Pizza Roses (image above)
Nothing says “I love you, Dad” like an edible bouquet of these easy-to-make pizza roses. Store-bought pizza dough makes this adorable present totally doable.
Smoky Cola Jerky
The perfect gift for any meat-loving dads — homemade jerky. The best part? You don’t need any fancy equipment for the project. Just start marinating the meat a day or two before you want to give your gift.
Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Bacon Cookies
Get the whole family involved making these sweet, savory and downright delicious bacon-studded cookies for dad.
Paprika-Rosemary Spiced Nuts
Transform a container of mixed nuts into the ultimate crunchy snack. This gift will pair perfectly with an ice-cold six-pack of dad’s favorite brew.

No time to shop? Pantry staples, like cereal, pretzels, molasses and popcorn, combine to make a snack mix with a southern twist that dad will love.
