The Vintage Man Gift

"For the man that's hard to buy for" is misleading, as it implies that some men are NOT hard to buy for! Here's an idea for a manly man gift: go to your parent's house, steal tools from the garage that are 20 to 60 years old, and create an assemblage from them, using an old parts manual and vintage ads for background. This example shown (tools stolen with permission) is for sale at VintageScraps.etsy.com

Great idea - the problem is, the man I'm trying to find a gift for is the one who OWNS the old tools! I don't think he would like it if I stole them from him, then gave them back :P
