Father’s Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate your husband as a father.
In the everyday busyness of parenting, we quite often take each other for granted and don’t appreciate what our husbands do enough.
Do you sometimes pause to admire what a great dad your husband is for your kids?
How your son looks up to your husband and seeks his approval? And how that single “you can do it” coming from his dad’s mouth gives him the strength to push harder.
Or how your daughter rushes to her daddy to get that sweet cuddle as soon as he’s back home from work?
Motherhood is hard, there’s no doubt about that. As wives and moms we sacrifice so much and work so hard to have our family’s needs met. Day in and day out!
But have you ever thought what it would’ve been like without your husband by your side?
And while one day a year is certainly not enough to show our love and appreciation for the father figure in our children’s lives, celebrating Father’s Day with a thoughtful gift from your kid to their father will certainly lighten up both your husband’s and kid’s day. And what’s the most important it’ll create memories they’ll cherish for years to come.
Here’s my Father’s Day gift guide for you with 15 thoughtful gift ideas.
Personalized Gifts Dads of Small Kids Will Appreciate (And Maybe Shed a Tear or Two)
Personalized books are a perfect gift if you have small kids. Your child will love to be read to by his dad a book about fatherhood and dad’s love toward him. There are a number of great options to choose from. Here are my top picks. You do need to order soon (ideally, before June 5). Because it takes time to personalize the book and delivery takes longer these days due to COVID-19.
1. “My Dad” Personalized Book from LucyGifts
A cute picture book with personalized child and dad names. You also get to personalize where dad lives, one hobby that daddy and child do, and dad’s year of birth. All the pages are on the display which makes it easy to look through all the pictures and text before ordering.
2. Daddy and Me Board Book from Pinhole Press
To create this custom board book you need to upload your favorite pictures and add text in large, easy-to-read type. Preserve your favorite Daddy and Me moments for your husband and your child. They’ll both love looking through their treasured pictures together.
If your child is older and can write, check out also their “All About My Dad” Photo Book with write-in areas for your child to complete.
There are lots of other things at Pinhole Press that can be customized and serve as a great Father’s Day gift – photo puzzles, calendars, framed photo collages, etc.
3. Super Dad! Personalized Storybook
Is there a dad that doesn’t love to read about super heroes? How about making him one? With this personalized storybook you can add your husband’s face and name to make him the superhero star of the story. It’ll be interesting to watch who’ll be more thrilled your child or your husband 😀
4. I Love You This Much Personalized Book from Wonderbly
Another beautifully illustrated book you can personalize with your husband’s and child’s information. It’s recommended for ages 0-3 but I think it would work perfectly fine for up to 6 years of age. While on Wonderbly’s website you can check out their kids’ books that can be also personalized with your child’s name.
5. You’ll Always Be My Little Boy/Girl Personalized Book from Hooray Heroes
Another cute book to personalize. In this book, Dad imagines the everyday moments that become memories of bonding with his child. Beautiful illustrations and heartfelt text that your dear ones will love reading through.
