I think we can all agree, sometimes dads are tough to shop for. I’ve always found the best way to find gifts for the guys in my life is to pinpoint an interest and work backward from there. If he’s a great cook, an apron or some customized utensils would be perfect. Maybe he’s into cars, and would welcome a unique key chain. A movie lover might appreciate a hand-painted popcorn bowl.
The point is, Dad likes something, which means there’s a gift that’s perfect for him. There are so many great handmade artists out there, making exactly what you’re looking for. Be the kid that puts in the thought and effort into finding it, and make it even harder for Dad to not have a favorite. Here’s a list of handmade gifts for Dad for Father’s Day.
This fun, retro print would be perfect for a guy who appreciates air travel, or the one who has a soft spot for nostalgia.
Granted, this would be a big statement gift, but imagine the place of honor this beauty would have in the man cave.
Did your dad find a little four-legged buddy to shower his attention on when you moved out? Show your acceptance of your new canine brother with this sweet magnet.
Here’s a gift to help ease Dad’s pain at having to wear those reading glasses. Especially if he’s the kind of guy who loves his books.
I don’t know about the rest of the country, but beer growlers are HUGE here in Oregon. When your dad takes his to the local shop to have it filled, everyone else will be asking “Where did you get that carrier?”
Make sure Dad is thinking about you when he’s out there trying to land the big one.
If your dad is into photography, he might appreciate an easier way to carry his camera. Found in my own shop here on aftcra.
You know you love it when dad picks up that guitar to play. Make sure he knows it.
An outdoorsy dad would appreciate this personalized gift.
This is the perfect gift for any dad. Slip a gift card inside to make it even better – bonus points if it’s redeemable for lunch with you.
About aftcra’s Guest Blogger, Staci of CraftyStaci:
I’ve been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember. If there’s a technique I haven’t tried, it’s probably on my wish list. At my blog, Crafty Staci, I share beginner-friendly craft and sewing tutorials, simple recipes, links to fun things I find elsewhere and my successful, and sometimes not-so-successful, attempts at expressing my own creativity. I find that people who haven’t tried it before are occasionally hesitant to take that first step into making things. I try to guide and inspire them to jump in and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way. I hope to encourage others to create and keep handmade alive and well.
