I need some ideas for a Fathers Day gift for dh. Ds was a sort of miracle baby, born against all the odds, so he is really looking forward to his first Fathers Day. I wanna get him something special to commermorate it, but have no idea what to get. Please help

hermykne Sun 29-May-05 20:17:42 do funky t-shirts which are fun
(some people dont like them)

Could you go to an art cafe and make a mug or plate with your ds's footprints on? I did then for ds1's 1st Fathers Day and dh still treasures it.

ah yeah, we have one of those shops near to us, thats a lovely idea. is it hard to get a good print though?

No it's quite easy! Well, ds was only a few months when I did it but it came out really nicely.

Henda Sun 29-May-05 20:30:31
