Homemade Gift Ideas for Dear Ol' Dad

Girl giving Dad a Father's Day cardFather's Day is this Sunday, and there's nothing nicer than your kids honoring their dad with a homemade gift. Here are some great ideas:

If you are looking for something that would work for a classroom or another group of kids, I love this idea, which adds the message "Daddy . . . I just love you to pieces" with a bag of Reese's Pieces. Get the free printable label here. Or, try "Dad, You Rock" with Pop Rocks and this free printable label.

And if homemade isn't your style, you can always get Dad a piece of his favorite team. Tokens & Icons has fun options, like baseball cuff links made from authenticated MLB baseballs for all 30 teams. Even more choices are available from a range of teams, including authenticated uniforms, bats, and vintage stadiums.

Looking for more ideas for celebrating dad? Check out our Father's Day Pinterest Board for lots of inspiration! And, please share your ideas below!

About This Blog

There's nothing artificial in these blog posts from New Jersey's hardest-working women. Where to go, what to do, and how to do it—with kids—are all part of the mix.

Meet Our Bloggers!

Editor Judy Grover is the mom of two rambunctious boys, who, she admits, completely run the household. Like this "jokey" line admitting her feelings of parental inadequacy, her posts focus on the joys and challenges -- in the rawest, "real mom" way -- of raising her toddlers into considerate, thoughtful men in the face of demands from both career and peers.

Essex County Real Mom Anna Sandler lives happily ever after with her Jersey-raised husband and three NYC-born children in the land of jug handles and disco fries. She loves baking and crafting with her kids, even if everything they make doesn't turns out Pinterest-perfect. Anna has never met a holiday she doesn't want to celebrate, and enjoys sharing ideas for everyday fun (indoor beach party, anyone?), as well as how to commemorate bigger moments from birthdays to first days of school.

Mercer County Real Mom Lauren Kim is a writer and the editor of mom blog and home décor website, MomHomeGuide.com. When she is not spending time with her children and spouse, she loves crafting and tackling various DIY projects around the house. To see more of Lauren Kim’s favorite pins, visit her Mom Home Guide Pinterest Board. Follow her on Facebook for more on her favorite craft and home décor finds.

Middlesex County Real Mom Renée Sagiv Riebling is a mom of two who never irons (Quick! Grab it out of the dryer while it's still hot instead!) or cooks anything that requires dicing, but she does love sweet sticky faces and family outings (check out her Jersey Jaunts column for ideas). She understands all too well about the minutiae of mothering, and her blog posts focus on parenting pointers--from experts or experience.
