No matter if you prefer a special DIY gift (or the checkbook just doesn’t have much give,) these ideas are great! 

They’re personal and would look great on any desk or locker at the firehouse!  Such a great way to connect the kids to their favorite firefighter while they are at the station. Perfect for special occasions or just because


Footprint Fire truck


Check out this pin from Sweet and Lovely crafts.  You could easily make a fleet of trucks if you have several children.  Just have them make their own, tape a few pieces of paper together or use the extra large construction paper!  Personalize them as you wish.



Hand Print Firefighters


This great pin comes with all of the step by step instructions to create your own little team of mini firefighters, complete with cute poem.  I’ve actually done this with my own children and its super easy!  Just plan for the fun mess!



Daddy is SMOKIN’


This pin is actually from a ceramics shop, but it’s such a cute idea and easily a DIY gift.  You can use acrylic paint on a while plate or platter (Dollar Tree is a great place for these!) or you can do this on tile, glass or paper.



Hydrant Picture Frame


This picture frame didn’t come with instructions.  It looks like the pinner created this herself and pinned but I could not find any instructions for this.  It looks fairly simple and for those who are super crafty, can be done in a variety of ways.  Even without directions, this was too cute to pass by!

Firefighter Prayer 2

my daddy the fireman fathers day 2015

Another great idea is picking a favorite picture and adding a poem, phrase or prayer. There are sites available for free to create your photos online, save and print.  You can print from home or use a printing service.  These could be in picture frames, turned into magnets or even put on other gifts if your printer can process before the big day!



shadow box

Let the kids help build a Shadow Box like this beautifully displayed art above in this POST.  (You can even let them create a less expensive version on their own with a shoe box!)

Now the question is… which do you choose?!

She is married to a firefighter who was a volunteer for several years, then transitioned into a career fireman the same month they married in 2008, and he is now a Captain at his full-time Department. They have two daughters, have been in the FFW family since 2012 and know marriage takes a lot of work, even when it's in the best seasons.
