If you don’t know by now, Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 17. As always, I’m always behind in giving you freebies. Other bloggers, get their posts up and running a month before a special occasions. I’m the person that waits til the last minute to do things. But, I’m sure I’m not the only one that leaves things for the last minute.
Here are some easy Father’s day printables for dads. Some are easy crafts for the kids to do for dad, others are cards.
What dad would not want a tie filled with candy? Wear and eat candy all day long at work.
2. Father’s Day Printable Book
Love books where the kids fill out what they think about dad. You’ll really get a kids perspective about how old he thinks daddy is. It’s so funny to have daddy read and then to have the kids read when they’re older. I’m sure there would be lots of giggling.
3. Father’s Day Candy Tags
No time? No worries. Get dad some of his favorite candies and wrap these gift tags around them with a nice little card and you’re done.
4. Father’s Day Geometric Card
Got a cool dady? Give him this modern geometic Father’s Day card.
My gal friend just had a baby girl. She’s so tiny and sweet. I want to give something for the baby that is small and doesn’t take up space. We all know how many things newborn gets these days. Clothes are just overly given.
Through my research on Pinterest, I found that hair bow and headband are the answers to my gift dilemma. What is also great about hair bows or headbands? They make great a photo prop. They go great with a white shirt or a naked baby. So below, I researched for you and for myself (gift ideas for the little ladies in my life), the cutest and sweetest hair bows for girls for every day, special photos, or a party.

What’s so great about these gifts is that you can get them at your local Target, beauty store like Sephora, restaurants, or even Amazon. The trick is to package it beautifully.

Give mom a gift certificate to her favorite nail salon. If you don’t know what her favorite salon is, just give her a Visa’s gift card that she can use anywhere. Or if she likes doing her own nail, then put together a nice personal at home nail salon.
2. Give her a box of her favorite treats

Give her the whole box of cookies and tell her you’ll take the kids out for two hours so she can eat the whole box by herself…in peace.
3. Spa day
Give her a gift certificate to the spa so she can be relaxed and happy to see you and the kids again. If you can’t afford a spa treatment then put together a spa kit that includes a face mask so she can wear it while binge watching her favorite show and eating her favorite box of cookies.
4. Order her favorite meal

Give her a meal to enjoy while binge watching her favorite show, wearing the face mask and eating cookies. And if you’re ultra nice you’ll order meals for the whole family for the week.
5. Set up a bath for her
Buy that bath tray and put all the essentials, including the wine glass and bottle. Give her the whole day to just lie there to watch her favorite shows or read her favorite book.
6. Give her a gift card
If you’re not sure which of the above you want to do for her just give her a Visa’s gift card. Mom will take care of her gift herself and she will not have to return your present. You can find gift cards almost everywhere these days. I personally know that Walgreens and Rite Aid have them. The gift cards range from restaurants to movies.
7. Give her a “One Line A Day” journal
This type of journal is all the rage right now. Give it to her and let her jot down her memories. Her one line for Mother’s day might just be : “Receiving the One Line a Day journal and leaving me to write down my thoughts in a quiet space is the best gift I received on this Mother’s day.”
8. Drop her off at her BFF’s

If you think mom will be bored if you leave her alone, then drop her off at her bff’s so they can be “bored” together.
9. Give mom a theater treatment
Be it a Broadway show or a movie. Just leave her somewhere alone so she can watch a movie or fall asleep at the movie theater.
10. Don’t wake her up

If you truly love mom, don’t even bother waking her up to wish her a happy Mother’s Day. Just let her sleep past 7 AM. And let her wake up to a ready-made breakfast, a clean house, and no screaming children.Bring the kids back right before their bedtime.
There you have it. Ten gifts that any mom would love. Give her one or all ten gifts. The most important part of all these gifts is that you leave her alone to enjoy them! Believe me, she will love you for it.

Spring showers, bring May flowers or lots of party invitations. Since my son’s started school, he’s been getting lots of party invitations for his classmates’ birthdays. You know those cute little invitations with the handwritten information on them. There’s just something so personal about them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the electronic invites as well for the their own benefits. I’m planning a post on some of my favorite online invitation sites in a future post.But for now, here are some simple blank invitations I created for you. You can fill these out by hand or type the information on them using an editing website, like PicMonkey.
Printing out your invitations
There are two invitations on one 8.5×11 paper. The invitation is 5×7 inches, but you can resize it smaller by adjusting your printer setting. To achieve the best quality invitation, print out on cardstock and choose “Best Photo” if you have that option on your printer. Cut on the trim marks. Write your information. Send out.
These invitations are great for Sunday brunch, birthday party, spring and summer parties.
