Homemade Father's Day Gift Ideas

It's Father's Day and we want to make it extra special this year by making our own gifts all from the heart. The one day a year we make sure Dad definitely knows how much we love him and appreciate all he does for us throughout the year. 

Father's Day gift ideas - Make your own BBQ beef & lamb spice rub

Making your own BBQ spice rubs and marinades are the perfect way to season your meats without any added nasties often found in store bought seasoning packs. Pop your finished mix into a recycles jam or mason jar, make a label and pop a ribbon on for a special homemade Father's Day gift. 

Father's Day Gift Ideas - Summer seed balls

These seed bombs are a fabulous gift for Dad to help him to get his garden blooming in time for summer. 

Outdoor Citronella Mandles

Follow our easy candle recipe to make dad his very own Citronella candle to keep away all those mozzies when summer finally graces us. When the recipe calls for you to add your scent, use citronella essential oil and double the recipe for more mozzie zapping power.

Homemade shaving cream & beard oil

Make dad his own natural shaving cream or bead oil if he is holding on to that lockdown facial hair. These delicious homemade potions will help to moisturise his face and help make him shine on Father's Day. 


Homemade wood slice art set coasters

Make a set of colourful pencil end coasters for Dad and his favourite drink. You can purchase raw wood slices from Amazon and with a permanent marker or pencil, colour in a round circle in the centre so it resembles the end of a pencil. Continue until you have completed a set of six in all different colours. You can go over the colour section with clear nail polish to seal in the marker. If you don't want to use nail polish, probably best to stick to colour pencils. 

Bake and craft with Dad at home

It might be Dad's day but most children just really want is to spend the day with their superhero. Spend the day baking and decorating some treats for you to both enjoy together. Don't forget to drop in the secret ingredient, a big dose of laughter!
