Friday Favorites–Father’s Day, Part 2

I don’t know why we’re surprised every year when school gets out and the next weekend is Father’s Day.  It’s been that way for years, yet we always seem to be scrambling.  I made my husband a great gift yesterday, but it’s too close to the big day to write about it this year, so I’m saving it for 2014.  If you’d like a preview, check it out on Instagram.

It might be too late for me to write up a new tutorial, but there’s still a little time for you to whip up something great for Dad.  This Etched Glass Baseball Vase from Madigan Made would actually be pretty quick and great for the desk of a baseball fan.

These Letter Blocks for Dad from Stories by Me would also make a fun addition to Dad’s workspace.

This Father’s Day Photo Collage from Positively Splendid is cute, and dads always love photos of the kiddos.  Bonus points for getting them to sit still, smile and hold their sign.

Is Dad a tie guy?  If so, maybe he has one that he doesn’t wear anymore that you could use to make this Men’s Necktie Eyeglass Case from A Law Student’s Journey.

If you’re planning to buy him a new tie to replace the one you just repurposed, why not add one of these Shrinky Dink Tie Tacks?  Mini kid photos he can wear!

If the dad you’re gifting happens to have the right degree of quirkiness, try this Wooden Bow Tie from Preston Made.

It’s not too late to order this docking station from Etsy seller NorthCoastSign for Father’s Day.  Just give him a photo showing what’s on its way.

The only way these Root Beer Float Brownies from Cookies and Cups would be better for Father’s Day is if you used Dad’s brand root beer.  Ok, they’d be good either way.

Happy Father’s Day to all the papas out there!
