Handmade Gift Ideas: For Him

December 12, 2011 - Filed under Acccessories, Christmas, How-to, Inspiration

Lets face it… when it comes to giving handmade, girls are easy. It’s the men on the other-hand that are a little more difficult to make for. But, never fear, we’ve got some great gift ideas you can make for the special men in your life.

Handmade Gifts For Him

1. Bacon infused Vodka: I don’t know a man alive who doesn’t like bacon. Combine that with booze and you’ve got a winner on your hands.

2. Bay Rum Aftershave: Give your man a manly smell with this Bay Rum Aftershave. Get the recipe here.

3. Mustache Etched Pint Glasses: These would make a great gift for the beer lover on your list. Check out this tutorial on how to etch glass to see just how easy it is.

4. Beef Jerky: Another classic manly gift. Package it up in a nice jar and you’ll surely put a smile on your guy’s face.

5. Bicycle Brake Clock: Does your guy love mountain biking and all things out doors? Why not make him this bicycle brake clock for his office so he can count down the hours till he can hit the trails.

6. iPad Sleeve: A handmade iPad Sleeve doesn’t have to be cutesy or girly. Use rugged and durable fabrics like wool and leather to create a sleeve that’s functional and masculine.

7. BBQ Rubs: Does your guy love to grill? Here are some easy recipes for yummy rubs, complete with downloadable labels.

8. Black & Tan Beer Soap: No lavender and rose petals here… this soap is all man.

9. Typographic Coasters: Skip the lace and doilies in favor of cork and plywood with these typographic coasters.

10. Screen Printed Tie: Spruce up a plain tie with unique screen printed designs like these ones from Etsy seller 20twenty. Or check out this screen printing tutorial to learn how to make your own.

    Oh, that’s a myth that it is difficult to find gifts for men. If not overcomplicated, there are lots of things in hardware shops men would be happy with.

    These listed here are, hmm, a bit unusual. But will do, these too 🙂

    Hi James. This site is dedicated to handmade gifts, not things you can buy in a hardware store. It can be a bit tricky to make something homemade for the men in your life, as traditional crafting such as knitting, and sewing can be a little girly at times. We’re always looking for suggestions on handmade projects that are a little more manly and DIY.

    You are spot on about the Bacon Infused Vodka. I think I would rather have that gift instead of any “store-bought” gift. We have infused vodka with blueberries, but never bacon. I even use bacon salt. Thanks for the great idea.
