Nothing says Fathers Day like a slightly gaudy tie, boxed or wrapped. What are the chances this latest gift will languish at the the back of your Dad's wardrobe with the others, especially if he's not a white collar worker, or a Disney character? Seriously what were you thinking?

Hunt out those long forgotten ties and get crafty, then regift them back under a new guise, crafty, thrifty and Dad probably won't even remember it was his to begin with!

Dad secretly destashed at Goodwill? Pop down to the Reuse Centre and pick up some more, then get snipping, and sewing with one of these great recycled tie projects.

We've scoured the internet for the best of the best recycled tie gifts to suit even the fussiest of fathers.

No excuses this year, he may SAY it's the thought that counts but you know he secretly wants something cool. Go on, treat the old guy that fixed your bike, put up your shelves, gave the death stare to your prom date and drove you to college, he's worth it.
