DIY Father’s Day Gift Idea Theme #1: Hobbies

Does dad have a go-to hobby that he just loves? Or a favorite sports team? If so, use these as a starting point for coming up with a fun DIY idea centered around the hobby, team or activity.

DIY Father’s Day Gift Idea Theme #2: Sweet tooth or meat lover?
When it comes to homemade gifts, home baked goods seem to be a huge hit. Find out whether your dad loves sweet treats, such as candy or bakery items, or would rather prefer hamburgers in the shape of a barbecue? You can make home baked goods into all types of shapes for the hobbies and sports your dad loves, or even go all out with a candy bar poster!
DIY Father’s Day Gift Idea Theme #3: Coffee or beer, or both?

Dads drink all different types of beverages, but does pops drink more of one thing than the other? Decorate a coffee or beer mug with a photo of the two of you, the family, or paint one yourself to personalize the gift. Or buy a case of beer to make a “beer cake”!

DIY Father’s Day Gift Idea Theme #4: Special Time Coupon Book
Coupon books are a fun way to say “I love you” by making “coupons” geared toward things dad will enjoy. From “One (1) Clean My Room” option to to “3 Bear Hugs,” these coupons can be a clever way to do something special. Show off your creativity with this option–the book cover and design can be just as important as the coupons themselves.
DIY Father’s Day Gift Idea Theme #5: The classic Father’s Day Card

Homemade cards are a classic way to the heart. A love-filled note is sure to make your special dad feel overwhelmed with love and pure joy. Remember, sometimes short is sweet and just enough!

Remember and keep in mind that your dad will love any kind of present you make for him. Just spending time with him and making the effort to show him how special he is and will make the day unforgettable.
