Bean is one lucky little lady. OK I suppose I’m pretty lucky, too. She has one heck of a Dad. Since day one, my husband has been hands-on.
He never left my side during my 19 hours of labor, he was up all night with me that first night home with an uncomfortable newborn suffering from acid reflux (unbeknownst to us), and every day he gets home from work the first thing Bean asks is, “Dad you want to play with me?” and he doesn’t hesitate, he jumps right in.
What do you get the Dad who deserves it all for Father’s Day? Luckily I somehow came up with the perfect Father’s Day gift idea this year.
I took inspiration from our brand new grill and our new-to-us boat to put together a gift that any Dad would love: a custom grill plate (inspired by Game of Thrones, his favorite show) and a Nautica Voyage Gift Set! The Nautica Voyage Gift Set you can pick up at a Macy’s near you easy-peasy, the Game of Thrones inspired grilling plate you’ll have to DIY…
DIY Game of Thrones Grilling Plate
I created my own design in Photoshop using the Game of Thrones font. Then I taped a piece of contact paper (liner side up) to a piece of regular printer paper, fed it into my printer, and printed the design out. Be careful because the ink will smudge VERY easily if you don’t let it dry for a while.
After the ink had dried, I cut out the design with an exacto knife. This tested my patience greatly. But, it was the only method I had on hand. If you have a Silhouette, I envy you. Once the design was cut out I attached it to the plate and traced it with the ceramic marker. Did it turn out absolutely perfect? No, but I’m OK with that. After all, it’s handmade. Make sure you bake your plate at 350 degrees for 40 minutes after letting it dry for 24 hours. For best results, hand wash after.
Father’s Day is June 21st, so head out to Macy’s to purchase your Nautica Voyage Gift Set ($128 value for just $65) and get to makin’ your Game of Thrones inspired Grill Plate!
