My husband loves to fish, so the family is making him a picture of a fish out of fish hooks and fishing line. After it is all glued on the board it will be framed.

My children and I have decided to surprise my husband with a trip to Disney World! He loves Disney, and we have been picking up little figurines and Disney things at garage sales. We plan on making him a big breakfast, and putting the figurines on his tray, and then handing him his card with all the trip info in it! Of course, the kids are making Mickey Mouse waffles!! cdziuba@aol.com

My husband never asks for anything. He works two jobs to help us make ends meet and we spend money cautiously and stick to a budget. Just recently my husband was admiring my brothers GPS unit. Our kids usually give him home made gifts and usually my husband and I don't buy gifts for each other, but this year, we got my husband a GPS. We can't wait to give this to him. We know that he'll be so thrilled.
Thanks for this giveaway.

We are taking him out for brunch and then giving him a sketchbook of his life so far with our kids.

We have recently moved from home in Tennessee to Idaho. I am giving my dad two weeks with his grand kids. They really miss having him around all the time.

Heather said...

I am making a DVD of pictures for my dad. It has pictures of the grandkids, kids, and then special ones of just him and me. I'm going to have a letter that I am writing to him in the background about how much I appreciate him. They are going to play it at church on Father's Day and surprise him. He's a great father and deserves only the best this year and every year.

I'm buying my husband a left-handed wrench.He always teases me about a left handed wrench,well i finally found one in a joke store.

Indy Girl said...

I'll be giving my husband new trees (planted in the yard) - he's been wanting to buy and plant them for the past year, but has been too busy. I'm going to have it done for him!

LINDALSHOT said...

It's not terribly created but my dad loved to go to ballgames.
He also liked old-time banjo music so I could've made him a special DVD of all banjo music.

jenni d. said...

My dad has always admired an old weather vane I own. I found a blacksmith who could duplicate it and will be giving him this for fathers day.

Kristy Blanco said...

My dad's dreamis to travel the world- but alas, the finances are lacking. Instead, last year I gave him 5 different gift cards to 5 retaurants. Which ones? Italian, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, and Cuban! Now he can travel the [culinary] world in his hometown. He absolutely loved it!

sillelin said...

Take your dad fishing - he will love it.

Meredith said...

Oh.please No!
Not another Tie!
I'll never ever wear it!
I cannot tell a lie!

Just give me something sporty,
Just something I can use,
As long as its not frilly,
I don't care what you choose!

How about tickets to my favorite team?
Or wash and wax my car?
Not socks or underwear,
It will make me want to scream!

And don't forget that great big hug.
I want that most of all.
It's wonderful now when you're small,
And will also be the best
As you grow real tall!

LIDARKSIDE said...

Just a nice dinner and a quiet day at home with our family.

babakers5 said...

For Father's Day I plan on waking my husband up around 5:30am (the fishing's good at that time), getting a quick bite to eat and the five of us have a day out on the water fishing for our dinner...he is a fisherman and these are the moments he loves the most. Having a packed lunch, fishing bate and the water to fish with is a spectacular gift in the making. At the end of the day is cake and gift time (after we've cooked our daily catching)...A new fishing basket filled with all the items needed to have a great "next" trip out on the water. Cake; well his favorite is Italian creme cake (which I've learned to make quite well over the last fourteen years), and finally, after the kids are tucked into bed it's mom and dads turn to enjoy the evening in celebration of fathers.

Great contest!!!!

littlelatina said...

After he comes home from work because he works on weekends I am hoping to take him out to dinner since the last time we went out to dinner was at the beginning of my pregnancy - My son is 13 months now (its been a while)

imjasonc said...

get him a coffee mug with "#1 dad" printed on it.

Erica G said...

A calendar! We are making one at one of the photo sites so we can use pictures of our family. You can make them at home, too. Once mine gets here, I am going to fill it in with important dates (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.). I think I may also get him tickets to a concert or sporting event and mark that date in the calendar as an added surprise.

K.Cleaver said...

We're planning a surprise Father's Day this year. We don't make big deals out of commercial holidays. You're in sad shape if you have to have a calender to tell you how to make someone feel special.

Anyway, my husband works on odd shift that week, so I'll be able to go to the Lake and set up our camping site then surprise him by taking him "out" to eat. My kids are going to make desert and I'll make a nice dinner at camp.

My dad will be with us and it will be the first time he's camped in 25 years. We use to camp all the time when I was little.

Mya said...

I'm flying 3000 miles to Alabama from Washington to spend the entire month with my dad. He just turned 70, so any time spent with him is precious. He was just diagnosed with prostate cancer, and is going in for surgery the 16th of this month.

Katie S. said...

This year finances are a bit a tight because my husband has been gracious enough to let me stay home from work to raise our two kids. But I want him to know how special he is, so the kids are going to make daddy something special from Color Me Mine and I am not going to nag him for an entire day (which believe me, is very tough).
Thanks for the fun contest!

Jeanne St. James said...

