Cufflinks: From his favorite sports team, to his initials, give him a stylish pair of customized cufflinks. You can choose from a variety of materials, colors, and motifs. Makers Chris and Alix recently crafted these “B Strong” cufflinks for a member of the CustomMade team.

Glassware:  Dress up his drink with personalized glasses. Whether you choose to add the name of his signature beverage, or a favorite movie quote, Maker Greg Leaman can create a custom set just for him.  Impress beverage connoisseurs by adding extra touches like fill lines to the design.

Pannier: Give your cyclist the gift of custom bicycle gear. This handmade, leather and cedar pannier by Maker Geoffrey Franklin is a perfect place to store his keys, mini lock, smartphone, or wallet.

Tablet stand: Guys love their gadgets, so why not give him a place to display his iPad, Nook, or Kindle that is as beautiful as it is functional? This hand-layered, bent plywood stand is molded to perfection by Maker Nicole Hodsdon. It comes in your choice of walnut, oak, or birch, and includes four cork feet to prevent scratching.

Wall art Spruce up his man cave with some rustic artwork. Maker Craig Forget can customize art specifically for your space right down to the color and size. He also signs and dates the back of each piece, and includes a mounting kit for secure wall hanging.
