I’ve always hated the phrase Trophy Wife. Because there is always so much more to being a good wife than just looking good. Ha! But, for Father’s Day, I usually like to tease my husband that he is a Trophy Husband and Dad.
I created these fun little Trophy Dad cards a few years ago to stick around the house. But, originally I had the idea to get a big trophy, fill it with gifts and treats, and present it to our Trophy Dad on Father’s Day.
And, I’ve had this idea for years. But, I had never been able to find a toy (cheap) trophy large enough. I could have spent a pretty penny to get a trophy that would work, but I’m not sure my husband would’ve appreciated it after finding out how much it cost. So, this year, when I ran into a decent sized trophy at the party store, I just knew I had to create my Trophy Husband award as one of my Father’s Day gift ideas.
To start, head over to your local party store and pick up a plastic and cheap trophy. Or, if your husband has a cup trophy from his childhood, you can use that as well. Next, gather up a bunch of small gifts and treats to gift. I picked out some favorite candy bars, snack packs, gum, gift cards, etc. Then, simply print out the free printable Trophy Dad award card on kraft paper. Write a sweet little note in the card and present it with the trophy to your Trophy Dad!
