And Last but not Least Number 5



Now Hear me out Wonder woman is the epitome of amazing, its in her name "Wonder" She can put a beat down on the same level as Superman, she is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant. She has an array of weapons to choose from. She is fast and durable. Wonder woman is synonymous with the one Dads have spent their life with raising children. The best gift you can give your children's father is being the person who he fell in love with 24/7, 365. You may not have super speed, flight or can crush a tank but he loves you for who you are. That being said one of those gifts would be pretty awesome too.

This rounds up our list, we wish you all a Happy Fathers Day and many more to come :).
