Friday Favorites–Gifts for Dad

It hasn’t been the best week, but I can think of no better way to finish it off than to plan a great day for the papa bear in our house.  He’s earned it.  When Sunday comes, we’ll be pampering that guy as much as he’ll let us.  And there will be gifts.

When my husband was a road officer, he loved the night shift.  We spent a lot of time trying to make the bedroom dark enough so he could sleep during the day.  What he really needed was a Superhero Sleep Mask like this one from Cutesy Crafts.

Since the warmer weather is here, Dad might appreciate a can cozy, like this one from So Sew Easy.  I think it would be fun to work a little duct tape in there.
