25 Gifts to Make for Men

You requested and now it’s here! I did 25 Gifts to Make for Kids this Christmas and then 25 Gifts for Women, so here you have it-25 Gifts to Make for Men this Christmas! Now, you and I both know that making things for guys is harder than it is for women. In fact, when I searched the internet for ideas I laughed at what some people called “gifts for men.” To me a throw pillow embroidered with His and Hers doesn’t scream “give this to a man!”

I’ve tried to keep these as manly as a can, and I know not all of them are for every man, but hopefully they will get your creative juices flowing!

    I love all of these, I’ve got a conservative, golfer dad, and a very cool, stylish, metrosexual brother-in-law, and I found projects for both.
    I know you joked about the throw pillows, but my 8-year-old and I did make a great one for my dad, PaPaw, who had a favorite leather chair for watching the Golf Channel. I apologize for not having a photo handy, but I’ll add one, promise! Cont’d….

    Pillow 4 a dad/granddad:
    Cut out (2) 6″x12″ rectangles of canvas. 
    Have your kiddo(s) cut a heart from a scrap of burlap.Have them handwrite in pencil on 1 rectangle something like “PaPaw’s Special Places: His Chair and My Heart”. I hand-stitched over the writing in red, top-stitched the heart to one side, added the year in red, as ndmade a simple pillow. The less-perfect the heart & writing are, the more PaPaw will LOVE IT!
