Father's Day Gifts

Show Dad your appreciation with our fun Father's Day gift ideas, including Dad-focused artwork, gifts for his office, and photo-theme crafts. These Father's Day gifts are an easy way to say "I love you, Dad."


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Children Silhouettes

      For sweet, thoughtful Father's Day artwork, create a set of framed silhouettes of your children. Take a side profile photo of each child and print out. Trace onto heavy white cardstock and cut out. Back each cutout with a dark piece of cardstock; set in crisp black frames for a sophisticated gift.

    • Desktop Garden

      Give Dad a bit of green on Father's Day with a one-of-a-kind moss garden, perfect for a low-maintenance container planting. To assemble a moss dish garden, add filler to a container, using soil for the top inch. Use different types of moss; a bonsai tree; and accents, such as twigs, stones, or bark to add interest to the scene. When your dish garden is complete, water thoroughly and press the mosses down to make good contact with one another. Water deeply every week for two months, misting between waterings, until the moss
 is established. No fertilizer is needed; place the garden in indirect sunlight inside, or a cool, shady area outside.

    • Dad’s Favorite Dinner

      Who doesn't love pizza night—at home—especially for Father's Day? Adorn a white pizza box (ask a local restaurant for an extra) and fill with the prebaked crust and toppings. Print the free label and glue to the box.

    • String-and-Nails Artwork

      Dad will welcome this cheery artwork greeting. Print out a phrase, such as "Hello!" in a block font from your computer. Play with font size until you like the look (our letters are approximately 3 inches tall). Trim the block letters and arrange them on a board; cut the board to fit the phrase. Tap nails into place around the letters and remove the paper patterns. Wrap string around the outlines of the letters first, then fill in the letters with crisscross designs.

    • Plant-Lover’s Centerpiece

      Low-maintenance succulents offer a restrained accent to this ever-so-easy Father’s Day gift. Learn how to make the centerpiece.

    • S’mores To-Go Kit

      Sure, brunch is a go-to for time with Dad on Father's Day, but a night of s'mores equals an extra special family summertime treat. Gather a blanket and a few supplies, including simple crafts boxes lined with parchment and filled with with graham crackers, marshmallows (check your local candy store for homemade options), long bamboo skewers, and chocolate bars, as well as individual chafing gel containers set in a bed of decorative rocks. No Father's Day outing planned? Take your s'mores to the back deck for an at-home holiday celebration.

    • Kids Words Wall Art

      Framed handwriting is a fun way to remember a year in a child's life. Have your child write a favorite poem or a note to Dad on a fabric scrap that's cut to fit a basic frame (skip the expensive frame molding; a simple glass-fronted frame with side clips makes the writing the star). It's OK if some of the words go outside of the area; it just adds to the just-for-Dad appeal.

    • Beverage Labels

      Give Dad this quick, easy Father’s Day gift: a bucket of favorite beverages (and an afternoon relaxing outside to enjoy them). To dress up standard bottles, tape old or new photographs or postcards over the bottle labels. Better yet, have children draw images or write notes to Dad sharing special sentiments.

    • Father’s Day Picnic Supplies

      A prepacked picnic makes a Father's Day outing that much easier. Dress up picnic tins with spray paint; let dry. Wrap sandwiches in parchment paper, include bamboo utensils and a drink, and include a tin filled with a sweet treat.

      Patterned Pencil Holder Gift

      Help Dad keep his pencils within reach at work with this easy Father's Day DIY: a pencil holder gift. Start with a block of 4x4-inch wood, and sand it to smooth the rough edges. Once sanded, paint the top any color you like. Cut the bottom of the block at an angle to tilt the base, then measure the sides of the block to determine the length of decorative paper needed to cover them. Soak the paper in water to make it pliable, then use a thin layer of watered-down decoupage medium to evenly attach the paper to the sides of the block. Line up the paper with the block's painted top; if the paper is too long at the bottom, neatly wrap it around the base. Seal the paper with a top coat of decoupage medium. On the top of the block, measure and mark pencil holes in an evenly spaced pattern; drill holes into the top at a 90-degree angle using a 1/2-inch bit.

      Father’s Day Salt Rub

      Father's Day is always a good time to fire up the grill. For dads who love their outdoor barbecue time, give a handmade or purchased herb salt rub. Fill recycled or purchased glass bottles with the rub, hot-glue twine to the lid in a circular pattern, and print a label and instructions on a strip of burlap. Secure the label to the bottle with twine.
