Unique and Easy Homemade Gifts for Father's Day

A personalized pillow case, designed and painted by your child, is a useful and very unique Father's Day gift. It's fairly inexpensive and can be extremely easy to make: purchase a linen pillow case in any solid color, and some fabric paint and markers.

Depending on the age of your child, the designs can be intricate or simple -- from baby footprints and handprints to meaningful messages.

The best method of controlling a movable surface like a pillowcase (or t-shirt for that matter) is to insert a piece of cardboard inside it -- the snugger the fit, the better the hold. No large pieces of cardboard lying around? Get a poster board and fold it up, or use a telephone book.

It's nice to have a matching set, of course . . .

    Of course it is! :-) Every dad sleeps (and probably wishes he could get more shut-eye time).

    If you think it's too girly, remember you can stencil or decorate the case with any design.

    Let's say you block out letters like GOOD NIGHT DADDY (or "Sweet Dreams Daddy!"), you can put fish or sports cars or sneakers scattered around the case -- anything that pertains to Dad's interests.

    Whatever else be lost among the years,
    Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing;
    Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
    Let us hold close one day, remembering
    It's poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
    Let us get back our childlike faith again . Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2010