One father's day gift I gave was a photo of me when I was little (about 4 yrs old and cute!) in a big recliner. I had it put on a coffee mug. He was very surprised and delighted for the reminder that his 40 yr old daughter was once a little girl.

julie said...

Start a video diary from my daughter ...a tradition each year she adds a father's day love commentary...can you imagine him watching this on the day before his daughter gets married?! priceless!

chuck82380 said...

Give your father a gift card to a golf course and set the date for his tee time. While he is out playing. Have a lawn service come over and cut the grass for him so he doesn't have to do it. When he gets back have a glass of tea set outside for him and cook him some bbq outside for a great cap to the day.

mogrill said...

My daughter put her hands in paint and made to "Flowers". By putting her hands on paper and than drawing a stem and leaves below the handprint, it looks like a beautiful flower. Than we are framing it!

D. said...

Dad always washes our cars when he comes to visit us. This time we'd like to visit him---and get up early on Father's Day so one of us can run to Starbucks for a cup of his favorite coffee and pick him up a newspaper while the others make him his favorite waffle and egg breakfast. Then when he finally settles down with his fresh Starbucks and news, we'll all go outside to the front driveway and wash HIS truck!!

Susan said...

One thing my dad always loved was when we would take some of the old pictures we had at home and have them made onto a video. It always made him cry. Now, they can be made onto a DVD.

catherine said...

My dad always appreciates a very special letter that describes the things we used to do, places he used to take me and songs we used to sing. He is 88 now and those are what he loves now are happy memories.

Monique said...

I live on the opposite coast from my dad so I don't get to be with him for Father's Day very often. This year I am going to be visiting him for my half-sister's high school graduation, which happens to be a few days before Father's Day. This will be the first time ever that my sister, half-sister and myself will be together with my Dad for Father's Day. It will be so special! I am making t-shirts with iron-on transfers for each of us. My Dad's will say "Incredible Dad!" with a picture of Mr. Incredible on it. And the sister's shirts will say "My Dad is Incredible!", also with a picture of Mr. Incredible. I can't wait to get pictures!

Shelley said...

Although finances are too tight this year, I really wanted to give my husband a ManCave for Father's Day!! Just a small place in the house he can call his own. I would install cable (and program his favorite shows to record on the DVR) and a computer with internet access, so he can get his game on (he's a big gamer). I would also make sure there is a mini-fridge, stocked with his favorite beverage (which happens to be mountain dew). And of course, I wouldn't forget the big, comfy recliner, with a nice fleece blanket for those cold Sundays watching football. I would also put photos and posters of his favorite sports team (NE Patriots), and other things he enjoys, like fishing. Oh, and photos of me and the kids, so he remembers to come out once in a while!!

Rachel Fox said...

2 years ago, I moved 2,300 miles from my parents. We aren't able to be together on Fathers Day. I always send him a card and a gift basket. I surely miss being his little girl and getting to ride his motorcycle with him! That was OUR bonding time! He probably enjoied it because I was talker, and the bike was so loud, he didn't get to hear a word I said!!

Casey H said...

On my hubbys first fathers day I made breakfast and sent him on a scavenger hunt around the house, I didnt have much money at all to get him something big so having the little hunt for his little gift made it seem so much bigger!

Dad's gone now.

On Father's Day I'll plant an oak tree in his memory because our family name means "of the oaks".

The tree can be where his sons and daughters and grandchildren and great-grandchildren, on down generations and through the ages, can gather to tell stories about who he was, what he did, how he worked, when he sacrificed, where he traveled and what he gave to all of us.

Toystory said...

I wanted to get hubby a new leaf blower as our is close to dead...but being the frugal couple we are --- he is instead buying a new gas tank (over 50 bucks) for the one we have and repairing it. So that's his present, a new gas tank for a leaf blower~~ odd to say the least.

gcuvier said...

My dad loves to cook but lives in a small, rural town, so he has trouble getting ingredients locally. I'm making up a basket full of spices and gourmet ingredients so that he can pursue his favorite hobby without the frustration of not having that one exotic ingredient he needs.

Kelly said...

One of the most fun gifts is a basket full of nostalgia. Find out what dad liked as a kid--G.I. Joes? Mr. Ed? Superman comics? Then search flea markets, antique stores, and online shops for pieces from the past. Maybe he never got that G.I. Joe in the 1960s, but you can find a 1960s G.I. Joe for him today!

American Mum said...

My husband is a gadget guy and getting him the perfect gift often is out of the budget. So this year, he's getting a day geared around him. I'll be making his favorite treats in the kitchen (no nagging about eating healthy!) and we'll be spending the day doing activities he likes to do. Of course this is complete with homemade cards from the kids.

For my dad, it's easy. He loves pictures. He'll be getting a personalized photobook of his grandkids - a gift he's sure to love!

ababe28 said...

I'm going to take my daughters father out to dinner...Since money is very tight, I am going to use a gift card I got as a gift...and the restaurant is really nice! It's a Jazz place and he always talks to his brother about wanting to go there...I'm also going to call his brother and ask him if he would like to come along!

