Father's Day Sports DonutsAm I the only one that struggles with deciding what to get the men in their life for Father’s Day? When you’re young, a nice hand-drawn picture would do the trick, but once you hit your twenties, that’s not really acceptable anymore. So what do you get a guy for Father’s Day? The problem is, I’ll less familiar with the things that most people associate with “manly” things. I do know, however, that almost all men, with very rare if any, exceptions, LOVE food. In particular, donuts. Donuts decorated like sports? You’ve hit the jackpot. So don’t worry about making a trip to the hardware store and educating yourself on the newest power tools. Just buy some donuts and dress them up a bit! Nestled in a faux-grass lined bakery box and topped with printable sports pennants just for dad, these sport donuts will leave everyone swooning, and your dad drooling!
