Last wnter my Dh loved the wool boot liners I made him. Basically (I don't have a link) but it was the slipper pattern from knitting at knoon designs (like a family slipper pattern)- I made the cuff really long- so when felted it was about 4" tall. I just used cheap felting wool because they went over his socks anyway. He wore out a couple of pairs because he lived in them. They were pretty quick to knit up.

I have also knit him hats- but he likes the nice soft wool for those- he lived in this one particular hat- but I made up the pattern and can't remember the name of the yarn- that was really helpful wasn't it?

I've made my DH hats and he likes scarves so he might get one this year. I've made my brother a hat and neck warmer. He's not a scarf kind of guy, but he lived in his neck warmer last year. Slippers could be good for some guys (not my DH, though) and I love the boot liner idea.

my husband loves fingerless gloves, because we are cheap and keep the heat down at home where he works.

Your last little bit made me chuckle.

The wool boot liners are a fantastic idea! I think that my own DH has been talking about getting something to keep his feet warmer when hunting etc. This might work for him!

For Christmas last year, I made felted oven mitts and put it with some homemade BBQ rubs. The pattern I used is not on rav, but I'm sure there are others.

I just made my guy a pair of socks for his bday. He loves them!: http://ravel.me/Beanymama/35pp

He gets hat every year too. This one's his favorite: http://ravel.me/Beanymama/1ks09

Last year I made everyone Ninja Mitts, DH and our boys wore the heck outta them and they're crazy quick to knit up: http://ravel.me/Beanymama/i1d3z

If he's a hackysack guy, this one was speedy and hardy: http://ravel.me/Beanymama/63c60

Lastly, every guy needs ruby slippers: http://ravel.me/Beanymama/292zb

I'm thinking of doing a scarf or a cardi this winter for him. Off to check out some of these links...
