Gift ideas for Father's Day

Father's Day is coming up soon and if you're stuck for ideas, we put together a selection of craft and DIY ideas for a Father's Day gift you can make with love.


If dad is a sports fanatic, use elements from his favourite sport to craft a picture frame that he can put on his desk or next to the bed. Buy a cheap frame from a home decor store - or upcycle a frame you already have - with Rust-Oleum metallic spray paint.





If mom loves to make things in the kitchen, these chocolate covered strawberries can be decorated to fit the occasion. Create a batch of sweet delights and embellish with his favourite sport and then box them up to give to dad on Father's Day.

What dad doesn't like to sit outside and relax in the garden. Make him a drink holder that he can stick in the ground close to his pozzie while he relaxes. All you need is a few recycled food cans, some nuts and washers and a length of threaded rod.

For the dad who loves to braai - this wall mounted storage cabinet is the perfect gift. Made using PAR pine that you can buy at your nearest Builders, he can store all his braai essentials inside the cabinet close to the braai.

Make dad a braai hamper filled will braai essentials and a set of braaing tools. Pack them all into a pine caddy made with love. We've got easy instructions for a tool caddy in our DIY section, or try this easy tool caddy project.
