Guys Gift Guide | DIY

Well Christmas is less than 2 weeks away, and I don't know about you but that is kind of a crazy idea. Wasn't it just Christmas of 2013? But the biggest thing is that, I don't have all my Christmas presents ready yet, especially the presents for the guys in my life. Maybe it is just my guys, but I find it so hard to find gifts for them that are different but useful, especially gifts that I can make myself.

So today, I am going to show you some of the best DIY projects from Pinterest and projects that I have made before that make great presents for any guy in your life, but you can also adjust some of these and make them work for anyone on your gift list.

Picture with Scrabble Tiles
This is something I made for my boyfriend a couple years ago. It is really simple, the key to it is getting the frame to have a big enough mat that the tiles fit on the side. You can also use words like "Daddy/ Daughter" or "Love/Life" if your names don't work like ours did.

The tiles in this picture are just printed off, you can get the picture to print with the tiles here.

Fun Ornaments
A big thing this year has been ornaments. And there are lots of easy ones out there to make. These are two that I have made in the past. I have some friends that love bacon and this little guy was super easy. Cut two rectangles in red felt, sew on some white to make the bacon fat, and then sew on his little face.

The iron man was fun, glitter ornaments are really fun to make and very simple, anyone can do it. There are lots of good tutorials for glitter ornaments, but this is one that I really like.

                                                                                    52 Reasons I Love You
This is a very heartfelt gift because you have to come up with 52 different reasons why you love someone. You can be serious or more fun with it, or a little of both, it is all up to you.

All you need is a deck of cards, some paper, a hole punch, and a key ring.

What are some other fun gifts that you have made for a guy in your life?
