DIY Gifts for Men

DIY Golf Bookends | Ann’s Entitled Life – A great gift for a man with an office who wishes he was on the golf course instead.
Superhero Sleep Mask | Cutesy Crafts – Perfect for the night shift workers who just can’t get the room dark enough during the daytime. I worked/slept several years on that schedule!
DIY Cell Phone Charging Station | Pinspired to DIY – This looks way better on a counter, table or desk than a bunch of cords and phones spread out everywhere.

Hand Stamped Washer Key Chain | Kenarry – One can never have too many key chains.
