5 Father's Day Ideas From Pinterest That Are Inspiring Us Now (PHOTOS)

It's no secret that we draw a lot of our inspiration from the endless images on Pinterest. This especially rings true during the holidays, when we're always on the hunt for the perfect ways to celebrate. But for Father's Day ideas this year, we pulled together an eclectic mix of boards from some unexpected pinners (with some help from Pinterest's brand new category, the "For Dad" feed)-- and they've got the best selection of gifts we've seen yet.

1. PayPal: Their Father's Day board is a mix of both DIY projects as well as store-bought presents. From what we can gather, these ideas are geared towards hip dads that want the newest and coolest gadgets out there.

2. Pottery Barn: It's all about handmade items for our furniture favorite's We Love Dad collection. Whether the pins are instructions to make them yourself or pre-crafted gifts ready to be shipped out, this board is filled with ideas that have a heartfelt approach.

3. Rebecca's Soap Delicatessen: Her Father's Day Gift Ideas board is full of gift ideas that speak to dads with quirkier styles. From a skull shot glass to Star Wars reusable napkins, this board is for the fathers who are still kids at heart.

4. Lauren Weems: This pinner's Father's Day Gift ideas board caters towards a classic generation of dads who enjoy golf, ties and food. You can't go wrong there!

5. Sophie-Louise Pye: This wouldn't be a proper Pinterest roundup without a collection dedicated to DIY cards. This Handmade Father's Day Cards board is full of charming little crafts that families can work on together.
