Take the Cake: Bite-sized Inspiration for the Savvy Baker

Handcrafted Father’s Day Gifts

Father’s Day is upon us; don’t wait until the last minute to get him a present!

Don’t know what to get Dad for Father’s Day? You’ve thought of everything:  last year you bought him a sweatshirt for his favorite baseball team, the year before it was a gift box from Harry and David, the year before that was a pair of slippers, and even before that it was something to go with his fishing set.

Try a handcrafted gift! Whether it’s made with your own hands or the hands of another, these gifts will give Dad the feels. From frames created by hand that will hold the memories that you’ve made together over the years to a homemade barbecue sauce that is guaranteed to knock his socks off! These gifts are so meaningful they may even cause him to tear up (the tears, of which, he will conveniently blame on the chopped onions on a counter nearby). Check out the father’s day gifts below and get inspired:


Rialto Frame

This bold wavy black frame would be ideal to use to showcase your art. A small, colorful work of art with a white background and black framing would be the perfect statement piece. Buy one here.
