Gifts for Guys You Can Make

This is where I get stumped every Christmas or male's birthday.  What can I possibly make for a guy (besides food) that he would appreciate?  I went on a web hunt and found Instructables, a DIY site geared toward men's interests.  Here are some fun things you could do.

First, I found an urban survival kit made from an Altoids tin!  This site also has ideas for other tin kits.

What guy wouldn't like portable hot sauce?  Find instructions at

Next, a bracelet from paracord!  It could hypothetically be used in a survival situation, and it looks very manly.

For manly home sprucing, check out this faux driftwood votive.

Lastly, ignore the fact that this says mother!  This is a fantastic idea (totally doing it here).  Put magnets on the back of Scrabble tiles.  You can play on the fridge or magnetic board.  I have also seen tutorials for covering cookie sheets with paper or fabric, which would make great bases.  So simple and genius!  It comes from Craftster.

Happy crafting and blessings!
