Folksy Friday - One For The Boys...

I have been doing my weekly Folksy Friday picks for a while now, and whilst I just love all the fabulous handmade items for sale on Folksy, I have noticed a bias towards us girls.  Maybe this is because most of the most talented hand crafters are women?  Or us girls are the ones most likely to be buying hand crafted items? Whatever... I figured it was time to do a selection of goodies that would appeal to the men.

If you are like me you will know that the men in our lives - husbands, boyfriends, dads, brothers, uncles, sons... - are actually for more difficult to buy for!  Well, as we draw towards Christmas (I can't believe I am using that word already in September!) here are a few ideas that will indulge your love of handmade, and solve another tricky gift problem....

So, go on, start that Christmas shopping now, and get ahead of the game!

I think my hubby would love the vintage map cufflinks and the relax mens's t shirt, right up his street.
