I made one based on this site
. If you have scrap wood it can be dirt cheap or you can make it out of nicer wood, stain it, etc. You can make the tensioners from stuff at the hardware store or purchase one. Not as 'nice' as one purchased but I'd rather spend the cash on a rod and making my own stand fit the whole building my own rod theme well. However, if your wife is looking to buy a gift perhaps one from a rod building store is best.
