O-FISH-al Best Dad – Fathers Day Gift for Fisherman

fishing gift-8369

 

Alright, I know I’m a little late to share this Father’s Day gift idea with you for this year. But since I’ve already instagrammed it, I thought I would show you what I did so you can be ready for next year, if there is a man in your life who loves fishing. This gift would be the perfect complement to the Father’s Day Fishing Dinner I blogged about before.

You need a basic tackle box. I bought this one at Walmart, partly because it had all of the contents that I needed–fishing-wise–inside, so I wouldn’t need to spend a ton of money on things like hooks, line, and sinkers.

I designed all of the tags and printed them on a sheet of label paper, so I could easily adhere them to my tackle box and accessories. This is kind of the title label: The World’s O-FISH-al Best Dad”.

A little fish tag, to make sure he knows it is for him. fishing gift-8368

 

 

I actually used this tag a couple of times, it says, “I want to TACKLE you and give you FISHY kisses.” But I had to put it on the outside of the tackle box, to make sure the pun was understood. fishing gift-8363

 

Along with the box, I gave him this net with a tag that says, “What a REEL-y great catch!” If I wasn’t so cheap…and if he didn’t already own a dozen reels, I would have given him a new reel along with the net, for the sake of my play-on-words. But I figure it works either way.

But wait! There is more! Let’s look inside our tackle box.

It is full of fun fishy food and fishing supplies. I packaged the hooks, the fishing line and the sinkers in one bag with a tag that says, “I’m yours! Hook, line, and sinker!” Another fishy kiss tag on the Swedish fish bag to cover that and the Goldfish crackers.

And a can of worms, that read, “Don’t mean to open a Can of worms, but you’re #1!”

So you maybe asking, “Where on Earth do I get a can of worms, and would I want my husband to have one?”

This is where we get a little crafty…

You’ll need a small can (I used a peanut can with a pop top lid as well as a plastic lid), Gummi Worms, My label, some glue, and the right kind of can opener. Mine is from Pampered Chef and it cuts the lid in such a way that you can put it back on the can.

can of worms

STEP 1: Turn the can upside down and use the can opener to cut what would normally be the bottom of the can leaving the pop-top on top intact.

STEP 2: Clean out your can well. I chose peanuts, because I figured that would be easier to clean than something like tomato sauce. But if dad has peanut allergies, that may not be your best option. Just sayin’.

STEP 3: Fill the can with gummi worms.

STEP 4: Use a hot glue gun or other adhesive (even tape if you hare having a tough time) to attach the lid, and seal the can closed.

STEP 5: Add printable labels to front and top of can.

BSB got a kick out of opening up his can of worms.

I am sharing my printable designs for your personal use if you have a manwho is a fan of fishing, too. Click on the thumbnail for the full-sized image.
