G turned I-don’t-think-I’m-allowed-to-say on Saturday and although he’s not too crazy about adding another year to his age, Kate and I are birthday people and nothing was going to stop us from celebrating his day!
As always, G said, “Please don’t get me anything for my birthday.”
(Which is code for: Don’t spend any money.)
Usually I ignore him and get my shop on, but we’re currently saving our nickels and dimes for our next house, so this time I took his request to heart. I knew he’d love something homemade and heartfelt, so Kate and I made him a birthday jar!
To make, Kate and I created a list of things we love about her Daddy. I typed them up, printed, and cut each one out. We then folded them up and put them in a glass jar – G’s birthday jar!
To finish it off, I created a little 3-layer birthday jar gift tag and tied it on with twine:

Our birthday jar was a win-win! Kate and I loved having secret meetings coming up with our list of things we loved about our main man, and after we gave it to him on his birthday G said he loved it more than anything we would have spent money on.
Happy birthday, baby!
