Too often we overlook buried treasure out in that garage. Often, I suggest hosting a Giving Party to offload some unwanted home items. But don’t overlook the garage!
If you’re lucky enough to still have your Father around, enjoy him while you have him.
Earlier this week, I heard a woman share about the tools in the garage that she and her sisters fought for. Dads often don’t realize that their garage is a goldmine to the family. Talk to the men in your family about who might want to one day get the tools they’re no longer using.
Dads and Granddads can be recognized and affirmed on Father’s Day with a new man-gift. Nothing says ‘MAN’ more than a new tool or a new place to put the tools. The men I have known like to pick out their own tools. But we daughters, sons and wives can give them a new place to put them. I’ve seen the joy and pride men put into organizing their new toolbox, so it is my favorite suggestion for you to consider for this upcoming Father’s Day. I got a kick out of watching my husband carefully measure and cut the quieting cloth for the bottom of each drawer.
These men have put together and repaired household items, toys and bikes, plus they have probably done some car work for the kids and grandkids. Letting them know in a special way how significant they have been in your life has great meaning and shows them our appreciation.
The only problem is deciding which toolbox to give them. Make a list of tools and ask for guidance at your local hardware store.
