Organic Spice Blends (with Men in Mind)

For my foodie inspired, DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for him, I used the following organic spice blends:

Mountain Rose Herbs Grilling Herbs

The grilling herbs spice blend packs a punch with its bold flavor and penetrating aroma which holds itself well against high heat and direct flame. It’s a popular all purpose flavor enhancer for any food dish you typically grill or barbeque where most seasoning will burn off or dissipate.

There’s nothing better than giving the gift of handmade. Something you made with your own two hands for someone special in your life. However, it can be challenging to come up with gift ideas for men. Especially when you’re hunting for Father’s Day gifts from kids that they can either make themselves, or with a little help. Since dads, in particular, can be a challenge to craft for, I’ve put together a roundup of my favorite DIY Father’s Day gifts that just about anyone can DIY.

Father's Day gifts from kids. Give Dad the gift of handmade with gifts the kids can make themselves! These DIY Father's Day gifts from kids are perfect for just about any skill level!

I still remember the delight I felt when I first discovered fabric crayons. We were asked to bring in a white t-shirt to class so we could make Father’s Day gifts. We drew designs representing our families in crayons onto white paper. Then they were ironed onto the t-shirts we’d brought to class. Houses, rainbows, stick figures and dogs were common themes. And of course beautiful fluffy blue clouds and birds in the sky chasing through them. Far superior to the clay ashtrays of the previous year, these t-shirts allowed us to express our love for family through pictures. And besides, my parents didn’t smoke anyway.

Coming up with fresh new ideas for Father’s Day gifts from kids year after year however can be a challenge. So this year, I’ve put together a collection of Father’s Day gifts that anyone can DIY as a special gift for Dad. Grown ups included. So whether you’re five or forty five, or somewhere in between, you can create the perfect DIY Father’s Day gift. (Although younger kids may need a little extra help from Mom.)

Vintage & Handmade Father's Day Gift Ideas. Give Dad a truly special gift this year by giving the gift of handmade. This thoughtful collection of vintage & handmade Father's Day gift ideas are perfect for reminding your dad just how much he means to you.

There have been a lot of times throughout my life that I have, unfortunately, taken my parents for granted. But being who they are, when I’ve needed them, they’ve been there for me no matter what.

Yesterday my dad had heart surgery to remove a 100% blockage in an artery. As with all surgeries there’s a risk. So there I was hoping for the best, yet preparing myself for the worst. Luckily my Dad made it out of surgery without a hiccup. He comes home today.

Recently it’s really hit home that I don’t know what I’d do if I lost either of my parents. I can’t imagine them not being there for me. So I’ve been making the effort to try to visit more. I’ve also been working on trying to slow my roll and appreciate all of the small things that life has to offer.

If you’ve lost your father, my heart is with you. However, if you dad is still kicking, doing all those amazing things that dads do, then I hope he has a wonderful Father’s Day.

Following is my collection of vintage & handmade Father’s Day gifts to help you shop for the perfect Father’s Day gift this year. These gifts are a wonderful gesture to him for all the memorable things he’s done for you throughout your life.
