Ok. I'm at a loss. I stenciled him a tee last year that had the front of a jeep on the front, and the back of the jeep on the back. He was on a jeep kick. This year, there's really nothing he's fascinated with. He likes to tinker around and fix stuff, or chop trees, or mow the lawn. Stuff like that. He's semi crafty - he made a mosaic of a light house/beach which was cool, he painted some benches fancily, we'll just say, he never calls someone to come fix something because he can do it by himself.
I don't know if anyone will have any ideas, but, whatever you'd like to add you may. Smiley
Oh, he's very witty and wise as well.

If he builds or designs stuff, or likes to write, you could bind him a special book for his ideas and sketches

We've all seen the pegboard that people put in their garages with little white outlines of tools to show where certain tool are supposed to hang?? What if you did something like that, but kool, with bright colors and sparkly metalic finishes?

Or a really cool tool box. I started sewing recently; My wife found a little pocket sewing kit at a garage sale and bought if for me as a joke. I loved it.

Thanks for the ideas guys, I don't think he has a nice tool belt/roll, so maybe I can try something like that. Smiley

I liked the tool roll idea too but my garage isn't organized enough so that I could actually use one. Maybe that's the problem, maybe I need tool rolls??  Wink
