Needing help from the wonderfully creative people on this site. I'm looking for Christmas gift ideas that I can make for my husband, dad, and father in law. None of them have any interest in sports or hunting. Ideas???

Scarves, day planner type thing, etched mugs.

I made a Family History scrapbook for my father last year and he loved it.

An assorted box of their favorite treats.

Thanks for the suggestions. Need to get busy on something for them! They're a tough crowd.

I etched glasses for the men last year and made coasters using the tissue paper technique on tiles. This year I am giving them an assortment of canned hot peppers (Jalapeno jelly, pickled peppers, and relish). I will jazz up the jars with the paper and the cricut and make some sort of holder for them. I had an ABUNDANCE of jalapeno peppers this year and had to do something with them! Plus all the men in my life LOVE hot peppers.

Decorated containers of either home made candy or baked treats - especially if they have a favorite that they rarely get.

Even decorated picture frames of the family, kids, grandkids or of themselves as children (if you have access to these) what a nostalgic gift that would make & quite a conversation starter.

If you dabble in vinyl, you could make something with outdoor vinyl for them to put on their vehicle or just a phrase that might say Gear Head or with a biker theme, 4 wheeling etc. These are things my DH is into & loves the idea of being able to have vinyl decals made at his whim.

I might be a little late here, but i came across these well-priced cufflinks that are very trendy and would make any guy happy. You can't go wrong with a pair of cool cuff: http://unicuffs.com/prod...omer-simpson-s-cufflinks

Food items always tend to go over well.

I have created mini albums based on a specific event.

Quillows (pillow/blanket combo - folds up for easy storage).

If they like games/miniatures - altered boxes for pieces.

Coasters, box of simple thank you notes, altered box for small tools.

Something I am working on this year (no idea if it will work yet), item to go on shelf for favorite authors. A type of stand up library pocket almost (maybe shadow box frame) to keep a listing of the books he has in an easy place for the rest of us to read/update when shopping times are around. Hope this makes sense - working on one for a few of the kids as well - there are so many books in different area's they like, I cannot keep track. My goal is a central location (rather than updated emails/texts that I loose) that lists out what titles they have so I don't re-buy them. Yep, I have done that.

The Costco/Sam's size bag/jar of mixed nuts, pecans, walnuts, etc. wrapped in burlap, tied with a simple bow, would be cute. I did this last year as an 'extra' for my DIL, wrapped in a (on-sale) dish towel from her favorite store. It was quite unexpected, but she loved it.BigGrin

Cufflinks, watches & wallets can be one of the best gifts you can give him.
Recently, I purchased great cufflinks for myself from unicuffs.
