A Unique Gift for the Guy Who Has Everything

As a gift expert, a common question I hear when it comes to Father’s Day gifts is “What do I get for the guy who has everything?” Lately, when I’ve heard that very question, my quick reply is another question, “Does he have a custom made ukulele?” Didn’t think so.

The “Make Your Own Ukulele Kit” is a very fun and unique gift for the guy you thought had everything. This 10 piece kit is easy to assemble and will take a few hours to complete. You’ll need a few tools and supplies on hand (requires sand paper, glue, craft knife, screw driver- and any paint or decorations). But the result will be a one-of-a-kind masterpiece he’ll love to show off.

Now, there are two ways to play this quirky gift. First, you can give the kit as is. You can let him go to town on this fun DIY project to build and customize his ukulele. He love it. You may have to spring for ukulele lessons.

But if this is a Father’s Day gift, a more fun way to go is to make this a family effort. Have the family help build and decorate the ukulele. I don’t know about you, but if I give my kids paint, a glue gun, glitter and plastic jewels, you’re bound to have a creative masterpiece (and a massive mess) on your hands in no time.
