8 DIY Gift Ideas for the Dad Who Has Everything

We get it — dads can be extremely difficult to shop for, especially on Father’s Day because it always seems like they have everything they need.

But rather than scrambling to purchase something as special as your dad, you should consider making him something instead.

But we’re not talking the about macaroni noodle crafts you made your dad back in the first grade. We’re talking about homemade gifts that your pops will be proud to show off.

Luckily we’re here to help, which is why we’ve rounded up the best DIY Father’s Day gifts. All you need to do is make a quick trip to the hardware and arts and craft store and you’ll instantly become his favourite kid.
