A few more ideas........

Love this idea from Martha!! This is a definite need at our house!!
Belt Rack
Make a handsome rack for Dad's belt collection: To attach cup hooks to a good wooden hanger, first drill holes with an appropriate-sized bit. (If you try to screw hooks in with your hands without first making holes, the rod might split.) Space holes evenly, about 2 inches apart; if the screws of hooks are too long, snip off ends with wire cutters before screwing them in.

Also another one I just LOVE!!
Dad's Travel Kit
A box full of tools for the road is a useful gift for fathers who travel a lot. Use a sturdy cardboard box that will fit under a car seat. Cut self-adhesive Velcro into small pieces and attach to a tire gauge, flashlight, Swiss Army knife, compass, and other useful tools. Adhere the matching Velcro pieces to the inside of the box top to hold the tools in place. Fill the box with other travel necessities: maps, a pencil, and a notebook for jotting down directions, all neatly rubber-banded together. A hand-printed card on the front of the box states clearly what's inside: "Dad's Travel Kit."

I love all of the ideas...especially the belt rack. It was fun to see you at Girls Camp last night!

I bookmarked this great idea over a year ago, and just found it again. I put the belt hanger I made with a link to your post on my blog today. Thanks!
