Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th, and what, you haven’t picked up anything for dad yet? No worries. This post is for the procrastinators among us… and no, we aren’t naming names, don’t worry! If you’re still thinking of a little something special for dad, we’ve got some easy, last-minute ideas for you. At the end of the day, though, love is all you need. Here’s to you, pops!
What a thoughtful, fun (and affordable!) idea from Oh Happy Day that involves the whole family. Number the back of envelopes according to how many people are in your family. Then, have each family member write down (or draw a picture!) of something special that they want to do with or for dad. Tape them on the wall and have him open each one throughout the day. Whether that’s bringing him breakfast in bed or a beer in the afternoon, or just sharing a special message about why he’s the best, dad is sure to love discovering what’s inside each envelope.
Rosemary Mint Shaving Cream
A quick trip to the health & wellness store, and you’ll be in business with this smooth & sweet-smelling gift! Food for My Family has created an soothing DIY project that you can easily make with your kids. With a dab of this and a dab of that (shea butter and coconut oil, in this case), and a few other sweet-smelling oils, you’ll have daddy’s skin looking smooth and smelling sweet! Perfect for kisses from his little ones.
Dad’s Favorite Things Goody Basket
M is for Mama has probably the easiest crowd pleaser gift for Father’s Day. A gift basket full of daddy’s favorite things! Whether it’s a baseball cap from his favorite sports team, a BBQ sauce or candy that he loves, a book from his favorite author… the list goes on. This is a fun gift that you can put together easily, and sure to be a favorite!
“I Love You This Much” card
This easy children’s craft from A Day In My Life is one of the sweetest we’ve seen. Materials can likely be found around the house: paper, popsicle sticks and a sharpie (she uses beautiful letter stamps or stickers, but we think a Sharpie pen could work just as well – and won’t involve a trip to the craft store!). Before you know it, an interactive card for dad will be ready to go!
A “Candy Gram” Message
Does dad have a sweet tooth? If so, we’ve got the perfect present from Bits of Everything for him! We simply love this sugar-tastic card and it’s message for dad. There’s only one question, though… will he share any of the candy?
Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing fathers out there!
