DIY Fathers Day Gift Ideas to Make Him Feel Special

Celebrated every third Sunday of June, Father's Day is a great opportunity for children, grandchildren, and spouses to thank fathers (and grandfathers, for that matter) for their sacrifices and selfless acts of love. Dads may rarely receive gifts, and that's why gift-giving on Father's Day is a stupendous way to make them feel extra special even just for 24 hours.


You may think about buying him gifts that you're certain he'll love. However, if you're considering giving him a present with a personalized touch, then a homemade gift is doubtless best for this particular purpose. In this article, we'll give you a few of the best DIY Fathers' Day gift ideas that your dad will surely adore and be enormously thankful for.



Homemade Gifts to Gift Dad this Father's Day 2023

Put a wide smile on your father's face (or tears of joy!) by giving him one of these DIY Father's Day gifts. From a deceptively simple family picture mug to a precious scrapbook with Dad's best photos with the rest of the family, here's our quick list of thoughtful and unique Father's Day gifts.



1. Family Picture Mug

Does your dad love to routinely start his day with a warm cup of coffee? If so, then making a family-picture mug will wistfully remind him of what keeps him driven to work every day to provide for the whole family. A custom photo mug with a collage of his family's picture is certainly something that makes for a great gift. For sure, he will use this custom mug you made every day, because it's made by you. It may be too simple and cheap, but it's one of the best homemade Father's Day gifts that you can give as it's something he can use practically every day.



2. Personalized Phone Case

Dads use their phones a lot to check on the kids and their spouse when they're out for work. They also use it to pass the time when there's nothing else to do. When he's feeling a little dispirited, he can just flip his phone and see the phone case with your family picture that you specially made. Don't underestimate simple gifts, because for fathers nothing is really simple if the DIY gift is made with love by none other than his loved ones.



3. Reasons-Why-I-Love-My-Dad Mason Jar

Dads can be secretly soft. That is to say, they are known to hide their true feelings to look tougher on the outside. But you can witness their most vulnerable state with a thoughtful gift such as a mason jar filled with innumerable reasons why you love them. Make him read it aloud and see how he slowly goes from smiling to teary-eyed out of pure, genuine joy. Or maybe he'll stay composed and just smile the whole time. But whatever you wrote on the papers you filled the mason jar with, it should be all the good reasons why your dad is someone you consider the best in the world.



4. DIY Apron for Grill-Loving Dad

If your dad is always assigned to grill barbecue every holiday or just about any occasion you celebrate, a customized apron for him is something he'll surely be pleasantly surprised to be gifted with. It will remind him of how he is remembered for the things he loves to do. You can print out something like "Grilling Master" on the custom apron, with your dad's badass picture printed below the lettering.



5. Customized Father's Day Card

If there are Christmas and Valentine's Day cards, there must be ones for Mother's and Father's Day too. And it shouldn't be just a generic greeting card that you can purchase in-store or online. Personalize the card by printing out a picture of him and the entire family. Then put a greeting along the lines of, "Happy Father's Day, Papa! From Jacob and Mommy." This is a surefire way to transform your dad's face from exhausted into a wide, authentic grin! After that, treat Dad to a famous restaurant near Lumina Homes and have him order all his favorite meals!



6. Scrapbook with Dad's Best Photos

If you want to put in effort, then creating a scrapbook is one thoughtful way to do it as one of the most effortful DIY gifts this Father's Day. Collect all your dad's handsome and candid photos, as well as pictures you took unbeknownst to him. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without the entire family's group pictures, including the popular tourist spots you went to, the random photos you took at home, and the family reunions you attended. Design your scrapbook with recyclable materials such as old papers from school, fabric from clothes you don't use anymore, old magazines, and your kid's art materials. You can also download a free printable online to print out at home to make your gift idea even more beautifully crafted.
