Father’s Day gift ideas
- May 22, 2012 at 7:40 am #22161
I always wait until the last minute and end up buying Father’s Day gifts that aren’t too useful, thoughtful, etc. This year, I thought I’d get a head start and maybe do some type of arts & craft project with my daughter. WIth all of the cool things I’ve seen on Pinterest for Mother’s Day & Teacher Appreciation I know there has to be some nice ideas for Dads.
Any suggestions?May 22, 2012 at 10:00 am #22163
I don’t have a homemade idea but my husband has wanted thin coasters for a long time. We’ve looked high and low for these. I recently saw them on Snapfish so I’m hoping to get him a set with pictures of the kids. http://www.snapfish.com/snapfish/gifts/product=coasters
Another idea is I saw on pinterest, a cute black apron with white handprints on it (of the kids of course) for grandma. Would be cute for dad if he likes to grill/wear aprons.
I have a medium size scrapbook album that the kids are creating over the years for dad (each has an album.) Each birthday and Father’s Day, the kids create a page for the album. This year I think the page will be this:
I’ll probably see if I can also get him out golfing that day with some other dad friends too.May 30, 2012 at 10:39 am #22164
I had stumbled across this website last year and found it to be a good source of crafty ideas. There are easy crafts (printables, etc. which I opted for!) and more involved ones. My kids loved the idea of father’s day coupons. They gave my husband a whole book of coupons that he could redeem throughout the year.November 19, 2014 at 5:32 pm #31515
Here is a nice selection of free printable items for Dad: http://activitiesforkids.com/category/holidays/june/fathers-day/
Cute ‘World’s Best Day!’ mini trophy, ‘Happy Father’s Day’ banners, printable placemat for dad, printable coupon books where kids can type in or hand write in what the coupons are for. Also you’ll find bookmarks, craft ideas and cards.
