Father’s Day Gift – Part 2

In addition to the printables the boys filled out for Derek, we put together a few snacks for him to take to work.

I bought 3 of these containers from Target

Filled them with snacks: honey roasted peanuts, “kisses for Dad,” & sweet candies

Wrapped a ribbon around the sides – secured with tape

Alex created some labels for each jar: Super Dad, #1 Dad, We love you

I desperately wanted to edit the labels Alex created by enlarging the word size, changing the font but I held back. How it looks is really not the point. In the end, Alex was so proud of his labels and so was I.

I chose these containers because they are stackable and would take up less space on Derek’s desk at work

At Target we also found some firework paraphenalia – pops & confetti bombs

So we made personalized sign covers for them. Cheesey I know.

Pop sounds like Derek is 75 years old but we just went with it

Here’s the final Father’s Day gift: the 3 containers, the father’s day printables, the dynamite gifts, and messages written on hand tracings. (Some people are having trouble printing out the printable. Please email and I will send you a copy if that happens.)

Andrew’s says, “You’re my best dad.”

For the record, Derek is Andrew’s only dad. 🙂

  1. I loved it. Since I got this a little early I’ve already started eating the cookies and cream Hershey Kisses. I didn’t even know they made cookies and cream versions.

  2. What a great idea! If you have a chance you should come over and see the FD gift ideas I posted on Friday!

  3. Those are really cute! Such a fun idea and I love that your kids designed it on the computer. That is wonderful. OH, and thanks for the cookies and cream Hershey kisses tip. I will definitely have to find some here.

  4. I love these! The little handprints are the perfect embellishment. Thank you for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. If you could please add a link back to me too, I would appreciate it. It helps me get the word out about my party. 🙂
