I think men are so hard to shop for. I don’t know about you but in my family, if my husband wants something he will usually buy it for himself. He’s a pretty simple person – and I don’t mean that in a negative way! What I mean is, he doesn’t ask for or want a lot of gifts. He’d be happy with a nice card and a hug.

I find the same thing goes for my brothers, my father, my father-in-law, and any uncles that I’ve ever had to shop for. Gifting is one of my love languages and I just love making amazing gifts for people. I like to tap into my creative side and give gifts that are thoughtful and unique.

It’s fun for me to do. I mean sure, a nice bottle of wine or scotch never really goes out of style, but I’d like to think that homemade gifts are maybe just a little more appreciated than something that you can buy at the store. I also like to make things that are simple and practical!

However, I’ve always struggled with what I can make for the men in life. This is something I have already explored in my post 25 Great DIY Gifts for Men, but then after writing that post I received feedback that some of you guys wanted more DIY gifts for men ideas! So I racked my brain, sifted through some of my favorite bloggers, and rounded up 25 more DIY gifts for men. After reading this, I’m sure you’ll find something for every guy on your list!
