If you are not good with DIYs or lack time, you can always seek the help of experts. There are many options available online where you can get customized coasters at an affordable rate. So, research well before making the final call.

Does your dad often talk about his favorite shows, songs, or movies he loved watching as a child? If so, then it’s time to give your dad his childhood days again. Download all his favorite shows, videos, etc., on a pen drive and plug it into his television to watch whenever he wants. We are sure they will enjoy and love your DIY Father’s Day gift. The shows might be available on the OTT platforms, but this gesture will make their viewing experience hassle-free.

4. Create an album

No matter how digital things get, nothing is better than flipping photo albums and discussing old pictures with the family. So, this Father’s Day, give your dad a photo album full of his childhood pictures or photos from his school and college days. You can always ask for pictures from your grandparents, your father’s siblings, and childhood friends who stood the test of time. This DIY gift will make your dad emotional and nostalgic on Father’s Day. They will love browsing the pictures and telling you what happened behind the scenes.

5. Accessories for dads who love the kitchen

If your dad loves to cook, a handmade apron, utensil holder, napkin holder, cookbook holder, etc., will be the perfect DIY gift for him on Father’s Day. You can make an apron from any fabric (try to pick a fabric comfortable to wear in the kitchen), while other things can be made from ceramic, clay, or reusable items like glass jars, tin cans, etc.

You can also give your dad keychains, hand-painted t-shirts, DIY laptop covers, etc. The gift ideas are endless if you are ready to get creative.
