Are you looking for a special Father’s Day Gift– one that will bring a smile to your dad’s face for years to come?

If you are blessed with artistic talents, use them to create a gift for your dad. Write Dad a song, poem, or story.  Draw, paint, or sculpt him a piece of art.  Whether it’s about him or for him, you can show your appreciation for your dad and do something you love at the same time.

For at least 45 years, a unique pencil holder adorns my husband’s desk. One of our sons made it when in elementary school, and it is indeed unique. It was made by gluing painted white Popsicle sticks to a soup can.  Then adding an extra special touch is the pink and purple fringe wrapped around it.  When we see it, we still smile after all these years. It has been a Father’s Day gift that has continued to be functional and highly valued for over four decades.

Now that’s a long-lasting gift!
