FREE FATHER’S DAY TAG- “EAT, DRINK, AND BE HAIRY”
PDF Tags and SVG file versions!
It’s time again to dedicate a whole day to all the awesome dads in our lives! Dads can be tricky to shop for, but then again, so can moms. I heard something a while ago that has made me approach Father’s Day and Mother’s Day a bit differently than I have in the past. “These days are about the children, not Mom and Dad.” When you think about it, that really makes a lot more sense than a mom or dad wondering what service or gift they will receive. (That’s what birthdays are for, right?) These days are not about us, they are all about the children finding special ways to show us how much they love their mom and dad. It is a chance for kids to showcase those adorable handprints in one-of-a-kind art and present you with something they thought you might love because they really, really care about you! So here is a gift idea that keeps the kids in mind as much as the dad…
This printable “Eat, Drink, and be Hairy” Father’s Day tag obviously comes with a vague direction to head in with gifts. But, it is great because there are so many items you can include in the gift bundle that will personalize it and make sure that Dad and the kids have a great time together (fake mustaches are a must). So, if you are looking to skip the new tie and “#1 Dad” mug this year, well this post just might be for you! I did these bundles a few years ago and included IBC Root Beer, some beef jerky, a pack of fake mustaches, and a couple of personalized knick-knacks. It was pretty simple and affordable enough to put some together for the grandpas too. The kids had a great time playing around with the mustaches and drinking some soda with the men they look up to most in life.
If you think this is something a dad (and a grandpa or two) in your life might love, read on for a variety of ideas of what else you might include. You will find the link to the free PDF download at the bottom of the page. An SVG version is also available down there to use with your Silhouette or Cricut.
Everyone likes to eat, so go wild with this. An easy go to snack for a man’s gift basket is beef jerky. You can add a Slim Jim, his favorite candy bar, maybe a Big Hunk. Just pick whatever sort of food or treat the Dad in your life prefers. My kids usually choose a package of Oreos for their dad, because they know he will share!

This part of the gift can be pretty versatile too. You can go with an actual drink for Dad; Mountain Dew, a protein drink, Gatorade, his favorite beer, whatever he is partial to. Or if you are looking for a Father’s Day gift that Dad can actually share with the little ones you can include something like a six pack of IBC Root Beer and they will all love it!
(Note: Beverages will be a lot cheaper in your local grocery store than online.)
Here are a few ideas of items to stick in your bundle for the “be hairy” part of things. Mustache/beard comb, a beard shaper, fake mustache sets (these are really for the kids), or my husband’s favorite beard softener ever…Cremo. It seriously makes his beard the softest, it’s worth every penny!
Don’t have a hairy man? Consider signing him up for a program like The Dollar Shave Club (you can print off a gift certificate), or including replacement heads for whatever razor he currently uses along with some shaving cream and/or aftershave.
