My DH is hard to buy for (at the amount of money I have to spend anyway)

What are you gorging for yours?

I need inspiration as he is one of these guys who has everything and doesn't want anything inept ocular, but goes to great lengths to get me something nice

inept ocular grin love the phone typos.

Tickets, and depending where & when the event is, dinner and a night in a hotel too!

And socks, obviously.
And a bottle of whiskey.

Mcchristmaspants - I really wish we did this, but DH even when he has said ok will get me something, so not risking that again

he got a phone last year beaver i think it was a new hard drive the year before (can you tell hes a gadget lover grin)

Is this really a question of reasonableness? Really?

what is "inept ocular"? No idea <sticks head in sand and pretends there are no xmas lights, wrapping paper or snowflakes ANYWHERE>. Maybe some . ..... mud guards?

Inept ocular = inpeticular! Silly phone

My DH likes watches, but havnt found anything nice in my price bracket.
He also is keen photographer, but the lense he wants is £400.

Beaverfeaver Sun 18-Nov-12 22:16:15

Oooh GTAV is good shout!

Beaverfeaver Sun 18-Nov-12 22:17:58

A ride in a Lancaster bomber along a runway. I admit that is quite an eclectic choice but he will love it

BillyBollyBandy Sun 18-Nov-12 22:18:16

I am going to buy him a wool Barbour jacket.

Blue ray DVD player for his Xmas. Bowling shoes for his birthday

Beamur Sun 18-Nov-12 22:20:16

Bottle of malt
Hiking socks
Fleece (if I can find one I think will meet his requirements)
We don't go mad on each other with presents.

I have brought dh a Sodastream, he always wanted one as a kid and never got one and he is forever moaning 'there is nothing to drink in this house'

I am hoping to both delight and silence grin

McChristmasPants2012 Sun 18-Nov-12 22:23:39

how about a joined present for his birthday and christmas

Mainly clothes with DVDs, golfing/snowboarding tat equipment, a stocking full of pants, smellies, sweets and gadgety man stuff I found on the Firebox website.

A onesie. Hopefully a monkey one if I can find one! (and then maybe a matching one for the baby too!)
