Homemade Gift Ideas for Dear Ol' Dad
Father'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:
- Create a one-of-kind homemade trophy that includes family photos and other pieces that reflect Dad's hobbies and interests.
- Take unique photos of the kids. Inspired ideas include kids holding quotes with what they love most about their dad and even kids writing "I heart Dad" on the bottom of their feet!
- Make a homemade card. Anything the kids make themselves is sure to please Dad, but why not try one of these fun ideas like a scratch-off card, a Superman-styled Super Dad card, or a handprint card.
- Decorate soda bottles with these fabulous Father's Day printables from The Idea Room. Or, fill empty bottles with Dad's favorite snacks. Get the how-to and printables from KMcKayDesigns.com.
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.
