10 Father’s Day Gift Ideas Dad Will Actually Love

Father’s Day is just around the corner – 2nd September! The children and I have been busy gathering ideas on what to do.

As a Blended Family, thinking about what to give their Step Dad has been tricky for the children. They love Wayne, but don’t want their Dad to think that they love him more. It’s a bit of a tricky one for kids – it really is.

If there’s one thing that makes it easier on the children during Father’s Day, it’s that their bio Dad lives in Canada. So we celebrate two dates for Fathers Day!

Here are some simple yet amazing Father’s Day gifts that your children can make for their Dads and Step Dads alike.
