Are you still wondering what to make dad for Father’s Day this year? Well, I’ve put together 7 handmade gift ideas for Father’s Day gift giving. I thought maybe if I shared some handmade gift ideas for Father’s Day that I could inspire you to give dad something handmade or homemade this year.
I love celebrating Father’s Day. It’s probably my favorite holiday as it’s a time when our children and I get to show our appreciation for their dad. My husband just does SO MUCH for our family and this little Hallmark holiday gives the children and I an opportunity to show our appreciation.
7 Handmade Gift Ideas for Father’s Day
As I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for handmade gifts for Father’s Day this year, I thought maybe you were in the same quandry and it just might be helpful if I shared some handmade gift ideas for Father’s Day with you.
Plus, maybe this is the little encouragement you need to try gifting something handmade!
The Daddy Ties
What an adorable twist to this printable tie questionnaire that Kiki & Company shared on The Crafting Chicks blog. The Daddy Tie is really easy to put together. Simply download, print and cut out the tie. Then have your child (or help them, if they’re too little) fill out the questionnaire. Glue the top to the bottom, punch a couple of holes, add string and you have the perfect Daddy Tie! I think these are especially adorable for the little ones because you just never know what they’re thinking! My friend Carrie from Kenarry: Ideas for the Home received a similar paper from her son for Mother’s Day. He obviously thinks his mom doesn’t laugh enough! Just too cute!!
Handprint Daddy’s Grilling Partner
Download this free printable, apply some paint to your child(ren)’s hands and you’ve got one adorable and absolutely priceless keepsake that is perfect for Father’s Day gift giving. You’ll find the free printable on Glued to My Crafts Blog.
Nautical Sisal Rope Coasters
These DIY Nautical Sisal Rope Coasters from Making Home Base are such a great idea for a handmade Father’s Day gift. You could easily paint any design you want on the rope. You only need a few supplies: sisal rope, glue, paint, stencil, paint brush and ModPodge.
Bottle Cap Fishing Lures
Although these Bottle Cap Fishing Lures are a little more difficult to make, you have to admit they’d make for a pretty unique handmade Father’s Day gift. You can read all about these Bottle Cap Fishing Lures on 2 Little Hooligans blog.
Flannel Shirt Handwarmers
Who doesn’t have an old flannel shirt lying around in the bottom of a drawer or back of a closet somewhere? Well, put that hold flannel shirt to good use with these DIY Flannel Scrap Reusable Hand Warmers from Sadie Seasongoods.
And while you are cutting up that old flannel shirt to make hand warmers, you might as well cut it up some more to make these DIY Flannel Coasters from View from the Fridge. These flannel coasters are easy to sew and have a piece of felt in the middle for extra absorbency.
Slap Yo’ Mama Butt Rub
You’ve gotta go to That Susan Williams blog and read the meaning of the name, “Slap Yo’ Mama Butt Rub” for this dry rub recipe. All joking aside, I think this is a great Father’s Day gift idea. Simply combine all the spices into a jar and you’ve got the perfect gift for the BBQ lovin’ dad!
I’ve also shared a few Father’s Day gift ideas right here on The Birch Cottage blog. Some of my favorites are:
DIY Belt Rack
DIY Sugar Hand Scrub
Grilled Pork Tenderloin Recipe
We always try to make Father’s Day a special day for my husband. He doesn’t want or expect much, but it makes us feel so good to do something extra special for him because, well, he deserves it! I’m sure you feel the same way about your dad/husband. Making something handmade makes the gift priceless. Besides, it’s not the gift that matters, but the heart that goes into the gift!
These are all handmade gift ideas that I think would make great Father’s Day gifts! Do you have a favorite? I really think those fishing lures are a unique and one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gift idea. I don’t know how practical they are or if they really work as fishing lures, but it’s one clever idea, don’t you think?
Hope you make your Father’s Day a handmade gift giving day!
Til next time…
