If your father is anything like mine, he is difficult buy gifts for. Usually Christmas, Father's Day, and his birthday involves chipping in with my mom or brother for a gift certificate or something I don't understand from Cabella's. This birthday was no different with my brother picking up the gift certificate, but still I wanted to something extra special. And since my brother never signs my name to the card even though I paid half, I always need to make sure the parents know who the most awesome child is!
I first saw this idea here and here, but Key Foods has a poor selection of candy and it was raining, I was not going out in search of candy. I worked with what I could find! I sent this for my dad's birthday, but I think it would be excellent for Father's Day. My dad really enjoyed the gift! It's hard to see, but this is what the card said:
Dear Dad, Happy whooper of a birthday! Fifty-six is starting to sound old, but there are no snickers here! Even though I can be quite the goober and often have butterfingers, I am never a milk dud. You have always been such a smartie and a lifesaver! Enjoy crunch-ing on all this candy, I hope you don't get chunky. You should come to New York and see the team Baby Ruth played for! I love you good and plenty. Tracy
If your dad has a sweet tooth, here are some other suggestions!
