Closed for gift-making. Be back soon.

It suddenly struck me that since Chanukah falls early on the secular calendar this year, that means it's only 2 and 1/2 weeks away (it starts Dec. 5). AHHHHHH. I decided to make everything this year.

Ut oh.

So I've been busy making stuff. Thus far, we have some hair clips half finished, felt green beans done (even though dh insists one looks like a jalepeno), some jewelry put aside, one pattern ready to use, and some definite plans and all the materials for my niece's gifts (which I can't share since her mom reads the blog).

I don't, however, have any ideas what on earth to make for dh. Anyone have any ideas? Please share. I have no clue where to start with guy's gifts.

I know that you have probably already done this, but last year, I made a wedding scrapbook album for our 10th anniversary. (I had a very talented friend do the needle-felted cover.) It's the only handmade gift I've given DH. Oh, beside the horrid-looking afghan I crocheted for him in college! Does he like coffee? Take the girls to the pottery painting place to paint coffee mugs for him. Or, make a t-shirt. Matt still loves the t-shirt I had the kids paint for him last year, and he hinted recently that he wanted more like it.
