Crafty Gifts to Make For Your Boyfriend
It can be tricky to know what to make for your man. And you might worry how he'll react to your homemade gift. Will he appreciate your efforts, or will he be unimpressed?
Men are much more sentimental than you imagine. They may project a tough exterior, but actually they're not so different from us.
So don't hold back. Let your creative side loose, and show him how you feel about him and how special you think he is.
Want to make a gift that keeps on giving? Make a collection of dates to have over the coming year together. Or fold a romantic love note telling him why he's so special to you.
Want to make a more practical gift? A paracord lanyard or bracelet is so easy to make and they look fantastic on, great for the outdoors-loving guy.
For the artistic or poetic types, make them a journal for keeping track of their thoughts or sketches, or make a book of the lovely times you've had together.
If you want to make something for their home or college room, these next few ideas might suit. Make some fun coasters based on their favourite comic characters or hobbies. I love these star wars bounty-hunters coasters! Or make a simple paper star lantern - this gift packs flat so is a great homemade boyfriend gift idea to post!
And for the boyfriend far away, a homemade hot water bottle cover to keep them cosy when you're not there is an easy gift to sew. And for the more quirky, make a pair of his and hers grass heads to grow on their window sill.
