Top DIY Gifts for Dad This Father’s Day

When it comes to dad, he can be hard to shop for. For Father’s Day this year, you want to show him you care and make him feel special. You also don’t want to break the bank or buy him something he won’t use or appreciate. These are some of the best DIY gifts you can get the whole family to help create and make this Father’s Day a memorable one.

Beer Bouquet: Dads generally are not showered with roses for Father’s Day, but a bouquet of beer might be just the ticket for him. Grab a six pack of his favorite brew and dress it up with hand-crafted flowers. If dad isn’t into beer, you can always switch it out with his favorite bottled soda or fun root beer flavors.

Dad’s Stache Jar: Does dad need a private stash of his favorite treats? You can easily design jar (many options from the dollar store) and fill it with his favorite snack. And no, he doesn’t actually need a stache for this jar.

Daddy’s Car Wash Kit: A fun way to create a gift basket, you and the kids can put together a car wash kit just for dad. The kids can design the label and put stickers on the bucket, while you find all the great car washing necessities to go inside.

Grill Set Holder: If your dad enjoys being king of the grill, then he needs the perfect place for his grilling tools. You can create and design his very own grill set holder with some knobs, wood and stain to finish this very crafty gift.

Mason Jar Lid Coaster: What Father’s Day DIY list isn’t complete without some mason jar action? All you need are the lids to create his very own, rustic coaster set.

Tool Storage Crate: You can custom design a tool box just for dad. If his tools are getting a little out of hand, you can make your very own box just for him. A little painting, staining and nailing in the letters will give him a super duper box of tools.

Daddy Swag Bag: Essentially this is a gift basket, but for dad, and in the form of a bag. All you need to do is grab a few of dad’s favorites for his swag bag. Ideas include: set of golf balls, new flavors of beer, flavored coffee, grooming kit, framed family picture, BBQ sauce, salsa, cologne sample, candy, popcorn, nuts, socks, tie….you get the picture.

Pop Box Set: Combining your DIY skills with pop bottles and candy will make this gift a hit! Simply get a 6 pack of empty drink bottles and fill with his favorite candy or snacks. There are tons of ways to decorate the bottles and the carrier to custom tailor it just for dad.
