Father's Day is around the corner so of course I will write a post about the one special day dedicated we honor our Fathers. Sadly, I am aware Dads aren't as celebrated as Mothers when it comes to giving gifts. Is it because it is so difficult to find the right gift? Or we can't afford to get him the gifts he really wants? I have discussed this topic with my husband on many occasions and his answer is always the same, "I like gifts from the heart and hands."
Actually, most Dads will tell you they don't expect or want anything; however, another necktie in his closet probably isn't what his heart desires, though he will most likely smile, hug you and thank you for the lovely tie. Gifts from the heart are those you have put time into thinking of him, his hobbies, his favorite foods, movies and activities. Gifts from the hands are wonderful as they express your love, gratitude and admiration for the man you call Dad.
If you have been wondering what you could possibly give the man you think has everything, or feel your crafting skills are less than dazzling, stop that! Dads have deep appreciation for gifts that are handmade just for them or for gifts that give him recognition for working the toughest gig ever - Fatherhood.
If you haven't found any grand ideas or just the right way to express to your Dad how much you appreciate and love him, try out a few of the awesome ideas shared here to get you started. There is no need to spend a lot of money and you don't have to be an artist in the kitchen. As long as you make one of the key materials or ingredients "love", your gift will always be treasured.
I believe the best gift we can give them is our time and attention and to acknowledge they are central to our lives. I'm interested in knowing what plans you are making for a gift to the special man in your life; please feel free to share your ideas and thoughts in the comment section below. Until the next post, I wish you much inspiration and success!
