Christmas Shopping for Men

Does anyone else find it so hard to find gifts for men? Especially men who you don't see on a daily basis (like your husband or son). My father, father-in-law and brother-in-law are the two hardest people to buy for. I never know what they want or need.

This year I made the pledge to buy more handmade items and this past week I was so lucky to trade with some fabulous people on Artfire. I have made a big dent in my shopping for the woman in my life. Now I need to move onto the men.

Artfire definitely has some great items for men. Stop by Artfire and pick up your Gifts for Men.
