Well i guess i could help as i'm a guy with a flair for craft Smiley
Here are the one's i love to make (Yeah i'm a guy again :p)

-Paper/Tissue flowers, you may want to show him how to make origami flowers instead Smiley

I also find these quite decent, its not my site nor am i endorsing it, but i find it worth time!
Downside - No video tuts, but its too easy Smiley


You may also want to make photo frames using those punch tools?
Imo, get this one - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8-1-Magnetic-punch-Multi-shaper-punches-/180694144887?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item6fc41f1e81

You could make frames or circles and decorate the interiors as per your likings, i wouldn't say its manly, but it aint girly either, unisex it is!

Happy crafting, don't forget to show me your projects  Cheesy

How squeamish is he, cause taxidermy is definitely manly and really does not take up a lot of room.  A male craftster here (forgot his screen name) does some interesting stuff I especially liked his wunderkammer and he also make a figiian mermaid out of a fish that looked pretty cool!

What about wire crafts? If he doesn't have them already, get him some good pliers and nose pliers (the rounded ones for making loops, I can't remember the proper name) in different sizes. If his are rusty get some new ones. I use wire to make trees, loopy handwriting style names, jewellery hooks, hooks and eyes for furniture and heaps of other handy crafty stuff. Whittling is heaps of fun! I recently made some quick stick toggles, it took me less than an hour to make six and sew them onto a faux fur jacket that had a broken inset zipper (there was no way I was unpicking along the vinyl backed seam and trying to sew a zipper back into fake fur!)
