I love giving gifts! So any chance to tell others about cool gifts, makes me happy. We happen to be coming up on Father's Day so these gifts would be great for those people in your life who father. They'd also be great for anyone! Holidays that pinpoint a specific type of receiver are tricky for lots of reasons so I just think of them as a way to spread some joy to whoever needs it. Shop these links and tell them that Taking the Middle Seat sent you!

I hope your people feel like you've taken the middle seat right next to them when you give them these gifts.
