What to get for Dad or Grandpa?

Fathers are the hardest people to find gifts for, aren’t they? They either have everything already, or what they want is so specialized that you dare not pick it out yourself. And it seems downright weird to give your father a gift card, doesn’t it?

Here’s my go-to solution. My father loved it. Maybe yours will to. If you aren’t lucky enough to still have your dad, this hot-drink mix works great for neighbors, teachers, hostess gifts… or even your favorite resale-shop owner. And it’s so much more soothing than that coffee she drinks all day long…

Mix this up, spoon into a decorative jar, add a mug or two, you’re done. Search out the perfect jars and mugs, of course, in a thrift shop. Dad wouldn’t want you to overspend.
