Sometimes, you just need a cooler that is grizzly bear-proof and can keep ice for days. But sometimes you don’t. (I, for example, will not be going anywhere where grizzlies pose a threat to my cooler. Neither will I be leaving the vicinity of a refrigerator for more than 48 hours at a time. Just not my thing right now, ya know?)
Either way, a cooler-in their hundreds of varieties, colors, and capacities-can be a great gift for the manly-Father-man in your life. Because who wants warm drinks on a hot day? Not this girl. Just saying that the manly-Father-man in your life might feel the same way.
But my favorite part of this gift is what you get to write on the back of the manly-cute printable (that you can find and download here).
This is where you and the kiddos or you and your siblings get to write a list of the things that you love about and are grateful for in this manly-Father-man. Because-with or without cold drinks on hot days-the stuff you write about is the stuff that life is made of. The things we remember in December when we don’t need coolers but we still need to know that the people we love-love us back.
Some helpful tips: this bow is massive because a cooler is massive. And who wants to wrap a cooler? I found this monstrous bow at a dollar store-it’s actually 9 bows stickied (not a word, but you know what I mean) together. Three bucks total and no wrapping-stress. We also mounted the printable onto a piece of red paper to give it some extra pop. When you go to download it, it’s already sized to be a 5×7, so you can just do our little trick and have it printed in an hour at Wal-Mart for less than a dollar. And you don’t even have to cut it out.
So there you have it. Happy Father’s Day to you and yours! If you’re looking for some Father’s Day fun beyond the meat-fest you have planned, be sure to check out our favorite Father’s Day game/tradition/dessert!!
