Gifts that keep on giving

It's Day TWO of all things MEN week.  If you are on a budget, or just want to give a gift that will last a little longer, consider some of these ideas for a man in your life.

The very creative blogger Bryn at papertastebuds created a simple, but probably very much appreciated gift - Peace of Mind.  Basically, she did many things around the home that needed to be done, and created a little note about each one - all packaged up in a brown box.  Sweet!
p.s. you can also check out her follow-up post: peace of mind: the faq

Shannon from find joy in the journey put together a year of pre-planned dates (you could also do 3 months, 6 months, or planned outings - for a friend).  Each month is packaged in a simple envelope with a note and small items related to that month inside.  See the full post and story here!

Remember a little while back I posted about DIY versions for Gift-Of-The-Month Clubs?  If a man in your life enjoys a sip of brew, this great moustache glass from local company Engravable Designs would be perfectly paired with 3 or 6 months of unique beer-of-the-month samples.  Find some local (or far from local brews) and deliver once a month to the man in your life.

Tomorrow on the blog, stocking stuffer and smaller gift ideas for men!
