 What Dad wouldn’t love this painted rock paperweight, handmade by his child?

First, hunt for and find the perfect rock. A flat, oval shaped rock works best, but because it’s a gift, let your child choose and make it their own.

From my experience, painting the rock on a paper plate saves time and mess. The rock has to stay on the plate while you paint it and makes it easy to move to a drying spot.

Let your child pick the paint colors and paint the rock. I’d recommend a light color like orange, yellow or white.

Use the permanent marker to write “My Dad Rocks”. We added a little glitter to ours. Get creative and add glitter, puff paint or stickers. Wrap up your gift. Your special someone is sure to love this paperweight-made with love.

Dad-approved gifts for Father’s Day

An entire day dedicated to dear ol’ dad may not be enough to show the depths of your appreciation, but a hug, a heartfelt thanks and some quality time (even from afar) are great places to start.

When it comes to giving gifts for Father’s Day, practical and purposeful gifts are high on most dads’ lists. Think about his favorite things to eat and the ways he spends his coveted down time. A gift that celebrates the things that matter most to him is sure to earn dad’s gratitude.

Gear to Go Fishing

Even the most avid fishermen can typically use more gear. From replenishing the tackle box with fresh supplies to a new rod he can use to reel in a real catch, gift dad with items that let him hang out a “gone fishing” sign and enjoy some time on the water. If he’s an extra-avid sportsman, be sure to also check out the wide variety of tech-enabled locators that give him a little nudge to boost his chances for a successful day.

Supplies He’ll Auto-matically Enjoy

If tinkering in the garage is dad’s favorite pastime, give him an excuse to spend even more time with a project that proves he’s passing the hours productively. A collection of car detailing supplies lets him buff and shine his ride to perfection. Be sure to include products that let him spruce things up inside and out, and throw in an extra touch like a personalized travel mug that will keep on giving well after Father’s Day has passed.
