Do you have a guy on your list that is hard to buy for? I have a few and boy do they challenge my gift giving talents! My husband is a sports fanatic who honestly is so happy to see the kids get a ton of gifts at Christmas that he does not like to get any of his own. He is super down to earth and very low maintenance and I could wrap up a hammer and he would be happy! My son-in-law is an IT kind of guy and works from an office half the time and is on the road the other half. I wanted to get them both something they had never seen before, which sent me on a quest for the best guy gift ever. I decided to go green, so here are my favorite upcycled gifts I found:
4 Upcycled Gifts Your Guy Will Love
- Phone Doorbell: Remember those old rotary phones? Someone, somewhere is turning the into a doorbell! Every time someone rings the doorbell, the phone rings. That would have driven my mom nuts!
- Traffic Sign Chair: Instead of tossing bent or outdated road and traffic signs, someone brilliant is making chairs out of them. Think about the musical chairs game you could make with a set of these!
- Bar Glasses From Bottles: When it comes time for happy hour or a night cap, your man needs the right glass. How about a set of shot glasses made from recycled bottles of his favorite liquor?
- Bike Chain Bowl: Your man needs a place to set his keys, wallet, remotes and other manly stuff. Why not a cool upcycled yet stylish bike chain bowl from Resource Revival?
I have seen my fair share of cool products in my day. I have a purse made from soda can tabs, jewelry from guitar picks, seat belts and bike tires. I have a trash can made out of candy wrappers and a candy dish made from an old Patron bottle. But NONE of these come remotely close to being a cool as this bike chain bowl from Resource Revival. This bowl is so well made, you really must see it to believe it. It is nice and study, with a great weight to it. It can hold just about whatever your man wants to put in it and with it’s modernly sleek design, it will go just about anywhere.
At Resource Revival, they recycle tons of bike parts every month. They also make a lot of other cool products that would make super stocking stuffers. They have bike chain bottle openers or a bike chain bracelet for just $12. They also have luggage tags, picture frames, clocks and tea light holders; all made from bike chains. Also, if you have a small amount of bike chain and want to find a local bike shop that recycles with Resource Revival, or are a bike shop who would like to work with them, contact them for further information. Be sure to stay connected and follow Resource Revival on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. One USA reader will win one Bike Chain Bowl ARV $88.
