Creative Ideas Needed!!

I'm always stuck for good ideas when it comes to Father's Day. Every year it seems like Joshua already has everything he wants or needs. And if he doesn't already have it, it's something too expensive for me to buy! Last year, I took Sara and Sky to get special portraits made and then we framed them and gave that to Joshua for his gift. (I got that idea from my good friend, Trina.) So, I can't exactly do that again.... Of course, we always make a craft or cards to give Daddy, and he loves those. But, with "giving and receiving gifts" being my love language, I always want to do something more than that. This year, I'm asking for help! What are some things you have done in the past to honour the Daddy in your home? I tend to focus on a gift, but maybe some of you with other love languages, can give me some creative ideas! I'll be waiting to hear from you!

My plan, and I don't know if it will happen or not, is to take pictures of the kiddos wearing some of Daddy's clothing - work, around the house and church clothes.

I also want to grab his phone when he isn't in posession of it and snap a picture of the 3 and save it as his wallpaper - we'll see if I can pull either off. We're leaving for the beach Sat, so there are more pressing things...we'll see!

Don't know that I have any ideas to help, can only share what we've done in a couple short years. My husband loves to read, so throughout the year as he says oh, I'd really love to read.... I keep it in the back of my mind. This year I got him a picture(on the expensive side) titled "the forgiven." It is a picture of Christ upholding a man who appears he can't stand on his own. He has wanted that for awhile, but the timing or money hasn't always been right.
I am a very practical person when it comes to gifts so I'd rather ask before hand, (maybe weeks or a couple of months)hey is this something you'd be interested in.
Does he wear "Christian" shirts? You could always get or make one yourself. Mine gets the day to do whatever he wants so the guys are going for a motorcycle ride. Oh, since his fav. foods aren't always my favs I'll probably try to cook him something he'll like.
Good luck, -Gail
