Freshen Up Friday

You probably already know it, but this is Father's Day weekend!  It's our turn to honor our own fathers, as well as our children's daddy.  In case you need a few ideas, I thought I'd share a few of the favorite things I've seen.

Now that dessert is taken care of, how about a few clever gift ideas?  I love this Tie Pillow!  If you had some sentimental ties you hated to discard, this is a great use for them - and it's far from tacky! =)

Patterned Necktie Pillow

These Map drink coasters are a great idea.  How about using a map of his home state or a vacation place your family loves?

Father's Day Ideas

Simple ideas:

  • A jar filled with Reeses Pieces and a tag on the jar - We love you to pieces!
  • A bucket filled with all the necessary items to give his car a good wash and wax
  • Coupons to do chores for him, for extra hugs, back rubs or a game of checkers.
  • Give him the day off and do his chores for him!
  • A basket filled with his favorite snacks for watching the baseball game on TV.
Love this napkin fold...for Father's Day dinner!

Whatever you do, Dad will love your efforts.  It's the mom who initiates all these great ideas, so get thinking and plan a special day for the man your kids call "Dad.!"

I hope you're planning on being in church Sunday!  We're looking forward to a great day with Dr. Jim Binney as a guest speaker all day for our "Straight 2 The Heart" Conference.  Hope you can join us for all the services!

Be refreshed,
