Forgo shaving creams filled with additives and chemicals and go the more natural route. All it takes is mixing up a few ingredients, and dad's face will feel silky smooth. Who knew shaving oil was so easy to make?
How to make it:
- 1 part grapeseed oil
- 1 part olive oil
- A few drops of essential oil of choice (sandalwood, cedarwood, lavender – whatever dad likes)
Ladies - You can use this too! It works wonders for shaving legs and underarms.
Roasted Cinnamon Almonds:
Still can't believe it's June? Us too, but it's here, and Father's Day is coming up quickly. This is probably the easiest last-minute Father's Day gift on the list. You can help your kids make these treats for the special dad or grandpa in their life, or make them for your own pop. All you need to whip up a batch of these sweet & salty almonds is sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Just sprinkle over the nuts, toss to coat, and bake for an hour.
Picture Frame with Rocks
Hear us out, this DIY Father's Day gift turns out much cuter than it sounds. Grab an old picture frame and transform it into a fun, personalized gift for any dad who loves nature. All you need is paint, smooth rocks, and some super glue.
Do your kids go on hikes with their dad, or maybe they enjoy playing together in the back yard? Have your little ones hunt for small rocks. Set your kiddos up with the superglue, paint, and stones. All they have to do is paint over the picture frame and stick on the rock - it's that easy! After it's dry, add one of dad's favorite photos of him and the kids.
*You can also buy a bag of polished rocks at your local dollar store.
At-Home Espresso Station
