4.Rosemary Mint Shaving Cream


Give him a reason to want to shave off that stubble with this wonderful rosemary mint shaving cream. You need shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond or jojoba oil and rosemary and peppermint essential oils. You can put it in a great container and add a new razor to make a gift set or just give him the shaving cream. DIY Instructions and Project Credit –

5. Colored Golf Balls

IDyeGolfBalls_Mainnstead of getting dad the same old boring golf balls that he gets every year for Father’s Day, make this year’s gift a bit special.  This is great for covering imperfections on used balls or you can color new ones, too. The best part is it will help him to keep better tabs on his golf balls. When they get lost at the course, they will be completely different from everyone else’s so he’ll have a much easier time finding them.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Ritstudio

This would be ideal for school kids to make for dad. DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Then She Made
