Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 17th!) so we thought we would share some great ideas for homemade gifts for dad. Each idea can be made with a few simple supplies, several pieces of ribbon, and of course, lots of love. Dad will love these gifts!
Father’s Day Cookies:
This is a great idea for kids, and a gift that Dad will especially appreciate. Follow these simple instructions below to create ribbon-wrapped cookies. All you need is cupcake wrappers, a piece of cellophane wrap, ribbon, and cookie ingredients. A nice touch would be to add a personalized note to the wrapped cookies, or you can include a separate card. Bake Dad’s favorite cookies, or mix and match batches! After cookies have cooled, layer cookies in cupcake wrapper. Take tissue and tie with a satin or grosgrain ribbon. Attach note, and you have a great gift for the number one dad!
Handmade Father’s Day Cards:
Our favorite types of cards are made with ribbon, because there are so many creative possibilities as well as the opportunity to add your own personal touch. Homemade cards are easy to make, all you need is decorative card stock, ribbon, scissors, glue or double-sided tape, and a Father’s Day sentiment for the front of the card. Mix and match decorative cardstock, creating a layered design for the card front. Use ribbon to tie together the design. We recommend using sturdy double-sided photo tape to secure all the elements on your card, as glue can create unsightly visible lines. Double-sided tape ensures that all pieces of your card lay smooth, creating the ultimate sentiment for Dad. For ribbon recommendations, we advise using satin ribbon or grosgrain ribbon.
Simple to make, these Father’s day gifts come right from the heart. Dad is guaranteed to appreciate a custom-made card, or his favorite batch of cookies. Ribbon adds a simple, but elegant touch to these thoughtful gifts. Happy gift giving!
