If your dad has everything, try something unique and handmade. Here are 40 DIY Father’s Day gifts he’ll love to receive, and you’ll love to make!
My dad’s kind of a strange dude – and I say that in the nicest way possible. You never know what he is going to like if you buy him a present, so the best bet is to make him something.
In fact, he’s become a bracelet wearer in the last few years . . . and his main purchases of said bracelets come from Etsy! So yep, even my old ex-hippie dad is on Etsy these days and appreciates a good handmade item.
Having said that, if you have a problem figuring out what to get Pops, I highly recommend investigating some DIY Father’s Day gifts. You can personalize and make it perfect for your own father.
If you need some unique ideas, I’ve pulled together a collection. Just scroll down to see them. Which one is your favorite?
