Somewhere out there is a tie-loving father who anxiously awaits mid-June every year knowing it will mean an addition to his collection.  But he’s not my dad.  The last time I saw him in a tie was my wedding, and as soon as the ceremony was over he quickly removed it.  In my wedding photos you can easily spot him at the back of the crown, collar open, wearing a baseball cap.  No, my dad isn’t much of a tie wearer.  He does, however, appreciate tongue-in-cheek humor (and snack foods), so this might be a more appropriate necktie-related gift for him.  Inspired by an idea from Martha, the ladies over at Eighteen25 put together these cute tie boxes and filled them up with some of dad’s favorite munchies.  Now that’s more my dad’s style!  [how to make Father’s Day tie boxes]
