    20 Crafty DIY Gifts For Men

    I know gender roles are archaic and sexist, but they exist for a reason, right? Even so, the crafts below are for everyone--especially anyone who appreciates handmade gifts, but isn't interested in the frilly or frivolous or traditionally feminine projects out there. But for the purposes of this article, I will be referencing "the men in your life."

    Included are a variety of options for a variety of price ranges and skill sets. If you don't have the funds or the means to thrift it cheaper, use the project as inspiration for something else. If you don't have the skills or know-how necessary ,but your man does, consider it a good opportunity for bonding. Some projects are practical, some playful, some sweet. You know him best, so you choose.
