Father’s Day Soda Collection

Here is another Father’s Day gift idea. I love giving gifts of gourmet sodas because people really get into experimenting with the different flavors. (For Christmas I gave my sister’s family a giant crate of 50 different rootbeers–it was a hit.) Most cities will have a specialty soda store where you can buy these, here in California I usually go to BevMo. You can always order stuff online but the shipping can get pricey so its usually better to pick it up in person. (PS – Remember my rainbow soda bar?)

Materials Needed: Wooden Crate, Vintage Sodas

This project doesn’t need any instructions but we found it easiest to take the crate to the soda shop to test how they all fit. And beware, the crate of sodas gets heavy quick!

    I love this idea especially since I’m going through a gourmet soda crush myself. Cost Plus World Market also has a great selection too, it’s where I find all mine. My BevMo is a little far from me.

    We have done this with beer instead for adults.
    But yeah good idea with different sodas, or juices.
    We haven’t got a very big selection of sodas here in Denmark,
    but there is beginning to come a lot of organic, gourmet juices on bottles.

    These photos are irrestible! Love it for a kid’s birthday party that would get adults excited too (but how to keep the kids from drinking all the good stuff?…)

    It’s a very cool gift idea and very simple. It does not cost much. In fact, I’m having my own soda crate idea now. After all, it’s not how expensive the gift you give is. It’s actually the thought that counts. This is a very imaginative idea. It’s not actually good only for Father’s day but for all occasions or even if there is no occasion at all.
