There’s a special day coming up this month; Father’s Day! Last month I created a post with ideas for DIY Mother’s Day gifts. You told me you loved them! There is something special about DIY gifts; they are a labor of love. With that in mind, I came up with some DIY Fathers’ Day gift ideas too!
What Make Him Special
Take some time to think about the father figures in your life. What’s their relationship with you? Is this gift from you or on behalf of someone else, like your child? What do they enjoy doing? Do you have any special memories with them? How could you recreate that memory as a reminder of your bond? Here are a few ways you can personalize your gifts for the Dad or Grandpa in your life. A personal touch makes it unique!
DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas For Dad
Is there a room in their house that is referred to as Dad’s space? Gift him a custom sign for his zone! What are some things he’s really into? A fun idea for a dad who likes woodworking is engraving a hammer or painting on a tool. “Building Memories with Dad” is a great quote to write. You could do this with a mini hockey stick too or a baseball bat and swap out Building for Scoring.
DIY BBQ Caddy
This is a fun gift idea in general! For the barbeque connoisseur in your life, a BBQ caddy will be convenient and fun. Pick up a caddy or crate at a hardware or craft store. Create sections to hold his go-to barbeque sauces and rubs. Attach a bottle open outside the caddy. Paint it in his favorite team colors or stencil “Dad” on the outside. You will get to benefit from the delicious barbeques this caddy is used for too!
DIY Box of Favorites
Who wouldn’t love to receive a package containing their favorite snacks and items? Create a favorites box designed just for Dad with his favorite items! This could be things like snacks, drinks, socks in his favorite color, and IOU for a round of golf. You know him best!
DIY Task List
Does Dad have a Honey-Do list of projects to finish around the house? Gift him some peace of mind by tackling one of those projects or a few chores that he intends to get around to. A fun way to show your intention would be to wrap up a notepad that has been labeled Dad’s Task List or Honey-Do List and have the tasks or projects scratched off the list!
DIY Best Dad Mug
If your kids are old enough to be trusted with Sharpie permanent markers then why not let them decorate a coffee mug for Dad? They can have fun drawing their favorite activities and Dad memories on a special mug for him. When they are done, bake it in the oven to set it, like I did with this Christmas Mug. Just don’t put it in the dishwasher to clean, it’s safer to handwash this special mug.
Share Your DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas
I’d love to hear if you are planning to use one of these ideas, or if you’re doing something completely different! Share in the comments your plans for Father’s day. After Father’s Day, I will update with what we did for my husband and fathers. Last year my son did the hammers pictured above and they were a hit!
