Special dads deserve a Father’s Day gift to make their entire year and show pride. However, getting a present for a father who has everything he needs and does not want anything can be challenging so a custom option can be a surprise he will not see coming. Keep reading for several personalized Father’s Day gifts your dad will love and cherish for many years.
Custom saying t-shirt
Almost every dad has some saying that gets talked and laughed about throughout the family. Anytime someone hears it, they automatically think of him. So consider this Father’s Day the perfect opportunity to customize a shirt, like the Bella + Canvas unisex raw seam crew pullover, with the saying you have heard so many times before. It is a fantastic way to honor your dad’s humor and/or his words of wisdom.
Childhood family photo painting
Many have a family photo that is a favorite from their childhood, which is so important to them and ingrained into their memory. If your dad has one of his own, consider taking that image and having it turned into a painting. Then, in contrast, choose a photo of you and your dad from early childhood.
Many artists do phenomenal work, and all they need is a high-quality image to go by. Before ordering the painting, make sure your dad has somewhere to put it, the sizing is appropriate, and the style suits his preferences. In addition, it is a good idea to get it framed, and just like with the painting, the frame should complement the space it will go in.
Remember that this Father’s Day gift is one of the more costly options on the list. The painting will take a lot of time and work to ensure a perfect finish, meaning the price will probably be higher. But, if it fits within your budget, you know your dad will love it, and the quality of the work is there, it can be a worthwhile present. However, considering it won’t be a quick project, order it before Father’s Day so the artist has enough time to finish it before the celebration without rushing.
Personalized baked goods
The dad with a sweet tooth may appreciate personalized baked goods for Father’s Day. Think about making them for him if you have some baking skills, and you can consider topping them off with customized options, such as a message or photo printed on an edible paper. Should you prefer to have the food done by a professional, many businesses offer the option of baking the products and customizing them with wording or an image.
As soon as you decide what baked goods you want to get your dad and the image or wording you want to use, place your order immediately if you are going to get it done by a professional so you can get your items by Father’s Day. Bakers tend to get incredibly busy closer to a holiday or celebration. In addition, many bakers allocate only certain products or slots within a particular time frame. Finally, remember to inform the business about any allergies your dad has.
Engraved leather wallet
Some fathers carry around their wallets until they fall apart and are practically in pieces. Suppose this sounds like your dad, an engraved leather wallet may be a great Father’s Day gift. High-quality wallets can last for years and stand up to heavy use.
Depending on the business you go to for the customization, some will do a simple engraving. In contrast, others might allow you to have the wording in your handwriting, adding a fantastic heartfelt flourish your dad will adore. Before you decide what message you want, ask the business how many characters or words they allow and if you need to buy the wallet from them or if you can supply a wallet for them to use.
As with many personalized products, this gift needs advanced ordering as early ahead of Father’s Day as possible. This advanced preparation is critical if you have to buy the wallet through them, so you can get the exact one you know your dad will want without resorting to a backup option.
Before you hand over what you wish the personalized message to say, write it out and let it sit for a few days, so you have time to make adjustments if you change your mind.
Custom labels with containers
Dads who are all about honing their cooking skills might love having custom labels done with complementary containers to put them on. For example, if your father makes his own barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, or spice rub mix, labels featuring his first name and the name of the unique concoction each container holds can be a great Father’s Day gift. However, make sure you choose containers ideal for the corresponding food product in terms of size and keeping the ingredients fresh.
Many places do custom labels professionally, or you can do them yourself. Include washing instructions with the gift so the labels will not get ruined. Often, containers with custom labels need hand washing to maintain the integrity of the wording as opposed to soaking in the sink or going in the dishwasher.
Personalized tool collection
Dads who are handy around the home may love to have a personalized tool collection for Father’s Day. For example, you can buy and put the wording on a hammer, wrench, level, or tape measure. Like with the wallet, as mentioned above, some businesses will do the service for you if you purchase the tools from them, while others may do it on the ones you bought elsewhere. In addition, check before ordering how long the gift will take so you can put the collection of tools together and prepare them in time for Father’s Day.
Even though Father’s Day this year is June 18, it is always early enough to start prepping your dad’s gift. Once you know what present is perfect for him and fits within your budget, place the order if you need to submit customizations so it can be ready in plenty of time.
