Father’s Day is upon us. It is that time of year when we celebrate those amazing men in our lives. If you are anything like me or if your dad is anything like mine, Father’s Day can kind of put you into panic mode. My dad is impossible to shop for. Now, I could get my dad a package of crew socks and he would be happy- genuinely happy. He is a practical guy and he doesn’t have a lot of excess in his life, which I find very admirable and it is one of the many ways in which I wish I were more like him, BUT it also makes gift giving really hard. My husband is the same way. Anyway, I find myself in this epic battle every year to find the perfect gift for the two most important “dad” figures in my life. Something that screams practicality while also having a sense of personalization that says, “this was hand picked for you” or even better, “this was hand made for you”. The first place I go to brainstorm such a brilliant gift idea is Pinterest, obviously! I actually found some pretty awesome ideas on my hunt this year and I thought I should share my plunder. So, if you are in fact like me and you have a dad or a husband (baby daddy) like mine, hopefully this will give you a jump start in the right direction! Here are the ten BEST Father’s Day ideas I found on Pinterest:
1. Father’s Day Printable Book from Tiny Me.
For the Dad who has littles, this is a great gift idea that allows little to no work on your end besides printing- the work has already been done for you! The best part is that it includes prompts that allow for custom notes and drawings from all of his munchkins. A gift to be treasured for years to come!
2. Play Ball Mason Jar Game Tickets from Mad in Crafts
For all of those baseball fans, this is the cutest idea ever! What a creative way to package tickets to the “ball” game. .. get it? I thought it was pretty cute!
3. Hand Print Shirts from A Spotted Pony.
This is a such a sweet idea for dad’s and granddad’s. This is the perfect shirt to be worn around the house or on chore day! A great reminder of the tiny hands that he holds close to his heart… awe.
