10 DIY Father's Day Gifts To Make Your Dad Feel As Special As He Is

Fathers can be.....complicated. Just like the relationship one shares with theirs. So, really, there's no prescribed set of adjectives I can employ here, to sum up how you feel about your dad. For some people, their dad is the first superhero they knew, the Iron Man they met before Tony Stark came into the picture. For some more, he's the man who magically has the answers to life's most tangible problems, from how to change a tire to how taxes actually work. And for several others, their dad is the most selfless person they know, the man who consistently prioritised his family's wishes over his own, neglecting what he needed so you could have what you wanted. 

 

Whatever the case might be, we owe a lot to our dads. So narrowing down a gift for the man who gave you everything, is even more complicated than it sounds. I mean, you could always opt for an easy way out, and celebrate this Father's Day with another set of cufflinks or a new electronic device. Or you could go that extra mile, and create your own token of gratitude. Something handmade with all the love, care and affection you harbour for your dad, but try as you might, just can't put into words. 

 

 

We think you should opt for the latter choice. And to help the cause, we've enlisted 10 DIY Father's Day gifts that are easy to make, but will convey at least some fraction of what he means to you. Because let's get real, no gift will ever suffice, so something that comes as close to it as possible, is what you should settle on! 

 

1. A Jar Of Coupons 

This Father's Day gift idea is one that comes with long term benefits for your beloved dad! Create a bunch of coupons that your dad can "cash" when he wishes to. Include chores he has always taken the onus for, like washing the car or bathing the dog. Also add coupons for the things he deserves but would never ask for, like a chore-free afternoon, or a day he gets to sleep in till noon followed by being greeted with breakfast in bed. Throw in a couple of hug coupons as well, because as tough as your dad might be, everybody could use a good bear hug every now and then!

2. Funny Greeting Card 

Why should dad be the only one to crack lame jokes, right? This hilarious Trump greeting card sums up in the man's iconic eloquent style, just how great your dad is. While this one is our favourite so far, because it's truly handmade in every sense, you can also go with one that has a funny tagline and doesn't demand artistic expertise. Some suggestion: "It's not a dad bod, it's a father figure!" or "I'm just resting my eyes" - Dad, since 1996.

3. Dad Joke Photo Frame 

Because presenting your father with a framed picture of you guys together, is a bit of a cliched Father's Day gift. This DIY photo frame, on the other hand, represents everything your old man stands for. Strength, support and punny humour. Also, it will take you about a New York minute to find two rocks, paste some googly eyes and get it framed. And, it will make your dad chuckle!

4. Personalised Tool Box 

No, you don't necessarily need to make the crate box yourself. Although we'd recommend if you're going the DIY way, you might as well walk the whole path. You know your dad is the first one to be called when something needs to be fixed around the house, while a professional repairman is reserved for truly emergency cases. So your father more than deserves to have a place to store his stache of tools, and equipment. You can opt for a variety of designs but we like this one with glued-on cardboard letters because of the simplicity!

5. Mounted Bottle Opener Board 

Your dad is all about being practical, so why not celebrate this Father's Day with a DIY gift that he can use for ages to come? This DIY mounted bottle opener is super easy to make, and with just 3 things, namely, a wooden plank, a pen stand, and a wall mount bottle opener (you can order one online!). Add a personalised quote to make it more special, and insert a hook at the back so you can put it up in your kitchen.

6. Moustache Wax

Trust me, it sounds like a lot of labour, but all you need are two ingredients to whip up your own batch of moustache wax! You need to melt some beeswax and coconut oil together to create this taming wax, followed by sourcing a cute tin can that you can pour your mixture into. Colour the tin can and write something personalised for that extra DIY touch, and if you feel like going all out, you can also add some nice smelling essential oil to your wax.

7. Painted Wood Coasters 

Your dad might have fancier coasters in the house, but ones made by you with love will take precedence, trust us! You just need to source a couple of wooden pieces from the scrap material at a furniture store near you, or you could separate an existing object in your house like a wooden crate you have lying around from the last you moved places. Some sketch pens, and a nice message, and your DIY Father's Day gift is ready!

8. Scrabble Key Chain 

So every time he leaves the house, he has a reminder of how much he's adored on him, at all times. This one is super easy to create, and all you need is an old leather key chain, and some scrabble letters. If dad is too simple, you can opt for something more meaningful, or a reminder of a personal joke between the two of you! Some superglue later, your DIY Father's Day keychain will be ready.

9. A Beer Bouquet 

A couple of pints of beer, and some kite paper folding skills (ok fine, and a LOT of Youtube tutorials) are the things you need to create this DIY Father's Day gift. It doesn't have to be as fancy as the one in the picture, but cut out some cute flowers and leaves out of kite paper, and ruffle some up to create a bush in a basket that you can stuff a few cold ones in.

10. Wooden Tie Holder 

Super, super easy. Just get a wooden plank and a hammer and you will, ahem, NAIL this Father's Day gift! I'm sorry.
