I thought that seeing as the dreaded day of the loved up is looming around the corner I would take a little look at my selling venue, Folksy, and see what it had to offer.  From my point of view if you are seeking a present for the woman in your life there is an abundance of flowers, teddies, chocolate, underwear, trinkets, jewellery … you name it and it’s there, but I always struggle buying something for the man in my life.

I know family members who give their partners flowers, the odd stuffed toy, but lets face it, it’s not really very male is it? Or am I gender stereotyping? Although my very patient husband says he loves what ever I decide to buy or make for him, I always feel a little bit odd in giving him something that is traditionally a female present. Add to that fact that he is the most awkward person to buy for ever … and well I have a problem.

I thought I would compile a little list of presents that I found, share some love to other makers and try to window shop for myself while I am at it.
