Sometimes time runs away on us and even something really important can slip our minds. This may have happened to you this Father’s Day and with only two days to go until the big day, it’s no wonder if you’re starting to panic.
Although with COVID-19 it has been hard if not impossible for some people to go to the shops. While there it’s even harder to take the time to browse and search for the perfect gift as it feels like every shopping trip needs to be as quick and efficient as it can be.
So, what do you do when it’s two days before Father’s Day and you have no present? Well, you could run in a frantic panic and try and get your hands on anything in the shops. Or you could dedicate a little bit of time and artistic attention to the task at hand and make a homemade gift this year.
Homemade gifts are amazing for two reasons, number one, they are usually relatively cheap to make and also quite fun. Secondly, they are super thoughtful! For the majority of people, a homemade gift would outweigh the significance of a bought materialistic item. The fact that you dedicated time and effort into making something special and unique for them will speak volumes.
So follow these five tutorials to make some gorgeous last-minute Father’s Day gifts:
