Five Things to Make Dad for Father’s Day


Father’s Day is sure creeping up fast, eh? If you haven’t gotten Dad a gift yet, I’ve got five DIY gifts (and partially DIY’d gifts!) to cover you! Dad will sure be feeling special after opening one of these, though you may not be able to pull him out of his man cave for awhile…

1. DIY Spice Rub: Dads love to grill, so gifting him a homemade spice rub is perfect for all the summer BBQs in his future. Plus, you get to enjoy all the delicious benefits too!

2. DIY Root Beer Sampler: This is such a fantastic idea! Gather up a bunch of root beers, old fashioned sodas or beers from around the globe and create a sampler pack for Dad. Get really creative and make him a chart with a little blurb about each one. It’s like a box of chocolates, but for Dad!

3. Father’s Day Gift Printable Gift Labels: Father’s Day is only a few days away, so if you don’t have time to make a gift, you can jazz up one you’ve bought with these free printables! Socks, beer and wine are a lot more fun when they look this good!

4. DIY Cement Coasters: Give Dad something for his man cave! You don’t get more manly then cement coasters, eh? The perfect spot for a cold beer.

    by scrub, i meant rub (obviously).

    Great ideas, Kelly! I especially love the spice rub, root beer, and fancy labels for socks! The socks reminded me of how my dad would always ask for boring stuff like socks and deodorant for Christmas and Father’s Day… ha ha. Too bad I didn’t make fancy labels for his socks back then 😉 He would probably get a kick out of it if I did that for Father’s Day this year!
