Mike, I’m about to reveal all about what’s going to happen for you on Father’s Day this year, so if you wouldn’t mind not reading, that would be great!

I find men pretty hard to buy for at the best of times but June is a killer month for me what with Mike’s Birthday, swiftly followed by Father’s Day! Thankfully at this stage I think Father’s Day can be limited to acts of kindness and amusing little home made gifts (which is not the same as Mother’s Day of course!).

With Father’s Day a little over a week away, on 15th June, I’ve pulled together my favourite ideas (all gleaned from Pinterest and stored in my Father’s Day pinterest board) and basically what I plan to do on and for the 15th.

Father’s Day – 4 thrifty gift ideas

Father's Day - 4 thrifty gift ideas! http://www.mumsdays.com/fathers-day-some-gift-ideas/ #FathersDay #gift #thrift #DIY

  1. Room Service – unless it’s juice that he wants, Reuben’s not going to be much use for this task but Gabriella will LOVE it; reading the card, helping me make breakfast and then all munching in bed! *Oh crumbs* You can get a free download room service door hanger, courtesy of 733blog.com, by clicking here!
  2. Daddy questionnaire – another thing I think Gabby will enjoy doing is filling out this questionnaire (a free printable from Kinzie’s Kreations). You could equally do it for your little one if they’re too young to write/talk!
  3. Breakfast-in-bed Father’s Day topper – To accompany the Room Service, we can make one of these toppers from Ruby Ju!  Gabby can write it and Reuben colour it in. Although the only cocktail sticks I have are cocktail umbrellas – well, it might be raining…
  4. His favourite dinner – with it being a Sunday I can imagine Mike will want sunday dinner, but he also loves fresh fish dishes, so I’m thinking some of my amazing marinaded fish with extra chillies in a taco or wrap and a nice cold beer would go down very well! With Gabriella (not the beer) and me too…

So there you are, keeping it thrifty and simple. I have one other idea up my sleeve and I will share next week with Reuben’s help! It might even be a Vlog…

What are your ideas for Father’s Day?
