Question for you. WHAT do you give your sister and brother-in-law when they get a new camper? 
A Camper Housewarming Gift, of course! (or should I say a camperwarming gift?)

And just WHAT might that be, you ask? 
Well...I have a few ideas, take a look.




(This post contains affiliate links to help you locate products.  All opinions are 100% my own.  No product was given to me.)

As you know, storage space is tight in a camper...so why not give collapsible kitchen gifts that can be stored easily when not in use? 
Collapsible Measuring Cups and Nesting Measuring Spoons  are perfect for cooking. 
Mini Cutting Board Set with Knife will be used often. 
Mini Collapsible Colander and Strainer is the perfect size for rinsing fresh berries, vegetables and even pasta.
Come to think of it...these gifts would be perfect in any home, not just small spaces.


I used one small, plastic bin with tissue paper to hold and package the items. (Bin found at the Dollar Store.)

Place all the items in the bin and tie on the tag with ribbon.
Hand deliver.

Father's Day is such a fun time to celebrate the men in your life.
Dads, Grandpas and Uncles always appreciate a party in their honor. What better way to celebrate than with some fun foods, treats and puns? I've pulled together 8 Father's Day party theme ideas from the blog.  Take a look.  Maybe you'll find the perfect idea to celebrate Dad this year?


1.  FISHING
Fishing is a great theme to celebrate dad.  You'll love the 'fish' related menu and so will the kids.  Dad will especially 'groan' at all those fish tale puns and who doesn't enjoy a fun photo booth?






2. PIZZA 
This theme is feast!  It's a pizza party for Dad!  Make your own pizzas and have dessert pizzas, too!  Free printable tags included as well as some fun pizza ideas...with moustaches, of course!



3. TOOLS
This is not a 'drill' it's a party for Dad!  Is your dad a handyman? Use all those 'tools' (props) from the garage to help decorate for this party. Fun snacks go perfect with tool names.  Free printable tags included. 



4. DONUTS
This was actually a birthday party for my brother, but could easily be adapted to a Father's Day Donut Party.  If Dad is a donut lover, this is the party theme for you!  The donut tree is surprisingly easy to pull off!


5. BASEBALL
Baseball is always the favorite party theme in our house.  Lots of great baseball treats including the ever popular home plate cupcakes.  Mmm!



6. BASKETBALL
Got Game?  This is the perfect dinner party for Dad!  He'll be shooting hoops from his seat and he'll love the puns straight from the game...especially the 'turnovers'?!




7. FOOTBALL
If Dad has never had a football themed party, then this is a must!  Lots of menu planning ideas will help you 'throw' a great celebration in no time! Add a runner of artificial turf to the table and you've got a party!

8. GOLF
This party is Just Fore Dad!  C
lever golf puns and sayings match up with yummy brunch foods.  Your golfing dad will love this par-tee! Free printable tags included.  The tee-off cupcakes were a 'hit'!


Well, did I get your creative juices flowing?  What theme would you like to help celebrate Dad?  Let me know.  I might just make that our next one?

Graduation cards are flying out of here faster than you can say 'Congratulations'!  I'm not sure why, but we sure know a lot of high school and college graduates this year!  Whew!
If you're looking for a fun graduation card and gift, take a look at these crafty graduate amazon cards.








You may have remembered this post when I crafted up some 'amAzing' dad gift cards.  This time it's all about the 'grAds'.







This post contains affiliate links to help you locate supplies.

Supplies:

-cardstock.  (Preferably in the graduate's school colors.)
-glue stick, tape, baker's twine
-large envelopes
-black letter stickers
-white letter stickers 
-Amazon gift cards (Use an Amazon gift card with the large letter 'a' on it. Any amount.) 





Cut your cardstock to the correct size to fit in your envelope.  I used two colors.  One for the back and a smaller size to fit on top.
Adhere with glue stick.

Use the white letter stickers to spell the word, 'GRAD' directly on the gift card. My letter 'G' hung over the edge of the card, but that doesn't matter. If your sticker letter set doesn't have exclamation marks, use a lowercase letter 'j'.  Just cut off the curl on the end and flip it upside down.
Use the scotch tape (make loops with tape) to stick the gift card onto the cardstock.



 Using the black letter stickers, spell out the message,
"Congrats"  or "Way to Go" onto the cardstock, above the gift card.

It's even more fun when you have lots of different black letter fonts.  This is a great way to use up some of those leftover stickers you might already have. Use capital letters mixed in with lower case letters.




I tied on some baker's twine around the entire card to finish it off.



 Match the twine color with the card...of course!
 

Another quick option if you don't have letter stickers is to use a fine tip, white paint marker like this one.  Write directly on the card and let dry.





Congratulations to all those graduates!

Housewarming gifts are always fun to give!  Not only do you get to tour a home when you deliver the gifts, you get to join in the excitement of friends moving into a new place. 

I've got a summer-loving, housewarming gift idea for you...that just happens to be in my favorite colors. (This post contains affiliate links.)


This showy gift couldn't be simpler. 
Purchase, assemble and tie on a printable tag.  Done!
Take a look.

First, find a great basket.  I always look for baskets on sale or at garage sales and thrift stores.  Give them a good cleaning (wash down, spray with Lysol and air dry) then they're ready to be filled.

Next, select items to fill the basket.

Our friends had just purchased a home near the beach. 
I chose 2 fluffy, turquoise beach towels to go with a plastic, turquoise pitcher and cups.  Perfect for summer entertaining.

I purchased my products here and here.
Here's some more great turquoise options found on Amazon


Using white tissue paper , arrange products in basket, stuffing tissue paper around and in the products.



Now, click here to print the tags.
Print in landscape mode on cardstock.




I used colored cardstock to back the tag along with an eyelet and turquoise ribbon to finish it off.


Tie on the tag with a simple ribbon.



Hand deliver to your friends and enjoy that home tour!


Here's another housewarming gift idea and printable for you.
