    I need some ideas. I have a few teenage boys I’d like to give something small to for end of year/Christmas. I’d prefer to make it but I’m struggling with ideas.
    I had thought about the earphone pouches like Nicole made for her midwives. https://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/15298456187/
    Has anyone with teenage boys got any good ideas? thanks Heidi

    Heidi, you are kind, you remind of an Aunt of mine who never wed. She made us the most amazing gifts, we adored her.

    My go-to teen boy gift is a shoe bag, like the drawstring bag in the LTTS book (I know you have that). I also like to pop a small pack of wet ones and some Scuff Stuff shoe polish in it.

    Voila, a travellers shoe cleaning kit.

    The shoe cleaning kit makes me smile, especially as the boys wear black school shoes to school everyday 🙂
    And yes I do seem to function a lot as that type of aunt, but married 🙂

    What about a hanging charging pocket like this: http://www.positivelysplendid.com/2014/06/diy-fabric-phone-charging-station.html

    Fun ties? I like the Purl Soho tutorial: http://www.purlbee.com/2009/05/21/mollys-sketchbook-fathers-day-tie/

    A few years ago I made fleece slipper socks for everyone in our extended family. The men and boys loved them and have asked frequently since then if they can have a new pair.

    I bought the pattern at Joanns but it can also be purchased online here. They’re the Polar Socks for adults and kids.

    I love the charger holder and the socks! One boy In particular I think would love the socks, especially as they would fit, once I up size them for his (currently!) size 13 feet (size 14.5 in North America) 🙂
    Thanks for these great ideas 🙂

    It’s very frustrating! I don’t think spotlight in Australia has any of the non Mcalls patterns 🙁 And I can’t seem to find a download version either. Back to the ideas board.
