Father’s Day is right around the corner, and I wanted to share my genius Father’s Day idea that doubles as a gift and also happens to be my favorite picture of the year! This is the best Father’s Day tradition because it makes gift giving easy and mom will love it too!
Our Father’s Day Tradition
I buy Andy and Maxwell matching t-shirts, and last year Mila got in on the action. Don’t worry, I always pair the matching t-shirts with a gift certificate for a massage. Massage is our go to gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and our anniversary!
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #1
The “Lettuce Turnip the Beet” t-shirts you see in the picture above was the first set I bought when Maxwell was just 3 months old. (This is not a sponsored post, I’m just obsessed with Dad and kid twinning!) I got these tees from the coup etsy store.
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #2
I searched and searched, and finally decided on these adorable Little Dipper/ Big Dipper t-shirts from the Blackbird Supply Co. It’s harder than you might think to find hip matching father/ kid t-shirts that Andy will actually want to wear again and again. Part of the trick is Andy wanting to wear the t-shirt all of the time. That way when I see him put it on in the morning, I can sneak the matching t-shirts on Maxwell and Mila, and bam… “random” twinning all day, everyday!
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #3
For Andy’s 3rd Father’s Day, I took a short cut, and went back to Lettuce Turnip the Beet tees. I seriously love these tee’s and this time around, I only needed to buy 1 to complete the set. Mila could wear Max’s old one and Andy already had the t-shirt. So, I only bought one t-shirt for Maxwell.
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #4
This year, I ordered a new t-shirt set and I’m obsessed! I got The Original, The ENcore, and The REmix from KaAn’s Designs. How cute are they? I know I’m biased, but come on!
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #5
Pizza is always a winner in our house, so these t-shirts were perfect! These super cute pizza t-shirts are from Xeno Tees.
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #6
Andy loves Seinfeld, so I decided to DIY a few Seinfeld inspired t-shirts for my crew using my Cricut Joy electronic cutting machine. They turned out perfect!
I used a few of our favorite Seinfeld quotes:
- Serenity now
- These pretzels are making me thirsty
- No soup for you
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #7
We had a little more time on our hands in 2020, so tie dyed t-shirts for dad this year! It was fun and simple and the shirts have gotten a ton of use! I used this tie dye kit. It comes with everything you need except for the t-shirts.
Matching Father’s Day T-shirts #8
Kids grow fast, but Dad’s don’t so consider re-using a t-shirt from years past. This year, I just bought the kids bigger versions of the Lettuce Turnip the Beet tees from 5 years ago. These Lettuce Turnip the Beet t-shirts are one of my favorites!
I hope we can keep this tradition up for years to come. Can you imagine the cuteness of all 18 matching Father’s Day pictures at Maxwell and Mila’s high school graduation parties?! Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18th! Order matching tees now and thank me later.

Comments & Reviews
Thank you so much for this great idea. I just found some on lil punkers and I can’t wait for them to get here. I got one that said Jedi Master and the other is Jedi Master in Training. They have watched all the star wars movies together and I think this is a great gift. Adding the massage card as well.

I love these! I’m going to do something similar for my husband with a “You’re killing me smalls” shirt and “smalls” and “extra smalls” shirts for the kids. Totally loving your gift this year!

I almost bought the pizza ones last year! Super cute!
Great idea!! I might copycat this one, super cute and a new hip T is usually a good wardrobe addition!
