I am slightly panicking that we haven’t started talking about Big Daddy Gifts for Father’s Day until, well… now.
Honestly though, I’m not as worried as I have been in the past. We still have 5 more sleeps, tubs upon tubs of paint, our crazy ideas, and a whole lotta love to get our act together and show Big Daddy how much he means to us.
Running short on time, and still frazzled about what to do as far as Big Daddy Gifts this Father’s Day? Well have no fear, these are our absolute faves, and there is still a chance to get them in the next 5 days!
#5faves :: My 5 fave Last Minute Ideas for Big Daddy Gifts on Father’s Day
1:: BIG DADDY GIFTS – DADDY’S SHOES ON A CANVAS PRINT
Ever since Little Mama was a Teeny Mama, she has always taken a liking to Big Daddy‘s shoes. Ironically enough, she looks just like him, acts like him, walks, and even talks like him. So this gift would not only be easy to photograph, simply because I can probably catch her doing this at least once a day, it would also be incredibly fitting. Big Daddy prides himself in owning a good amount of great quality footwear so it would be fun (not so fun) for him to see his mini-me literally stepping into his shoes.
We absolutely adore this gift idea from Rockin Canvas. It’s unique, perfect from both a son and daughter, and would be a gift that appears to have weeks and weeks of planning behind it. But we all know better right? #lastminutetomfoolery
2:: BIG DADDY GIFTS – THE QUINTESSENTIAL GREETING – HAND AND FOOT PRINTS
Yes… everybody does it. Chances are, your kid’s daycare or school has already done this for every holiday on the calendar. But what’s so cool about these particular prints is that it takes an otherwise overused idea one step further. Word pun is one thing, but actually making the prints into characters that Big Daddy loves? Well… that’s a ten steps ahead of the gang.
3: BIG DADDY GIFTS – DRESS THEM UP IN DADDY’S LOVE
I don’t know about your kiddo, but mine LOVES to dress herself up in Big Daddy‘s fave chinos, skinny tie (with mommy present of course), and slim fit button downs. Lucky for her, Big Daddy is one dapper dude who happens to have fine taste in threads. I can’t think of anything cuter than the little one wearing oversized clothes that, not only look like Big Daddy, but gives him the chance to know that who he is, and what he does for our family never goes unnoticed. Love this clever idea from Wishful Thinking Photography.
4: BIG DADDY GIFTS – STICK CARDS
I don’t know one family that hasn’t made the proverbial long tie father’s day card, or some variation of it. We certainly have, and not surprising, Big Daddy loved it. But if your little one wants to stand out from the rest of the daddy-crazed kiddos on the block, try craft stick cards that fold out like an accordion, revealing all of Big Daddy‘s wonderful qualities. Who wouldn’t love to see wonderful compliments custom decorated with their little ones’ creativity and love? And for us moms, it’s always a treat to be able to finally get some use out of those popsicle sticks that have been taking up room in our craft closet. Thanks to the creative ideas from Danielle’s Place, it’s win win for all!
5:: BIG DADDY GIFTS – A FUNNY T-SHIRT WITH WORD PLAY
Sure, you can get those sweet “I’m the coolest dad. Ever.” and “Aren’t my kids so cute? Here’s their picture…” t-shirts. Those always go over well, especially with daddies that love to wear their kids on their sleeves. But for some of our more subtle daddies out there, like our resident Big Daddy, nothing shows him that we love him (and even better, LIKE him) than acknowledging his favourite shows. Take it a step further and have some fun with word play, adding daddy to the mix, and you got yourself one, happy, celebrated dude. RoAch has definitely got you covered.
This would be especially effective as neither Little Mama (duh!) or I are huge fans of the show. This would be Big Daddy‘s extra special shirt reminding him of his alone time on Sunday nights watching his favourite show, in pure, uninterrupted silence. If that doesn’t bring him to his happy place, I don’t know what will.

It’s never too late to show Big Daddy how special he is! Happy Father’s Day to the Big Daddy in your life,
