No matter what the occasion is, or isn’t – it can just be a Wednesday- every guy needs to feel loved.

10 Fantastic, Easy & Cheap DIYs your Man will Love

1. DIY: How to Make a Wallet Out of an Old Cowboy Boot! from Poppy Talk

If you’re like me and love recycling, this project is definitely for you. You don’t need anything fancy. An old boot, needle, some thick thread, and imagination for a simple, awesome and practical design.

This is one of the best examples I could find out there, and it’s a definite must try!

2. DIY Leather Camera Strap, by Almost Makes Perfect

Keeping up with the recycling projects, why not create a personalized camera strap? I’ve been meaning to do this for some time now, for myself, but wanted a more manly look, because I’m not you average girly girl, and because I want to encourage my beloved to learn photography (so he could understand me better when I go crazy about it 🙂 ).

If your guy’s a photographer, having a unique camera strap is something he doesn’t even know he wants, but he’ll appreciate it so much! Why not surprise him?

4. LACED LEATHER CUFF DIY, by I Always Pick the Thimble

For this one, you’ll need a little bit of patience, and force, because piercing that bracelet can be hard, depending on its thickness. The result of your hard work will be worth it, trust me on this one.

5. Braid Leather Bracelets for Men, from Panda Hall

Another style loved by our beloved rockers, this is a must-have in their accessory pile. Depending on the type of terminators ( not Arnold Schwarzenegger though! 🙂 ) that you want to use, you can have a simple design, or go all out and put even a dragon’s head on there!


Get inspired, create your own.

A flask is an accessory most men like, even if they don’t always carry one with them everywhere they go. A nicely designed flask, unique, at a great price, can be hard to find. So, why not DIY it?

Thinking of it, all you need is an old flask you can thrift shop from any market, leather scraps, and good glue.

Every woman in a long-term relationship knows how her man and socks have an incredible bond. It’s still a mystery for me, after all these years. The good part? Giving him a unique, hand-made pair, will make him love you even more.
