Since summer is chuck full of activities, vacations, and other busy-ness, I decided to get a headstart on Hubby’s gift for Father’s Day. Too many times have I had to rush at the last minute to create something awesome, but not this year! Now I’m completely read, and still have a few weeks – woot woot! And now you can easily put together the perfect thing with this Dad Our Hero: Father’s Day Gift Basket with Free Printables!
Even though our family’s BIG into superheroes and such, when I hear the word ‘HERO’ my first thoughts are Dads. My own dad is such an amazing example to me, has sacrificed so much for his family, and works harder than pretty much anyone I know with hardly a complaint. He’s also taught me so much about serving others, and has always been right there whenever someone needed it.
This particular basket is for the OTHER hero dad in my life – my Hubby! I can’t even begin to describe the countless things he’s done for me and for our kids. I have friends who I often hear complain that their husband is so frustrating because of this that or the other – and I can’t help but feel even more grateful because I’m so lucky! He works hard to support our family, is patient, playful and a total goof with our kids, takes care of more house work than I do, and supports my own activities (like this blog) 110%. He also puts up with my mood swings, bad temper, and depression issues like a champ – and entertains my silly personality!

I wanted to give Hubby some tools to help him out as he’s doing his projects or other work around the house. He’s always needing WD-40, a good drill, rags and the like. He also works so hard during the week, he ends up doing some work outside at night – even when it’s dark. He’s tried to do a makeshift head lamp thing, but it really ends up not working too well! I was so excited to get him a couple Energizer Headlights to help him!
They’ve got several options depending on the brightness you need, and the straps fit securely and comfortable on your head to keep your hands free. Now he can do yard work or doggy poop duty much easier! Plus you can save some money by using this COUPON!
