Top 5 DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas:

With Father’s Day just around the corner, why not treat your dad to a personalised DIY Gift this year?

At Kontenta, we’ve picked our Top 5 DIY Father’s Day Gifts that can easily be re-created at home.

Gift Basket:

A Gift Basket is the easiest and most simple gift to produce from our Top 5.fathers-day-gift-basketWhat you will need:

  • A Small Basket
  • Goodies of your Choice
  • Bows/Ribbons

You can personalise the theme of your basket depending on your father’s tastes and interests.

For example, if your father enjoys that morning coffee, arrange a gift basket with his favourite coffee blends and biscuits. Add a new coffee mug or framed coffee print to really get in his good books!

A colourful bow or ribbon on the handle will add the perfect finishing touch to your basket.

Personalised Mug:

For an easy and inexpensive homemade gift, the Personalised Mug is the classic touching gift for the kids to put together this year!fathers-day-diy-mugWhat you will need:

  • A Plain White Mug
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush

Like the Gift Basket, the painted theme of the Mug can be personalised depending on your father’s interests!

Once the painting is complete, allow the paint to air dry for approximately 1 hour.

When the hour has passed, place your mug in the centre of your oven and heat at 180*C for 30 minutes.

Allow plenty of time for the mug to cool before wrapping!

Grill Set Holder:

These warmer months will have your dad itching to get the family BBQ out.

So why not craft a gift that he can use during the Summer?fathers-day-diy-grill-setWhat you will need:

  • Wooden Board
  • Paint (Any Colour of Your Choice)
  • Picture Hangers

To make your own Grill Set Holder, you firstly want to paint your wood. Add a few layers of paint before allowing plenty of time for the paint to dry.

You can then choose to add a few words to the very top of your board, you can simply paint these on or use a stencil for a more professional approach.

Finally, you can add your picture hangers. Stick these down nice and firm, positioning them quite high up on your board to allow the BBQ tools to hang down.

Painted Coasters:

For a cold beer on a Friday evening or a hot coffee on a Monday morning, dad’s will love their own personalised drinks coasters!diy-fathers-day-coasterWhat you will need:

  • Cork Coasters
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush

Like the Personalised Mug and Gift Basket, the theme and colours of your Painted Coaster is totally down to you (or more likely the kids).

But if you really want your Painted Coaster to impress, try using a stencil to create a special and more co-ordinated design.


Coupons are always a fun gift to receive!

The kids can make their own Coupon Booklet for dad to use as and when he pleases.fathers-day-coupon-bookletWhat you will need:

  • A4 Pieces of Card
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Coloured Pencils
  • Stapler

Start by evenly drawing out your coupons on the A4 card, cut these out neatly using your scissors. The size of each square is dependent on how many coupons you’d like to award your dad!

Don’t forget to save one square for the front page of your coupon booklet! Make this page stand out with plenty of bright colours!

The designs of your coupons are totally down to you! Just make sure you leave enough space in the centre of the card to write out your coupon.

Once complete, gather all your coupons together and staple them together in the top left-hand corner.
