How to Tuesday Round Up: Father's Day DIY Gift Ideas

It's time to show the dad in your life how much you care! We've rounded up our favorite ideas for DIY gifts that are sure to please.

1. Coffee Mugs. Check out these adorable handcrafted mugs that you can make with kids of almost any age (via Coconut Robot). If you're not up for crafting, One Strange Bird carries dad-centric mugs for every occasion. Stop by the store or shop online here.

2. BBQ Rub and Grilling Prep Plates. For a stylish DIY gift he'll actually use, check out these grilling prep plates (via These Little Loves). Add a homemade BBQ spice rub, and he'll be set for the summer grilling season! (via Delia Creates)

3. Board Games. Is dad's favorite night of the week game night? Update some of the best old school games with a splash of color. Your family will enjoy these for years to come! (via Brit + Co)

4. Bake a Pie. The ultimate DIY projects (and tastiest) are made with food! If dad loves spending time in the kitchen, make a date to bake with him. Check out this awesome summer peach pie recipe for inspiration. (via Smitten Kitchen)

5. Cards (+ a Family Date). Does dad love being active outdoors with the kiddos? Write him a card that promises to take a family outing to the driving range, go karts, or maybe even indoor skydiving! Drop by One Strange Bird and check out our amazing collection of cards to get you started!
