10 Easy-to-Make Father's Day Gifts

10 Easy-to-Make Father's Day Gifts

Ah, Father's Day.

Singapore celebrates this special day on June 15th which is set aside for the one who has cared for you, picked you up when you're down and taught you how to be the responsible person that you are today. He has worked hard to make sure you will always have a roof over your head, a sanctuary from the world to come home to.

He's also the same person who knows all the terrible jokes in the world and never fails to tell them over and over again. Sometimes he would start doing the "twist" in public even though he's got two left feet (and knows). If that isn't embarrassing enough for you, he would insist to take pictures at every opportune moment but never really gets everyone in shot or the photos mostly come out blurry.

But that's Dad, the first Superman you know.

So for someone who has provided so much for you and the rest of the family over the years, how do we show our appreciation this Father's Day? We've got great gift ideas that you can make yourself which your dad will truly treasure.

1. "Special Dates" Art Print

There are many shops online like Somebody Else’s Project that sell beautiful art prints such as this one. This thoughtful gift is a beautiful reminder of special moments like birthdays and wedding anniversary. However if you’re pressed for time or money, you can easily create them using your own computer on programs like Photoshop or even the basic Paint. Design your own art print and Dad will be impressed.

2. Coaster set

Make your own set of drink coasters using photos that you think Dad might like. Perhaps some kind of artwork or old school DC comics (bonus points if Dad’s a fan!) and decoupage them onto square tiles. Back the tiles with felt so that they won’t scratch surfaces.

3. Leather Cord Roll

Dads would appreciate practical gifts and if he’s the type who is kind of a tech geek with his HDMI cable for this and USB cable for that, get him a cool storage cord roll. Better yet, make it. Here’s a step by step guide.

6. Floppy Disk Planters

Since you're not using them anymore, why not create a new use for them? In this case, plant new green life within four pieces of floppy disks. This would be great if Dad’s into gardening. What a thoughtful gift for the one who mostly like introduced you to floppy disks in the first place.

9. Lego Key Holder

First, you may need to order a special type of Lego piece (in blue above) to attach the key. Then the rest should be easy to follow through with any old Lego pieces you might have lying around at home. It’s another practical gift that’s simple to make and looks really neat just about anywhere.
