What do you do on Father’s Day when your father lives in a different state? In the past, I have sent him coupons and gift certificates in the mail to be used when we were together or we have celebrated a few weeks early or late at a family gathering. But this year, inspired by the card section at Target, I decided to send him a package in the mail with a bunch of little treats.
Mazen and I had so much fun picking out cards together. Of course, he wanted all of the superhero ones or cards with crazy googley eyes and I was on the hunt for the perfect message inside!
We finally picked out a variety of cards for all the dads/granddads/father figures in our lives. We found a little something for everyone, from silly to sentimental to Star Wars themed.
I love the message behind their latest campaign — “A card is just a card. But in the right moment, it means everything.” So true with a surprise care package of treats he will love!
To go with our card, we hit up several stores to collect items that were special and that we thought he would enjoy.
Our package included:
-New gardening gloves and seeds for his garden
-Virginia peanuts (he is nuts for nuts!)
-A nighttime reading light
-UVA-colored jelly beans (to pick at the Duke fan in him)
-A pound of Virginia coffee
-SARDINES (he loves them)
-Locally made chocolate toffee
-And a picture of the parts of a flower that Mazen made in school.
And of course, we both wrote in the card and placed it on top! Spiderman theme won out ; )
I have warned my dad not to read this blog post so as not to spoil the surprise!
And a head’s up – Target’s Cartwheel app has a 10% off offer on Father’s Day cards if you’re heading to buy some!
My dad says thanks to American Greetings for sponsoring this post : )
