6. Luggage Handle Cover

While we might not be traveling too much right now, when the time does finally come to hitting the skies again, Dad will still need something to help him locate his luggage among a sea of other suitcases at the airport. Make a handsome luggage handle cover to embellish his suitcase, making it easy to spot.

7. Father’s Day Questionnaire

Create a questionnaire that’s all about Dad and have the kids answer it. This is a great gift to come from younger kids who often have sweet and silly answers but on the flip side, with your older kids you might see some real sentimentality come through that might not otherwise. Frame the finished questionnaire for Dad to display and enjoy.

8. Daddy’s Car Wash Kit

Kids love helping when it’s car washing time (although helping might be a bit strong). So create a car wash kit that keeps all his car-washing supplies in one spot. Next time the car needs washing, Dad and the kids will be able to get right to it.
