This is my husband's first summer at his new job as a Florida Wildlife Officer and he spends nearly every day out on his boat under the hot summer sun. For the past month the temperatures have been in the high 80s and low 90s. Even though he practically bathes in sunscreen he has the worst farmers tan and set of raccoon eyes I have ever seen. When he gets home from work he is exhausted and wants nothing more than to soak up the air conditioning while relaxing on the couch. He will be working on Father's Day this year so I thought it would be fun for the kids and I to meet up with him for a picnic lunch and bring along a surprise Coke Float gift basket as a treat.
This past week the kids and I took a trip to Walmart and bought everything we needed to put together the gift basket and even found a bottle of Coke with his name on it. I also picked up some of the Classic Coke glass bottles that say 'Dad' and 'Hero' on them. Since my husband is a big Coke drinker I know he will be really excited when we pull out the basket full of coke floats.
I made a tie shaped printable to make the gift basket feel more festive. You can grab the free printable HERE or by clicking the image below.
The printable file has three different color options or cut them all out to give to all the dads in your family!
I filled a large glass jar with plastic cups, pre scooped ice-cream in pint size mason jars, Coke bottles with ‘Dad’, whipped cream, straws and spoons. I also decorated the outside of the jar with ribbon and the tie printable.
The kids are excited to have the picnic with their dad next weekend and see him out on his boat. Even though they have seen his boat and watch him leave for work each day they don’t get to actually see him out working that often. How are you planning to celebrate your dads next weekend?
If you want to grab a Coke for your daddy-o you can find a list of the Walmart locations carrying a larger selection of the personalized bottles HERE. A list of all the names can be found HERE.
