It’s OK. Not everyone is a “planner” by nature.
Thankfully, Dad knows you well enough to know your lack of organization around getting something in time for Father’s Day does not reflect how much you love him. (Oh, FYI – Father’s Day is this Sunday if you aren’t quite that far yet!)
There is still time to do something really cool for Dad this weekend. Here are some ideas you can do in no time at all.
Throw him a little party
Turn Dad’s favorite meal into something more festive by using a few decorations. Printable party hats, awesome food labels, and so much more can be found on Etsy. It could be just family, but it will feel his special day.
Get or print him a card
Online gift certificates
Many stores offer gift certificates that can be printed online or even emailed to Dad. Look where Dad shops…and if you aren’t sure, try a gift card from a big marketplace.You can decorate a cool box to put it in!
Get him what he’s been dreaming of
You know what a lot of Dads really want? Sometimes they just want to be able to find matching socks. Especially when a house is full of happy, crazy kids, Dad’s basics like socks and t-shirts tend to disappear under a pile of unfolded laundry. On my Dad’s 45th birthday, I remember my Mom giving my Dad 45 pairs of brand new socks in a laundry hamper that was just his. lol – In a family of four daughters, you can imagine he probably felt like he had nothing to himself ever and could NEVER find his stuff – He was thrilled! Even a new set of his favorite toiletries would show Dad you love and appreciate him…you don’t have to get fancy!

Company Name: Nikki, In Stitches
Meet Nikki: She is awesome!
Nikki, a one time teacher and now professional Mom to two kids and crafter has been able to turn her talent for DIY-ing just about anything into a thriving business. For years she would encourage friends to get crafty, saying “You could SO make that” when they would see trendy items in stores or catalogs. Today Nikki spends time teaching people how to make things with her fantastic tutorials and simple craft kits. We talked with Nikki recently to find out about her life, her crafty loves, and what keeps her going when the going gets tough.
Hi Nikki, So what is Nikki, in Stitches all about?
Nikki’s web video segment for Oprah’s OWN network “You Can SO Make That!”
I love the idea that people are sitting down with my kits, watching my videos or reading my tutorials, and literally making my projects along with me. I love helping them make something themselves, and hearing back from them afterward. Oftentimes I get an email or a comment on my blog, thanking me for my help and showing a picture of a finished project. I love that I’ve helped someone make something that they didn’t have the skills to make before.
