Five creative DIY gift ideas to try this Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to show your dad that you think he is awesome than with a home-made gift? Instead of the usual socks or neck tie, spoil your dad with a heartfelt gift that you can easily make using your home printer.

1. Cheers, dad! For the self-proclaimed wine sommelier or whiskey connoisseur dads out there, a personalised label will add a special touch to this Father’s Day favourite. Whether it’s a photo of the two of you together or just a few simple yet meaningful words, your personalised bottle will surely make its way onto the shelf with his other collectibles. You can design a label from scratch or, if you need some inspiration, there are plenty of free printable templates available online.

2. Leave your mark. If your dad spends more time with his nose in a book than fighting for the TV remote, a home-made bookmark is the ideal gift. By creating a collage of your most treasured family photos and using a home photo-printer such as the Epson L850 to print it, your dad will love seeing his children’s faces every time he opens his latest read.

3. Because I said so. Nothing tells your dad exactly what he means to you more than a mini-book of ten reasons why you love him. Customise each page with a different message of appreciation, a special moment that you shared or even one of your inside jokes. A ‘Reasons I Love You Dad’ book will make him laugh, cry and smile all at once and is one he will want to return to again and again.

4. The gift that coup(s)on giving. No one knows your dad better than you do. A book of coupons filled with all of his favourite things is a great way to show him how much you care. From breakfast in bed to a free car wash, you’ll spoil him with something memorable that can last all year long. Design your own coupons or download and print a free template such as these from Epson.    

5. Paper Heart. We all think our dad is the most special guy we know, and a home-made Father’s Day card is the perfect way to tell him just what he means to you. For the creatives out there, put pen to paper and surprise him with a personalised poem, or alternatively a simple yet heartfelt message can have an equally significant impact.

Taking the time to select the perfect gift for your dad shows how much he means to you, but is no match for a gift you’ve made yourself. Using just a home printer and lots of love, you can create these paper presents that will last long after the day is over.

Epson wishes all the dads, father-figures and superheroes out there a Happy Father’s Day.
