I am the Queen of Good Intentions. I always (always) have elaborate gift giving plans months in advance of any particular event. We’re talking handmade components and the kind of hands-on time I’m delusional to think I actually will be able to carve out.
And then I inevitably look at the calendar and say “Crap! That’s this week already?!” Because… life.
Sometimes I scale back my elaborate plans and come up with a semi-homemade version of what I had aspired to. Other times I scrap the idea entirely and head straight to Amazon because ain’t nobody got time for that.
So with Father’s Day less than a week away, I thought I’d present you with some options from both sides: fun, quirky gifts you can buy and a few you can DIY.
Let’s start out with the DIYs, since anyone interested in those needs to find themselves on the ball—and quickly. 😉

Cute, right? Some are super simple, some are a bit more involved. Depending on the amount of time you have on your hands though, you should be able to choose one that you can get done in time.
…Unless, of course, you have no time. In that case, you might want to take a peek at this next group.
