DIY father’s day gift ideas are better than a store-bought item because your father is a man’s man. Showing him that you can craft something with your hands will reinforce the idea that he taught you well.
What better way to show him that you love him? Here are some ideas that we think he’ll love.
1. Beer Bouquet
First on our list of DIY father’s day gift ideas is a beer bouquet. If your dad is a beer connoisseur, then make him a bouquet of his favorite brews.
Throw some left fielders in there as well, just to show him your creative side!
2. Sports Trophy
Number 2 on our list of 20 DIY Father’s Day gift ideas, is to build your own trophy for your dad. If any father is like mine, then he’s a true sports fanatic.
If that so happens to be the case, why don’t you pick his favorite sport and team and craft a championship trophy personalized just for him?
I’m sure he’ll love it even more if his team will likely never win a championship or it will just make him incredibly depressed. It’s your call.
If your dad is the sentimental type, then throwing together a scrapbook is perhaps the best way to tug on those heartstrings.
Make it into a theme and print out a bunch of father related photos. If you have a father/daughter bond and like to watch movies, choose something related to that.
For example, my father and I call each other Sterling Archer and Stan Smith. So I would choose a theme related to those things, such as our favorite American Dad episode or our favorite Archer quotes.
Another theme would be how his fatherhood helped you grow into the person you are today. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a meaningful scrapbook or photo album.
