10 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts You Can Make

Holy moly, Father’s Day is this weekend! Do you need a gift that you can whip up in a hurry? Check out these last-minute Father’s Day gift ideas.

Did Father’s Day creep up on you? When time is short, heading out to the big box store for a gift might be tempting, but store-bought gifts can be a little bit impersonal, and they’re often not so great from an ethical point of view. It can be very difficult to tell if your lovingly-chosen Father’s Day gift was made in a sweatshop. With a little bit of DIY skill, though, you can opt out of that option and make Dad a unique gift that he will love!

Handmade gifts can take a long time to create, but not all craft projects need a whole weekend to complete. With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, you probably don’t have a whole day to devote to crafting, but you can make the gifts by just dedicating a few evening hours this week.

Sweet advice. Another great option I love is Blind Surprise - - it's great because you basically sign up with the recipient's interests and they send out a surprise gift every month that fits. Really awesome and fun.

Thanks for the great idea! I also like to at least once a year take a really cute or weird picture of my girls and they add art on a piece of paper and we get it laminated for a bookmarker-we are all readers! Remember to date it as it becomes quite an heirloom!
