    Hello Kim,
    This is a great list for the up coming Holiday season. I am blessed to have a bunch of guys in my life. I am sure that my Dad, Brothers and Hubby would love one of these handmade gifts.

    My favorite is the relaxing hammock. I know my husband will love it. He likes to being outdoors and this would allow him to rest in our garden. I would try making some of the handmade gifts as well. They would be an amazing giveaway for my friends.

    Thank you so much for this list! I made the laptop sleeve for my boyfriend for Christmas and he loved it! Your lists are wonderful. I also like the list with 101 summer sewing tutorials.

    Happy new year!

    Thanks for a great blog!

    This is a great idea sharing website. It is so true that men can be so tough to shop for at times, especially those of us that like to get our own essentials. But ladies, if you follow these guidelines the holiday season will be painless.
