Hi everybody! I'm looking for some creative ideas for gifts for my husband. He is not terribly difficult to buy for, but I love giving homemade gifts. For some reason, I find it hard to craft for him.
So, I'm going to give you guys some information about my DH and (hopefully, PLEASE, I'm begging) you can give me some wonderfully creative ideas that will make him feel loved and special. So, here goes:
Occasion: I'm mainly thinking about our anniversary (which is in December) and Christmas. I'm trying to get an early start this year b/c I didn't finish everything last year. Plus, I'm a teacher so I will have about two and a half months of craft time this summer. I would like to finish at least half of my Christmas projects before school starts back in August.
Gender: Obviously male.
Favorite colors: Black and red
Interests and Hobbies:
He loves to watch professional wrestling. (Don't ask me, I don't know why!) He even collects wrestling action figures. - I would love to be able to make something related to this but I have no ideas.
He also really likes the "Dark Shadows" series. Both the original from the late 60's and the one from the early 90's. He is super excited about the upcoming movie. Again, I would love something related to this, but I have no ideas.
He has eclectic tastes in music- 80's, 90's, classic rock, metal. some country.
We are both very involved at our church. He teaches a boy's class on wednesday night that is sort of like boys scouts mixed with Bible lessons. I have thought about doing something relating to this. Maybe something to help him run the class?
Things I have made him in the past:
A hand stitched pillow. I quilted/ appliqued the names of his favorite bands onto a black pillow (which I made). He LOVED this.
A cross stitched bookmark for his Bible. He liked this.
A painted T-shirt and (unpainted) PJ paints. He liked these.
(Not sure if this counts) I made a "ticket" to wrestlemania (hand drawn and colored) and presented it to him for his birthday. (I of course purchased the pay-per-veiw for us to watch. We invited friends and had a big party with snacks, etc.) He loved this and still talks about it two years later.
Please help me!!
