knitted gifts for men
I know some of ya'll are men so I hope you'll be able to help. I want to knit a friend a gift for Christmas but the only thing I can think of is a beer bottle holder thingy, but I would like to consider more options before starting.

Are you limiting this to men only? I'm intruding then. lol I knitted my son sox and he loves them so much that he learned to knit so he can eventually make his own. He also loves the worsted weight slipper sox, hat, and mittens I made for him.

What about a pair of fingerless gloves or fingerless gloves with the mitten flap? They're handy for texting and non-texting moments.

No sweaters!!!!!! I think The Sweater Curse applies to anybody you aren't related to.

I've made hats. Unless you live on the equator most men wear hats at some time.

GG, no it is not limited to men only and you are not intruding. Thanks, both of you, for your suggestions.
ARRRGH!!!!!!! I hate it when this happens! I started typing my answer and by the time I finished ( was interrupted by dinner) two more people had answered! Thanks to ALL OF YOU for giving suggestions.

Oh, and GG, I'm not really into knitting sweaters anyhow so there's no danger of the sweater curse going into effect.

I didn't think you would knit a sweater, really. I just think the sweater curse is funny.

Gifts for men!
I too vote for hats and gloves and mittens.
Right now I am working on a pair of gloves and hat set as a retirement gift. The custodian at the elementary school is retiring at the end of this year. So I decided to knit him a hat and glove set as a retirement gift. He has been very good to me by getting me chain that is used to lock the walkers gate. He gave me a lock and key to use with it. So I decided to return the favor.

I wouldn't think you would think it was so funny if you experienced it firsthand.
