Dad Who Loves Books

Wooden Bookmarks are so timeless and classic, and fantastic for gifting a Dad who loves to read. Cut them out on your Cricut, then swap the elements with other colored woods for beautiful inlaid details.

Another bookmark idea, because can you really have too many? These Engraved Leather Bookmarks are even easier than the wooden ones, and are so much more meaningful than a store-bought gift.
