since he likes computers you could make one of these frames:


and take like letters off of a keyboard or random computer pieces and put them on there with pieces of monopoly or scrabble (you get the idea) and maybe a felt bird boat or cup of coffee.  i'm sure he'd like that for his desk.

us people are just poems
we're 90% metaphor
with a leanness of meaning
approaching hyper-distillation

Ok I don't know what to make my dad, he's a way important web developer, for a big company. He doesn't have to wear ties to work so thats out. He loves computers, board games, computer games, birds, boats, and coffee. He hates sports, and cars. I've already made him cute little stuffed animals, and drawings, and desk trinkets. Yup. Any ideas??

a felt parrot in front of a computer, on the monitor is scrabble (he's playing it online), there's a mug of coffee next to him and all of this is at a desk, which is sitting in a row boat! Cheesy

You could buy him a boat Cheesy

Or make him a watch cap. Or gloves. Or give him a bunch of rope to practice knots on. Or a water bottle cover. a windbreaker jacket. Dry socks. New boat shoes. A dri-bag. A subscription to a boat-y magazine. A boat-y book. (Just nothing about shipwrecks. Shipwrecks make boatlovers sad)

We "boat" people are easy to please.

BTW, nobody has a "normal dad"  Wink
