Father’s Day Traditions

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to buying gifts for the hubs, I draw a huge blank!

Because unless it’s super expensive (like a new iPad, Taylor guitar, or scuba diving trip), than my man is content – he doesn’t ask for much.

Well, I am here to tell you that getting the Happy Hubby something for Father’s Day doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time/effort.

Having a tradition to get excited about year after year is sure to give the daddy of your Happy Buddies just what he needs to feel loved and appreciated this Father’s Day.

This tradition is perfect if your hubs has a sweet tooth for ice cream.

Host an Annual Ice Cream Tasting Contest!

Buy a variety of pint-sized ice cream cartons.  Cover up the outside labels with scrapbook paper.

Then have everyone taste the different ice creams and write down what flavor they think each is.

The person with the most correct guesses gets a special trophy until the next year’s Ice Cream Tasting Contest.

Speaking of trophies…

How hilarious is this one?!

Or So She Says holds a different kind of competition with her Happy Home each Father’s Day.

Her Happy Buddies compete against their dad in a series of activities (like hula hooping, Jenga-building, trampoline tricks, etc.) to see who (the kids or dad) will get to keep that funny trophy for the year.

Check out more of her activity suggestions HERE.

  1. Thank you for the great ideas. This kind of creativity is not my natural thing and our Happy Daddy is like yours; if it’s not an expensive electrical gadget, he doesn’t really care.
    Love the ties, but I think it will be the crown that we make for him and grandpa to wear at the restaurant this Sunday!! :-D
