With Father’s Day approaching, I have asked a few cool dads to share with me their favorite Father’s Day gifts. I also asked them what dad really wants this year!
The results were actually a bit surprising. Don’y worry I only put the Frugal Living Approved answers here 🙂
1. DIY Craft From Kids
Nothing says “I love you more than A DIY project from a child. It can be as simple as a drawling to more complex like a key-chain or a painted coffee cup, either way the message is there. When i was younger the big thing was to make were friendship bracelets and I remember taking thread and knotting it together for hours for all my friends. I made one and tied it to a key-chain that my dad still uses for the shed out back, 20 years later!
2. Card From Wife and Children
Write individualized notes from each family member on a card and give it to him with a homemade breakfast. I love getting personalized notes from those I care about. I always keep a card if it has a special message on it.
3. Photos Of Them With Their Dad
Don’t just celebrate how great your dad is, remind him where he learned it all from with a surprise photo of him with his dad. If possible ask other family members for a photo or make it one he hasn’t seen in a long time. It adds to the sentimental value of the gift. You can even do a collage and put a photo of you and him next to it.
4. Home Cooked Meal/ BBQ
They say the way to a man’s heart is through is stomach right? Make him a nice home cooked meal or invite all the Dads you know and have a large BBQ. Nothing beats a nice day outside with those you love.
