Handmade For Dad

As everyone knows Father's Day is Sunday June 16th.
My Dad has got to be the hardest Father to buy for in the world! (Well, maybe not the world,might be a little exaggeration here), but he is SO hard to buy for.
My parents get what they want through the year, all year long.
How in the world do you buy something for them?
I can't afford him a personal star named after him,or some elaborate gift such as that. Who came up with that idea anyway? None one owns the stars, so they shouldn't be allowed to make money from "buying" one. Just my personal belief of course.
Anyway, I was browsing through all the handmade items on Etsy.
Handmade is the best gifts you can give anyone. You can find one of a kinds that no one else will have but him.

If your Dad is no longer with you a good idea is to do what we do for my husband on Mother's Day. We get his Mom and my Grandmother balloons, write a note, and send them off. It makes you feel you are still honoring them. I wrote a blog and posted pictures on Mother's Day about that.

I love the team I am in on Etsy, Promotional Frenzy Team. I personally feel we have some of the best handmade artist on this team, so I am posting some great pictures with the items that some of them created.

At the end of the pictures will be a link to a Treasury I made with more of these very talented members items. I will also have a link with all the members names and stores, so you can browse more awesome gift ideas.
I am sure you will find something special for your Dad, that you wont find in the stores..
