I'm pretty much making everyones gifts this year.  However, I have an uncle that I'm completely at a loss for.  I'm extremely broke, so I need something that's cheap, fast, and easy.   Here's the info:

    * What's the occasion?  Christmas
    * Relationship to you - Uncle
    * Gender - male
    * Age - 46, I believe.
    * Likes dislikes - I don't really know.
    * Hobbies - He likes classic rock music, cars, tattoos, booze, gambling,  things of that general nature.
    * Previous gifts - I've never even got him anything for Christmas at all, he's usually not around.
    * Style - Rough, maybe?  He's a carpenter/ex-biker/rock guitarist.  He likes a lot of things that are similar as to what I'm into, but the things I would make for me are not gender appropriate for him. (IE. Crazy, rock star style, studded pinup bag)

He's a very gruff guy.  He's a real sweetheart, but has a REALLY rough exterior.  What do you guys think?  I know whatever I make him, he'll say he loves, but I want him to mean it.

Does he wear bandanas?  You could customize your own bandana.  What about painting on some shot glasses or highball glasses.

Painting or etching shot glasses or highball glasses is a great idea.  sublime Stitching has great old school tattoo patterns, maybe make him a pillow case?  Every man loves food, so maybe bake him his favourite cookies.  A mixed CD of classic rock.  I bought The Harley Davidson Road Songs collection from Walmart, it's a great compilation.  I'm sure if you googled it you could find the song lists and you could just download them.  How about one of those magic bag things that have rice or corn in them that you nuke for 2 minutes, I'm sure he'd love it for after work or a long ride.  Scarf, toque, gloves or mittens.  That's all I can think of right now.  Good luck!

I'm a new mom to my beautiful baby girl Rhaevyn, born June 12th, she keeps me super busy.
