I find Father’s Day gifts to be one of the hardest gifts to buy. Unless your guy has a specific hobby that you can add to each year, it can be really hard to come up with what to get. Lucky for you, I’m here to help you with a few ideas this year!  

If you have young children, I find homemade gifts to be the best option. What Dad doesn’t love getting gift made just for them by their little ones. A few that we have done in the past year are:

Summertime always has me craving fresh, healthy foods. But sometimes I get a little sick of eating veggies and salads. Getting creative with healthy foods can sometimes feel a little complicated and daunting, but it doesnt have to be! Try keeping your snack choices simple, colourful, and fulfilling. Here are a couple of my favourite healthy go-to snacks: 

 

What better way to welcome the Summer than with a soirée?  Join us June 21st at Krause Berry Farm and Estate Winery for an evening filled with fun, food, wine, dancing live music and more!

The Summer Solstice Soirée en Blanc is a magical way to celebrate the longest day of the year and the beginning of Summer all while helping local families in need! All proceeds will go to provide support to local families over the Christmas holidays this year through Think Generously Society. Last year we supported 32 families through our unique fundraising events! Lets aim to beat this number this year!

The Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival is pleased to announce three ticket only headliner acts that will perform at the 2019 festival, July 26-28, 2019. Opening the festival on Friday night is an All-Star Blues show with the award-winning Steve Kozak Band inside the walls of the Fort Langley National Historic Site. An all-star blues jam will follow with Vancouver’s top blues musicians including Harpdog Brown, Wailin’ Al Walker, Murray Porter, James Buddy Rogers, Brandon Isaak, Dalannah Gail Bowen, Lisa Dunn, Joani Bye and more.

Back in the day when we had never heard about Hygge, my sister came home with the idea of making our own candles.  The process involved using an empty milk carton in which a wick was steadied as we poured melted paraffin with chunks of our favourite broken wax crayons.  For variety, you might put ice in the bottom first to create those awesome designs on the outside of the candle.  Once the wax was set, you cut away the milk carton and your candle was ready to be gifted to your mom as the perfect addition to her “groovy” 60s décor!

I bet the last thing you’re thinking of when making your Christmas shopping list is auto-themed items for gifts. Yet, this is one of the best categories to go with. There’s more than enough ideas, many people on your list have cars and the stocking-stuffer options alone are endless! Plus you have the opportunity to go with functional, fun or both.

It doesn’t matter if someone is a car-enthusiast or just a car user, even for that hard-to-buy-for person these ideas are sure to help you find a great, thoughtful gift that you may not have considered before.
