Father’s Day is quickly approaching (Less than a week away now?!) and that leaves some of us scrambling for meaningful gifts. No matter if you prefer special DIY gift or the checkbook just doesn’t have much give, these ideas are great, personal and would look great on any desk or locker at the firehouse!  Such a great way to connect the kids to daddy while he is at the station.

We scoured PINTEREST for the best DIY gifts for all of those fire daddys!  You can click on the heading of each photo to see more, get instructions or pin it for later!


Foot Print 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!



Personalized Photo Gifts

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!
