Do you want to see my gifts for my DH? Hehe, I do know you want!:) I always find it difficult to make/buy 'male' gifts. I want them to be useful, and not too girly... so pretty colors, lace, beads and frills have to be banished!;)
Here is my presentation...
The gifts are actually the boxes. My husband has a collection of Swatch watches I have given him over the years, and he uses them every day. They are not precious if not for our hearts, but he hadn't a secure place where to put them, tidy and protected. Sooo I thought this was the best chance I had, having to move, to make something nice for that purpose!
I had saved two sturdy boxes from the bin, that I completely covered in original vintage paper and embellished with vintage images printed on fabric. The writings: HANDSOME and SO CLASSY finished them off to perfection.
I chose two symbols of male elegance (in my hubby's style and mine ;)): 'handsome' Cary Grant and... any of you ladies recognize the man on the left of the second pic?? (Revealed below ;))
I used red and white bakers twine to make a heart on the inside of the lid, and added a little message for my DH to enjoy each and every time he uses his watches.
The 'so classy' man on the left is English tennis player Fred Perry, famous for his elegant white sports clothes.
