Father’s Day is literally around corner, but don’t worry you still have time to sort something out. In my opinion, Homemade Father’s Day Cards and Gifts are the best. They have an extra special factor that you simply can not buy from the shop. So in the run up to Father’s Day I thought I would share with you a round up of some simple ideas for Homemade Father’s Day Cards and Gifts from my fellow bloggers.
Homemade Father’s Day Card Ideas
Even if your not a gift person, most will get a Father’s Day card. A homemade Father’s Day card is always so special, not just because of the extra thought that has gone into it, but also because it serves as a permanent memento of your kid’s childhood. Some of my most treasured possessions are cards made for me by the children, in all their imperfect perfectness.
Cards made with children’s hand or foot prints are particular good. Not only are they a thoughtful memento, but they also capture a moment in time. Never again will your child’s feet or hands be that tiny. You can incorporate hand and foot prints into lots of different designs.
So simple, but looks really effective!
Homemade Father’s Day Gifts
An alternative picture idea is this Framed Personalised Print by The Diary of a Frugal Family which you customise with different colours and your own words using their FREE poster maker, I think I may have to give this a go!
If pictures aren’t his thing, what about books? I love the idea of producing a little story or book about Daddy, made even more special if it is written and illustarted by the children. This idea has been taken one step further over at The Money Whisperer, where not only did the children create their homemade story book, but they replaced some of the words with well known chocolate bars and little gifts. Such an awesome idea!
If all that hasn’t given you enough ideas, then you can always try this really Simple Homemade Father’s Day Gift that we did last year, I’ve even included FREE printables to make it even simpler for you.
Whatever you decide to make and give, I’m sure they will be treasured forever. I wish all the Daddy’s out there a very happy Father’s Day.
