Help! I need gift ideas for Father's Day!
Okay, I'm so far behind in everything that I haven't even started to come up with a Father's Day gift for Oronzo, my dad, and my father-in-law. Yes, I know it's Sunday.

I need some quick but personal gift ideas. I could do a personalized picture, like I'm doing for Baby Bug's dad, but I've done that in the past so I'm not sure if I should do it again.

Any suggestions for me?

I always try to think more in terms of time together, so I try to come up with something that my husband and daughter can do together - that always goes well. Best one was the water table!

Honey, you need to go check out some of the father's day crafts I've posted. I found some cute ideas.

Some favorites we have done are hand print or paitned tiles that are sealed and then put cork on the back for a trivet. Another one is hand print pillowcases. But I think the best one is hand and foot prints aprons.(I let my just walking baby walk all over the apron a few times.)

Hope that helps!

I did footprints on a shirt that said "my kids walk all over me" one year. For grandpa we did coffee mugs (there's a pottery paint place which is on the other end of town from us, but I think might be closer to you). We put the kids' handprints on the mug and let my oldest one do some decorating (my younger, we only had 2 at that time was a baby). I think it might need time to get fired and glazed, though. Not sure how long that took. Good luck!

I wish I could help, my husband sent me a link to what he wanted. . . a motorized speed boat (for the kids too of course he said)!

I did go to Kohls yesterday and I stocked up on a new pair of flip flops (the dog ate his old ones)
and some t-shirts. I am a boring practical person with the exception of the speed boat!
