CAMP Be Beat: Father's Day Gift Idea

I am super excited about this Father's Day gift.

This year I am doing a couple of themed gifts for Hubby.  This is the second one. The first one was The World's Best Pop Father's Day gift.

For the second theme, I chose CAMPING. I gathered together a few fun and cheap camping items.

Then I made up this super cute...er...I mean...manly drawstring bag (which I am more than just a little in love with).

I put it together similar to how I made the Angry Birds Drawstring Bag...minus the Angry Bird face of course!

I cut the shirt so the buttons and the pocket would fit on the front of the bag. Then I used another old t-shirt to line the inside. The drawstring is some old rope I found laying around Hubby's tool bench.

I packed it full of the S'mores makings.

I printed off a tag I made in PicMonkey. I did a Google Image search for "Retro Camping" and picked an image to use for the background. I cropped it, added a border and my text.

My second favorite thing just after the flannel drawstring bag is the camping catch phrase I came up with to go on the tag. I still giggle when I say it out loud to myself...

"A Dad like you just CAMP be beat."


I piled everything on top of my flannel treat bag and then secured it with more rope. I even tied it in a square knot, 'cause I am a legit woodsman like that.

Then I attached my tag to the rope with a cloths pin.

Second Father's Day gift done.

Perfect gift for the avid, recreational, or backyard camper.

Which category does your Dad/Husband fall into?
