Fathers day gifts 2020
What do we get Dad??? Gahhhh we are all stuck indoors here in Melbourne, so will be relying on home made gifts, or orders on line! I’ve done a bit of ground work with some ideas on what to gift Dad this year. Find the list below of my top ideas!
Did dad grow up in the 80s?? Want to relive his childhood with him? Check out this retro gaming console here: Retro game console
It will be summer before we know it!! What better way to get outdoors by learning a new skill with Dad! Paddle boarding! Paddle boarding- Red balloon
Stuck for ideas of activities to do with the kids?? This one is a great one! Kills two birds with one stone, not only will it keep them occupied, it will also become a great gift to give Dad, writing down all their favorite things they love doing with dad, on lego, and putting it into a jar! So when covid is all over, Dad can dig his hand in that jar, pull a piece of lego out and read what activity they will head out and do that day!

Hand made airplane paper garland. Do the kids have a wish list on where they wish to travel with Dad when we are allowed out of lockdown? or have they a list on where you have travelled so far?

2020 for so many this year has no documentation, no connection with family, no memories made. We crave for that hug, that embrace and it has given us time to reflect on how important family really is. The memories we make is what we want to treasure, not the socks and undies we give every year. We want to look back on those times Dad was flinging you in the air, chasing you through the hedges, tickling you until the tears ran down your cheeks! These are the moments that trigger an emotion, a feeling… This is where I come in. let me document those moments for you so you have them to look back on in 20 years time.
Gift Dad, or even Mum for that fact a “Starter gift voucher” so they have something to look forward to when all this is over, something where we can all embrace, celebrate love, breath in the fresh air, and come together when this is all over:
Purchase your gift voucher 1 week before fathers day and I can post the voucher directly too you, left it super late? I can email you a copy you can give Dad for now 🙂
Added bonus, send me short videos of your children leaving a message for Dad on what they love most about him, their favorite moments they have with him and what they cannot wait to do with him when lockdown is all over and I can create a video for you to share with him of fathers day!
So there you have it. I hope my Fathers day gifts 2020 ideas made life a little easier for you by giving you some ideas on what to get Dad this year. Don’t forget there are links to every single item I have listed above making the process super easy for all you Mum’s out there. Stay safe and sending love to all!
