Last Minute Christmas gift Ideas For The Fellas

Posted on Updated on

Nothing says I really do care like a  homemade gift for the holidays. We all can go to our local walmart or shopping mall and spend thousands of dollars on gifts that your friends and family may or may not use. Think in to consideration to making some gifts from your own hands its more personal and quite frankly takes more thought, therefore being more appreciated. Here are some gifts ideas you can do at home, why not give it a try?

For the Man in your life:

If he is a drinker this gift is a simple and different gift idea too give ( can be done with any type of bottled beer)

beer gift

A disguise bag. which could be a awesome kid gift idea……or for any man….he would love this just as much as the kids would ….moustaches that won’t last a month something for me to love too 😛 ( for the silly//playful man)


These disguises are made from things you can find at a local craft store some even at the dollar store, the bad can be bought plain and the you can add what ever saying on the bag puff paint will do great.  I thought it would be fun to make my own version for a cool boy I know. Some are felt, some are faux fur and all have elastic string to hold them on. They are in a hand lettered portable drawstring bag so he can always have them on hand in case he needs to Go On The Sly.

For the Man who likes to snack, this gift basket can be done in a million different ways why not put your own spin on it.



Uplifting Eucalyptus-Peppermint Shaving Cream

Vegetarian • Gluten free

a shaving cream recipe with ingredients I had on hand from making this body butter recipe. I had coconut oil, shea butter and apricot oil and some essential oils. I read that baking soda would act as an exfoliant as well so I decided to add a small amount of that.

I chose to use these essential oils because they are beneficial to both the skin and mood.

  •  Eucalyptus is cooling, refreshing, breaks up congestion and has disinfecting properties.
  •  Peppermint is uplifting to the mood, is energizing, breaks up congestion, soothes itchy skin and is cooling to the body.
  •  Lavender has a fresh scent, improves breathing, breaks up congestion, is healing when applied to the skin and uplifts the mood.

High quality essential oils and carrier oils can be found here.

There is no soap in this recipe so it won’t foam like commercial shaving cream. It should be applied in a thin layer, allowed to sit for a minute to soften skin and facial hair, then wiped off with a towel after shaving. There is no need to wash it off.

For a more environmentally sustainable alternative to conventional razors, I recommend using a safety razor. They give a closer shave, create less waste, and the razor blades are much less expensive than the blades you’ll find at your local store.


Spiced Rum After Shave A great gift and unique

spiced rum

Give a gift that will have the guy in your life smelling awesome and will also make use of that last shot of rum hiding in your liquor cabinet. Mix together this fragrant concoction with the help of the ends of seasonings and orange peels, ensuring that absolutely nothing goes to waste. And this aromatic balm costs hardly anything to toss together, making it a really unique and memorable gift for any handsome fellow. Use a repurposed glass bottle, and your aftershave looks like you picked it up from a chic boutique.

Read on for the directions!

What You’ll Need:

  • Small saucepan
  • Fine grater or zester
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1 cup witch hazel
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 to 3 bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger (optional)
  • Small sprig of rosemary (optional)
  • Strainer
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ounces rum
  • Small glass bottle
  • Wine cork


  1. Gather the ingredients for making the rum spice aftershave. You can use your favorite kind of rum, and bay leaves will only cost a few dollars at your local grocery store. Measure and add the witch hazel and water to a small saucepan, which creates a nice base for the aftershave that’s also soothing for your favorite guy’s skin.

  1. Place the saucepan over low heat, and zest the orange over the saucepan using a fine grater or zester. You can also use orange peels by cutting away the orange skin from the white pith and adding it to the pan. Oil from the orange peel is naturally antibacterial and gives the aftershave a lovely scent. After adding, cover the saucepan and let warm for an hour, which allows the scents to infuse, creating a really fragrant base.

  1. Turn off the heat and add the vanilla and rum to the aftershave. Give things a stir, and let come to room temperature before the next step.
  2. While you’re waiting, select a glass bottle to use for holding the aftershave. If it doesn’t have a screw-on top, then cut a wine cork in half using a sharp knife and carefully cut and angle the base until it fits snugly in the top of the bottle.
  3. Strain the aftershave, and use a funnel to pour into the bottle. Your rum-spice aftershave is all set for giving to the main man in your life!

Makes 8 ounces of aftershave.

Last of my list: I thought was super unique and is definitely for the meat lover is Bacon Candles + Chocolate-Covered Bacon. Great DIY gifts for men!Bacon scented candles AWESOME!!!!

Bacon candles

Instructions: Do not pour hot grease into a glass or plastic jar you can cause a fire PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN MAKING THIS!!!! Only use the bacon fat grease that has been cooled and formed into a white/yellowish substance!


Bacon grease

Chocolate Scented oil

Candle wicks




Here’s all you do to make your own bacon scented candle.If you go to Michael’s, they have a whole entire section on candle making. I found my beeswax and candle wicks there. Most people have jars and pencils lying around their house already.

1. Melt some wax over a double boiler until the wax is completely melted.

2. While the wax is melting, tie the candle wick to a pencil and let it hang in the jar.

3. Stir in some bacon grease to the candle wax with three drops of Scented chocolate oil per Jar. I used about 2 1/2 tablespoons of bacon grease.

4. Slowly add in the wax to the jars.

And there you have it folks. Your own bacon scented candle. Another way to save on all those un-wanted extra calories. :)

Hope I gave most of you some ideas Christmas is almost here folks and dont forget these can also be made for other occasions such as birthdays or wedding presents let your mind and creativity take these ideas into your own.

Thanks for reading and peace to you all, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!

    This was a fine idea until it required to inundate
    other players with requests. If you are looking for handset that
    has both a rich feature set and beautiful design then look no further than the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray.
    Android, which is an open-source structure, popularly used for developing mobile apps is controlling the
    market of mobile apps development.

    “I wanted to go abroad like a lot of Lebanese young people. Dating at a number of sights link them with the period circa 470-500, when Arthur is thought to have lived and the wars with the Anglo-Saxons were being carried on. Many women shoppers now shun these major shopping districts to avoid such confrontations.

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you are working with?

    I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find
    something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

    First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!

    I believe what you published was actually very reasonable.

    However, consider this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website,
    however what if you added a post title to possibly get
    a person’s attention? I mean Last Minute Christmas gift
    Ideas For The Fellas The Sleepless Mommie is a little vanilla.

    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post
    headlines to grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written.
    In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

    Do not lie down after a meal if you have acid reflux disease. Once you lay down, the esophagus opens up a lot more. This allows acid through the tummy appear with the esophagus and finally, via your tonsils and oral cavity. Our recommendation is that you wait around a minimum of 2 hours right after a dish to lay down.
