With Father’s Day around the corner (June 21st), it’s time to get snapping with ideas for what to give your husband or dad that will make him grin from ear to ear.
Since this frugal gal is into making rather than buying, here are some awesome ideas that will surely deliver a bit of happiness.
For the Man Cave
One of the most common items a Man Cave has is a refrigerator. Not everyone can afford to start with a snazzy new one. If your dad/husband’s Man Cave is lacking some cool creativity, here’s a few suggestions:
If his fridge looks like this:
Try covering it with chalk paint so he can keep a scoreboard for games, write tidbits of manly wisdom, etc.
You can even paint it in the colors of his favorite team, movie theme, product theme (such a Harley Davidson painted fridge), and more.
If you’re really talented with tools you can even add a few keg taps with instructions from the Kegerator Guide.
For the Office
Take a plastic trash can and marker and make a R2D2! Melissa Nosal is worth checking out on her site of illustration and Graphic Design. She used marker for her creation that is still holding up after a year!
Another gift that uses Sharpies (permanent markers), but is one that children would enjoy making is a decorated mug. Directions, images, and ideas can be found on DIY All in One and From Gardeners 2 Bergers.
I hope some of these ideas will get you motivated and I’d love to see the creations that you’ve made for Father’s Day. So send them in to let us all appreciate your hard work. Thanks and to all the father’s around the world: Happy Father’s Day!
