I find Father’s Day gifts to be one of the hardest gifts to buy. Unless your guy has a specific hobby that you can add to each year, it can be really hard to come up with what to get. Lucky for you, I’m here to help you with a few ideas this year!  

If you have young children, I find homemade gifts to be the best option. What Dad doesn’t love getting gift made just for them by their little ones. A few that we have done in the past year are:

Over the past few months I have been struggling with what kind of meals to make for myself and my two year old son. To give you a bit of perspective, I am a horrible eater and could survive on coffee and some crackers for the entire day. On the other hand, part of my bad eating habits have rubbed off on my son (who refuses to eat half the time). Also as a single parent I am not one to buy a ton of groceries just to have them in the fridge when more then half of them will probably go to waste and or won’t even get eaten just for the sake of trying to cook for one adult and one child.

Back in the day when we had never heard about Hygge, my sister came home with the idea of making our own candles.  The process involved using an empty milk carton in which a wick was steadied as we poured melted paraffin with chunks of our favourite broken wax crayons.  For variety, you might put ice in the bottom first to create those awesome designs on the outside of the candle.  Once the wax was set, you cut away the milk carton and your candle was ready to be gifted to your mom as the perfect addition to her “groovy” 60s décor!
