Stumped on what to get your dad this Father’s Day? He probably has enough ties to dress an entire corporation, so why not get creative with his gift? These DIY handkerchiefs are the perfect way to help him stand out from the crowd. Not only will he look super stylish sporting a one-of-a-kind hanky, but he’ll love that it’s personalized (by you) with his favorite hobby. We chose a sailboat for the sailing enthusiast and a football helmet for the sports fan. Now he’ll finally have something to pair with all those ties!
