Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, July 17, and for many people, the quest for a good gift looms. Mother’s Day can be easy; buy a box of chocolates, serve breakfast in bed, have a picnic, or treat her to a spa day. But for Father’s Day, the act of gift giving becomes challenging, especially for those dad’s who have it all.
After massive growth in the beginning of this year, we recommend heading to Pinterest for some great homemade gift ideas. Here are some of our top picks for Father’s Day presents from Pinterest:
From TheIdeaRoom.net: Fill soda bottles with his favorite candy or snacks. Click the link for more information and templates.
From Etsy.com: Frame a photo of the family’s hand prints, or just the kids’. The kids will love this and feel a part of the process.
From BrassyApple.blogspot.com: Cut out letter stencils and frame the photos in a collage/montage frame. This would be great for his office at home or at work.
Aside from the sentimental, there are always other options for dad, including grilling supplies, his favorite liquor or beer (or maybe a brewery tour?), fishing gear or gear for his favorite sport, electronics, games, and more.
You could go all-out with tickets to his favorite sporting event, or make dad a “boy’s night” where the wife and kids setup a poker table, food, etc. and let dad and his friends enjoy the evening.
At the end of the day, it’s all about dad. Think about what he loves the most and what he’ll enjoy. Sometimes it’s the simple things — a walk at sunset with the family, our grilling by the pool that make dad so happy. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive, just memorable.
