Funky Father's Gifts

I don't get to buy Father's Day gifts because my father is all the way in the middle of no-where and thanks to a wicked step-ma, he doesn't speak to me.  Perhaps then it is understandable that the only envy that I ever feel is Dad envy. I love dads that love their families and work hard to keep everyone happy and safe. Thanks to Hiro I have a wonderful Father-in-law who I love and respect dearly but he too is a gazillion miles away. 

Now, if I did have a dad that I was going to spend this coming Sunday with, I would probably get him one of these:

\\ Sugru

Very useful air-curing, hand -formable rubber compound that can be used to fix, adapt and improve everyday stuff.  Bonds to most things and turns into a strong, waterproof, flexible silicone rubber overnight.

A handy little kit if testers in near packaging inside a metal hinged tin with information pamphlet.

Happy Father's Day all you good dads!


  1. What a great selection - I have no contact with my Dad, and sadly lost my FIL a couple of years ago, but I can nudge my children in the direction of these suggestions, or I might just by them for myself and maybe share with my OH if he asks nicely. Thanks for this.

  2. Cool prezzie ideas. I shan't be partaking of Father's Day either. This has given me the idea that I might start buying myself something for my inner dad!

  3. I love these selections (esp the Sugru and the fly swat). Your dad(s) will appreciate any of these gifts. I'm so sorry to hear about your dad :-( I hope things are looking up for both of you in the future.

  4. I have family envy Sumi - I borrow Daudi's Moms all the time :)
    Yeah Dad's are great and Mom's and Granny's and nice Aunties :)

  5. Some top drawer gifts here, even though it's past the day I can still appreciate them all. I know we're said it before but we do share very similar taste, you'd be a good gift buyer. Pretty cool as you're a female too.

    Me and Hollie were after some of the Sugru stuff, seems pretty handy though I remember is can only be used for a certain amount of time before crumbling.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
