It’s June, which means Father’s Day is around the corner. And with that comes the hunt for a gift. Luckily I’ve come up with a gift that only varies slightly from year to year. But by no means is it boring.
Each year, I buy a children’s book for my husband. I write a little note in the book from the kids. Since the kids are still little, I choose the book and I write the note myself. This year I will also be able to include what Gaby wants to say in the message. But the kiddos do “sign” it. As they get older I imagine that I will take their input in the book selection and they will write their own messages themselves.
While my husband states that he doesn’t need anything for Father’s Day, that’s not going to work for me. But instead of getting him something that he may or may not really want, I want to gift him something that he can use with the kids. I know that at some point the kids will be “too old” to be read to, but really that day is far off. Spending time reading to our children is so wonderful. We absolutely love it (well, except for the random books we have that we cannot stand!). And why not get something that brings our family together.
What Father’s Day traditions do you have?
