Gifts for guys

I have two guys to buy for this year. One is my 7 year-old nephew, the other is my 20-something boyfriend. I am trying to buy all handmade which means most of my shopping is being done on etsy. However, I find that guys are the hardest to buy handmade for. Here's a few things I've found that you might want to consider for the guys in your life.

Mountain Mama Chichas beautiful but simple old-school shaving sets.

Mariclaro makes cool laptop bags with recycled materials.

The Steam Punk Trunk is where I found interesting but durable keychains made from watch insides.

For the little ones Things 'n Stuff makes toy catapults.

Sticking with a green theme Bottle Bottoms reclaims empty bottle and makes new glasses.

If I had a baby they would totally wear this onesie by We R Onesieful.

Memphis Weaver makes beautiful hand woven guitar and camera straps, plus other cool stuff for you.

These clocks by Pixel This use reclaimed hard drives and bike gears and are perfect for nearly anyone.

I almost forgot one of my favorite shops! Purpose Design makes awesome spice kits for the man-cook.

So go off and buy, or at least search for, the perfect handmade gifts for men in your life. They are out there.

Thank you, Thank you for including my handwoven guitar straps in "Gifts for guys". I just sold the one you posted, so I'm off to weave some more!
