DIY Scratch-Off Card
Surprise Dad with a DIY scratch-off lotto-style card with prizes, such as a free car wash, breakfast in bed and a free pass from mowing the lawn. He'll appreciate the day off.
Leather Valet Tray
Use an old frame and upcycled leather to provide Dad with a stylish place to keep his keys, change, jewelry and other valuables at hand. Give it a personalized touch by monogramming it using stencils and a permanent marker.
Give Dad a break and serve him his favorite drinks on a stylish bar cart. To make this, sand down an existing cart then apply two to three coats of the paint color of your choice to the entire cart. Add painter's tape to the sides of the cart, and apply two to three coats of a different color of your choice to the cart's tray. Let dry, then fill it with his favorite libations.

If your favorite guy is the techy type, surprise him with a decoupage iPhone case. Place a plain white case on the back of a comic book page or a page from one of his favorite books, and trace around the case and camera hole. Cut it out using an X-Acto knife. Brush Mod Podge on the back of the paper, and stick it on the case. Coat with layers of Mod Podge, letting dry between each layer.
