It can be hard to find the right gift for dad’s. My husband always buys everything he wants or needs, which makes gift giving a little difficult sometimes. Instead of going out and spending money on something he doesn’t really need, I prefer to give my husband a Father’s Day gift that the kids and I can make.
I made this lovely work of art a few years ago for my hubby’s Father’s Day Gift. I wanted to give him a cute and meaningful gift that he’d cherish for years to come. At the time, money was tight, so I wasn’t able to go out and buy much of anything. This gift was inexpensive, simple to make, and thoughtful. It’s the perfect gift. The frame was about a dollar at Walmart, I already had the construction paper at home so I didn’t need to buy any, and I printed the photo and poem out on the printer.
If I were to make this again now there’s a few things I’d change. First of all I’d get the picture printed on photo paper. It’ll look much better than having it printed on printer paper. However, if you’re like I was, with not much to spend, printer paper works fine. Instead of using construction paper, if you have card stock that might be a better option as the construction paper has faded over time. I found the perfect poem online by searching for “Father’s Day Poems”.
It goes like this:
Prints of my little feet
Then you can remember when
I was small and sweet
I will grow
And baby days
Will all be in the past
But you can know my love for you
will forever last.
I LOVE the poem! It’s so touching and reminds you just how fast kids grow up. If you’re looking for a simple and thrifty gift idea for your husband this Father’s Day, try this out! You could also make this for Grandpa. Just change the wording as you see fit.
