Fathers Day is fast approaching. Some of you may be done and dusted, others….still struggling for inspiration.
I am trying something a little different this year for my husband. He is one of those men that really does have all he needs/wants and when he needs/wants something new he will just go and get it. Meaning gift buying can be a little hard.
This year we are creating a Lucky Dip for him, with various items.
Throughout the day at regular intervals the kids will help him pull out a gift to unwrap, creating a day filled with gift giving and reminders of why we love and honour him.
I did a Lucky Dip for my Mothers birthday last year and found it worked really well. My mother enjoyed the excitement of new little discoveries and the kids got SO excited about giving her gifts all day.
Of course to keep this cost effective, the idea is that the gifts are small and fairly inexpensive, and for my husband…fairly practical.
If you are strapped for ideas, want to involve the kids and don’t want to spend too much- maybe this is something you could try too.
A few ideas that you could incorporate into a Lucky Dip are:
Coffee flask/keep my cup
Favourite Coffee Beans
Favourite Tea bags
Voucher for Favourite coffee shop
Book- for him
Book- to read to the kids
Game/Activity- for him
Game/Activity- for the kids
Deck of Cards
Packet of seeds or bulbs
Calendar for 2020
Craft/gift created by the kids
Small bottles of favourite liquor
Ball- golf, cricket, soccer, football…
I aimed to have enough items to open one every hour. The kids enjoyed picking some random things they thought he would like- a few they will like more than him, but there is still Joy in that.
Even little things can add up when you are buying lots, so I tried to keep to a budget.
Fathers Day is SO much more than gifts. Our honour and adoration for the men in our lives can be expressed and enjoyed in So many different ways.
Hope you find value in however you spend Fathers Day this year.
Much Love… Rachel xx
