  • father's day

    are you making anything special for father's day (for your own or for sale)? i seem to be having a rush on cufflinks!

    is it me, or is it harder to make things for the guys?

    I find men are always difficult .....to buy for! LOL.

    I'm not surprised you've a run on your cufflinks, they are gorgeous.

    I'm look for some nice fabric to make a tie out for DH and my youngest boy is going to cover a plain page A5 book for his Dad. Eldest boy will get him some chocolate!!

      I'll be making a card for my dad (and my dad in law I expect!) but I'm not giving a gift this year. My dad can be a miserable bugger.....

          My Dads birthday is a few days before Fathers Day so I usually get him something bigger as a joint pressie.

          I make photo frames and plaques etc for Fathers Day gifts and list them on E-Bay and they always fly out, will put some more on over the weekend on a 3 day listing or something. Always do some for Grandads too. Would actually say that and Mothers Day are the busiest times on E-Bay for me!

              Don't quote me but I think it is the 17th June.

              My dad will get a card and a bottle of whiskey (yeah pure dead original). He is a bugger to buy for - what do you need - nothing - what do you want - nothing - really helpful!!!

              Cheers.

                Cufflinks went well for me too last yr...always a good seller. . .just made some platinum ones

                Made my Dad one of my new garden sculptures...forged steel with my glass....he has had his eye on one for some time so think he will like it.

                Think Dads are hard to buy for but mine has green fingers so anything to do with gardening and im in extra gold points for me

                Mind you - if I made him an apple pie and wrapped it he would be just as happy. . . clotted cream or hot with ice cream? mmmmm

                  There all the same Lisa....my dad asked for anything garden wise last yr..anything green he said!!
                  So I got a bag full of smarties and sorted out the green ones and filled an empty smartie tube with them and gave him them!!!
                  Well, they were green!

                    Wow!

                    Zebra, just had a look at your website. I want to order it all, I think it might be time to speak nicely to my husband and his credit card!

                        Well, its just my dad so its all my effort into that and the kids will make him a card each at Nursery so plenty of glitter and sticky bits!

                        I've had a really good run this last week on Fathers Day Cards to the point that the one I was saving for my dad got sold not sure how I managed that, but looks like I'll have to make him one!!

                        Cufflinks?.... My dad is not that kinda guy, but my brother has some lovely suits (due to his job) and mixes in some very exclusive circles (again job), so I think cufflinks for Crimbo...

                          I think Fathers day is much more fun when the children are younger...mine used to love all that glue-glitter and sticky stuff.....Dad looked like a glam rock star after opening the cards!

                          Hubby not into cufflinks - so made him a funky dish to hold all his loose change/keys etc
