Handmade Gifts For Dad From Teen

Father's Day is just around the corner and the last thing your teen's father needs is another tie or coffee mug. That's why we came up with three DIY gifts for dad for your pre-teens/teenagers to do. Dad will be delighted when he sees how much effort his teenager put in to make his day extra special (and possibly shocked when he learns how much time he or she spent away from their iPhone.)

1. Comic Book Coasters

Check out these way cool Comic Book Coasters by Mod Podge Rocks. Accompanying card can read "Dads are the real superheroes."

2. Tablet Case

Gift Dad something he will actually use, like this leather iPad case by Martha Stewart Living. Get your child started by cutting the pieces of leather for them. Invest in a leather hole punch, and let them do the threading/pick out the colors. There are also patterns for a wallet, mouse pad, and pen case if Dad doesn't have a tablet.

3. Dinner and Dessert

Get the older kids involved in helping you prepare a special dinner just for dad. Dad will surely love these Honey Barbeque Chicken Wings from Hip2Save finished off with a slice of the ultra rich Bacon Stout Chocolate Cheesecake by Tide & Thyme.
