My girls and I assembled this easy and fun gift for my husband's birthday,
but I thought I would share it here as a Father's Day gift idea.
Nothing is better than pop from a bottle,
and my husband loves sampling all sorts of flavors.
Luckily we aren't too far from a fun
soda shop/diner along old Route 66 called "Pops."
We had fun choosing a variety of flavors from their huge selection
(we picked 5 different kinds of pineapple because that's his favorite)
and filled it in a wooden crate.
The crate was nice on its own,
but I used scrapbooking materials to dress it up as a gift.
"Dr. Cane Cola", "Deliciously Vintage Cherry Cola," "Waialua Pineapple Soda,"
and "Dang That's Good Root Beer" are a sampling of the flavors we chose.
Even if you don't have access to a soda shop, you can easily assemble a similar gift for the dads in your life. Usually grocery stores sell a small selection of glass bottle pop, but I've noticed that Target has a bigger selection than most. Even a case of IBC root beer in a dressed up case would be fun (check out Skip to My Lou's great idea of how to embellish the drink holder).
This post has me thinking about all the names for pop. Growing up in Minnesota, everyone called it "pop" (I still do, obviously), but I had a few friends who called it "soda" and others (usually from Texas) who referred to every carbonated beverage as a "coke".
What do you call it?
