It’s that time of year again; Father’s Day is right around the corner. This day is incredibly special to a lot of people. Not just to receive free gifts (although that is a bonus!), but to honor the most important man in many people’s lives. Father’s Day doesn’t just give dads recognition, but it also celebrates stepfathers, fathers in law, and grandfathers. It’s a day for father figures. Although the day isn’t all about presents, it is about giving. It’s about showing him how much you appreciate all the things he does for you, in any way you can.
Our father figures mean a lot to us. They teach us important life lessons in childhood and support us as much as they can in adulthood. That’s why it’s important to show them how much they mean to you. For this reason, we’ve decided to dedicate this article to dads of all kinds. To help you make your dad’s day, here are some ideas for unique, handmade Father’s Day gifts.
‘Tache Up Your Father’s Day Card
When we think of dads, many different things come to mind: bad jokes, cars, sports, plaid shirts and, of course, mustaches! Jolee’s Boutique Dimensional Stickers are perfect for bringing a fun ‘tache-tastic theme to Father’s Day cards. The Bow and Mustache Large Punch from EK Success and the Stash of ‘Tache Stencils from Dylan Reaveley give you even more creative possibilities, from cut-out ‘taches to coordinating bow tie and ‘tache designs – perfect if he’s a man with classic style.
Race to Victory with 3D Papercrafting
Some dads live and breathe cars; they’ll find any excuse to be under the hood of a car, and when they’re not tinkering away, they’re watching the racing or gassing away (see what we did there?) about them. If this sounds like your pops, this Monochrome Cars Die-Cut Decoupage Sheet is the perfect solution to your card or gift-giving woes. It features a selection of die-cut decoupage car elements for you to layer together to create a stunning 3D image, which will look great on a card or as framed artwork. If your dad is more interested in motorcycles, or he’s a boat or plane enthusiast, there are plenty of designs available to suit his interests.
The Way to a Man’s Heart…
As the old saying goes, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. Of course you’re already there, but a sure-fire way to get a smile on Father’s Day is by making him his favorite treats. Whether he’s an oatmeal and raisin man or a chocolate fiend, make his cookies even better by shaping them into football-themed goodies! Wilton’s 4-Piece Cookie Cutter Set has your back.
Give Your Pops a Project
If you need a little break from the bad dad jokes and embarrassing dad dancing (is it inherently a thing in all fathers?), give him something to keep him busy for a little while. It’ll be a great gift for you, too! From classic one-liners to classic cars; this ’57 Chevy Bel Air Plastic Model Kit will enable him to showcase his modelling skills. If he’s more of a Shelby Cobra guy, choose this kit!
Bestow Bespoke Clothing Upon Him
When you look in a dad’s wardrobe, what do you often find? Shirts? Slacks? Maybe a sweater or two? If your dad’s wardrobe is in need of an update, it’s time to introduce a few new designs for his everyday wear and smart wear. Simplicity’s Vest and Tie Patterns Pack enables you to create waistcoats and ties to complement both casual and occasion looks, which you can duplicate for his biggest fan, too!
Tug at His Heartstrings…
Our final port of call is oh so simple yet truly touching. This ProMag Adhesive Magnetic Sheet enables you to turn your favorite photos into fridge magnets! This gift idea is perfect for Father’s Day – you can use a fun photo of your dad, one of the whole family, or one of just you and him. Whichever photo you choose, we guarantee your dad is going to love this special gift. Better yet, with it being displayed on the fridge, it will serve as a treasured memory and reminder of the loving sentiment behind it.
