    Hi everyone! I'm hoping you can help me out. I need some ideas of what to get for my "secret pal". It's like secret sisters but there are men in the guild so it's pals. 9 months worth of stuff and I have no ideas! Help! I was hoping for things that won't break the bank

    How about something exclusive to your part of the country. A pack of candy or cookies or a recipe book from a local church or organization.

    Have you seen a coffee cup caddy? It could be made with generic prints. It is like what the guys put over a mud bucket to put tools in except it goes over a coffee cup. Goodwill has coffee cups for $1 or if it gets cold rice bags made from flannel that you warm in the microwave. Some people use for stiff neck etc. but I heat several and call them my "Bed Buddies" they warm the bed before I get in. Good luck

    I bought something for myself today that's a great sewing tool-- Totes has a line of inexpensive "things" for men. One is an LED headlamp which shines a super bright beam of light from your forehead on to whatever you're working on (my husband says I look like something from Grey's Anatomy. It's comfortable and adjustable and costs around $10. I'm so happy I decided to treat myself when doing some early Christms shopping. Great for men or women.
