I'm guessing you want to make things out of heavy shoe-leather?Do you do any tooling or braiding or sewing?
If he's a reader, how about a leather bookcover? It's very simple flat piece that could be monogrammed or a book or paper weight, which is also very simple to make but can be fancied up. A can-style penholder (beer can holder)? Coasters (felt backed)?
If you have soft leathers available, pillows are always nice. A soft deerskin pillow in a wrapped style with or bead detailing?I've done some in pig suede (reasonably easy to stitch on a home machine) in beautiful quilted/patchwork designs. A leather neckroll pillow is great for a guy.
Sheepskin mittens for winter yard work like shoveling or hauling wood? (And use the scrap for earmuffs) I made mine oversized to wear over regular gloves.
How about a leather vest?Does he wear hats or caps?A leather baseball cap isn't very hard to make. Or a warm fur hat?
Keychains (boring, I know)?
Does he have a dog?You could make a braided leather collar and leash (not exactly a gift for your husband, I suppose ;) ).
I use heavier shoe leathers for hand-made books and journals, but that's kind of a specialty skill.
I hope that helps.
