Father's Day Gifts

For Father;s Day, we decided to  make  our own gifts for my husband instead of buying.  The Burritos did some paintings for their Dad and we prepared some other stuff as well.  We did not spend much for our gifts since we used what he  have at home like photos, empty jars, and other  materials.  The only thing that we bought was the frames for their paintings.  
Since the theme of our gifts is recycling, we used an empty cardboard box  to put our gifts in.  Ms. Burrito  covered it with the  colorful  papers that we used  when my husband celebrated his birthday.
"It's the thought that counts" is still being practiced at home.  We want to kids to learn how to appreciate  small and simple gifts as long as you put  effort and love in preparing it.
So these are what we have for him.  We used empty candle jars, put some colorful sand at the bottom and  put a photo inside.
The kids card is also "handmade" literally, lol.
They  wrapped their gifts personally and wrote  their messages on it.
Even my son did really well in wrapping his painting.
I gave my husband the notepad holder that he likes.
Our Father's Day celebration was very simple but very meaningful as we are all together.  How about yours, how was Father's Day at your end?


  1. handmade crafts is always the BEST gift to give out no matter what. We make they wholeheartedly and it's a unique gift too.

  2. Very thoughtful gifts and handmade cards! I love it! I "kidnapped" my husband fr work and brought him to an island not so faraway. He works on most weekends and I don't want to deprive him from spending time with the kids on Father's Day. Mission accomplished, the kids had great bonding moments with their dad. :)

  3. These gifts are precious! Its actually the simple, but meaningful celebrations that count more.

  4. Sis, you have very talented kids. I bet it made their Daddy more loved on Father's Day.

  5. sis, lakio ng box but maliit ang laman. Nevertheless, the thought counts. so sweet talaga ng kids mo.

  6. what a sweet Father's day treat!

  7. So sweet of the kids to prepare something they have personally made for their Dad! For sure, that melted your hubby's heart.

  8. The simple things in life are usually the best. Your kids are learning a very important lesson! I am sure their Dad appreciated every single one of his gifts as if they had been made in 18K gold!


It's always a pleasure to read what you have to say! Thank you!
