Homemade Gifts Boys Will Love

A lot of people might shy away from homemade gifts because they might be worried that they don’t have the skills or the time to make something from home.  I love that this list of homemade gifts boys will love, has a little bit of everything, from the novice to the expert, so you should be able to find something that your kids will love to get from you.

Homemade gifts for boys

1. DIY Lego Table  |This DIY LEGO table is loved above pretty much every other gift my son has received.  It is played with daily and I love that it can store away easily!

2. Tetris Magnets | How cute are these Tetris Magnets?  I’m sure my boys would love to play with these on the fridge.

3. No-Sew Fleece Blanket | This had me at “no-sew”. If you don’t sew but want to give your child a cuddly gift, this no-sew fleece blanket is a piece of cake to make. And really, there is no sewing involved!

4. DIY Fort Kit | What little boy doesn’t love to build forts?  This DIY Fort Kit is genius!
