Homemade Father’s Day Gift
In Norway, Father’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of November. On Father’s Day, you can surprise your father with a gift, a good experience, and send a loving message to your father and other fathers in general. This can be your grandfather, the father of your child, or a stepfather.
In this blog post, we have put together some ideas for a homemade Father’s Day gift.
An Experience on the Day
Make plans with your father for the day. Plan a trip that both of you will appreciate. It can be visiting places that are meaningful to both of you, or taking a walk in an area neither of you are familiar with. You can bring some coffee or conversation cards with questions where you can ask your father about things in his life.
Custom Beer Labels
It’s easy to make your own bottle labels for beer or wine at Ikast Etikett. If you have brewed your own beer for your father, you can put the labels on the bottles. But you can also just buy your father’s favorite beer and create a small selection for him. Remove the existing labels from the bottles by soaking them in water for a few hours. Now you can apply the unique beer labels that you have designed yourself on the website of Ikast Etikett, onto the bottles.
Home Baking or a Good Meal
There is a saying that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If this applies to your father as well, you can surprise him with a good homemade meal.
When cooking, you can be inspired by the following:
- Make his favorite dish – the obvious solution, but one that is guaranteed to be appreciated.
- Make a dish he hasn’t tried before. This is a good option if he enjoys trying something new.
- Make a dish that reminds him of a special occasion.
- Use some special ingredients, such as his own homegrown potatoes.
If you want it to be less ambitious than a full meal, or if you want help in the kitchen from, for example, children, you can bake a cake or cookies.
Place the pre-baked cookies in a large glass that you have decorated by drawing on the glass or creating your own adhesive label.
Dad’s Favorite Candy
If your father has a sweet tooth, you can give him some of his favorite candy and create a personalized packaging with party stickers.
A Personalized T-Shirt for the World’s Best Dad
You can also create a personalized T-shirt for your father (or the father of your children). Make an iron-on patch with a picture that represents your relationship. At Ikast Etikett, you can easily upload your own photographs or images. In the image below, you can see an example of an iron-on patch with a picture. We have cropped the picture into a heart shape before uploading it. Then we chose to contour cut the image so that the final iron-on patch is also heart-shaped.
