gift picks: (no.3) hooray for guys
Guys* are challenging to shop for! Especially if you're trying to focus on handmade gifts. It's hard to find/make things that they'll actually use, but it IS possible (like the etsy tie & cuff links for my bro). I try to balance handmade with practical & fun, and also think that getting gifts such as tools is a great way to encourage handmade projects of their own.
[1 star wars visual dictionary, 2 lego storm trooper hand carved stamp (love this!), 3 corded drill, 4 black dot skinny tie, 5 cook with jamie cookbook, 6 oak wood cufflinks, 7 surround sound gamer headphones, 8 rite in the rain notebooks]
PS. Q uses those all-weather notebooks for the military and I love to "borrow" them.
*speaking of guys - happy birthday, DAD!
