So everyone on here always panics right before Father's Day so I thought I would go ahead and put up a few ideas I had!  Cheesy Just to help everyone out!  Wink

These are mostly for dads who have physical jobs, are kind of redneck and enjoy being outside.  Grin Cuz that's what my dad is like.

Rice pack - out of manly material cuz he is a construction worker and is sore a lot
Travel soaps made by me - cuz he travels a lot for his job to do installs and needs small stuff to carry around
small picture collage - so he can have a pic of his family while he travels
A redneck wind chime set - with nuts, bolts and screws on it, cuz i think he'd really like it. we once had an antenna made of pvc pipe and beer cans on the end
I guess that's it for now. I think these are good things, but I need a little more. He's crazy so I don't know what else to get. Any ideas?

Hmm....I will just post my question here as to not spam up this board. Okay, so my dad told me he wants a driver (the golf club) for his birthday. There's only one problem...those things are so expensive!!! So, I need to make him something useful, or else he won't use it and will throw it away. He's obviously a golfer and loves math. Any ideas?

You could make him some of those covers that go over his clubs that keep them from getting dusty and wet and all of that. That way it's useful and while not exactly what he wanted, still related to golf, so it should be good.

The rice pack is a good idea. I should make one for my husband but I don't know if he would use it. We spend a ton of money on those back patches, argh.

I love the windchime idea!  My dad is a handyman and I could see him getting a kick out of a nuts and bolts windchime.  Smiley

May I ask what you used as a base (i.e. to hang the things from), and what you tied the nuts/bolts on with?

Thanks!

How exactly would one make a rice pack?

It sounds like a great idea for my dad.

A rice pack is really easy. Just find the material you want to use, sew it like a pillow, leave one side open, stuff it with plain white rice and then sew up the final side. I used some camo material for my dad.

For the wind chimes, I twisted hangers together, several of them to give it a 3-D type look and then hung the nuts and bolts from fishing wire from the flat part of the hangers. He really liked it.

I Love You.  No exaggeration there at all.

My dad is just like that.  He's a construction worker, and about as redneck as it gets.  I'm totally stealing your windchime idea.

Awwww thanks. I'm glad you liked it. My dad loved his. I was very excited. He's so hard to get stuff for that I just wracked my brain and I'm glad he liked it.
