3. Amazing Dad DVD
If your dad is like most dads, he probably looks forward to relaxing in a comfortable chair with a good DVD every now and then. How do you think he would feel watching a 30 minute DVD called The Incredible Adventures of Amazing Dad, starring himself as a superhero who succeeds at defeating the evil Professor Nasty? Yep, it’s a little cheesy, but just like a good Dad Joke, your dad will probably find it much funnier than everyone else does.
4. DIY Tie
A personalised Fathers Day tie is the perfect project for young children who love craft (are there any young children who don’t enjoy a good arts and crafts session?). This DIY neckties can also be made as a personalised alternative to a store-bought Fathers Day card.
5. Daddy’s Chair
From Hard To Find

7. What We Love about Dad
From Hard To Find

This personalised print comes in a variety of different colours and can be completely customised with your choice of text.
8. Clever DIY Origami Card
There are so many circumstances where the card is much more important than the present. The card is where we express our true sentiments, and most people will agree that there is nothing like receiving a handmade greeting card rather than one that has been store bought. If you enjoy paper craft and have some basic craft supplies on hand, this DIY origami Fathers Day card will probably turn out to be one of your father’s favourite gifts on Fathers Day.
9. Family Love Mug
From Identity Direct
We’ve all seen those little stickers on the back window of cars, showing each member of the driver’s family as a little cartoon or caricature. This mug encapsulates the same idea, by allowing you to personalise the mug with up to six figures, including infants and pets. In addition, a maximum of nine characters of text can also be printed underneath each figure to show that person’s name.
10. Make It Yourself Tool Bucket
If you’re looking for a DIY Fathers Day project that will be as practical and useful as it is clever and aesthetically pleasing, this handmade tool bucket ticks all the boxes. You’ll need quite a range of materials, including a sewing machine and the know-how to use it, but if you are confident with a medium-level craft project, you’re sure to be happy with the end result – and so will your dad.
11. AFL Clock

12. Personalised Hammer
Dads are synonymous with building things, fixing things, hanging pictures, and various other activities that involve hammering nails. If the highlight of your weekends as a child used to be working alongside your dad and hammering a couple of nails into a spare piece of wood, this personalised hammer (which can be purchased directly from Etsy or completed as a DIY project if you’re confident with your calligraphy skills) will be the perfect way of commemorating your childhood memories.
13. Personalised IPhone Case
Let’s face it – most dads love their tech gadgets. There are also prone to dropping or otherwise damaging their beloved tech gadgets, so a personalised iPhone case that is both visually appealing as well as extra tough and protective will help your dad to keep his iPhone in good condition.
