Does anyone have an easy father to shop for? I’m sure there has to be some out there, but I know my dad isn’t one of them. But I do know one thing my dad, and all dad’s, enjoy most – memories and sentimentality.
So, for this father’s day I’ve created a memory box, which is probably the easiest yet most meaningful gift you can give.
I picked up a photo box for $2.50. As great as plain kraft is I wanted to jazz it up a bit, so I added a design with acrylic paints. Add a bit of calligraphy to say “Dad” and the box itself was done.
- Books you read together
- Toys he gave you
- Souvenirs from places you’ve travelled
- Menu from your favourite childhood restaurant
- And of course, photos
The great thing about giving a memory box is reliving them together through each item you carefully selected.
What would go in your memory box?
