I always feel like it's way easier to think of a gift for mother's day than father's day. How many ties and wallets and golf stuff can a dad have?
Here are some of the DIY gifts that we have our eyes on for this Father's Day....
1. Car Shirt (from The Blue Basket)
This is a great gift for the dad that needs a break but still wants to spend time with his kids. He simply lays down, and he is an instant fun mat. The kids will be entertained by the roads and pit stops, and dad will get a "back rub". Win-win.
2. Family Handprints (from Nannygoat)
This is so sweet. But how to get dad's hand print without him knowing? :)
Stone for the Garden (from Crafts by Amanda)
Isn't this fun? A good one for the all-natural kind of guy. This is next to free and the kids will have a fun time making it!
4. Candies for Dad's with a sweet tooth (from Dating Divas and My Eye Q)
My husband, Jake, isn't really into sweets (and is definitely NOT into chocolate), but he does harbor a fondness of the occasional season of jelly beans.
5. Handprint Poem (from Kaboose)
A fun idea for the littlest ones to give to dad.
6. Bookmark (from Martha Stewart)
Classy. I could imagine giving it to fathers or grandfathers.
7. TicTacToe Set (from Organize Your Stuff Now)
This one is made from items from the Dollar Store. So those on a budget, this one would be for you!
8. Star Wars Snack Pack (from Sandy Toes and Popsicles)
This is a pretty much like the super hero snack pack going around, but for the Star Wars fans.
9. Fire Starter Kit (from Homework)
This is a great idea for an outdoorsy father. And if you pack the kit with more than matches and kindling, like s'more supplies, you've got the makings of a memory.
10. Mustache Mug (from The Tortoise and the Hare)
Mustaches are all the rage right now. And whether the father your honoring has one or not, he'll be sure to get a kick out of this whimsical mug. I bet you'll be fighting over who gets to use it next!
What will you be making for Father's Day?
