So I found the perfect gift for my dad. He is hankie guy, so I am getting him a custom embroidered hankie. I love Esty!!! It reads
You may give me away today, but I am always your little girl
Love, myname May 24, 2008
Makes me cry! Now I need one for mom. This is the one they offer but I don’t love the wording:
May joy be in your tears today as you share with me my wedding day Love, myname May 24, 2008
I am thinking of something along the lines of: You dried my tears when I was little, now…???
Could any of you creative people come up with something sweet?

Oh man, I got excited! I thought you had a poem for me!!
I actually found quite a few sites that make them doing a yahoo search, but they all ended up being $40 after shipping. This person has a great price, but I haven’t gotten a response from them yet.

I found another site. Slightly more expensive, but prettier.

Thanks Candi! I like the second website MOB hankie that says "To dry your tears as you have always dried mine". Sorry to have gotten your hopes up that someone had come up with something good 🙂

I’m doing the same thing! I’ve seen this quote on various hankies sold online:
"Mom- In loving thanks for all the years you dried my tears."
"Here’s a hankie to dry your tears, as you dried mine through the years" or "Here’s a hankie to dry your tears, for your love and support through the years"

Thank you so much! I completely missed that one on the second website. That’s the one I’m going to get for mom
I’m getting one for Dad, one for mom, and one for Future Mother-In-Law.
