He can’t blame his family. He’s a hard guy to shop for. And he will never admit that he thoroughly enjoys a vase of tulips. The problem with these Father’s Day gifts is that his closet floor is becoming more and more catastrophic with all those ties splayed about. It’s time for him to clean up his act and get his ties ordered and tidy. Maybe he might even integrate a few new ties into his standard wardrobe. Below are 14 ways to organize those ties for any type of organizer.
The Shower Curtain Hanger
Shower curtain rings are extremely inexpensive and can be crammed on a hanger, depending on how many you need. No need to remove them each time; the tie will slide right through. I would recommend a sturdy hanger. You don’t realize how heavy ties can be until you’re holding 50.
The Shoe Slots
This shoe hanger might be able to hold about 12 pairs of shoes. Convert it into a tie container, and you’ve got room for over 70 ties. Put it behind the closet door to keep it hidden.

The Bottle Crate
DIYers can let themselves get carried away arranging the size and number of slots from this old bottle crate. Paint it to go with you room and hang it on the wall as a cute decoration. Or slide it in a drawer and out of sight.
The Decorative Wardrobe
Like all your accessories to be displayed? Or maybe you would just like all your ties to be in full view when you change. Add as many hooks to the wall as you need. For a picturesque display, add a frame of crown molding around all the hooks for a decorative effect.
The Clothes Pin Hangers
This is a project your kids can get in on. Add a clothes pin per tie on the side of a shelf or along the bottom of a hanger. They are just as easy to put away as they are is to grab.

Such a great use for wasted wall space. You can use any kind of pole from nice closet rods to cheap and easy PVC pipes. A hundred or more ties will fit with a clear view and easy access to each.

Not the biggest fan of DIY projects? This a great store bought option. The ties slide easily onto the clips, and the rod can be placed on any wall.
The Side Storage
Another store bought option. This shelf can be installed to the side of any dresser. A good way to keep your ties visible and out of the way.
