And if you’re looking for creative, heartfelt ways to celebrate on Sunday, check out these fantastic DIY gift ideas and recipes to bring on the love this Father’s Day.

I’m Nutsz about You!

This nutty homemade idea comes from the creative minds at Yesterday on Tuesday, and we love the idea of filling the caddy with bags of maple-blanketed Nutsz! Shop Nutsz here, or pick them up when you’re out and about this weekend. For all you city slickers, Eataly has an excellent selection of large and small Nutsz. On Long Island you can find them at a surplus of amazing Farmers Markets. Come see us at one of the markets below!

Let’s Play Ball

June is the perfect time of year to get dad tickets to his favorite baseball team, and this is quite possibly the cutest way to package the gift. (idea from Mad in Crafts) Tip: empty a Szauce jar to use in a homemade recipe, then paint the leftover jar :)

Tee Time Cupcakes

Such a simple yet fabulous idea, turn any cupcake recipe into a even more special treat for all the golf-loving dads in your life. Take this recipe base, and top it with green sugar sprinkles as the grass, and crumbled graham crackers as the sand.

Breakfast in Bed

We firmly believe there’s no better way to wake up than to the smell of Szaucy waffles! Trust us, he’ll agree :) Get the full recipe for these decadent Szauce waffles here.
