Finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day is always a struggle – especially when they ‘don’t want anything’! This year, why not do something a little different and create a personalised present he’ll be delighted to receive. Choose one of our three homemade gifts to make your dad happy this Sunday!

Personalised gifts for the home to make for your dad this Father's Day - by Jackie Lee


1. Personalised Frame
For this gift, all you need is a printer, photos, frame, scissors, string and some small pegs. You may already have a lot of these items in your home but if not you can pick them up from most local stores. The first step is to pick your photos, whether these be embarrassing ones or cute baby photos, whatever you think your dad would like the most. Then print them and cut them out. Next take the frame and attach string from one end to the other, making sure you attach it firmly. You can decide how many lines of string you want to do depending on the size of your frame and photos. Lastly use the small pegs to attach the photos to the string. The best part about this personalised gift is the fact that your dad can change the photos himself by reattaching new ones as his children grow older or grandchildren start to appear.

2. Personalised Hamper
Thank your dad for everything he does by giving him a personalised gift of everything he loves. Pick up a wicker basket or decorative box and fill it with all you dad’s favourite items. Whether it be a DVD of his favourite film, a bottle of his favourite drink, a favourite photo of his, or a book by his favourite author. The possibilities are endless. Each item is completely personal to your dad and what he loves. This gift is guaranteed to make him smile this Father’s Day.

3. Mnemonic Poem
D - Do something different this Father’s Day by creating a mnemonic poem to frame for your dad telling him why you love him so much.
A - A simple personalised gift like this is perfect for your dad to hang up at home as something different to just a common photo frame.
D - Do make sure you get as creative as possible when describing your dad in your Mnemonic poem in order to make it extra special.
