Finding the perfect gift for my handy dad!

You can check out what Evette is doing by joining her facebook page or following her on twitter!

So this morning I was a guest on the Today Show with Hoda and Bethenny Frankel (my Everyday with Rachael Ray backyard BBQ buddy) standing in for Kathie Lee.

You can check out a link to my Father’s day gift idea segment here:

Sadly, two of my most favorite-ist gifts were cut off at the end of the segment. Major bummer…

But here they are, both of them…shh, they’reĀ  what I am getting for my own father, perfect for any handy dad!

Magwear Magnetic Wristband $18

This magnetic wristband uses a ridiculously strong magnet to hold most hardware, tools, and other metallic objects over your wrist. Perfect for working on ladders, under cars, in crawlspaces, hanging pictures, sewing, or in any other situation where you don’t want to drop your stuff!

I don’t know how I ever assembled Ikea furniture without one!

Platypus Designer Duct Tape $9.75

Doesn’t get much cooler than this! It makes the world’s most versatile tape stylish and fun. Perfect for repairing clothes, making wallets, decorating shelving, fixing drumsticks, and thousands of other uses. Seamless pattern in both directions. Tearable,cloth-backed, adhesive tape. Weatherproof. Each roll is 32′ by 2″.

I love this because it will remind me of every little repair my dad makes, even years later!!

You can buy both of these at or from

    Hi–I am the designer of Magwear and the Designer Duct Tape. I just wanted to say how amazing and sweet I think Evette is for following up the Today Show segment with this blog posting. Our products were cut off from the segment, and Evette took a personal interest in getting the word out anyway. Thanks, Evette, you’re the best!

    I am totally getting the Magwear for both my father and my father in law. Both of which are always helping put something together, take something apart, fix or upgrade something. And I’m laughing right now thinking of both of them saying “where’d those screws go?” never again!!!
