I always struggle with coming up with a good idea for a Father's Day gift. My dad isn't into the typical "Father's Day" stuff that retail stores push right now: he doesn't drink beer, golf, fish, root for a particular sports team, fix things with duct tape or wear a tie on a daily basis. (The Mister doesn't fit any of those categories either, making things doubly difficult!) Two things my dad does like are 1) plants and 2) old stuff, so I decided to combine the two.
My dad was also in southern Colorado last weekend for my grandmother's estate auction, so I was able to give him his gift in person. This was vital because he lives 10 hours' drive away from me so mailing this gift was not an option!
For The Mister's gift, I used some of the AMAZING Star Wars printables from Sandy Toes and Popsicles. They turned out really, really cute! I'm so thankful that my friend Amy told me about them last week--she saved my bacon! If you have a Star Wars-lover in your life, go check out the printables--they are not Father's Day specific and could be used for a birthday party or any other occasion. They are clever and adorable and extremely easy to make.
What did you give to the Dads in your life this year? I need ideas for next year!
