It’s that time of year again when everything about fatherhood is celebrated by all those who benefit from. Sure, you could get Dear Old Dad another tie, but that’s so cliché. Let’s face it, Pops can sometimes be hard to shop for. You want to get something special that shows how much you care but you also want it to be something unique and nothing he already has.
Dear Old Dad…
When looking for a good Father’s Day gift, why not go for something handmade. When you go that route you hit the trifecta of gift giving. Handmade means one of a kind so you can be sure he doesn’t already have it. Handmade also means something special because you have some sort of input whether it be a personalized saying or your very own handwriting. Handmade means support. You are gifting something that someone else has made and, by doing so, you help them provide for their own families by making their hard work a part of yours.
