I always have a hard time buying gifts for my Dad as he has few hobbies, and I hate getting him the same old stuff. But he does have a sense of humor and he likes duct tape. And in trying to come up with an idea for what to get him I was reviwing the standard ideas, including the univeral gift of a tie. Which he doesn't have to wear any more. And some how I thought he would find it amusing to receive a tie made of duct tape. So this is how I did it.
