It’s October, that means there are only 11 weekends until the big C word… Christmas! If like me, you prefer to make gifts rather than buy them, then that means starting now. Unfortunately, my full time job gets in the way of crafting all day, every day so every weekend between now and then will need to involve some craftiness to get everything ready by Christmas. The last couple of years I have been horribly disorganised so this year will be different!
I’ll be posting DIY gift lists for different people in your life over the next couple of weeks as inspiration!
Here are my 10 best DIY gifts for the men in your life:
I’ll be attempting this one soon, check out Facebook to see how it goes!
2. The Story of Us:
This one is so good, I pinned it twice… I’ve been saving things to scrapbook for ages so this one might be on the cards for Christmas or possibly our anniversary since that’s in January!
3. Lego Key Holder:
Because organisation is more fun with Lego!
Because literally everything is better with bacon.
For the Comic Book lover in your life. This principle is easily applied to other fandoms/geekiness 🙂
6. CD Photo Cube:
I made this one for my Dad using old mini-disc cases (who remembers mini discs?!)
7. Make him a Nut and Bolts Chessboard:
Does he love chess? Take a trip to your local DIY store to get everything you need.
8. Paracord Lanyard:
This project is the perfect amount of fun for you and cool for him!
9. Grill Rubs:
For the chef in your life, these rubs look great! This tutorial even includes free printable labels. Ikea have some great spice jars for this project.
And finally if you’re strapped for cash, one of the best home made gifts is the gift of food! It’s easy to make it look nice with ribbon or these pretty bags from Lakeland.

Now I’m off to indulge in a Lakeland spree to so I can make chocolates for my extended family!
