Happy Father's Day

What are you doing for Father’s Day? Dining out is a great way to show your dad you care about him. Though, it certainly shouldn’t stop there. Have you considered something outdoors or maybe a project?

Here’s a couple for Father’s Day or any day.

Tool Box | Gardening, Grilling, or General Maintenance - A pre-cut kit that you and your dad can build together. This nifty wooden tray-style toolbox is perfect for carrying your tools for just everyday work around the house or heading out to the garden with seeds, trowel, or pruners. As you can see in the photo, one idea is to include dividers; not part of the original design, but it can be modified to your needs.

Speaking of grilling, if you’re looking for some ideas, check out these links:

  • Grilling Tools: Some essentials for grilling. Check the list to see if there’s anything your dad needs.
  • Grill Kit: Outdoor Gourmet Deluxe Aluminum Barbecue Tool Set. Cuisinart has their version of the barbecue tool set here, here, and here.
  • Williams-Sonoma has a whole host of grilling accessories.
  • And there’s always Weber.

Butterfly House: Is your dad a naturalist? Why not set aside some space for butterflies? This butterfly house kit/plan gives you everything you need for a butterfly dwelling. This house and a few well placed plants will add beauty to any backyard. To attract butterflies you’ll also need to plant some essential plants that attract butterflies. Here are some resources to help you create your very own butterfly garden. More resources here and here.

Or, if you want to plan something outdoors, take advantage of the beauty of your area, here’s a great resource and an excellent gift. It’s a map that is designed specifically for planning hikes, camping trips, fishing, etc. Here’s the Pennsylvania version. If you live elsewhere, you might find your state with this link.

Whatever you end up doing for Father’s Day, we wish you well and many more Father’s Days to come!
