For Father's Day this year, try making something homemade for Dad instead of just buying a gift. The point of Father's Day is to remind those important men in our lives how thankful we are for them, and one of the most meaningful ways to do that is to create something unique and priceless. Don't parents constantly tell us that the best gifts are those that come from the heart? Here are a few ideas to fuel your creativity, regardless of your age and ability.
You can't go wrong with making Dad something delicious and instantly satisfying. What's his favorite sweet, treat, or meal? If you live far away and can't be with him on June 19th, bake his favorite cookies, bread, or package up a great mailable spread. Getting something in the mail shows you went those few extra steps to remind him how special he is to you.
Scrapbook or Picture Frame
Who prints off pictures anymore? Find some recent and old favorites and remind Dad of all the memories you share. Either put the photos in a scrapbook or make a picture frame.
Get a stack of bright sticky notes or cut out shapes from construction paper. While Dad is sleeping or at work, post handwritten notes around the house reminding him all the reasons you love him.
Letter or Handmade Card
The best gift you can give is your words. Sit down and remember all the reasons you're grateful for this man, and then tell him. It doesn't have to be fancy but make sure you take the time to print it off your computer and give it to him, or put it in an envelope and mail it. If you're feeling really creative, bust out those craft supplies and make a card. Writing something he can't read in his email inbox makes it that much more meaningful.
