Father’s Day Count Down

Fathers day is coming fast! We only have one more week to find something for our dads. I know I blogged about this a little bit ago but most people probably haven’t bought their gifts yet and could use a refresher.

I decided to take a different spin on this. Think of it from a childs perspective. You could always buy something and say that it is from your kid but we all know the truth. Kids can’t exactly log onto the web and order something from themselves and if they can then that kid is dangerous and should be stopped.

So what are some ways kids can give their dads a great gift and it actually mean something?

First of all, if your kids are old enough to at least write you could print out this cute memo that lets the kids fill in the blanks and tell their pops why they love them so.

Even though this seems like more of a mothers day idea, what dad doesn’t want to know why his kids love him? Even if he pretends its lame, look for that glimmer of a tear in his eyes that I know will be there.

Here is another cute idea that lets the kids get a little more “Hands-on” (lol)

Just cover your kids hands in green paint and gently press it on a piece of paper that you have already printed the words “Happy Fathers Day 2015″ (or whatever you want it to say) on. This example creates a tree but you could always do something else too. It puts a nice spin on the old hand to turkey craft from Thanksgiving.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure you celebrate dad! You would not be here without him. Whether you do an at home BBQ with the family or a big sha-bang with the neighborhood just do something!

Fathers Day!

Fathers Day is right around the corner, June 21st to be exact. How are you going to celebrate the most important man in your life? Will you take him out to dinner? A ball game? Or maybe have a big BBQ? Whatever you decide to do don’t forget to celebrate Dad. Without him you would not be here, but I am not here to give a “Birds and the Bees” talk. No, I am here to talk about what to buy your dad!

Not every dad is the same. Some dad’s like sports while some, like my dad, could care less. So how do we shop for him? If your dad is like my dad then he is a man of few words that “never wants anything.” This makes shopping for him extremely difficult! This is why I have to be sneaky. I have to kind of spy on my dad. When we go shopping I pay close attention to the things he looks at. What does he pick up? What does he ponder over for a long time? What does he put back and why? These are important questions that need to be answered.

After watching my dad for a while I realized he is a huge The Walking Dead fan. Like massive. I can’t think of a time where I saw him watch anything other than The Walking Dead. Even though all of the seasons are on Netflix, he owns all of the DVD’s. He also owns a Walking Dead sweatshirt.

I’m not going to go out and buy him a Daryl Dixion poster (that’s for me). But I did go to CafePress and search “Walking Dead Apparel”. CafePress has everything from shirts, to glasses and zombie survival gear. I think my dad would love this Carl and Rick Grimes Mens Fitted Shirt.

What is your dad a superfan of?
