The tool set gift I got my Dad for Father’s Day was heavy and awkward to wrap traditionally, so I bought a small tarp and a pack of colorful bungee cords to act as gift wrap and ribbon! Practical and only cost me $10!

    Great idea! Tarps and bungee cords are so “dad’s garage” too! Perfect!

    You couldn’t have picked a more perfect way to wrap that present.
    Each year, I would get my Dad the same present for his bday; his annual fishing license. He loved it and it was something he could (and did) use for the rest of the year. Miss him.

    Once I gifted my mother a basket of goodies, wrapped in a beautiful silk scarf. She was delighted 🙂

    Such a smart idea! And looks good and festive, too!

    Double present! Or triple! So cool.

  6. That’s awesome, but I have to giggle at the fact that the wrapping was 10 bucks on frugal Reddit 😀

    Very nice.

  7. That wrapping would bring a tear to by father’s eye–a happy, proud tear.

    This is genius! Everyone needs more blue tarps and bungee cords, too!

    Not so frugal but a great idea!

    I don’t know if you have dollar tree down there but we pay 1,25 CAD for the same colour tarp. It is 10×10 I guess.

    This is amazing. If your dad is anything like my dad and my husband (also a dad) — you hit the jackpot with this one!

    That’s awesome. As a dad I can appreciate not wasting money on wrap that I would throw away immediately and instead using it for two useful things.

  17. Not only did you wrap it in the most creative way I’ve ever seen, your dad can re-purpose the tarp and bungee cords as well

    I love this! I once wrapped my dads heavy gift in a large cooler we already owned. Surprise! It’s your cooler!

    That’s hilarious!

  20. rivaking12 says:

    that’s the absolute best way to wrap a pops present, im going to use that!

  21. Wrapping that’s also a handy gift. Now that’s smart thinking. I’m stealing that idea.

  22. Penelopeslueth says:

    Wish I would have thought of that! The kids and I got my husband a rolling tool box, box was huge and I had no way to wrap it. I threw a sheet over the top 😂

    A harbor Freight man, I see.

  24. Such a great idea! Happy Father’s Day to your dad!
