Father's Day will be here soon. There are so many fun ways you can surprise dad. I want you to think about not just WHAT gift you will get dad, but HOW you will package it.
I have some fun gift ideas for dad, along with unique ways to package them using Disguise The Surprise dividers. The whole family can get involved and have some fun.
Ok, ties and socks are a common item to give dad. The box below shows you a fun way to arrange them inside a shirt box. This creates a much nicer presentation rather than throwing them in a bag. Fill the sections with other small items, or leave as is. This box used clear dividers (2 length & 4 width).
Disguise That One Special Gift! Does the dad in your life like to play jokes on your family? Get back at him and disguise his gift! It literally takes under 1 minute to put together a box to disguise that one special item. Disguise the tech item he wants...cell phone, earbuds, etc. A great gift for a dad who needs to start watching his heart rate is a Kardio Mobile device (below right image). All of these boxes used 4 dividers (2 length & 2 width). The whole family will have fun watching dad open a gift they disguised. Priceless reaction when he lifts the lid and sees something way cool!
Does Dad Play Golf? How about making him a golf themed gift box. You can literally duplicate this exact box on your own. Any golf shirt that is made of a dry fit material can fold up small to fit into the space allotted in this box. Dick's Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy and Amazon are great stores to purchase any of these items. Find a local golf store near you to support as well. I purchased this set of golf markers on Amazon and the neon colored balls. Golf Galaxy sells the colored tees and my local store sold individual neon colored balls for the top section. This box used clear dividers (2 length & 3 width).
Have the kids make a card or fun picture for dad. Put it in one of the smaller sections or lay it flat on top of the tissue paper if it's larger so it's the first thing that dad sees. So many fun options!
Does Dad Have A Favorite Sports Team? He would love a themed gift box like these. All of these items were purchased from my Rally House store here in St. Louis, but they sell everything online as well. They sell items from teams all over the country. The Blues box used blue dividers (2 length, 3 width & 1 buffer strip as a shorter divider below the shirt). The Cardinals box used white dividers (4 length & 4 width). Throw in some tickets to the game to top it off!
Give Dad A Gift Of An Experience! If the dad in your life has everything he needs, how about an experience. Use the dividers to create a well laid out presentation explaining what type of experience he will get. This box is for a Kentucky Bourbon Trail weekend. The tour company Pegasus sent me a certificate of purchase that I placed in the box along with their business card. I went online and printed an image of the distilleries in the region and laid that under the certificate. I went to my local store to find the small bottles of different types of bourbon. My local grocery stores did not sell bourbon in the small sizes, so I went to our nicer The Wine & Cheese Place in St. Louis who had a good selection. Place tissue paper under the bottles so they don't move around. This box used clear dividers (2 length & 5 width).
Dad Likes To Fish! How about a box filled with fishing items. He would be so excited to open a box like this one below filled with bait. These items were purchased from Dick's Sporting Goods. I like this brand called Z-Man because unlike most other soft plastic baits, ElaZtech contains no PVC, plastisol or phthalates, and is non-toxic. This box used blue dividers (2 length, 3 width, 3 risers & 1 buffer strip as a shorter divider).
We could get dad a gift card, but that's not what he wants. He wants something more personal. Imagine his face when he opens a gift box curated by his kids (and mom : ). So personal and thoughtful. The Disguise The Surprise dividers allow customization for any layout. What a fun project for moms and kids to do together. Kids can make a special note for dad - color - draw - tell him "I Love You" in writing and place it in one of the sections or lay flat on top. Put a photo of dad with the kids in there too. Endless possibilities!
I hope you got some good ideas and are ready to create some gift-giving excitement. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
