Fathers Day: make or buy?

It's the age old debate.  Do you help your kids make something lovely for dad, or do you buy him something?

I know my preference for Mothers Day, it's homemade all the way; but Mike is less impressed by Rachel's artistic creations.

So this year we've gone for a mix and match, best of both worlds approach.  Rachel has made a card, a picture, a star and a heart for him.

As you can see he liked them and Rachel was very proud of her creations.

We've also bought him a "daddy cool" pint glass and a pair of "top daddy" socks.  We're also taking him out to lunch.  So for us it's make AND buy.

How about you?

Aaah I think that they are awesome hearts and stars. Perfect! I very much like the "made approach" versus bought... but i guess "Buying" always creeps in at some stage!

Thank you for linking to Kids Get Crafty. Always lovely to see you there!
