This perfect gift gives back every weekend, to ME!
I sleep in (LATE) every Saturday morning. Daddy HAS to get up. The kids beg for him to get up. The kids never let him skip a weekend, this is serious ‘Daddy is the best ever and we love him soooo much’ kind of stuff!!
All the makings of the PERFECT Fathers Day Gift!! So what is it?
THE perfect gift for this Fathers Day is a Waffle Maker. Seriously!
We bought Dad at our house one about 2 years ago for Father’s Day and every single weekend & and every single birthday slumber party morning has been a waffle morning. He makes huge batches and freezes them so the kids have ready made pop-in-the-toaster breakfast before school. It’s brilliant !!
I get out of weekend breakfast AND school morning breakfast!! Kids can self serve from freezer to toaster and they LOVE Daddy’s waffles. He’s even come up with his own “healthy” waffle recipe so the kids get some good stuff with their weekend waffle! (yes I know there are sprinkles on that whip cream above . . . but its real whip cream!)
So think about YOU this Father’s Day!! Your kids will love you for it !!
