Top Tips | Father’s Day Presents

Following on from suggesting our favourite Father’s Day cards, now we have a trio of presents that could be right up your street.

Footprint canvas

This is a lovely sentimental gift that has many options to adapt how you want. You will need:

  • A canvas
  • Coloured paints
  • Paintbrush
  • A pair of Daddy’s shoes

Make a print on the canvas of Daddy’s shoes and leave to dry for a couple of minutes. Now print each child’s foot over the top of the shoe prints. A top tip here is for children it is easier for them to put their foot down where is needed. For toddlers and babies it is easier to bring the canvas to their foot and print that way.

To adapt this present to suit your family there are many different options.

  • If you have more than two children, you can print the feet over other parts of the shoe to fit them on all on, making sure you use vivid colours so the show through.
  • You can write the ages of the children next to the feet, or just put the year at the bottom of the canvas.
  • For older children they can write their own message next to their foot.
  • Happy Father’s Day can be written on so it’s always a reminder of when the present was given.


Activity tokens

This brilliant idea is curtosy of Not on the High Street, link here. This brillant concept involves tokens with small simple activities that a child and father can do together for that much needed quality time. Of course this could be easily made too to make it totally personalised.


Personalised frames

Got a photo of Daddy and the children that would be the perfect gift? This is a great way of personalising it. With a permanent marker, write each letter of children and Daddy’s names on small gravel pieces and stick the names around a plain photo frame. It personalise it further you could use decoupage to theme the frame in an interest of Daddy’s before sticking the names to it. A simple, rustic and totally imperfect homemade gift!
