{Father’s Day Gift Idea} Candy Bouquet with Necktie Bow

{Father’s Day Gift Idea} Candy Bouquet with Necktie Bow

One of the easiest Father’s Day gift ideas is to give dad food. My husband has a sweet tooth so we are always giving him candy and other treats as presents. This year the girls picked out his favorite candy treats along with a few salty snacks, gum, sparklers and pop-its and we created a little dandy candy bouquet. Kids love participating in gift giving.

Don’t forget to let the kids participate in this entire project. It is super easy and in under 30 minutes you can have a gift for dad, grandpa, teachers, etc. For the bow, we used a tie! So easy to do.
