I’m not sure if I am looking in the wrong place or just no idea what I am looking for. Its my dads birthday coming up but every time I look on here all I find is ladie gifts are the male gifts hiding?
I have a whole section in my shop for men. I think there isn’t a specific category for gifts for men, which really would be a great addition to Folksy. Perhaps this could be looked at @sianfolksy?
Here is my section - in case you fancy a sneak peek!
Just one of my items…
There is occasionally a gift guide with men’s items that Folksy staff put together. Were you doing a search?
Are you actually looking for a gift and would like us to post what we have? If yes, you might get more attention if you move the post to ‘Wanted’. Not sure how to do it myself…
I have looked in the ‘gifts for him’ section but it has only got a few items in it.
I have just changed it to ‘Wanted’ section now thank you for the advice
What does he like? I always find men in my family much harder to buy for, but that’s because in my family the men don’t have as many interests as the women.
I know due to the nature of my artwork (birds and fish) that they also appeal to men- I’ve had many male customers- and women buy my prints for men- if he’s into that sort of thing that is! haha
I also find there aren’t so many handmade things for men on any website to be honest- I guess that’s because most of the crafters are women so find it easier to make things that appeal to women.
My silhouette style paintings have been very popular with the guys
This is one from my shop
I have a few in my shop
There are a few shops on here that do wonderful handmade wooden pens, I’ve bought them for the men in my family before now.
A case for glasses perhaps?
Hows about some shaving foam
How about a Surfboard VW wall clock
Morning, does he wear jewellery
I have a mens leather bracelet section
and a mens necklace section
Morning all yes he is one of the hardes people I have to buy for. He likes gardening, computer, technology.
Doesn’t wear jewllery and is grumpy old man .
Buying for women is so much easier
Oh I can relate to that! I have a couple of pairs of sparkly cuff links in my shop (and more just about to go into the kiln) but he doesn’t sound like a cufflink man…
I am a big fan of DownToEarth’s garden birds, how about something like that?
I have a section in my hand knitted shop called Gifts for Him
Just attaching a selection
Best regards, WinterComforts
We offer many items suitable for men including handmade leather belts, leather cuffs and leather coasters. Might give you a few ideas.
