    Default Do you buy Dh Father's Day gift?

    If the kids buy / make something from school Father's Day stall or kinder, do you still buy a present from the kids?

    Yep as does he for Mother's Day, DS gets really excited to give presents he's helped picked! ( He found a iron man t shirt at Big W he wanted to buy for DH, he assumes everyone needs an iron man t shirt so he's busting to give it to him!)

    No we don't. It's all about the kids. Now that they're at school they choose something from the fathers/Mothers Day stall and generally make a card or something of the sort in class. I just help them hide the gifts until the day!

    Always. The kids make cards, dd1 picks a present from the Father's Day stall, both kids make something crafty and I cook his favourite meals and get him a new picture frame with a recent photo of the kids.

    2 small gifts under $5 combined. But he did get to move in to the big house and we spent a fortune making temporary solutions si we could move in before its ready. So he got a heap of heavy work to do. Haha

    Edit to say the kids made him stuff too.

    No. We bought him cufflinks one year but he didn't like them and ended up returning it. My dh is very difficult to buy gifts for. The kids do make or buy him something from school but that it really for the kids more so dh lol.

    Yes, always.

    Not here.
    He is just too hard to buy for, never wants anything and I don't want to buy junk just for the sake of it. DS1 bought him a mug and made him a card.
    I'll cook him a nice brekky, and dinner, and let him off housework for the day to free up his time. He's delighted with that.
