    What about those fathers that dont golf, or have a PC, dont wear ties or drink beer? The mechanic that already has every tool known to man x2! The ones that mess around in the garage, play in the mud? No one ever has a solution for them :( Gift Card again I suppose.

      I have that problem too with trying to come up with things for my dad so made a gift basket of homemade treats that he likes. We’re from texas so I started with the BBQ theme and made him 2 different bbq sauces (one with whiskey and one regular), and a chipotle spice rub. I also made bacon candy, a couple popcorn seasonings and a few other candies I found on pinterest. If you make any food just be sure to print the recipe with it so he (or you) can make it again if he likes it. I also made the modge podge coasters using a map of texas and cut out a few of his favorite places.

    handmade gifts always are better than usual ones, at least I prefer to receive handmade gifts.

    Would you mind if our website create a portuguese version of your list of 101 handmade gifts for men?

    anyway, I really loved your list!

  7. says

    Well, these are really very beautiful and useful handmade gift ideas for men. It is always tedious to decide about gifts for men, but your post has helped girls and women to decide on the best gift to be given to their loved one.
