5 Homemade Gifts A Guy Will Love
Looking for a hand-sewn gift for that special guy in your life? Here are five ideas that are certain to please even the most discriminating man.
Fleece blankets are easy to put together, and their soft cuddly warmth is enjoyed by everyone, even guys. These comfy blankets make great TV throws for watching the Sunday afternoon football game. Make your guy a fleese throw in his favorite team's colors and he'll be sure to use it for years to come.
Remote Control Couch Caddy
A hand-made remote caddy is a welcome gift to any guy who constantly loses the remote control. It keeps everything easily within reach and cuts down on the stress that comes from the frantic search of cushions and furniture. There are lots of free patterns available online that can be made in a short amount of time.
Grain Pain Relief Pillow – Cold Neck Wrap
This gift requires little in the way of work but pays off big in comfort and relief. Simply sew a long narrow envelope of fabric and fill it with rice, or fragrant lavender and flax seed. Once heated, it molds comfortably around your guy's neck to ease aches and pains, plus it can be easily stored and reheated whenever the need arises.
If your guy is sensitive to the heat, try a water activated neck cooler. Sew a bandana together and fill with inexpensive AquaGems, Watersorb or another type of water absorbing polymer crystal. This cooling neck scarf will keep him refreshed when working outside or exercising.
PJ Bottoms are comfortable and relaxing whether they are used to lounge around the house or to stay warm and cozy in bed. They can be made of soft flannel or cool breathable cotton and are always a popular and appreciated gift. PJ Bottoms are so easy to sew, you might consider making yourself a matching pair. Why should he enjoy all the comfort for himself?
Velcro After-Shower Towel
A Velcro After-Shower Towel is a simple gift that will be appreciated by the men in your life. Choose a fluffy towel that is wide enough to fit above his hips and long enough to reach his knees then add a large patch of Velcro to hold the sides together. Guys like the security of a slip proof cover-up that leaves their hands free for other grooming tasks.
If you’re searching for a one-of-a-kind Christmas Gifts, Anniversary Presents or Birthday surprises that really show you care, there’s nothing like a hand sewn gift.
