have very similar memories with my father! He is a mechanic and pilot so he always took me on lots of adventures, whether it was to a tool store or in a hot air balloon, it was always a good time!

    1. Thank you so much Ayana! You have such lovely memories with your father!

  74. Waren Jean

    Such an inspiring story. For me I am also a daddy’s girl but they separated when I was 2. I seldom see my dad but he always make it to all important occasion and that makes me soo happy!

    1. Thank you Waren! 🙂

  75. Jen

    I know you realize this but you truly were blessed to have both a dad and bonus dad to love you like his own!

    1. Aww thanks so much Jen!! 🙂

  76. Awww I love this post! It’s always amazing seeing the bond between father and daughter. Even better, you were blessed to have two amazing fathers in your life! Great Father’s Day gifts too.. I’m stealing your ideas for my dad! Lol.

    1. Thanks Ashley! 🙂

  77. Erica Schwarz

    Aww I love that you had that experience with bot your dad and your stepdad. My husband is not my daughter’s father, but she might as well be. He adores her, as does her dad/my ex. Plenty of love to go around!

    1. Thanks Erica! 🙂

  78. Cindy s.

    What a beautiful post! Sorry for the lost of your father. I cam def tell the love you had for him! Cool gift items on your post too!

    1. Hi Sara! So true! 🙂

  80. This is such a sweet and special post hun! Love this so much!

    1. Thanks Danielle!!:)

  81. Preet

    I Love reading your blog this, is a touching story that you’re able to share to us. Having a Dad is such a give from above and be thankful that you have one. So in this case be good to him, if you able to reach all his dreaming for you and i think thats the best gift for him and love him unconditionally also with your mom. Thank you for sharing this is so beautiful story of yours!

    1. Thank you so very much Preet! 🙂

  82. This was very sweet. Step-parents aka bonus parents can be such a blessing! The thing my father and I always shared was education. He was very serious about academics and he instilled that in me by first introducing me to books. I may not have been able to have every toy I asked for, or fast food or sweets, or expensive trips with my friends, but I was always able to go to the bookstore with him and get all the books I could carry in my little arms haha

    1. Aww that is such a sweet memory Atembe!:)

  83. Preet

    Thank you for sharing this story of yours i do enjoy reading it. For me the best Father’s Day present to our that father is love them unconditionally, be good with them and achieve everything that they dreamed for you not just to him but also with your mom.

    1. Thank you Preet! 🙂

  84. Thank you for sharing your beautiful memories of your father. It gets hard, especially around the holidays. He is forever in your heart and memories.

    1. Thank you so much!

  85. Esme Sy

    Having two dads in a lifetime is a different but wonderful kind of blessing. One of my closest friends is in a similar situation and she can’t be more grateful for having two loving fathers. I’ll take note of these wonderful gift recommendations, thanks!

    1. Thank you Esme! 🙂

  86. These are such great Father’s Day Pics. Love the personalization! That pillow is too cute!

    1. Thanks Christie! 🙂

  87. It’s great that you had so many wonderful people that cared about you growing up. I really like these ideas for Father’s Day presents. When our son was a baby my fiance loved when he’d wear outfits that had anything to do with dad. Now that our son is older he is making him a card and helping with breakfast. There is always a special bond between a father and child. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Aww thanks so much Nicole!!! 🙂

  88. Some people believe sons need their fathers, but daughters need them just as much if not more. These are great ideas for gifts for a special Dad.

    1. Thank you Clara! 🙂

  89. those gift options are so creative..
    well 19 is very…… young, but that’s cool 🙂

    1. Hi Jefferson… I don’t think 19 is too young… I was 20 with my first son 🙂

  90. You are well blessed. The pillow is so personal and touching. I love that each item you shared seemed well thought out and caring. It can be hard to find things for dads who sometimes appear to have everything they want.

    1. Thank you Elle! 🙂

  91. There always is a special bond between a father and daughter! Thanks for the beautiful reminder!

    1. Your welcome Cris! 🙂

  92. Nailil

    These are great gift ideas. I especially like the custom pillow.

    1. Thanks Nailil! 🙂

  93. Sheree

    Love this idea for fathers day, the onsie is adorable and I love all the vintage pictures, so cute!

    1. Thank you Sheree! 🙂

  94. Oh I’m so sorry about your dad. It’s nice that you remember so much of him though and keep him alive in posts like this. That just goes to show you that money is nothing but memories can last forever.

    1. Thank you so very much Lexie… 🙂

  95. It really is wonderful how families can come in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. One of my best friends growing up was blessed to have two incredible men pour love into her as her father and step-father. When she got married, they both walked her down the aisle, one on each arm! It was such a beautiful moment with so much love and support.

    1. Hi Reese! What a lovely memory your friend has of her fathers!

  96. That is the sweetest things to read, I love the man cave sign!

    1. Aww thank you so much Ina! 🙂

  97. Brianna

    Thank you for sharing. I think that it is important for a daddy and daughter to have a strong bond. Happy Father’s Day!

  98. That little onsie is so cute! I love it!

    1. Hi Lydia! It is isn’t t it?!! 🙂

  99. I like the fact that your dad took you everywhere he went. Not everyone does that.

    For me personally, I appreciated it when dad took me to his office. I used to sit there pretend that I’m an employee, and when mom called dad to check up on us, I used to tell her that I was busy working with dad and “making his company the best in the country.”

    I was 5.

    1. Aww Omar that is such a sweet memory! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂

  100. You are so true. Though we cannot always remember our fathers, at least a formal day brings the opportunity for us to remember them and we should avail the opportunity.

  101. That is such a cute pillow. I would get that for my dad and have it from his grandkids.

    1. Hi Luci that’s a fabulous idea!

  102. Chris

    Really love the polaroid photos. I don’t know what it is, but they always instill a sense of nostalgia in me. Much more than any super high quality photo

    1. Thanks Chris! Me too!! 🙂

  103. Your post makes me so happy, such a beautiful story and read. You are lucky to have received so much love from your fathers. Great gift ideas, thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks so much Preet!

  104. Like you, I have a dad and a stepfather, and although growing up presented its challenges, as an adult I’ve always felt so blessed to have two fathers when a lot of kids don’t have any, and most have only one. My stepfather stepped up and continues to go above and beyond, and I’ll admit, I usually find the custom gifts for step parents lacking. He has been a constant in my life since I was six, while my dad lives states away. These are super cute ideas…I love the pillow and the mixology shaker, either would work!

    1. Thanks Ashley! You sound truly blessed!

  105. Pat

    Thanks for reminding me of my special dad. He died when I was only eight.

    1. I’m so sorry you had such loss at such a young age Jill…

  106. There’s a special relationship between dads and daughters that withstands the test of time.

    1. Hi Jill… so very true… 🙂

  107. Love

    So touched by your story! So true we girls will never be the same without our father’s love. 😊

  108. This brought tears to my eyes. There is nothing better than a bond between a daughter and a father. My stepfather and I have always had a rocky relationship, but I know he loves me and always will!

    1. Thank you so much Amanda…

  109. These are great Father’s Day gift ideas. Thanks for putting this list together.
