This is what Im doing for my hubby this year.. My father died before I was born so I have never gotten to make him something. So I dont know if I am much help. But you asked for ideas, so heres mine!

This is the picture I used as a reference. Mine looks different, and I really really wish I had nice handwriting to write the 'Fathers Day' on there, but I dont. So I had to work with my own. lol

I'm doing a foot print for each of our 3 kids, each framed in their own frame with a saying in each one- 1) From the bottom of our hearts 2) To the tips of our toes 3) We love you, Daddy.
