I know I’m not the only one who struggles to find a gift for the men in my life, and I’m definitely not the only one with a DIY spirit. I’m particularly fond of giving DIY gifts to DIY people. I feel like it is speaking their language, and they appreciate it more because of the work that went into it. In that way DIY gifts for men are some of the most sentimental – without being overtly sentimental. Plus, handmade items as gifts are often custom and special, so you never have to worry if they already have one!
All of the above is why I made my first collection of 12+ Husband Approved Gifts for men. It has been extremely popular, and I’ve already exhausted all the DIYs on that list for the men in my life. Some I made verbatim from the talented crafter’s tutorials. Others I did spin offs of. It has been a very rewarding experience sharing my handmade work with the men I love.
So, I’ve decided to curate a new list. All of these items are DIY (some easier than others) and create lovely gifts for the guy (or gals too!) in your life. Just in time for Christmas, most of these DIY gifts for men are low cost and all of them are special and unique. Not a fan of ties and socks for Father’s Day? Don’t want to be the 14th person to give your hubby a tin of peanuts for Christmas? Check out the list below!
Here it is! A perfect list for when a DIY Sugar Scrub just won’t do.
There are at least 4 items here that I’m planning on trying this year, and several I can see trying when I have more time next year. I can’t wait to get my hands working on something special for hubby!
