25 DIY Gifts for Little Dudes

Shopping for a little dude can sometimes be hard and expensive, so why not give him a gift from the heart? You could make him a tool belt or a wallet — or what about a tent out of hula hoops or a super-powered pretend jetpack? I was so impressed by all the creative ideas I found I had to put it together for you in this 25 DIY Gifts for Little Dudes. The problem now will just be deciding which one you want to make first. Whatever you do, you better make a spare for your little lady because she will want in on the fun!
