This year we are on a tight budget when it comes to money as I am on Mat leave and a baby is an expensive family member!
So we are opting for creative, handmade and low priced gifts.
For my Dads birthday I decided to get him candy. (he raids my candy dish every time he is here)
So with the candy bars came a story. We placed each candy bar in a numbered envelope with the story written on each envelope leading up to a candy bar inside.
Here is is:
Happy Birthday Dad/ Grampie!
All in all it cost just under 10$ for the candy -plus a few candy bars we had to inspect ourselves! 1$ for the envelopes and about 15 minutes to put together! But- it will take him days to eat them and years to burn off all of the extras calories!
