Father's Day Idea: Bow Tie Wrap
Source: Martha Stewart Living, June 2005
Instead of gift-boxing a tie for Dad this year, why not tie a gift box? Bow ties fit around many small gifts, and both the traditional and pretied kinds will work. If Dad wears bow ties, a new "bow" can be an added present. If he prefers neckties, an inexpensive vintage bow tie can be used just for fun.

Tie the bow around a gift box or two. For a fancier look, dress a wrapped box with ribbon before adding the tie.
For a bottle of wine, wrap the length of a pretied bow around the middle a couple of times. This will tighten any slack, letting the tie's smallest setting catch.
