Father’s Day is just around the corner, friends! I don’t know about you, but I am a daddy’s girl through and through. Not only do I look like my dad, but he is also my best friend. Although one day of the year is not nearly enough to celebrate my dad, I do like using this holiday to show him some love.
My parents do not really like getting gifts, I honestly think they would prefer to never get gifts and just give to others, but I insist on getting them something. In the past couple of years I have really honed in on how to buy gifts for my mom and dad and people who “don’t like getting gifts.” The trick is to watch what they buy for themselves and then get them that, with a slight elevation. For example, my dad loves golfing and golfers go through a lot of golf balls. So I bought him a set of Pro V1 golf balls and had them customized to say “Lar Bear” on the balls. This little addition does not cost much more than the golf balls would if you bought them in the store, but the sentiment goes a long way.
All of that being said, I’ve come up with a list of gifts that I think my dad and many more will love for Father’s Day this year, but I know for sure that my dad will most enjoy the card I write him. So don’t forget to add a beautiful note to your dad to remind them how much you love them!I hope you enjoy this gift guide and that you have a wonderful Father’s Day!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner! May 10th to be exact. Not only is it one of my favorite days to celebrate because of the amazing mother and grandmother I have, but it is also a great reminder of love and positivity during these difficult times.
Anna Reeves Jarvis is widely credited with founding Mother’s Day in the United States. Upon her mother’s death in May of 1905, Jarvis wanted to create a day to honor mothers and thus the celebration began. Jarvis deemed the white carnation to be the official flower of Mother’s Day.
“Its whiteness is to symbolize the truth, purity and broad-charity of mother love; its fragrance, her memory, and her prayers,” Jarvis said in a quote featured in the book, Memorializing Motherhood: Anna Jarvis and the Struggle for Control of Mother’s Day. “The carnation does not drop its petals, but hugs them to its heart as it dies, and so, too, mothers hug their children to their hearts, their mother love never dying.”
Whether it be for your partner, wife, mother, mother-in-law or grandma, I have compiled a list of gifts that will help you honor the women in your life.
A gift is never complete without a handwritten note. Make sure to include a special message to your mom reminding her how much you love her on this special day!
