Are you struggling to find the right gift for Father's Day this weekend? You are not alone. I know a lot of people who are already asking what would be the best gift for the best dad in the world. What many don’t know is that liquid chalkboard markers could be the answer!

The Best Dad In The World Likes The Little Things

Even right now, I have friends asking me what would be the best gift for a new dad, a retired father or a hardworking pop. At home, when I ask my dad what he wants us to get him for Father's’ Day, he would say he just wants a relaxing day at home. That isn’t much to go on and sometimes I find myself using reverse psychology and would suddenly think of rushing to the store to buy a new screwdriver!

Instead of getting in the car and driving to the nearest electronics store this weekend, you can do something different. Most dads really do want a relaxing day at home with no stress from the kids and family. Which is why the bestest dad in the world only deserves the bestest things.

Why not give him the ultimate survival kit using liquid chalkboard markers?

If you have an extra lunchbox in the garage or an old unused briefcase, then this is perfect! All you need are a few sheets of chalkboard paper or vinyl sheets, and liquid chalkboard markers in dad’s favorite colors. Adhesive chalkboard contact paper are great because it has a strong adhesive but is easy to remove in case you need to reposition the paper on the surface. You do not need to use glue at all! It is a neat tool.

Chalkboard vinyl sheets also work well because it has grid lines at the back for easy cutting and drawing. It is a great alternative if you want to do different types of designs and cut out. You don’t need to use rulers because of the gridlines. What’s neat about this is that it is non-toxic and waterproof! After designing Dad’s Ultimate Survival Kit, don’t forget to fill the box with dad’s favorite items like his favorite brand of beer, coffee mix and sweet crunchy candy bars! If you have kids, little notes and drawings from them are adorable and can be stored in the kit, too!

But maybe you’d like to throw in a beer mug into the Dad’s Ultimate Survival Kit mix? That is not a bad idea! Creating a DIY Best Dad Beer Mug is a perfect accompaniment to the kit.

The first and important thing you need is a glass beer mug, a clean sheet of white paper and liquid chalk markers. Just put the sheet inside the beer mug then take your liquid chalkboard markers in dad’s favorite colors and fill in the design and lettering on the outside.

If you still feel that the Ultimate Father's’ Day Kit is lacking and you still feel that Dad deserves the best day, making the Best Pop In The World Popcorn Surprise is perfect for the dad that wants to put his feet up!

In this case, the idea will only work if you already have his favorite movie prepared. You may already have a cold one and a few snack bars ready but he needs popcorn to go with the home theater entertainment. He needs a popcorn that says he is the best dad in the world!

Using liquid chalkboard markers you can draw on the popcorn box using dad’s favorite colors. On the side, if you really want to make Father's’ Day extra special, you can also make a card with the markers using chalkboard paper! There is nothing better than a small note that says he is the Best Pop In The World.

To make it even more interesting and more of a surprise, you can place cut outs of arrows from the outside leading to the living room. Each arrow can have a word written with liquid chalkboard markers on it. It can read “Follow the arrows! For the Best Dad in the World! Happy Father's’ Day!” (You can make your own words, too!) Make sure the last arrow leads to the table with the Ultimate Father’s Day Survival Kit, DIY Best Dad Beer Mug and Best Pop in the World Popcorn!

Just remember that sometimes dad doesn’t need the latest and expensive items from the mall. There is no need for you to spend that extra cash. All you need is a little bit of imagination and help from the kids.


He would surely love the personalized Father's Day gifts that liquid chalkboard markers can bring! Plus, he gets to see a movie he really wants and put his feet up while enjoying a cold beer and popcorn! Try it now for Father's’ Day!
