    Fleece socks, they went over really well a couple of years ago and some fleece lounge pants. Also he likes to wear vests under his coat for added warmth so will make him a couple of those. Liked a lot of your ideas all.

    We just ordered some wolf wall-hanging panels yesterday. Was going to order just one for our son, but DH asked for one too! :-) Guess I know what I'm making those two! :-)

    Fleece hats that only have a roundish hole. Can't think of the name but my husband used it for snowplowing and shoveling. Glad I remembered cuz he had asked for one. I think the pattern was in polar fleece pizzaz

    Several years ago I ordered several wallet type thingies for the car to hold your registration & insurance cards. They were maybe 6 x6 & opened up & inside they had 2 clear plastic pockets to put your insurance card on one side & registration on the other. I was thinking that was something I could re-create because all of the guys really liked them- we still have them in our cars.

    My gift to my hubby this year will be to finally finish the queen size sampler quilt that was my beginner quilting class project 10 yrs ago. Almost done w/ the quilting then just have to bind it and the 4 of us (2 humans + 2 cats) can curl up under it.

    My husband would love that as he is attached to his "pen" that he must have on him all the time

    Pillow cases for each of my son in laws.

    Do you know the little bags with rice that you can add lavender to and then put in the freezer so it is cold or you can heat them for gentle heat? Well I've done that for guys in guy fabric without lavender. It was a hit.

    Mug rugs - 6" x 9" mats with space for mug (or stein) and a snack. Attach a little note saying , "enjoy your new mug rug" so they have a clue about what it's for.

    For men I have made flannel pants, fleece neck warmer things (can't think of the name), and boxers. The boxers weren't really the hubby's thing but he wears them when laundry is getting low. Used pirate map fabric, haha. The neck warmer things are super easy - it's a Kwik Sew pattern that also comes with a great mitten pattern. For those of us who live in the colder climates that is!

    I have an Indian panel and buffalo panels that I am making into wall hangings. My son wants western theme items for his new apartment. I made mug rugs to go with them. I am also making pillow cases with Jayhawk material for my other son who is a Kansas Jayhawk fan. Last year, I made a lap quilt for my son who is a Kansas City Chiefs fan with Kansas City Chief material and other NFL material. I found a large red felt Christmas bag to put it in.

    Mug rugs and his own quilt! He loves his coffee, wherever he goes, and likes the warmth on his toes.

    For the Hubby it's a Notre Dame quilt. Boys are wanting a crocheted Newsboy style hat. So, three of those and a couple of scarves.

    I've made my SIL a pillowcase from fishing fabric. I'm going to make a cover for his iPad with pics from their trip to Hawaii. Husband, not so sure. Bought him a back massager at the quilt festival. May make him some pajama pants as well.

    My hsband has the ebook the Nook. I am going to make him a quilted cover for it. I saw one for an iPad on line and I will just change the measurements. I plan on making one for my sister's iPad as well.
