Creative Gifts for Father’s Day

Don’t disappoint Dad with another necktie this Father’s Day. Instead, consider giving him a one-of-a-kind gift.Try your hand at a DIY gift or purchase a present that creates an experience for the whole family to enjoy. Here are some inexpensive gift ideas that will put a smile on any dad’s face:

  • A personalized apron. Dads who love to cook or grill can use this practical gift throughout the summer during barbeques and cookouts. Decorate a canvas apron with paint or fabric—save on supplies with Joann Fabric coupons. Have the kids help and let their imaginations run wild.
  • A popsicle stick photo frame. This is an easy and fun gift for younger children to make. With the warm weather quickly approaching, cool down with a few popsicles and use the sticks to create the frame, or pick up a pack of popsicle sticks from your local craft or dollar store. Glue the ends of the popsicle sticks together and decorate with paint, buttons, sequins, colored cotton balls—the list is endless. Get great deals on photo prints at Shutterfly or Snapfish and insert a special picture of the family in the frame so Dad can display it on his desk or his nightstand.
  • Tickets to his favorite concert or sports game. Buy tickets from TicketsNow and enjoy a night out with the whole family.  To make the gift even more special, create a ticket collage to package your gift and memorialize this and all future events.
  • A homemade coupon book. This is a great gift for older children to put together. Give Dad redeemable coupons for tasks like mowing the lawn, washing the car or homemade breakfast. Design your own coupon book or print out these coupon templates.
