You have one week left to go buy your dad a shitty card and a tie he doesn’t need. OR. Be trendy. Make something yourself. DIY is uber-hip these days and you know how Dad likes to keep with the times. Plus, you know, something about love in every stitch or some shit.
-If your old man is balding, knit a hat he can wear with yarn made from your hair. Preferably hair from your head, but feel free to make this project your own.
-Be creatively cliche. Because it’s somehow not cliche any more if you put some kind of clever spin on it. Like, give him a tie…that looks like a noose! FUNNY RIGHT?! He will love it.
-Give him a mani/pedi. A, being metrosexual is totally hip. B, if you do it yourself, the only cost is touching (and smelling) his gnarly old-man feet.
-Ask him what he wants – but then MAKE IT YOURSELF. Example: he wants an iPad. So you find some driftwood and paint apps on it. Super cute, cheap, and approximately as useful as the real thing!
-Call him instead of just texting him. BAM! Soooo 20th century. Don’t worry, retro is always in.
