DIY Handprint Oven Mitt- The Perfect Gift!

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure my kids won the grandparent lottery. They are so blessed to have such amazing grandparents who spoil them rotten! People often talk about how strong a mother or father’s love is, and I am pretty sure a grandparent’s love could be counted right up there too. Did you know that there is a special day set apart to honor grandparents? September 10th is Grandparents Day and I think it is definitely a day worth celebrating! And a cute and useful Handprint Oven Mitt is the perfect gift!

Just a suggestion…you could also tuck this gift idea away for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It is such a sweet idea and it is USEFUL! I like giving gifts that are practical as well as fun so that they don’t just end up gathering dust on a shelf somewhere. And since pretty much everybody has to eat, and cook at least a little, then a Handprint Oven Mitt is a gift that will be used often and bring a smile while being used.

DIY Handprint Oven Mitt, the perfect sentimental gift idea!To make this gift I found a nice matching set of kitchen towels and oven mitts at Bed Bath & Beyond and bought some fabric paint at Joanns. It was then as easy as dipping my kids’ hands into the paint and pressing them onto the oven mitt! And if you’ve ever wrestled with a two year old with his hands covered in paint, then you know how easy it is.  :)

DIY Handprint Oven Mitt, the perfect sentimental gift idea!I’ve even included a gift tag with a sweet poem to make your gift giving even easier! This poem is perfect for grandparents, mothers, and fathers. If you wanted to create your own gift tag you could easily adapt this gift idea for teachers too! Perhaps just change the wording up a bit and it is ready for teachers.

DIY Gift Basket for Father’s Day

Sometimes it can be hard to shop for the men in our lives. But no matter their hobbies or interests, every man (hopefully!) uses some sort of deodorant/soap/body wash. And these men work hard! They deserve a little pampering too! That is why a {manly} spa gift basket is the perfect Father’s Day gift. And this DIY Gift Basket is super easy to put together! And it looks great!

DIY Gift Basket for Father's Day

The key to keeping this spa gift basket from becoming too girly is to think about the colors you’re using. I kept things manly by using a metal basket and choosing items in blues, browns, greys, and blacks. And I filled in the gaps between each product with some brown paper shred that almost has a sawdust feel to it. Since sawdust is basically man glitter, it all works.  :)

DIY Gift Basket for Father's DayPlus these items don’t just look good, they are practical too! Each one is something that would actually be used, and not just a waste of money. Deal Alert: I found that awesome toiletry bag at the dollar spot in Target. Such a good find! Here are some ideas of what you can include in your DIY Gift Basket:

  • Shaving Cream
  • After Shave
  • Razors
  • Body Wash/Soap
  • Lotion
  • deodorant
  • Cologne
  • Combs
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Hair Gel/Pomemade
  • Gum/Breath Mints
  • Chapstick
  • Toiletry Bag
  • Slippers/Socks
  • And anything else you might think your man would enjoy!

Of course having a printable tag helps everything out too. I’ve got you covered with a fun tag letting your man know that he is free to “Relax, treat yo’ self.”

World’s Greatest POP Father’s Day Gift Idea

Over the weekend I was doing my grocery shopping and wandering down the aisles waiting for some Father’s Day inspiration to spark and give me a little gift idea.  I stumbled across Pop Em’s donuts and thought hey, I bet I could make a cute tag using the word Pop, so I put them in my cart and kept on shopping.  And with each aisle I kept finding more and more items with the word pop and the gift idea grew!  I picked up a few of them to put together a World’s Greatest Pop gift basket and share it all with you in case you are looking for a fun present for Father’s Day.
