It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is coming and if you haven’t started your preparations yet, it is time. Of course, we are all thinking about our decor and Christmas tree. Just as important, however, are the Christmas presents for our loved ones. And, today, we are going to focus on one of the most important people in our lives – our dad. Our dads have provided for us our entire lives, asking for nothing in return. That is exactly why, sometimes it might be very difficult to decide on their present. After all, what do you give the man who has everything? Well, we have prepared a few DIY tutorials, as well as other ideas for personal Christmas gifts for dad!
Christmas is around the corner and so is the season of gift giving

DIY for a painted wood coasters set
DIY gifts for dad from daughter
- wood slices
- different stencils (you don’t need those if you want to paint them yourself)
- acrylic paint in a desired color
- paint brush
- polyurethane varnish
- thin cork or felt
If you can draw you can get creative without using a stencil
- Apply your paint with the paintbrush using the stencil or draw your own design. Let dry, then apply second coat and let dry again.
- Apply two coats of the varnish to repel water and keep the design.
- Trace out the wood slices onto the cork or felt, cut it out and use hot glue to attach it to the bottom of the wood.
You can tailor the coasters according to your dad’s hobbies

Beautiful, rustic handmade clock
Unique gifts for dad
- a piece of wood
- clock kit (motor, hands, numbers and double A battery) in a preferred color
- keyhole hanger
- wood carving tools
- Measure the diameter of the wood and put a dot in the center with a pencil.
- Place the movement motor at the center and trace out its outline on the wood.
- Chisel out the wood in the outline of the motor, then drill a whole in the middle of the square outline you have just carved out.
- Sand the wood.
- Insert the movement motor into the chiseled out square.
- On the face of the clock use a plate or any circular object to trace out the circle on which the numbers are going to be placed.
- Install the clock hands in the middle of the circle on the shaft of the motor. Make sure they work properly.
- Use a ruler to place the numbers around the circle evenly.
- Finally, install the keyhole hanger.
Carving out the space for the motor is probably the most difficult part of this DIY

The placement of the numbers needs to be measured properly in order for the clock to work
