Must Have Father's Day Gifts

Good evening nannies!

Are you on the hunt for some fun Father's Day gifts your kiddos can make for their dear old dad? Do you also feel like gifting for men is unbelievably difficult? You are not alone! Thankfully as an agency, Chicago Collegiate Nannies wants to help you feel prepared and excited to celebrate those father figures in your kid's lives! Check out some of the fun ideas we have below and give one (or more) of them a try!

1. Make a gift voucher set - This type of gift is great because you can personalize and make it unique to the receiver. Allow the kids to come up with what type of gift vouchers/coupons they want to gift their dad and help them create a fun booklet with everything in it! They can have their dad cash them in as they go and this also teaches kids the value of serving others. Check out the link below for a sample template to help you get started: http://images.meredith.com/parents/images/2016/05/FF_FathersDayCoupons_Template.pdf

2. Create a unique desk organizer gift - What's great about this gift is that no matter how much dad has to work he can always have a special memory of his little ones while he catches up on work at home. You only need a few simple supplies to create this gift and it can also be an activity that the kids can do to pass some time. Be sure to try this tip out before Father's Day! http://www.parents.com/holiday/fathers-day/crafts/desk-organizer-for-dad/?slideId=36700

3. Make an alphabet photo frame - This gift is wonderful for littler kids to craft up for dad! All you need are some magnetic letters and a few other materials and you can create a photo frame that is memorable and simple. Letting dads feel appreciated and love is what Father's Day is all about! The link below can give you further instructions for what else you need to make this great gift! http://www.parenting.com/gallery/7-easy-to-make-gifts-for-fathers-day?page=4

4. Gift a "Dad Libs" card - For those that know the popular game "Mad Libs," this gift is right up your alley! Have the kiddos' dad fill in the blanks and read them together for a more interactive Father's Day card. Check out the template below to make this gift. http://www.marthastewart.com/274629/fathers-day-crafts-for-kids

5. Make a Father's Day Handprint plaque - Got multiple kids that need to make a gift for dad? Have each child either use their handprint or cut out their hand to create a sweet gift letting dad know how much his kids love them! Though there isn't a tutorial on how to make this, you can get the idea based on the picture at the link below, so have fun getting creative! http://imgfave.com/view/1474143
