DIY gifts for men

It’s here! The Holiday gift season.  Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, lets turn our attention to another opportunity for that perfect gift; the handmade item.  We tend to think there are a ton of sites out there that offer gifts geared toward the girls so we’re dedicating the whole post to handmade gifts for guys. You can imagine the look on his face when he learns “you made this!?”

Leather Journal – Guys love to write all kinds of stuff down, so go ahead and gift this stylish leather journal that you create! You’ll just need a swatch of leather and some glue, along with some patience. You can enhance the look with a leather stamp.

Cement Coasters – We like this gift because it is a win for everyone. Guys like the industrial look of these coasters and gals like the fact that a coaster gets some use! This DIY is extremely simple, and it’s a great experience to work with concrete. Who knows, you might just fall in love with polished concrete flooring after this experience.

Guinness BBQ Sauce – This one is great since it’s edible. The flavors of the stout really complement meats such as pork and steak. The recipe is very simple, send your guy off to poker night to pass this gift around! Recipe from The Black Peppercorn -http://www.theblackpeppercorn.com/2012/03/guinness-bbq-sauce/
