DIY Gifts for Dad

DIY Gifts Dad Will Actually Like


It’s the thought that counts. Really. But when that thoughtful gift is something he actually wants, it turns his happy Father’s Day into a Happy Father’s Day, with a capital H. Whether he’s into fashion or food, we scoured the web to find the best DIY gifts that he’ll actually like (and some you might like, too).

 

For the Stylish Dad

Just in time for the summer sun, this DIY leather sunglass case from Clad & Cloth is the perfect addition to his summer style lineup.

For the Natural Dad

Extend his healthy habits from the kitchen to the bathroom with this DIY rosemary mint shaving cream from Food for My Family. It takes only a few ingredients and the result is a creamy concoction that is bliss for his face… hey, maybe this isn’t only for the “Natural Dad.”

For the Rockstar Dad

We are obsessed with these DIY guitar picks from Happiness is Homemade. Not only will they make Dad’s next jam sesh extra special, but they’re very simple and only cost a few dollars to make. Rock on!

For the Tech Dad

He has more gadgets than your kids have toys, but we’re betting he doesn’t have a handmade mouse pad. This DIY tutorial on Design Sponge uses a stencil, but if you’re making it with the kids, we like the idea of letting them create their own freehand artwork.

For the Professional Dad

Remember Shrinky Dink? Oh Happy Day is bringing it back with these DIY tie tacks. It’s like the hipper, manlier version of Grandma’s Brag Book. BONUS: If he’s having a rough day at the office, he’s bound to cheer up when he looks down at the nickel-sized version of his pride and joy. Want to make this gift the complete package? Add a blazer and a pair of dark wash jeans to give him a head-to-toe office look.

For the Hungry Dad

Jack and Coke are a pairing he’s familiar with. But in cake form? Brit + Co. made it happen, and it’s magic. This might have to be a gift he shares… if it even makes it to Father’s Day.

For the Sentimental Dad

The best gifts often don’t come wrapped in a box with a bow. Maybe what Dad really wants is a date night with Mom, a little help in the yard or even a free pass to take an afternoon nap — guilt-free. You can’t package up those experiences, but you can present them in a DIY coupon book, like this printable one from Spoonful.com.

For the Handy Dad

Last, but certainly not least, we had to include a DIY that uses our good friend, denim. This DIY roll-up tool organizer from Craftstylish is the perfect way to help him organize his tools in durable style. Just be sure to replace the jeans you recycled.
