First of all, happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there. I was blessed with two (my real dad and my stepdad, who I lived with full time as he was married to my mom). My children are equally blessed with their dad; I couldn’t ask for a better father for them.
I saw this idea on Friday and knew it was perfect for the hubs this year.
He needed new socks, and since socks aren’t a very “fun” gift, I decided we should at least present them in a creative way. Before we went shopping, I showed Seahawk and Munchkin the picture of the bouquet so they wouldn’t be “bummed” about offering a practical gift. My plan worked; they were super jazzed to help pick out the socks and then to roll them into roses and arrange them into a vase (well, mason jar) when we got home.
We used a paper grocery bag to cover the gift since it wasn’t really something that lended itself to wrapping very easily. When hubs revealed his gift yesterday morning, his reaction was priceless. He’d never received socks in such a creative way before. He’s even decided to leave them wrapped up as roses except as needed, so we’ll have the “beautiful flowers” around for at least 10 days (I found a great deal on a 10-pack of men’s socks).
I hope your fathers and children’s fathers had a blessed day as well.
