These Father’s Day tutorials are perfect for the pops that is top of the trends. If dad is a a Dapper Dan, make him a new set of handkerchiefs with custom stamps. I love the nautical theme, but I also think you could use geometric shapes to make Southwest-inspired handkerchiefs, too — think Pendleton meets Gatsby. For the jet-setting dad, go with something a bit more rustic, and let the kids restyle vintage luggage tags with art. Encourage the kids to think outside-the-box to come up with new spins on these great gifts for dad.
