Unique Personalized Father's Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day Gift Ideas from Zazzle

In 2015, Father's Day is the 21st of June, which might seem like a while off, but it's actually only 22 days away. If you want to order your dad the perfect, personalized gift, now is the time. All these gift ideas from Zazzle are printed on demand when you order them. Here are some of my favorites.

1. For the seafaring, boat-loving, yacht captain sailor type of dad: a personalized captain can koozie to keep his beer cold while he sails the seas. Easily add your dad's name to the anchor:

2. For the Mad Men loving, cool 50s / 60s mid-century modern retro kind of dad: a minimalist clock in the classic atomic starburst style. You can even click "customize it" and add a monogram or change the background color if you like:

3. Father's Day comes only a couple weeks before 4th of July. This shirt is the perfect gift for the dad who loves fireworks and beer. It says, "Fireworks Expert: I drink the booze and light the fuse." Add your dad's name or choose to print it without a name:

4. For the dad who loves man's best friend: a custom dog bed for his favorite pooch. This blue dog bed has paw prints all over it and a bone where you can add the name of your father's favorite companion:

5. For the chef dad who is a fan of Breaking Bad, this funny parody apron has a muffin and the words Baking Dad: I am the One Who Cooks.

6. For the wild west dad, personalize his man cave with this cool set of six custom saloon drink coasters:

7. For the military or hunter dad, make his ride extra special with these green and brown camouflage car mats:

8. Does your dad home brew his own beer? Give him his own brand with these customized bottle labels.  Specify the type of beer and add your dad's photo.

9. For the dad who dislikes social media, this funny gel mousepad has a picture of a carrier pigeon and the words, "In my day, if we wanted to communicate through a twitter-bird, we wrote a note and stuck it on a pigeon."

10. For the gambling, card-playing dad, this cool watch with a card suit design. The art-deco style numbers are white on the black and red hearts, diamonds, spades and clovers. Add your dad's name in red.

11. For the dad with a sense of humor, this funny novelty drink flask. It's made to look like a vintage snake oil advertisement.

This is only a small sample of the 52 hand-picked gifts in the Father's Day Collection.  CLICK HERE to see all 52 items, from funny greeting cards to retro neckties, camo dartboards, pop art phone cases, wine cellar cheeseboards, zombie shirts and coffee shop posters.

Personalize Your Dance Studio with a Custom Wall Poster


I haven't added many designs to the ClogDance Shop lately, so I've been working on it this week. One new design works for many forms of dance, not just clogging.  It's a custom dance studio poster with a retro look. There are various versions of it. Here are a couple examples: the pink striped and the light blue.

On the product page, all you have to do is use the easy template fields to fill in your dance studio name and a couple more lines of text at the bottom - or press "Customize It" to change fonts. 

A vintage 1920s woman dancer done in stencil surrounds the words "Dance Studio." She's doing a modern freestyle jazz type dance, waving a long scarf. These posters are cute for any time of dance: ballet, tap, swing, belly dancing, clogging, salsa, ballroom, and more. Whatever your passion, you can personalize to fit it.

These posters would make a great gift for a dance teacher, too.
