Fathers day is fast approaching. This year it falls they day after my 'big' birthday so its hard to forget. So I thought I'd share some ideas on how to show Daddy he is loved and appreciated.
Home made gifts always go down well and are a great activity to keep kids entertained. It doesn't need to be anything fancy. A card decorated with stickers of cars or a lovely picture frame hand decorated with gems or coloured in with sharpies. For mothers day my 2 girls decorated the house with home made posters telling me they loved me. This was far more precious than the mug that they brought to add to the collection of other mum mugs I have in the cupboard.
Personalised 'Dad' gifts. Silly socks or 'best dad' trophy. He may feel a little silly wearing them but you bet the kids will have a big grin on their face when he does. I particularly liked this book from 'Not on the High Street', personalised with things about Dad that will also encourage early reading together.
Fingerprint jewellery. There are lots of companies online that make these wonderful keepsakes. I have a beautiful necklace that has my girls hand and footprints on. I have also seen stunning mens cufflinks, leather effect male brackets and keyrings with fingerprints on. A perfect gift to treasure always.
What about an activity they can share. I found this fun steam engine experience for two, perfect if Daddy loves old trains.
You can't go wrong with a beautiful family photograph. I bet there are loads of pictures of your children around your home but how many of them contain Mummy and Daddy too? My kids favourite pictures are the ones that include me too. It doesn't need to be a professional photo. Pictures from fun days out make great talking points when on display. Alternatively consider a voucher for a family photo shoot so you can update your professional family portraits.
