Need teen boy homemade gift ideas!

I need some ideas of what to make for my 13-year-old nephew for Christmas. Homemade ideas, not store bought (even for cheap) - last year I made him some cool pajamas, so that is out.

If you knit or crochet- a hat or scarf in colors he likes

If you sew a basic patchwork jean or flannel quilt.

Just because you did it last year, doesn't mean you can't repeat! He may have grown out of the pair from last year, or they could be worn. He may have a new interest you could incorporate, a new sports team, hobby...

Re: Need teen boy homemade gift ideas!

Does he play any sports? If so make him a kit for the bus rides. Academic team or something also has them. A comfy pillow and blanket set in whatever colors he likes, or ask his mom for old tshirts and make him a tshirt quilt.

I played soccer and was on the academic team and we had 45 minute bus rides each direction at least due to traffic. We always had blankets for napping on the way back since it was usually dark. On the way there I did homework, so it would have been awesome to have like a clipboard/lap desk for this purpose. (Remember weight and size matter since he will have to be carrying this around a lot.) My mom got me a few book lights so I could do homework on the way home as well.

Give us activities he likes, too and we might be able to come up with other ideas.

Fleece tie blankets are always a good gift! I see you make custom decals... can you make something for him to put on his wall in his room?

He is super outdoors-y and does play soccer, but doesn't do the bus, ever. I sew and knit and such, keep the ideas coming!
