for Christmas??

I still need a gift for dh. I have no clue what to get. He wanted the Black Knight dvd so I got him that from the kids and he really needs a new cell phone but I backed out on that because he really needs to be the one that decides what he wants.

Shopping for him is so hard! What did you ladies get for your SO? Anyone have any ideas on the perfect gift for a man?

We don't really do gifts for each other. If we do it is usually something for both of us or the family.

A new wallet. I check out hubby's to see what style and how many little storage pockets he needs in it and then go shopping. By now he almost expects it since he wears them out fast enough that he gets a new one every year. He still asks for them though and gets excited about a new one every time.

I got Rob an air hammer with bits so far. I also want to get him ear buds, new shoes, and was thinking about a nintendo. Possibly one of those sobakowa cloud pillows.

Anything little you can think of that he would really like (or needs?)

I got my husband a new phone for his birthday (today) I know more about them so I didn't need his input, he got an iphone.

Beyond that is it is survival like he is happy. I just try to find 'put there' or something different.

He wanted a cordless power drill so thats what he got. He didn't outright ask for it, I just listen to his wants and needs, a talent he lacks. LOL

I've decided that after what he got me last year I'm really not going to worry about getting him much. He'll like the dvd and I might get him some new work clothes.

I remember that too

Dh and I don't do gifts for each other, unless we draw each other's name. I usually get him a tshirt and a movie, or chocolate. He really doesn't care about gifts.

I got him a pack of rechargable batteries (so exciting, but he wanted it) and a movie that he will probably never watch with me

Our Anniversary was last week and I got him a gift card to take me out to dinner, hint hint. But he liked it and I get a night out

If I give good gifts, I get good gifts! I got and gave him a new chainsaw (acreage life), I bought him a few giftcards since he wants new clothes, and I also bought him a drill bit set and a hunting magazine (want, need, wear, read). And I got little stuff like candy and colognes for his stocking. He's spent the last three days shopping for me, I can't wait!!

My husband can be pretty clueless although every once and a while he surprises me. This year all he got was a flannel shirt, a fleece hoodie, some wool socks (which aren't cheap) and something else. However for his birthday a few days ago we got him a new iPhone and an otterbox to keep it in cause that man is beyond hard on phones.

I am horrible at buying gifts for dh. This year I got him a keurig. When we went to Mexico our room had a 1 cup coffee maker that dh used more than once, so I thought he might like it. That and we don't have a coffee maker in the house and when we had guests over Thanksgiving.....It would have been nice to have. I also listened and heard that the dc destroyed the Christmas dvd's that he really liked so I replaced those.....Today after his shopping trip our dear friend informed me that he bought them as well I also got him underwear.
I just hate shopping for him. He does so much for me and our family...I want to get him the world, but the truth of the matter is we don't spend enough time together for me to hear what he wants.
I flat out asked him the other night and he told me this certain phone. I was so excited that finally...
The very next day he changed his mind.

Dh having already gotten me a minivan called today and asked what I wanted for Christmas. I told him just him and that I have everything I could want or need. He came home and handed me a beautifully gift wrapped box stating that he got me something anyway. He handed it to me and told me to put it someplace safe. I know where it is and it's bugging me...what is it?

I got my husband a three pack of family guy shot glasses (he had asked for shot glasses literally the day after I bought them, lol) A batman snuggie and a puzzle because he loves puzzles.

He got me nothing this year, lol. I think he has something planned though for a night out because he mentioned something about that but I dont know all the details. I really dont care though I love to give the gifts more anyways.
