Caroline is 7 months and Joe is an awesome father. he works 12 hour rotating shifts so I can stay home with Caroline. I want to get Joe a gift for christmas from Caroline and I want it to be meaningful. But He's sooo hard to shop for. Any suggestions!??!?!

I got a clear mantle decoration from halmark that had a poem that started "For you dad" and taped a picture if my daughter on the back to show through with the poem. My husband loved it and showed more emotion than I though he ever would =)

I bought a plain white t-shirt and fabric paint. I painted my daughters hands and pressed them on the shirt and painted the message: " Daddy I love you this much" another one with her footprints read" My daughter walks all over me". My husband loves to wear them and show them off.

Quoting Michelle :

What I did was for the kids as much as for there daddy. I bought my husband a set of lego building blocks (the big chuncky type) so he could sit of the floor and build things with his kids. For years they played with them together



Michelle what a great idea.  I will have to keep that in mind for the future.

My husband works out of town sometimes. so what I did was vidoe tape them together doing thing.{ playing, dancing, even eating dinner} I loaded it onto my computer and made a cute dvd with butterfly kisses playing in the background. He bringsit with him

If you like things like cross stitching you could frame his favorite quote or pick one just for him. I did this for my husband's first father's day. There was a quote that I always said to him for encouragement so I cross stitched it and put from our child and the date so he would always know when he received it.

What we ended up doing last christmas was go to the personalizationmall.com and did a key chain w/ Caroline and my photo on one side and on the other we put Daddy: Now you can take us where ever you go! Love, Caroline. He loved it and put it on his keys and always shows it off! (it was like $10 bucks!) These Ideas will be used you sent though! Christmas is right around the corner!

You could take some of his favorite pics of him and her and get them framed (or you could do it yourself, Hobby Lobby, Michaels and even Walmart have some really nice frames and matting) and give them to him. Or have one blown up to an 8x10 or bigger and put her hand prints at the bottom of it. :o)

Now i did this for my husband for his birthday, my daughter was on 1 1/2 months old at the time. My husband would get early with her and do her morning feed, this was around 5:30-6 a.m. So I gave him a nice card from our daughter with a message about how much she enjoyed the morning with just her and daddy and then gave a present of 2 bags a really, really good coffee beans. (My husband loves coffee !!) When my husband read the card he had tears in his eyes. So anyway even though your husband works long shifts is there anything that he does with Caroline, maybe the present could be related to that.

A handprint kit (Tender Times Handprint Memories) lets you put your daughters handprints in a frame with a picture and sweet poem. It's really sweet and can be hung at home or work. A pricier idea is a changing photo frame with pictures of you and your daughter with and without your husband.

A cute idea I have thought of was to make a tie tack using a penny from the year your daughter was born. You can get the hardware at a hobbly lobby. Using some wood glue glue the penny on allow to dry and you have a creative present that will remind your husband of your daughter. ;o)
