Homemade for Him

21 Nov

If you’re looking for homemade gifts for the man in your life, check out Martha Stewart for some great ideas. I went through all of them and she actually has things that a guy might love. If super crafty isn’t your cup of tea how about making (drum roll, please)…BEEF JERKY! Seriously, men love beef jerky. And making it doesn’t seem that difficult. In fact, there’s a great tutorial here.

After sharing these ideas with the husband he’s asked that beef jerky is made for him. So I guess I’ll be posting another tutorial here.
