Clever DIY Homemade Gifts for Men

Shopping for the men in my life is probably the hardest gift of my year.  Why?  Because my husband and father and father-in-law never really "needs" or "wants" anything.  So it can super tricky to figure out what to do for them.  

My husband is probably the hardest.  I've done it all from gifts, to DIY projects to coupon books or even an entire year of date ideas.  Sure he appreciated them all, but none were really a hit.  I decided this year I would rather just make him something that is practical and he could use every single day.
