Top 10: Unique Father's Day Gifts

As May is winding down (how did that happen??) my mind is heading into Summer.  Some of the best Father's Day presents do not have to be crazy expensive, but they may take some planning time!  So today we're getting a head start on Father's Day with a Top 10 round up of unique Father's Day gift ideas!  I've done my best to pull together a large variety of ideas, from DIY with the kids, to unique customized to just what the man in your life likes.  Let's get started!

1.)  Men's Subscription Services
The thing I love most about companies like Birchbox or Beauty Box is that it really is (ok I'm going to sound corny..)the gift that keeps on giving.  Personally I LOVE those kinds of gifts! They've come out with so many different variations of subscription box services that they are not at all primarily for women anymore.  Some of my favorites are Birchbox Man, The Tie Bar, Mystery Tackle Box (for the outdoorsy man), and The Handy Box (for the gadget loving Mr. Fix It).

2.)  Child's Artwork Key Chain
This etsy shop transforms your child's artwork/handwriting to daddy in a unique key chain.  How precious is this!

3.)  DIY Tie Holder
Is this a win-win or what?!  Dad gets an adorable tie holder and mom gets a closet floor she walk in without stepping on the ties.  The vinyl for this as well as the DIY tutorial is found here at Poppies at Play!

4.)  Generations Picture
I can't get over the precious factor on this one.  Talk about a gift for all the father's in your family to truly cherish.  Again this one is a super inexpensive idea as well, but very expensive in the meaning/sentimental department.

5.)  DIY Dad Clock 
It's true, most women would be thrilled with a simple wall hanging with a picture of her and her babes, but remember-men like function and practicality.  This is the perfect solution and Amy provides a perfect tutorial here.

6.)  For the Kid at Heart
Does your man work with kids for a living?  Or is just a big kid himself?  I love these Lego cufflinks that reminds him to not take life too seriously.  Instructables offers a great tutorial on how to make these yourself!

7.)  Tie Wreath
Love this idea!  This takes something that could appear simple and lackluster like a new tie to such a fun, creative level!

8.)  Father's Day Party
Have a large family?  Or even just a great group of girlfriends?  Join forces and throw the father's in your group a giant party!  Make sure to include all the guys favorites-food, plenty of man-movies or ESPN going in the living room, and have each woman (host) bring a small gift for each father represented.  (Think smallish-a pack of their fav pop or candy bar).  I Heart Naptime has provided great printables that would work perfect for this idea!  They can be found here

9.)  All About Dad
Source unknown
  This is a super simple and inexpensive option that really involves the kids.  Sit down and interview them with questions about their daddy.  Include those questions and answers in a beautiful print like this or even on a video!

10.)  Customize it!

  8. My dad hit his quotas and bonuses at work after a long year of trying to catch up. My family and I are looking for some awesome gifts for my dad but we don't really know what to look for. This helped a ton though and I hope that we can find something soon.

  9. Number two is adorable! My children make me things all the time. I should definitely see what I can do to make some of them into something I see more, like the key chain.
