Gifts for Dad

Father's Day is coming up - it's June 21 in the U.S., UK, and Canada, and it's September 6 in Australia and New Zealand. This week, the Blogfireguild is honoring Dads everywhere.

I always had trouble finding gifts for my Dad - handmade and custom items are usually associated with moms. But there are a number of great handmade items available for the Dad or Granddad in your life.

I have a friend who's husband will want one of these after their first is born this Fall. It's a "new dad" T-shirt printed by JellybeanApparel

For sports lovers, you should stop by CraftedbyTeri for tissue box covers, representing a number of professional teams, similar to the Bears one below. Perfect for manifying the man cave.

For stylish men in your life, how about dichroic glass and sterling silver cufflinks by Dichroicdazzle. And my own Grandfather would have loved this toolbelt by mikesleatherdesign.
