Finding the perfect gift for dad on father’s day isn’t always easy. Here are some ideas to help you make this father’s day a very special one.
1. A Wish Bank
Whether it’s a fishing trip, golf vacation, or guy’s weekend hunting in a lodge in the middle of nowhere, every dad has a dream getaway that he’s saving up for. Show your support for his cause with a wish bank! Get creative with this one though. One of my favorite piggy bank ideas is to chisel a hole in the top of a glass block; simple, cheap, and a great creative gift!
2. Seed Bombs
Have a dad with a bit of a greenthumb? Well these seed bombs are just the thing for him. Simply grab some seeds of his favorite plant (veggies are always fun to grow), add some water and newspaper and mash it into the shape you want. You can then toss these seed bombs in some soil and start your gardening project with dad.
3. Serving Platter
Ever run into the problem of a cheese platter and nobody has and idea what type of cheese they are actually eating?? I’m sure your dad has. Make your dad this chalk cheese platter by buying some chalkboard paint and painting over any type of serving platter. Dads will love it and it’s guaranteed to be a hit at the next dinner party.
4. Custom Cufflinks
This one might take a bit of metalworking skills, but it is guaranteed to impress dad and not break the bank. Choose something he loves for your design and watch the smile it brings him when he finds out that his cufflinks are one of a kind.
5. Dad’s Sauce
Spice up dad’s day with a freshly made, one of a kind ‘Dad’s Sauce’. And if you really want to go all out, how about a nice meal to compliment the sauce.
6. Wooden Sunglasses
Hook up dad this father’s day with some sweet shades. Give your dad something that will stand out from the norm and protect his eyes during this long summer ahead of us. He’ll love them and when his friends ask where he got them, he’ll be able to brag that they were custom made.
7. Branding Iron
Next time your dad grills, make sure he puts his stamp on it, literally! A branding iron is a great way for you dad to play with his food in a way that everyone can appreciate. Besides, what guy doesn’t love another toy for his grill??
8. Dad’s Mixtape
A well thought out mixtape can become your dad’s favorite new playlist overnight. This one won’t cost you more than a few dollars, though you can be sure that dad will be thinking of you whenever he’s rocking out to his new mixtape.
9. Photo Album
A picture is worth a thousand words…a whole photo album though! Show your dad you love him with a photo album of all those special moments you’ve shared together.
10. Friend Dad on Facebook
It’s no secret that parents love to know everything about your life. One way they try to do this is by ‘stalking’ your Facebook. Friending your dad on Facebook is a quick and easy gift that will mean more to him than you think. Go crazy and put him in your profile pic.
