To help our readers prepare something unique and special for their father, we have collected some unique DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ideas:
Go Paperless & Design your Mark
Digital revolution has already taken over our lives and post-pandemic, it’s become the new way of life in the virtual world. While there are countless advantages and disadvantages of the same, we can actually utilise it to touch a father’s heart.
With several free online designing software, platform and apps, it is not a challenging task to pick up photos and create a lovely video with father’s day playing in the background. This is a surprise for fathers and a good way to relive our memories, said designer Saad Khan.
For those whose father is not into the digital world, a beautiful collage can be prepared on a sheet of paper and cutouts.
Pen is mightier than the sword
Penning down a few loving words has a much higher impact on fathers than one can imagine. Even if you don’t have your way with words, you can still write your feelings in simple words.
It is not a bad idea to pick up a song or poem that is written by someone else, but depicts your emotions aptly.
“Letters from my parents are my most treasured possessions till date and one cannot deny the feel, strength and courage I still gather from those words,” Padma Shri Janak McGilligan Palta said.
The tummy route
A delicious meal prepared by his children is bound to be special even if not perfect. It is a good idea to prepare your dad’s favourite meals on this Father’s Day. If you are not sure what to prepare, even a simple daily recipe like moonglets might do the trick.
Just remember to present it with a special father’s day touch. “We can add personal touch with a note, a song or even a sweet dish by side,” said Asha Agrawal, a chef.
Paint, Create and Personalise
From painting a stone to a glass jar, everything in your home can easily be personalised with acrylic, glass and other colours. Pick up your brushes and personalise it with abstract designs if you don’t have the artistic flair.
It is also a good idea to add sparkles and notes into a jar or pen stand, which your father can use for daily office work, suggested craft designer Anju K.
