Last minute Father’s Day gift ideas

Father’s Day is just around the corner! Need some last minute gift inspiration?

I curated these fun ideas from around the web onto Pinterest for anyone like me who is a teensy bit behind on gift plans this year. Everything is handmade — anything from photos, practical gifts or food (what man doesn’t love a delicioso prezzie?)! Enjoy!

The photo above is an adorable free printable vintage label – place on anything from soap to a jar homemade brown sugar like this from The Burlap Bag (and Josiah has an epic post coming up tomorrow! don’t miss it!) and it becomes a little bit more special.


Totally love this idea – create adorable photo gifts that can easily (and swiftly) be printed and framed.



Super cute magnet bookmarks you (and the kids) can make yourselves.



Ah-mazing recipe for chicken salad that is perfect for a hungry papa.



Encourage coaster-use and find all the supplies easily. Love this idea!



Perfect treat for pops (and the rest of us!) when it is super hot outside (like it is here in AZ)!



This idea is so sweet – have the kids write out things they love about Dad.



I’m pretty sure my Dad would faint of happy if he opened a box of these whoopie pies.

Also check out the Father’s Day gift guide over at Hollywood Housewife (Laura is one of our fearless contributors!). What are you thinking up for the dad (yours or someone else’s!) in your life?

  1. The coasters are the cutest! I’m loving all of your last minute gifts ideas, of course I’m such a procrastinator and haven’t done anything yet-but making those shakes may be the perfect way to help celebrate on Sunday!

  2. Oh my goodness. Those framed shadow photos are about the CUTEST things I’ve ever seen!

  3. I love the magnet bookmarks. So original!

  4. I love these , a great mix of gift ideas.
    I find last minute home made treats always go down well, or making a nice cooked breakfast in the morning offers a nice treat.
