Gift Guide for the Guys

Sometimes finding gifts for men can be difficult.  Here are a few ideas to help you out!  And even though these are "for the guys", they're great ideas for the girls, too!

Stocking Stuffers

Even guys need to protect their fingers from hot coffee!  This handsome Quilted Coffee Cup Cozy Sleeve from By a Thread has a velcro opening, so it will work for various sizes of coffee cups.
Most men wouldn't splurge on handmade soap, but that doesn't mean they won't enjoy it!  This Farm Fresh Rustic Sage Soap from Old Gates Farm is in a scent that's great for men and women!

Also great for a wedding, these Cuff Links from Nicole's Threads are a great holiday gift for that dapper guy!

Great Gifts

Who doesn't love a great print? This Alpine Lake Print from Shear More Sheep is a two run, relief linoleum print. It would look lovely hanging on any wall!

Does your guy have an iPad or other tablet?  Or is he getting one for the holidays?  This iPad Case from Bear Stitches will keep it covered and safe!  It is made from premium quality Wool fabric, highly functional inner core foam padding and a quilted inner lining.

The Bartonsville covered bridge met it's demise during Hurricane Irene this summer, but it is captured in this Art Quilt from LandscapeLady.  The piece is 11" long and 16.5" wide and has triangles on the back for hanging with a dowel .
Another item for the wall!  This painting depicts an old, creaky house leaning towards the horizon. It is a depiction of the peace that can be felt at home, if only amongst the hills and trees. This Walnut Home- Original Painting is from Polanshek Of the Hills.

You'll find many other great gifts in all of the MIVEST members' stores.  Please use the links to the right to check them out! 

Keep in mind that when you buy from a local artisan, you are not just $$ to us.  We are not the big box stores, just after your money!  We are grateful for the opportunity to bring beauty and joy into your life and provide you with the ability to give one-of-a-kind gifts.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
