Kim - from 2 just B you: At school one year, we made Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts at the same time (school always got out before Father's Day, so it was great that the teacher did this). I made matching picture frames, one for Mom and one for Dad. And I remember being so proud of how they turned out. I had rushed home to unwrap them, put photos in, and then re-wrapped them! 
 
Laurie - from Created By Laurie: My Father is away from home a lot for his work, so he really tries to relax when he is home. While he was away one time my younger brother sold his Xbox and all of his games for money. He didn’t have the funds to replace it so he was really disappointed. I bought a replacement along with a handful of games. It was put in an old Xbox box, so when he first opened his gift his eyes light up, “You bought me an Xbox?” “No,” I said laughing, “I just used the box” His smile went away for a second until he opened the box. “You did!” It felt great to give something back to him after he has done so much for me. 


*Co Host*
Amanda – from Jedi Craft Girl: My most memorable Father's Day gift? Hmmm....I can't really recall a specific gift for my father (that's kind of embarrassing). Every year I help my children make their daddy a mix book. We include pictures from the past year, highlights & memories. I ask the children questions about daddy like, if you had $1,000, what would you buy daddy? Or what is daddy's favorite thing to do in his free time? We do about 10 of these questions and put the answers in the book. We get a kick out of reading the books years later and seeing how everyone's answers change. Now it’s YOUR turn! What was your most memorable Father's Day gift you gave to your dad?

Thanks for hosting! I think the best gift I ever gave my dad was a clay handprint I made when I was a kid. He kept it on his desk. :)

I really don't remember for my own dad, but I remember for my husbands first fathers day, I strung 50ish cards on twine crossing our living room with reasons why he was a great father :)

Thanks for hosting this!

When I was in grade 6, I made a card for him, painted his name on it, wrap and gave it to him. It was a casual thing but when he opened it, he didn't say anything but thanked me. After two days my mum told me that you spelt his name wrong. I can never forget this.

I was maybe 9 years old & my sister was 5 - we made my dad "Jam Dandies" in our "Easy Bake Oven" for Father's day one year. That might have been the first year that I started baking as gifts for other people.
Thanks again for hosting!

A little late to the party, but I'm sure glad I attended!

Darlene Nemeth said...

You know - it's weird - I don't remember a single Father's Day let alone a special gift. You'd think I would remember something. I shouldn't feel guilty I didn't have many years with my dad.

Thanks for hosting Kim.

Bye for now, Darlene
