I don't know about you, but I always struggle to come up with gift ideas for both my dad and my husband, but this year, I'm going to support small business for Father's Day and buy them gifts that have been handcrafted with love by makers like me.
Father's Day gifts are often challenging; dads aren't traditionally sentimental like moms tend to be, so sweet handprint art and personalized jewelry may not be their style, but there are always ways to show them you love them without getting too cheeseball. (And I love cheeseball!)
I've gathered this collection of gift ideas in a variety of price points and categories, so you're sure to find something great for the dad you love. It doesn't matter if he's actually a parent, any guy who is important in your life deserves to be celebrated for Father's Day!
Shop Small Business for Father's Day
Lacey Olson Design: Oh my goodness, the stickers and magnets! Help dad celebrate his fandom with a set of references to his favorite show! I ordered a set of Letterkenney magnets that will look perfect on our garage fridge, and I may have to snag this Schitt's Creek Simply the Best sticker for myself.
Sydney's Dog Cookies: Show your love for dad by showing love for his bestie. These Bacon Snickerdoodle Dog Treats look amazing, and Sydney uses only the highest quality ingredients in her treats for pups.
Lisa Lehmann Designs: I've been a fan of Lisa's minimalist jewelry for a long time, and love some of her more masculine pieces. This personalized dad necklace features the word for “dad” in half a dozen languages, and can be customized with punched holes representing each child. Want something he can wear every day? This hammered silver cross is pretty spectacular.
Coral Bunny and Lo: Grab one of these handsewn items in a fun print for dad! Beverage carriers and tortilla warmers are just perfect for a food and drink loving papa!
Four Eyes Creative: How about a gift the whole family can enjoy? A piece of art to hang on the wall is always a fun gift, and we're kind of obsessed with these adorable family portraits. Get your wizard on with a Harry Potter portrait, or live out your scary movie fantasies with horror movie pic.
Bite the Heads off Cookies: Kristi makes awesome cookies and ships them all over. She has some options on her site, but you can also reach out to her if you want something specific. I commissioned her to make a themed set for a friend recently, and they turned out amazing!
Facequality: If you've got a dad with a good skincare routine, he'll appreciate these handsewn, reusable pads for product application. Available in tons of cute prints, there's bound to be one that's perfect for your guy.
Art by Alicia L: If a written note is more your style, Alicia offers handmade greeting cards and is also available for commissions, if you have an idea that you need to make a reality!
I love gifting the people who are most important to me, so I'm a big fan of Father's Day (It's possible that one or more of these items are on their way to me right now for Jamie!)
Buying handmade shows the recipient that you care and helps support small businesses and craftspeople make a living. It's really a win all around!
