Today I’d like to share some easy DIY gift for men that you can make for all the guys in your life.
I’ve heard many people say that they find it difficult to think of gifts to buy for guys. This is true for me as well, especially if I go looking for a gift for my dad. When we think of gifts, we usually think of a specific item to buy. But what do you get for someone who already has everything? Or for someone who you perhaps don’t know that well yet?
They’re easy to make, versatile and can make the perfect gift for just about anyone on any occasion
Below I’ve rounded up some easy DIY gift ideas for men to help you with some inspiration.
And if you’re looking to make a gift for a special someone, remember you can get creative and add whatever you want. My hope is that you can use some of these ideas and personalize it to fit with whoever the lucky guy is. If you do happen to create a handmade gift, let me know in the comments down below, I’d love to hear how it turned out!
1. Geo Cufflinks
Even though cufflinks are pretty old, they’re an easy little gift you can make for your dad or baby daddy this year. they must have ONE shirt that needs ’em right?! these little babies are so easy to make that I’m posting a whole other cufflink DIY tomorrow!
2. Wooden Bow Tie
It is always so hard to try to think of handmade Christmas presents for the guys in my life. But today’s project is the ultimate gift for a fancy lumberjack… or any guy that wears bow ties. I, unfortunately, don’t know too many guys that will wear bow ties – but you better believe that every single one I know that does wear them will be getting one of these for Christmas this year!
3. Beard Oil
The hair on our guy’s faces needs attention too. And while shampoo, conditioners, and facial cleaners help, a hydrating, all natural beard oil is a fun alternative. I used Grapeseed oil and Vitamin E in this easy beard oil. These are always great to have on hand if you like to make your own skin and hair care products. Add a few of your favorite essential oils (my new favorite is the lime I included in this recipe) and present to your guy. It smells so good you might find yourself using a bit to hydrate the ends of your hair as a refresher!
