Whenever I give gifts I love to think of ways to give things that I’ve either made myself or a local vendor who has made something beautiful with his or her hands. Etsy.com is usually my first stop for handmade gifts and gift-making ideas. Even though Etsy is truly an international sensation, I can go there to shop local as well. You simply type in your town and peruse the many talented artisans right in your own backyard. Here Dad and Grad ideas that I found in my zip code. Check out your LOCAL artisans HERE.

The The I-Neck (I-Pad2 Necklace – Hands Free Device)
Here are just a few of the funny and suggested uses for this actual -Pad case by ChainCrafts on Etsy :
The I-Neck has a multitude of uses, both practical and insanely impractical, here are just a few scenarios:
- Not sure if you’ve told everyone at your office that you just got your new I-Pad2? Wear it in your I-Neck to notify everyone in the most subtle and classy manner possible!
- Are you at the airport, suitcase in one hand, coffee in the other and you need to check your itinerary? Keep it close at hand by hanging it from your neck!
- Store images of neckware on your I-Pad2 and with the I-Neck… you’ll always have the right tie for the right occasion.
Great advice for Dads and Grads, this....
