Last-minute Dad's Day gifts he'll love
Don’t freak if you haven’t found anything for your old man. Here are some creative Father’s Day gifts to show Dad the love. is right around the corner! Have you gotten your dad a gift? If not, don’t worry girlies. Here are some great ideas that are DIY, DIWYD (Do It With Your Dad), or HYMO (Have Your Mom Order) that will show your old man who just how much you care.
A personalized piggy
Is there something your dad is always dreaming about, but can never find the time or moolah to make it happen? Get a colored ceramic jar or piggy bank from a crafts store, or head over to a ceramic or pottery painting studio. Using his favorite colors, paint something that says, “Boat Fund,” if he has always wanted a boat, or “Alaska Fund” if he has always wanted to travel to Alaska. Throw some spare change in it and wrap it as the perfect Father’s Day gift. It will show him that you have been listening and appreciate his goals.
Build a birdhouse
If your dad is handy he is probably able to do this from spare wood that is lying around your shed or garage. Head over to a craft or hardware store to get a birdhouse-making kit that you two can build together. The best part is spending some quality time with your pop! He’ll enjoy it just as much as you do.
Create custom faves
Using regular printer paper or self-adhesive paper you can label a few of your dad’s fave foods….or make a new “brand” of cookies or BBQ sauce for him. You can draw or find pictures that say things like, “World’s Best Dad,” “Only The Best for the Best,” or “No. 1 Dad.” Pick up his favorite candy or cookies you made and put ’em in a see-through bag. He’ll appreciate the new design on his old favorites.
New trick for an old tie
Don’t give your dad another boring tie this Father’s Day. Instead make your Pops a sunglasses case that he can tote around everywhere. Buy a tie from Goodwill. Beginning at the widest part, measure 16 inches, and cut. Slip waxed paper through the wide opening in the tie. Glue along the edges, except the triangle. Fold the tie in half (Hamburger style) the thinner end with the wider end until only the triangle at the wide end is left. Fold the thinner end inside the wide end. Place some Velcro at the tip of the triangle and the other half of the Velcro where the triangle will fold over. This is the opening of his prezzie. Fab, right?
