My silhouette style pictures have been very popular with the Guys I’ve had a couple of commissions of them two for gifts for men.

Encaustic painting can be a talking point and I’ve been told that guys find it interesting as its a bit different.

I have some cufflinks made with fordite - perfect for any Dad who loves his car (especially if he had an escort or capri in the 70s when this material was made).

I have this lovely patchwork lap blanket made from hand made felt. Ideal for the more mature/infirm who sit for long periods and may feel the cold more.

Art make a nice gift for the man who has everything :smile:

Or for a silly little gift a keyring is fun:

help him stay in the good books of the ladies in his life with this bathroom print.

everyone loves the shipping forecast and a brew. i’ve had quite a few customers buy this print for ‘difficult to buy for’ dads, lots of folks seem to have grown up listening to the shipping forecast with their pop.

for the archers fan dad (and washer upper in chief)…

Yet more cufflinks?
