Classic Gift, Custom Look: Fathers Day Shaving Kit

Dropping by a little late to let everyone know that I pulled off Fathers Day without anyone figuring out I had no plan. Yea, I know I'm risking it all by saying it here but I'm pretty confident neither of the fathers at large will be reading this. (And if they do? Well... I'm pretty sure if there was a Daughters Day they'd pull off worse. Jus' sayin'.)

With life going at the speed it does sometimes, even little miss celebrations master here has trouble keeping up now and then. Luckily, I had the brains to add some custom details to an old failsafe: the fathers day shaving kit.

At last minute, I ran to the drugstore for the fanciest and most imported-looking shaving creams I could find (conveniently, Shoppers sells Proraso Italian Shaving lotions. The labels aren't even fully translated--bueno!). After removing most of the original packaging and cramming the products into a clear makeup toiletries bag, I slapped on a label I made using my Silhouette Cameo. Baddabing, baddaboom, kitschy Italian themed gift for my wannabe-mobster stepfather. The best part? He loved it! And he was thrilled to discover the products aren't all that hard to find, which was an unexpected bonus (and caused a bitesize morsel of regret for all the limited-edition giftsets I've ever gifted).

I am more than willing to share the Silhouette file if anyone is interested! Shoot me an email or comment on this post to get in on the goods.
