A question about small, DIY-crafty gifts for a nerdy fellow.
(Anonymous in case this nerdy fellow is a nerdy MeFite as well). I've gotten myself into an online swap where I am to make two items to send to another person. Apparently my swap partner is a Linux guy who appreciates things that he can use (as opposed to, say, a Tux the Penguin pencil sharpener cozy).
Other than a Lego thumbdrive
or some throwies
, I'm kind of lost. I think that the thumb drive, while cool, isn't quite involved enough, and the throwies, while also cool, are a little spendy (I'd want to make him a bunch, and at about a dollar a pop, it adds up quickly).
So what are some other things I could make? Mario dishtowels? Ubuntu windowshades? I'm stumped. I have no real crafting skills (I can't crochet, solder, knit, etc.) but I'm an eager learner.
I think that a realistic budget would be around $20-$30 total, for two small-medium gifts. Obviously, inexpensive crafts are ideal.
