This Dad Spent 13 Years Making His Daughter's Graduation Gift & It Was So Worth It

Awesome Dad creates wonderful high school graduation gift for his daughter

Some things are worth more than money can buy. When high school senior Brenna Martin graduated, she thought her dad would gift her a "cheesy" card to commemorate the occasion -- but what she got in return is something she never imagined. Seriously, this father deserves an award for one of the most creative and heartwarming graduation gifts we've ever seen!


Who needs Pinterest when you have Dad?

Brenna couldn't help but share her beautiful present on the Love What Matters Facebook page. Needless to say, the Oh, the Places You'll Go Dr. Seuss book -- featuring personal messages from Brenna's teachers and coaches since kindergarten -- will leave you feeling some sort of way ...

And hopefully inspired to do the same for your child.

"Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach and principal to write a little something about you inside this book."

Way to go, pops!

I really love this gift idea, especially because it doesn't require a hot glue gun and remembering to clip coupons for a trip to the craft store.

Oh, the Places You'll Go was not only a fun play on all the adventures Brenna will have now that she's out of high school, but it was also one of her favorite books. And now she'll have an awesome copy, full of heartwarming and encouraging words from all the educators and influencers who helped her along the way.

It's just too cute -- and definitely shows a strong amount of dedication (thirteen years' worth!).

Aww, I'm gonna have to steal this for my little boys. Hopefully, they'll keep their copy, and share it with their children.

So great!
