I'm asking for an embroidery book so I can learn!
sshuttrbugg at aol dot com

Taya@TypeB said...

I think a great idea for dads, stepdads, fathers-in-law is baked goods or other consumables. And if he really likes tech and has an iPad or iPod, an iTunes giftcard is always a good. Hope you get some good ideas! Thanks for the giveaway!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

I don't need anymore fabric, but I'd love some Salt Water by Tula Pink under my tree.

Do you have a Harley Davidson dealership in your hometown? They sometimes have cool gift stuff there. That's where I go when I draw my cousin's husband's name. Good luck!

Captain StitchyPants said...

I don't know where your step-dad lives, but when I rode a motorbike, I loved my neck warmer in the winter months. My Foggy Mask was also a brilliant wonderful thing.

Adrianne said...

On my holiday wish-list - moar fabric! For your step-father - what about an e-reader or something like that. With a cover made of motorcycle themed fabric...

Kim said...

My wish list isn't very long this year, but I'd like a few quilting books and a lens for my camera. I hope you come up with some good ideas for your step-dad! Sounds like a challenge!

Elisabeth Woo said...

If you have a low $ limit, and he has an iphone, you could get him an iphone stand (ie: http://gadgetsin.com/uploads/2010/06/iplunge_plunger_shaped_iphone_stand.jpg). It's something silly, but kinda fun. :)

penelope paisley said...

some nice riding gloves? maybe a something to keep him warm if he rides during the winter?

Katie said...

Fabric, patterns and cute running apparel are on my wish list.

Marcia W. said...

My Christmas list is nonexistent - I would be happy with any clothes - I'm guessing that a motorcycle owner would like Harley gear or whatever brand of cycle they like. Or, a manly motorcycle themed quilt or easy chair pillow ...

bessaroni said...

Beautiful fabric. Thanks for the giveaway. I would love fabric and notions from my Christmas list. Anything for the kitchen makes me happy too.
Father in Laws are so hard to buy for. I am getting mine some gourmet green olives. He loves them.

Emily Isley said...

A gift card to my favorite local quilt shop would be on my christmas list. :)
ecisley(at)comcast(dot)net

gnomeangel said...

Gift idea - does he have the headphones for his helmet that streams his ipod? (That would combine both then - but might be a little above your spending budget...)

What about an ebook copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance?

Hope this has helped? Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Valerie said...

Fun stack! I'd have to say my wish list would include a new sewing machine, but I'm not holding out hope on that one. Fabric is always nice! No idea about gifts for guys -it always stumps me too!

Flying Blind... said...

Good luck with the man-gift; guessing he wouldn't like fabric Club Subscriptions like I would! x
