Quick DIY Father's Day Gift Ideas

With the flu bug flying around this year for the past month in our home, Dumpling and I have not been out much to do much shopping for Father's Day Gift. I spent some time googling online for fun ideas to do with Dumpling and OMG, I chanced upon this lovely idea of using Lego for cufflinks! And so, with a dig through my cupboards and the Lego blocks, we made this! Ta da!

All that you need to do is just to stick the back of a Lego brick to an old cufflink / new cufflink base. :)

Now, I also wanted to add on more fun ideas where Dumpling can have some input into what she wants to give and we decided on a coupon book!

I basically just used power point to create rectangles where I added on free clip art images. Dumpling then has the free play of deciding what Daddy can redeem for :) She was giggling the whole night as she doodled, added stickers and letters to the pages. And because it is a surprise, we are not revealing what's inside. :p

Looking for more ideas? You can also DIY a simple photo frame with duct tape written by Adora who guest post for me. Or is Dad a foodie? You can also consider making your very own jam with just 4 easy-to-get ingredients!

Here's more Father's Day gift / craft ideas to share:

Have a great one!

  1. OMG how coincidental can it be? We did a similar gift! LOL. Not the cuff links but the coupon book, same inspiration. Mine will be up on Creativity 521. Maybe, erm, great minds think alike? Wahaha. Love the other ideas too! Thanks for sharing!

    1. LOL, it is such a great and flexible idea right? Did the dad love it? My hubs is claiming his massage! :p
