This is my favorite: Beer Soap (don't worry if you don't know how to make soap, this one uses ivory soap) with olive oil, oatmeal, vanilla and the guys favorite, BEER! I was thinking of how to package it and if you don't want to make cute labels like this one, then I thought you could patiently peel the labels off the beer bottles and wrap them around the soap bars. I really can't think of a guy on my list who wouldn't want one.
knitted beer sweater (don't worry if you are a crocheter, I wrote a pattern for a beer cozy and as soon as I find my patterns notebook I will post it at Crunchy Crochet)
one looks really cute but manly and here is a different variation.
When you have an Ipod, it is good to have a place to keep it... tada!!
Here is a great gift and also a great recycle project, now come on are you still trying to tell me store bought is better, where would you find something this unique?
You could call this an ibook!! Very cute huh!
Another good idea: my husband is a neat freak and his car is always spotless, if your gift recipient loves a neat car then this gift is for him, if not then maybe he really could use a car trash bag even more. Finnyknits makes this trash receptacle look good and you could use whatever fabric, you could even make it with a sports fabric or logo.
Of course the easiest way to go with the men folk is right to the stomach. You could make a basket with beef jerky, cookies, treats but I thought of an even better thing to include in your basket... chocolate covered bacon, yum!!! As my daughter looked on with disbelief in her eyes and my hubby looked on with love in his eyes I knew this had to be something good. Here is the recipe This treat is so easy and I can't wait to eat, um I mean give this to my own guy.
I was pretty much on my own for this guy challenge but my hubby threw a few more ideas my way:
Embroidered hankys, Embroidered boxers (apparently Poppa says they like anything with their name on it)
Crocheted beanie or ski cap (there are so many free patterns for this one I will leave the googling to you)
Old t-shirts quilt.
Car wash set
Oh, I forgot one to go with the beer soap, this is another genius but oh so simple, why didn't I think of that project from kootoyoo. An embroidered soap saver bag. The way this one is made it is done to look like a tea bag but I would embroider the recipients name on the tag instead (you do it however you like)
Alright, this should keep you busy.
