    I made pj's for my grandsons one year and used the camo pattern fabric. They loved them.

    Boxers, PJ pants (I buy matching t-shirts to go with them), robes, pillow cases for any man or boy.

    Shoe bags, toiletry bags, laundry bag, luggage tags for those who travel a lot.

    Well padded cushion in team colours for those who spend lots of time at the rink, maybe with a matching lap blanket. The benches at our local hockey rink are flat and hard, a cushion is needed. I am sure the same applies to outdoor bleachers in cooler areas.

    Fleece vests, jackets or pants for the outdoorsy guy.

    Fleece hats, ear muffs (just a thick head band), scarves.

    I find that fleece works well for a great many gifts for men. It keeps them warm, it is available in lots of great prints, including team logos, camo, animal and more.

    Good luck.

    Yes, I made my son pillowcases with computer key fabric and mother board fabric.

    * suit bags ... for those that are on the go. Can be plain coloured or could be done in something more personal.

    Zipper down the front and an extra pocket or two to hold some basic toiletries (eg. tooth brush/paste, deodorant). My favourite has a large zipper pocket across the bottom that I can put a pair of shoes, change of underwear and a few toiletries.

    Make the men pillowcases with their favorite sports team fabrics. For the kids, do "bedtime stories" pillowcases. For example, use puppy fabric, and then add a book about dogs.

    Mine like to cook and grill - chef hats and manly aprons with thematic fabric, maybe some pot holders and oven mitts to match.

    For those that live alone pillows for their sofa or other decorative items for their house that says it is so personal it couldn't have been purchased and wouldn't be used by anyone else. Monogramed shirts and sweatshirts, monogramed towels for their golf bags..

    Last year I made about 25 "quillows", which are really simple. A "quillow" is a quilt or blanket with a pocket attached. Fold the quilt/blanket part into the pocket and you have a pillow.Everybody who got one seemed to really like them. I have seen them in use when I have visited or seen them in the trucks the guys drive.
