Last year, I shared a post with gifts to make for boys, and I’m back with 25 more homemade gift ideas! Of course these are not meant to be *only* for boys. If your daughter would like these ideas, then go for it! This is just meant to be a resource for people who are looking for ideas that boys will go for.
