It’s always good to hear of anything that will alleviate the fear of being eaten by buffalo ;-)

Many of my meerkats end up being loved by men, of course! http://www.folksy.com/shops/NiftyKnits

Try again…I’ve tried three times now to make a comment!

Anyway, love the buffalo/pagoda particularly, and have to mention there’s plenty of manly gift ideas (hats, scarves, gloves, the ubiquitous mug cosy) in my shop!

http://www.folksy.com/shops/WoodenWonders There are some lovely wooden bowls from this seller – I have a few of his pieces! Ideal for men (and women)! The square bowl would be perfect for those men who have loads of loose change and leave it all over the house!

We run blacksmithing courses for beginners as a side to our handforged ironwork business – the large majority of our customers are men who have had the weekend bought for them by their wives/partners. see http://www.ferricfusion.co.uk for details.
