5 from-the-heart Father's Day presents


 
Father’s Day is just around the corner! Still stumped as to what to get Dad this year? We’ve got gift ideas that he’ll love…and that won’t cut too much into your allowance.


Father’s Day Coupons Dad’s car is so grimy that you wrote “I need a wash” in the dust on the back window. He’s been complaining about having to mow the lawn for a week (but hasn’t done it yet). You know that he loves bacon. A perfect gift, at no cost to you, is a book of coupons. Print out some faux coupons saying “Free Car Wash”, “100-percent of lawn mowing,” and “This coupon entitles you to one breakfast in bed”.


Photo Bookmarks Here’s Martha Stewart’s take on the classic photo frame Father’s Day gift: a photo bookmark. Just cut a 2-inch wide piece of ribbon that’s three inches longer than twice the height of a book and snip a point at each end to prevent fraying. Then, sew a 1 ½-inch by 2-inch photograph onto the ribbon by hand-stitching each corner. Tuck it into a new book he’s dying to read.


Father-Daughter Scrapbook Your dad loves spending time with you, so why not make a photo and memorabilia montage of all the good times you guys have had together? You can get a new scrapbook at any crafts store. Then, all you need to do is collect pictures of you and Dad on family vacations, tickets to the baseball game he took you to and notes that tell him just how much you love him.


Soup Can Pen Holder This craft will require some supplies. You’ll need an empty soup can, some felt, 3-D paint, scissors and glue. Start by cutting a piece of felt that fits around the entire cylinder of the soup can. Then, glue the felt onto the can. Write a message like “World’s Best Dad” onto the felt using the 3-D paint. Get creative with it by personalizing for your dad. Does he like football? Use green felt and paint on some yard lines.


Throw a Dad’s Day Barbecue Use your awesome planning skills to get together all Dad’s friends and family for a barbecue at your pad. Then crank up the grill and get started on those hotdogs and hamburgers. Yum!
