    Hey ladies

    I want to get something really special for my husband to celebrate his first ever fathers day but don't have a clue what to get, any ideas would be fab? Am thinking something sentimental that he can keep.

    What are you all getting your babies daddy?

    We did baby footprints in a local pottery cafe when lily was a baby and we've continued it with handprints now she's older. We started off with a mug but now i do tiles so they can all be put together to see the changes over the years. We'll do the same with jack too.

    Here's the kind of thing.... http://www.pipspots.co.uk/Hand_&_Footprints.html

    We don't really do pressies, but I am going to get him a card made and attempt to get casts of James' footprint and handprint (so far the little wriggle monster has made it impossible)

    I have a friend who has painted us a few things over the years so I want to try and get him a painting of his fave James pic BUT friend is out of country so it may have to be a Birthday pressie for him instead.

    It's my Birthday the day after so we'll be going out for dinner.

    Love the hand and footprint ceramics but i am rubbish at painting lol

    Hubby is an artist himself and a budding photographer so those things are ruled out as he will just moan that he could have done a better job for free lol

    I've already got OH his Father's Day present. He loves carrying C and takes her for a walk in the baby Bjorn every morning, but it was awful for his back and not great for her so we always talked about getting a Manduca or an Ergo. So I got him one last week and he has loved using it :)

    I did think about doing a mug or something but I have loads of mum mugs I never use and they are just taking up space lol xx

    I've created a card with Max's photo on Moonpig and I'm getting cufflinks with Max's date of birth engraved on them, I know OH will feel special when he wears them :) xxx

    I haven't let him take our lo swimming yet as i wanted her to have all her jabs first and hold her head up so I'm going to take them both on Father's Day and I got an 'I <3 My Daddy' swimming costume. I'm also going to make up a picnic and go for a nice long walk and pack his favorite ale.

    I bought OH a frame for a pic of the boys. My Sister's a photograher and has a lovely one she's printing off for me. I also got him a silly No.1 Dad tax disc holder and air freshener for his work van and a 'box of smiles' from Thorntons. That'll do him. Like I say we get special pressie's for Birthdays x
