As I believe we've discussed in a previous post, I give my friends and family handmade (by me) gifts for every occasion, and Father's Day is no exception. But this year, so far I'm feeling a little, shall we say, uninspired. I feel like I've done everything to death already. So, to get my creative juices flowing, I've been poking around (where else?!) on Etsy and have found some fantastic ideas. And so, should you be planning to go the handmade route too, but planning to let someone else's hands do the making, I present for you the following Father's Day finds:
Ingenious handmade pens abound on Etsy, but this inlaid jigsaw puzzle piece pen takes the cake for me. Made by RandomStuff.This 8" x 10" print of a vintage Corvette engine by ANJacobsen will make somebody's dad a very happy man this Father's Day. Possibly not the most practical gift, but guaranteed to get a laugh at family dinner, this bottle of "DAdvil" from nycole is a fun gift for someone who's got it all.
Another classic, but this time with an artsy twist, these cufflinks from dlkdesigns are sure to please.
There ya go. Got some good ideas now? Better get to shopping! And, of course, you're going to need a card. I'm happy to announce that my Father's Day cards are ready to go. Here's a sampling of what I've got in my shop for your favorite patriarch.
Let's hear it for Dad!
