1. Hands Down DIY Frame Sign
He's the best dad — hands down! Etsy's shop TheWhimsyCompany sells an adorable little kit that you can put together in a jiffy, and the finished product will have him feeling like the MVP that he is.
The seller provides acrylic paint, a paintbrush, a frame and a sign that has the message "Best Dad Hands Down." You can swap out the word "Dad" for anything you would like in case you call him "Papa," "Grandpa" or anything else. Once it arrives, you can simply have your kids dip their hands into the paint and press them onto the sign. On the bottom, you can add a carved-in name of your choice that will be added prior to its delivery so it's ready to go.
The Hands Down DIY Frame Sign is available on Etsy.
2. Dad Gift Set
Does your dad like to stay organized? If so, he might adore this sweet gift set sold via Etsy. It has a rugged look, can be personalized and holds his phone, wallet, rings, watch, keys, glasses and miscellaneous items all in one place.
The top of the wood block has an engraving that says "Dad's Stuff," and many buyers usually add their own message. Initials will be placed in the bottom left corner of the dock, and a word or name will be placed in the top or middle section. There's a small cutout in the back of the dock where some people place their coins, lighters, pens or other items.

Amazon's shop BGYVNU has a darling frame inspired by the super dad in your life. It includes your favorite movie heroes, including Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Batman, Captain America and more. You can buy the four or eight superhero pack, and it can be hung on a wall or placed on a desk.
Another bonus to this purchase is that you can freely sign and personalize the phrase "You are our superhero" with the name of the person you love. The seller makes each frame from scratch and strives to ensure the product arrives to you intact. If the dad you know is a Marvel enthusiast or a comic book connoisseur, this might be a winning choice.

Once it arrives at your front door, unpack and add your favorite spirit, juice or tonic. Afterward, refrigerate it for one to three days.

The seller will add a customizable penny with a child's name to your key chain. You can choose pennies from the year 1950 to 2021, but if you don't specify a year, you will get a modern one. "Aluminum is a great alternative to stainless steel. It will not tarnish or change colors and has a lighter weight than stainless steel," the seller points out. It usually ships within two to three days, so it will arrive quickly.
