Breaking Bad inspired DIY Father's Day Gift Idea

Breaking Bad Aching Dad Bath Salt Father's Day Gift


Inspired by Breaking Bad, the most brilliant TV show ever made, we've come up with this fun, simple and low-cost DIY Father's Day gift idea.

Given that Dad here is very sporty and can often be found wallowing in a borax bath to ease his aches and pains, I hope that this will not just be a funny gift, but practical too.

I've used herbal muscle therapy soak which I bought online to make this bath salt gift,  but you can pick up a box of Radox muscle soak salts for around £1 in supermarkets and pound shops.

You'll also need a colour printer, some light card, a cellophane bag and a stapler or glue stick and sticky tape.


You can print out the printable label here.

Fill your cellophane bag with the blue bath salts, fold over the top and secure with tape to prevent the contents leaking.

Blue bath crystals

Then cut out your bag topper, fold and secure with glue or staples.

Simple.  Now he can make like Walter (although I'd prefer Jesse).
