Ideas Please

In the spirit of my homemade Christmas I think I have everybody figured out except the boys (ok, Men).

Here is my list of stuff so far that I am making and hopefully my Sister's aren't lurking in the shadows. And if they are they just won't be as surprised as I would like. This is random and some is for the kids and some is for the adults.

  1. Aprons
  2. Fridge Magnets
  3. Laptop Sleeves (ok the kids don't have laptops so, there you go)
  4. Hats
I am stuck for the Guys. After all these years (it's been 8 that we have all been together) I am drawing blanks at what to get or do for the guys. It used to be so easy when they didn't have garages full of tools. Even more so that I am trying to make stuff homemade. If anybody has any wonderful ideas please pass them along. If not, I may have to make purchases for these guys.

Why not laptop sleeves? Or do they not have laptops?
Scarfs are in this year for men...?

If you are personalizing the fridge magnets, you can do that for the guys, too. Reminders, sayings, things like that.

I am very impressed at your craftiness!

I have some great men's hat patterns if you want one. How about a travel mug cover? Golf club covers? Slippers? Tool belt aprons with pockets to hold the little bits? M has one and loves it.

I'll keep thinking for you...

I'm making buckwheat neck pillows for some friends (men included).

Scarves also make good gifts...especially stripy scarves! Can't get enough of those.
