If you make a cd and if you have a cd/tape player in one you can make the cd into a tape. Just play the cd and push down play and record on the tape deck.

I know this sounds like what 3rd graders are recommended to make for their parents, but how about just a really nice homemade card with a long, hearfelt message from you in it? You could make it an awesome 3-D homemade card, like with glitter or little plastic figurines from a craft store, or make a collage out of newspaper cuttings/magazine pictures. What he'll appreciate the most, of course, is your personal note... like, "I'm glad you're my dad, I love how I can always go to you for English help" or whatever, if it applies... You could look at it this way, many teachers get tons of gifts for Teacher Appreciation Day or Winter holidays, but what they really appreciate most is a meaningful letter, because it won't break or clutter up their already full houses (although gift certificates can be great for them, too!)

Also, what about making a coupon book? I've made these before and know tons of other people do, too. You could make a few coupons for things like "A walk together" or "A homemade dinner made by you for me." Chances are, he'll be glad to spend more time with you or glad that you thought of him, so what you get isn't as important as the thought behind it. Good luck!

Bake him some cookies with iced msgs on them, or like above, a meal.

Write a poem, anything that you've had to have tanken time over or thought about would be good.

If you're at all crafty you could make him something -- my father's getting a hat I'm knitting. Not such a practical gift since it's currently insanely hot out but he'll enjoy it this winter.

I took my dad to see Bruce Almighty. He enjoyed it. And I got something out of the deal.
