Father's Day combinations

Great gift ideas for dads who love to grill, play golf and more.
 
For the father who loves to grill
This design is perfect for the dad who considers grilling an art form. By combining mesquite chips, a wood-handled spatula, meat fork and tongs with an attractive and bright yet masculine collection of Gerberas and birch branches, an eye-catching and useful gift is created. The tools also could be tied to the arrangement with a piece of raffia to make this gift easier to transport.

HOW TO: Evenly space three magazines around a prewrapped miniature rose plant. Secure the magazines in place with a large rubber band, and cover the rubber band with ribbon, making an attractive bow on the front.

MATERIALS: Gerberas, birch branches and cylinder vase from favorite suppliers; wood chips and grilling tools from the outdoor department of your store.
 


 

 

For the father who loves to play golf
By customizing an ivy plant for the golf lover, a personalized and useful gift is created. Not only will the recipient have an ivy plant perfect for his home or office, but the bag of golf balls is sure to come in handy the next time he heads out to play 18 holes.

HOW TO: Wrap an ivy plant with the sports page from a local or national newspaper that is “sandwiched” between two sheets of clear cellophane. Glue two golf balls to golf tees, and add them to the plant as you would a pick. Set a bag of golf balls into the plant.

MATERIALS: potted ivy plant from favorite supplier; golf balls and golf tees from local sporting goods store.
 


 

 

For the father who loves cars
By beginning with a package of Armor All Protectant Wipes and adding bright florals, an unusual yet attention-grabbing design is assembled that would be a prize trophy in the eyes of a car lover. Consider shrink-wrapping a second container of wipes, a chamois or a package of air freshners to the design for an added gift.

HOW TO: Empty the container of wipes, and rinse it out thoroughly. Add floral foam and flower food solution, and arrange carnations and lilies into the foam. Insert one wipe through the hole in the lid, then pick the lid into the design.
