This year, I decided to start looking for ideas ahead of time – and I found some really cute things that I would like to share. Some of these take a little bit more work than others, but they are all super cute ideas!
#1 – Super cute “DAD” framed photo – great for all ages
Here is a great idea with this photo session – would only take a few minutes to take the actual photos – For frugality purposes, you could either cut out the letters with Bristol board from the dollar store, or use form cut outs from a floor mat! The author suggests purchasing paper mache letters and painting them – lots of options!
Instead of buying Dad another tie to add to his collection of 100, here is a great idea as to how to recycle the ties from the last 10 years that he might rarely be wearing! If dad is using all his ties, you could easily hit up a second-hand store and pick up some used ties for cheap.
Did Dad get a new e-reader or Ipad for Christmas? Here is a great idea for a DIY tablet, Ipad, or e-reader cover. The idea is great, and you can recycle some old books too! Note: You do need some Sugru to make this project happen!
Here is an original idea on making handmade garden stones from polymer. I’m sure this could be replicated with a homemade playdough or cooking clay – but using stamps for the letters is brilliant!
Looking for a glue-less, paint-less idea? Try out this idea, which is great for those less-than-crafty folks! Make a little goodie bag filled with “pop” items – candy pop, ring pop, bottle of pop, popcorn, etc. Will cost a little more, but definitely a last-minute option!
This will take a little bit more time to prepare, but how awesome would homemade aftershave be? Try out this awesome step-by-step recipe to cook up this special gift for dad!
Here is another easy idea for those who may be artistically challenged. Why not create a super cute, and super yummy treat? Make sure to leave some candy for the jar!
This one will take a little bit of prep, especially to get all of your pictures organized, but it will be well worth it, and your little one can help! Using just a trifold display board and photos, you can create a card that not only stands on its own, but one that Dad will not soon forget!
