What to do for a dad that has celebrated Father’s Day for the past 26 years? He’s been given and seen it all. Which means we have to get creative around here. We want the day to feel special and never looked over.
When Bruce’s daughter’s were in their teens we would come up with something to do or to give to celebrate their day with their dad. One year it was them finding a sweet picture from the past that they thought their father would love and framing it. So simple yet when received it was very touching. Another year we did a joint celebration with our friends that are father’s and had a brunch all together. We still talk about that brunch even though it was 8 years ago!
I really think its about the thought and time you put in to making something special...
One of my favorite gifts was a simple DIY project I did for Mabel’s first Father’s Day. We traced (at the time) all 4 of the girls’ hand’s and I did a collage with them. Had it mounted, framed and voila. I really think its about the thought and time you put in to making something special for someone you love, it’s not about the price tag.
This year I’m toying with the idea of taking the girls to the nursery and buying some plants/flowers that the girls can plant with their dad in our garden. My husband has a green thumb so I think he would really like the sentiment. And then they can keep tending to the plants after the fact. The gift that keeps on giving (and hopefully growing!)
Is their a favorite gift you’ve done for a special father in your life? Would love to hear about it because I need some new ideas!
From my home to yours,
