Default Re: Any Crafty ideas for guys?

Oh, I just remembered something I made for everyone several years ago. I don't know what to call them, maybe "Winter Traction In A Bottle".

I filled 1 liter soda bottles with traditional dry kitty litter (not the scoopable kind). If you get stuck in the ice or snow you pour it under the wheels to create traction. If you have front wheel drive you only pour it under the front wheels.

I didn't bother with decorating them but obviously you can if you want to. I packaged them in brown bags I got from my local liquor store and I included pocket warmers (the little packets you activate by crushing them), but you could include a pair of gloves or anything else in keeping with the theme.
