Free printable Father’s Day cards
Just click on the image below that you’d like to print out as a card and give to your Dad. Both of these printable Father’s Day cards are designed so that you can write your own message inside.
Free printable Father’s Day gift labels and tags
Our top budget-friendly gift idea for Father’s Day is to fill a jar with Dad’s favourite treats (think biltong, chocolate malt balls or jelly beans), then print out this fun ‘Dad’s secret stache’ label and stick it to the jar. Dad will love it and it won’t cost you the earth — win-win!
If your dad likes nuts, then go for the ‘I’m nuts about my daddy’ label or gift tag. If we know dads (and we like to think that we do), they’re guaranteed to appreciate the joke. You’ll get double the brownie points if you use it to label a jar of nuts.
Fun Father’s Day glasses
The kids will LOVE printing and cutting out these cute glasses for Dad, and making him wear them for at least an hour.
Just click on the image to download the file, print the glasses on some stiff cardboard and then cut them out. Use some sticky tape to connect the ear pieces to the frames and you’re done! (We suggest using a craft knife to cut out the insides of the letters – give the kids a hand if they’re on the younger side.)
If you do make these glasses for Dad, PLEASE tweet us a photo of him wearing them to @essentialsmagSA.
