It was recently my Dad’s birthday, and as I was trying to come up with a gift I realized one thing we all love is to know what other people love about us. So I emailed all my siblings and asked that they send me 5-10 reasons they love dad. Then I printed them out, cut each reason into a strip, and wrapped it around a piece of “riesen” candy.
I then filled a canister with these delicious little treats wrapped in loving thoughts. I used my vinyl cutter to cut out a phrase that says: “So Many “Riesens” We Love You!”
I then attached a note that told him that any time he needed a pick me up, or just wanted to feel loved, he could reach in for a treat and see a reason one of us love him! A Riesen with a reason!
He loved this gift, and didn’t want to wait to read all the reasons.
It was such a fun gift I thought it would be perfect for Father’s Day, so I have included a FREE printable Shirt Front Father’s Day card that you can make with your kids to include with all of your reasons for loving dad!
The instructions are very simple:
- Download the Free Printable Found Here.
- Print on Cardstock or printer paper
- Cut on the solid lines, fold on the dotted.
- Decorate the extra include tie, or use it as a stencil on colored paper to make a fun tie! And glue on to the attached tie.
- Fold together so it looks like a dress shirt, with the message inside.
This fun card can be used with a bag of Reisen candy, or a canister like what I used for my Dad’s birthday gift. You don’t need a vinyl cutter, but feel free to decorate the canister too! It is such a fast, simple, and yet meaningful gift for dad, and a fun way to get the kids involved in a gift. I hope your dads love it as much as mine did!
