9.  Dress Dad for success with this “homemade” tie for the office (don’t worry, he just needs to wear it out of the house and then change in the car).

16.  Do you miss Daddy when he travels?  Why don’t you make him this custom luggage tag to take with him on his next business trip?

17.  We love to have fun with photo apps and online websites for really beautiful keepsake pieces.  You can make a word cloud using the words that describe Dad or even take an incredible photo and turn it into artwork.

20. We love the idea that mom and their Junior Chefs can get together in the kitchen to make a special Bacon Jam, custom Trail mix, or BBQ Sauce for Dad.  Decorate the jar and it becomes the perfect gift (see how they did this at momstown Newmarket).

We also love just working with the kids on a list of why they love Dad so much and taking the time to share it with him, like Kelly from momstown Oakville did with her kids.


Don’t forget to make Dad some silly Father’s Day treats too!


What will YOU be making this year for Dad?
