{DiY} Easy Father’s Day Gifts

Father’s Day is extra special around here…not only do we celebrate and shower Daddy with love…but every so often, it also marks our wedding anniversary. Seventeen years ago, on Father’s Day, I said ‘I Do’ to my best friend and funniest guy I know. (See our wedding photos and my grandmother’s custom dress that I wore here and here, and read how we met here.) This year, our anniversary happens to fall on Father’s Day again, so Mr. SP will be getting all the love. #babydaddy

I rounded up a few projects in case you or your kids like to make your own gifts.

Okay, so this vase might be a little girly for dad, but I couldn’t resist throwing it in since it follows the mustache theme.

{DIY Jonathan Adler Inspired Vase}

You could always show dad the love through his belly with these sweet treats.
And if you prefer gifts of the purchased type, here are a few fun ideas all under $50.

Click each item for details.

Or maybe you’re both the mama and the daddy, in which case, you should treat yourself to this sweet necklace, or the snuggliest wrap ever. Happy hump day, lovebugs!

  2. We've been married for 17 years as well and I can't get him any mustache items because it took me forever to get him to shave his stupid mustache. I hated that thing LOL. I even wrote a blog post about it 😉 The kids just have to make him cute artwork instead

    I love all these ideas except the mustache items. I just don't get the mustache as a decoration. Can someone please explain this to me?

  15. Thanks for getting Chris to weigh in on Father's Day gifts. It's always nice to actually have opinion on these kind of things.

  16. Pretty cool.Now and again,a store-purchased gift simply doesn't send the perfect message for Father's Day.As opposed to purchasing something from the store,crafty moms and children can make their own particular Father's Day gifts comfortable.Dad will love getting a novel gift that was made with adoration by his family.Thank you so much.

  17. Every few years, our anniversary falls on Father's Day as well… thirteen years for us this year! FYI – I'm taking a studying break and catching up on the last couple of months of your posts!
