Father’s Day Craft & Gift Ideas

This Father’s day has extra special significance to us because last Father's day was the day that we found out I was pregnant with Pipi. (Looking back at that post from last year I can see how much the kids have grown, and then comparing to year before even more so – having a blog comes in useful for that kind of thing.)

Popsicle Stick photo frame

Noah had already made a pretty awesome Father’s day present for Andrew at his preschool – (see end of this post); so yesterday Isabelle and I decided to make Andrew something from her – a popsicle stick photo frame.

… And here are a couple of other gift ideas for Dad that I’ve rounded up off the web:

Cool cards from idear. I got my Dad the 'Raising me' card this year (although it’ll be a little late, sorry Dad) and Andrew got the 'You are my Father' card last year.

Or how about this train play mat back massage T-shirt from Not socks gifts. Who knew playtime could be so relaxing?…Or these Pac Man cuff links also from Not socks gifts?

And finally what about magnetic letters from Tinch? Perfect for attaching photos of the kids and Dad to the fridge or other magnetic surface.

So my gift guide is a little last minute, but if your Dad/husband is anything like mine they don’t mind a last minute/ late gift – or failing that a foot massage/ pancakes in bed/ box of scorched almonds always seems to hit the spot.

And here’s Noah’s gift to Andrew – so sweet, I love the mixture of nuts and bolts and foam flowers…

I suggested those Me & Dad magnets on my blog too- I bought them for Fathers Day three years ago and they are still on my fridge. A really great gift!
