As a child, you must have rushed to get your hands on a delicious frozen treat whenever you heard the ice cream truck drive by. Ice cream trucks were a source of frosty happiness.
Vibrant stickers of assorted, frosty ice cream treats were strewn across the truck’s sides, seeming so real and tasty, our mouths watered in anticipation.
There were chocolate nut cones, ice cream sandwiches and assorted ice pops in every flavor. Strawberry Shortcakes, Chocolate Eclairs and Cherry Bombs to name just a few…
And there was an ice cream of all – the Buried Treasure!
It was called the Buried Treasure because you had to eat all the raspberry ice cream to discover the “treasure” deep inside.
An imprint on the plastic stick! It might be a lion, a dog, or even a funny clown. Whatever it was, it was well worth the wait!
Bring back sweet old memories, and make a nice Ice Cream Truck Gift Box for your sister, brother, best friend…

Our fathers carry half of our genetic makeup.
Our relationship with our father plays a huge part of who we will become.
In many segments of society, people grow up without ever knowing their fathers. This is unfortunate because fathers should play as important a role in raising their children as mothers.
A father is the model of a man for his daughter and she will choose a man who is like him.
A father is the model for his son as well. Like father, like son. It’s a small phrase… Yet it packs so much emotion.
Fortunately, there is a trend for fathers to be more active in their children’s lives.
Father’s Day is the perfect day to tell your dad that he’s been the person you always look up to. Surprise him with a thoughtful gift, like a beautiful homemade gift box filled with
TOUCHING FATHERHOOD QUOTES FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.
Get inspired by Jolanda Meurs’ gorgeous box:

Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting.
Although it is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide, many countries observe this day on the third Sunday in June.
Father’s Day is not a federal holiday in most countries, with exception to Thailand because it falls on the same day as the King’s Birthday, which is a public holiday.
There are some suggestions that the idea of Father’s Day may originate in pagan sun worship.
Some branches of paganism see the sun as the father of the universe. The June solstice occurs around the same time of year as Father’s Day so some people see a link between the two.
Dad has a quiet and deep influence on us. On Father’s Day, let him know how much you appreciate and love him.
Forget a boring old card, give your dad something special to smile about this Father’s Day: a beer bottle gift box!
Fill the “bottle” with
COOL DADDY QUOTES AND FUNNY NOTES FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR,
and you’ll see how much he will love it!

Did you know that…
Father’s Day was the brainchild of Sonora Smart Dodd, whose mother had died giving birth to her.
At a time when many widowed men sent their offspring to live with relatives, Sonora’s father reared her and her five siblings alone, on a farm in eastern Washington.
In 1909, grown and married, Sonora was in church listening to a Mother’s Day sermon when the thought struck her that fathers deserved credit, too – especially hers.
Through her efforts, Spokane, Washington, held the first Father’s Day observance the following year.
Not many countries of the world celebrate fathers with their own official day. However, that is what is done in the United States every third Sunday in June.
Father’s Day is a special day for dads when they are pampered by their children, given gifts, and even surprised with breakfast in bed!
On Fathers’ Day it’s your turn to show how much you love your dad. Express your love with an awesome homemade gift idea.

He is loving and kind, he listens, suggests, and defends… He has the strength of a mountain, and the wisdom of ages…
He loved to tell you stories, he taught you to ride your bike. He surprised you with great toys. You used to share fudge sundaes and ice cream in a cone. Dads really do make a huge difference in their children’s lives.
Do you remember when you used to think that your daddy was a supper hero, and that he could do anything? You used to always say, “Daddy, fix it.” It wasn’t a question, it wasn’t a request, it was a statement. And he always tried his hardest to fix whatever needed fixing.
Fathers are really wonderful people. Working fathers face a unique challenge. They are trying to do it all. Carefully balancing work life with home life. They struggle daily to live up to “the image” as protector, provider, and hero.
Show your love to your special Dad on Fathers’ Day with a heartwarming handmade gift you have spent time and effort on.
For instance make a stunning gift box and fill it with
TOUCHING FATHER QUOTES AND CHEERING SAYINGS FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.

The bond you have with your puppy begins the moment he comes into your life and never stops growing.
You can nurture this bond though affection, training, grooming, playtime, general exercise and participation in various activities.
Puppies are highly social animals and spend most of their waking hours interacting with either their mother or littermates.
Many dog owners do believe that that their adorable little puppies can laugh, although the experts tend to argue about whether or not canines actually have the physical capacity to display happiness in this particular manner.
Dogs may “laugh” by breathing a certain way and making certain noises, and they may also appear to smile while they’re “laughing”.
A Cute Puppy Gift Box is a nice gift idea for any dog lovers and fun to make. See here how Rebecca Ednie has made one:
In your own box you can place
PROMINENT QUOTES AND SAYINGS FOR 365+1 DAYS
and your fantastic present is ready.

The beneficiary of your unique present should read only one message of yours each day.
