Homemade gift ideas for DH please!

DH and I are doing homemade Christmas gifts for each other this year with a budget of 20$ ea! The problem is DH is the crafty one here

I know how to knit a wash cloth, probably scarf, make a few felt flowers and yarn wreath....ummm cook...ran out of ideas!


I was thinking I will make him a bag of frozen breakfast burritos with good pork sausage (I make him eat turkey), thought about a fleece throw but I dont know if 20$ will cover the fleece, and of course coupons

I will soon have a nice new printer and laminator so I could make coupons or love note things...

I thought about making PJ pants but I havent sewn in years, maybe over a decade and even then I never really knew how.

I also thought about a paracord survival bracelet but not sure how hard that would be...

Re: Homemade gift ideas for DH please!

fleece with a joann or michaels coupon you could get for really cheap.

maybe make some special treats, like truffles or something? My DH loves PB cups and snickers bars so I found homemade recipes and make them for Valentines day, etc.

I know I have some JoAnns coupons around here and we just got a michaels!

I wonder if I could make German Chocolate cake balls? He loves german chocolate cake, if I could make them into cake balls and freeze he could just pop one when he wanted...