We are giving my husband the day off...he gets to play golf with his brother and friends.

Mirka said...

My Dad loves wine! Throughout the year I save wine corks from bottles we have shared at family gatherings. I then take the corks and hot glue gun them to a frame and put a picture of my Dad and I in it. And of course he gets a bottle of wine with it too! Try it... it's easy, fun to make and a makes a great personal gift for any wine lover!

ky2here said...

A great gift for my father is a pair of tickets for his favorite basketball team - IU. Plus a hotel room in bloomington and the special edition roster book with all the stats, photos and other crap.

Tonya said...

Make a "We love you because.." book. Buy or make a blank journal and some colored pencils, crayons, markers ad stickers. Have your kids each give reasons why they love their dad and write "We love you because... and one reason on each page with that child's name and let each child decorate their pages. Mom can also write reasons why she loves him too. We did this for my hubby at christmas, but it would be better for Father's Day.

I would get him some fancy car wash, synthetic oil, and other stuff for his brand new car. He'd never get it otherwise.

Joan Tripp tripperbrown1963@att.net said...

Even though my father has been deceased since 1992, I still remember him on Father's Day. I pack a special lunch and have lunch with my dad at his grave.

His favorite drink was a Manhattan, so I take one of those as well.

SpicyOne said...

Try making it his day - anything he wants to do, all day long. If that turns out to be watching sports on
TV and eating corn chips, be excited
about that.

jjampm said...

My kids are getting my husband a day just for him. We'll go on a short hike, swim at the Y, and browse an electronic store. At every meal we will have some sort of hot dog or sausage (His favorite forbidden food) and hopefully some starbucks. Oh Lord, I hope I make it through the day... stupid awesome Mother's Day! :) (kidding it'll be fun) Thanks for the giveaway!

We got him a horseshoe set and a magnet with all of us dressed in our New England Patriots gear for his desk at work :)

Nicole said...

If I could round up the right pictures for it, I'd love to make my dad a calendar that starts in June (1. for Father's Day, 2. the month I was born) and have a picture from my birth up through my first year.

tesashel225 said...

I've never seen my Dad, which means he's never seen me, so I would send him a photo album of me growing up and pics of my kids now, just to show him how well we've done without him!

chas said...

A day for golf and dinner with the kids we do this every year because thats his favorite thing to do.

quitecontrary1977 said...

my poor dad had had 4 heart attacks in the last 2 months. As a result, he was put on a strict vegan diet. So I'm going to make him a a whole wheat, carob dairy-free/egg-free cake.. eww.. its better than nothing!

mom2gabnnat said...

I help my daughters make a t-shirt for Father's Day for my husband. They put their handprints, names, year, and sometimes other decorations with fabric paint and markers. It's fun to see how much of a change there has been from previous years and he proudly wears them too.

I will definitely buy something fishing related. That is his favorite passtime.

We are all grown, and spread out in differant states. My dad, being a creature of habit, listens to the same radio show on Sundays. I call, and request a song. I name all three of us and tell everyone what a great dad he is, knowing his friends are listening. It really brightens his day.

monky said...

My dad has always thought he has a good singing voice (the rest of the famiy isn't so sure :-)

Were going to surprise him by taking him to make his own record. He is going to be totally shocked and thrilled at the same time.

This gift is something he would never expect to get in a million years!

penguin28 said...

Idea #1
Find out what the #1 song was the year your dad was born and the year you were born (from a son or daughter) or if it's for your husband- the year he was born and the year your kids were born. Then search the internet or stores that sell old 45's. Find a cool frame to mount them in.

Idea #2
Try to find a picture of your dad with his dad when he was little. Then find a picture of you with your dad when you were little. Find a frame that holds 2 photos and you have a special cherished memory. If it's for your husband- find a photo of him with his dad when he was little and put a photo of him with your kids in a similar frame.

windycindy said...

Greetings, My elderly dad has had blurry vision for about 2 years now. His eye specialist had told him that he needed corneas, but with his macular degeneration, the surgery may cause him to go blind. My sister and I finally worried so much about him wanting to live alone and be independent, we decided to finally see another specialist. We were sent to a man who said that what the first doctor said about blindness was false! To make a long story short, dad has had two new corneas and can see pretty well again. His mobility is better and he can see my sons playing baseball again!!!!! That can be good or bad. LOL He keeps thanking us for taking care of him and for his renewed site. It is almost a miracle. I would love to win this for my older sister because she and her husband are coffee lovers deluxe! By the way, our dad will be turning 90 years young in July! Many thanks, Cindi

Something he always jokes about and this time he gets it.

my dad isn't with me anymore and i truly miss him. i would treat my dad to bingo and a great homecooked meal. wrap my arms around him with a really big hug and tell him i love him and he's the best.

My dad has just about everything you could imagine so I got him a giftcard to Bass Pro Shops.

Give dad what he gave you. If he spent time playing with you do the type of play he likes-in my case my husband like to bike, camp canoe etc. I encourage my sons to taketheir dad to do what he likes
