You can make your father’s day memorable with a gift that he will treasure for a lifetime! It’s nearly that time of year again where we celebrate all of the dads in our lives, so to get the ball rolling I got my husband to put together a list of 20 awesome handmade Father’s Day gift ideas he will actually want!
TV, Film & Music
Peter is a Belfast based illustrator and has created movie posters and brochures for my fave little cinema, the QFT!
They quite often end up in my art journals!
There are loads to choose from and I’m sure there’ll be something in his store from your dad’s favourite film.
Dads love building stuff, right? I got one of these for my dad and he flipping loved it!
Not only did he have something to build but he had a guitar at the end of it too.
I’ve also seen Mister Heart Handmade coveting it anytime I’m home, if it ever goes missing I’ll know where to look first.
Twin Peaks might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this is a damn fine mug for coffee… anyone?
Confession time… I couldn’t get into Game of Thrones.
Even still I can appreciate this cushion, which is a map of *Mister Heart Handmade whispers* Westeros.
If Game of Thrones isn’t up your dad’s street, there are some other designs worth checking out in this brilliant little shop.
I’m pretty sure that if your dad doesn’t like David Bowie he is breaking the law.
I’ve meet quite a few dads and they nearly all have Mr. Bowie in common.
This one is a little niche, but fab none the less.
I love the design of this little enamel pin and I have it on good authority that this is a pretty iconic guitar pedal.
Do you have a sci-fi fan for a dad? I do.
How cool is this handmade phone stand?
Make sure that your dad always has a starting point when he loses his phone.
Does anyone know what this is? Really, what is it?
I remember cassettes *cries* I even found some of my old tapes recently.
I love these so much!
I love this copper stand and I’m sure your pops will too!
Drinks and accessories
Everyone loves a new keyring, this one looks super high-tech!
Do you struggle to get your dad to use coasters?
If you get him a set that he can build and take apart he’ll be using them in no time.
Excellent stoneware bottle so that your dad can personalise his favourite tipple.
Bits & bobs
Perfect for the snuggley Papa Bear in your life.
If your Papa Bear is a big bear then he might need some help to keep his beard neat and tidy, that’s where this personalised dog tag beard comb comes in.
I’m head over heals in love with cacti at the moment and there’s nothing more satisfying than growing plants from seed.
If your dad has too much money then this hammered copper money clip can help keep his cash organised.
Everyone knows that dads are just big little boys, help him relive his childhood with this DIY crossbow kit.
Make sure that you warn your mum to stay out of his way for a few days.
After some extensive research I have come to the conclusion that dads love getting socks as presents.
Well… at least these are super flashy.
The one thing that is more satisfying that growing something from seed is growing something from seed that you can then eat…
Even if it is a mushroom.
I’m sure that there will have been at least one handmade Father’s Day gift idea that your dad will want on my list.
If my 20 handmade Father’s Day gift ideas haven’t inspired you Father’s Day shopping list then you might want to have a look at this Esty Editors’ Pick for some extra ideas!
I would love to know if your dad would like any of my gift ideas as much as my dad would.
I’d be thrilled if you’d like to connect with me!
