Not Your Typical Father’s Day Gifts

Father’s Day is right around the corner! Now that our daughter is older she is beginning to understand how special it is to celebrate family. She was the cutest on Mother’s Day and she can’t wait to celebrate daddy next month. So we have been working on a few secret gifts. My husband’s love language is gifts so we like to find things that aren’t your typical father’s day gifts.

Dear Daddy Poem: Last year we wrote a poem for dad and he loved it. Personalize it by adding fun and unique details about your relationship with daddy. It’s so special to go back and reread each year.

Father’s Day Craft: Our daughter loves to craft so we’ve made things for daddy’s office in the past. It’s such a cute way to celebrate dad and give him something to show off at work! I love finding crafts with kid’s handprints. Find fun craft ideas for Father’s Day on our Pinterest page.

Make his Favorite Dinner: They say food if the way to a man’s heart. So why not make him his favorite meal or dessert? Be sure to involve your children in the process! Kids love to help in the kitchen. Dad will feel so special to have a meal made with love.

So what did we decide on? We couldn’t wait to give daddy his new watch so he got it a little early this year. He’ll have to wait for the rest of the gifts! 😉 He has only worn the watch a few days and has already received so many compliments. It’s perfect for casual everyday wear as well as work attire. Izzy loves looking at his watch and trying to figure out what time it is. We usually get something like “It’s 12, 1 o’clock.” 🙂 Our daughter also helped me brainstorm some fun date night ideas. She can’t wait to do this with her daddy!
