Celebrations: father’s day round up

Pin It
Father’s Day is fast approaching and guess what? I’ve run out of time to create a new Father’s Day project to share with you. I think Father’s Day should be moved to another month. Between end-of-school activities, teacher gifts, graduations and everything else, Father’s Day always catches me by surprise. Does anyone else feel that way?

I did round up a nice assortment of Father’s Day inspiration to share with you. Some of these ideas can be done quickly so if you’re like me, we better get moving on our Father’s Day cards, gifts and treats.

And, in case you missed it, this was one of my Father’s Day gift ideas from last year. A Father’s Day coffee sampler. Little one-pot servings of different flavors of coffee. I made individual bags out of kraft paper and added fun labels. The gift box was covered in brown pinstriped fabric. You can see the post here.


Thanks for visiting.

Celebrations: father’s day coffee sampler

If dad doesn’t need another tie or tool, here’s a little gift that he may enjoy.

Assemble a coffee sampler gift box just for dad.

For this gift box, I made miniature coffee bags out of kraft paper. I glued the bottom and sides together using a glue stick. Each bag is filled with a one-pot portion of a different blend of coffee.

The tops are folded down and held together with a wire twist tie that I covered in masking tape. Now they look just like the bags of coffee you purchase at gourmet coffee houses.

I printed out fun labels for each bag; Big Daddy Kona, Manly Mocha Java, Perfect Pop Jamaican, Excellent Dad Espresso, and Father’s French Roast.

I had the perfect size box for my coffee bags and covered it in a coffee-brown pinstripe fabric.

Add a mug, coffee cozy or coffee gift card for an extra special gift. After all, dad deserves it.

Celebrations: father’s day fire starter kit

Now that we’ve gone from indoor fireplace to outdoor fire pit weather, what better gift for dad than a mini fire starter kit.

Sure those long butane lighters are handy but there’s something about starting a fire the old fashioned way with newspaper, twigs and matches that makes you feel all rustic.

Father’s Day is coming up and this fire starter kit is easy to make and very easy on the wallet. Gather a few twigs and shredded newspaper and bundle them with some twine.

Add a few match boxes - I covered mine with picnic patterned paper. Place your items in a box nestled in dried moss. You can include more items like, grilling spices and ingredients for s’mores.

Dad will have all the items handy to start the next fire pit, barbeque or camp fire.
