Gifts for Guys: Thrifty Vintage Father's Day Gift Basket Ideas


I love thrifting for "Guy Things": barware, comic books, robot/dinosaur/zombie toys...they're so damn fun to collect! I had an abundance of man-things in stock and thought I'd try my hand at making a series of vintage father's day gift baskets. Rosaly of Old Skool Junk taught me how to shrink wrap the baskets and I love how they turned out. They're in Southern Crossing Antique Mall this weekend, we'll see how they do!

For more Thrifty Father's Day Gift Ideas see Gifts for Guys: Thrifty Gift Ideas for the Men in Your Life.

What's your favorite thrifty gift idea? I'm always on the prowl for gifts...

    3. Nope, no sales at the antique store. I've moved them around and moved some to the other shop to see what happens. Looks like it'll just take time to move these.

      They weren't listed online, just placed in one of the two shops I sell out of. Sales are sloooow in the summer, as they tend to be universally.

  7. The thickness of the wrapping paper can be a necessary factor to consider for the wrap. If you are just wrapping only a simple layer of paper over the gift, then normally an 80 gsm to 100 gsm (the "weight" of) paper will suffice.Nounours GĂ©ant

  14. In the UK there are numerous gift bin providers - I say providers instead of fashioners as not at all like their American partners, most gift baskets on special in the UK don't have an indistinguishable quality or imaginative style from gift baskets planned by Americans.
