Thought I'd done all my Christmas shopping and then realised I haven't bought DH anything (!!) and Im stuck for ideas!

I ask him what he wants and he says nothing - that he doesn't need anything.

The sorts of presents I used to buy have gone out of the window now we have a 1 year old - ie. tickets to gigs, swanky meals out, trips away, even cd's & dvd's as he doesn't have time for these anymore!
He doesn't read, isn't really into clothes / fashion, and seems to have everything he needs!

Any ideas please??? He's 35 if that helps.

Thank you!!

Dh goes to the gym so gave got him new shorts and vest tops. Also got him new work shirts. He has pre-ordered the ps4 too so that's him sorted.

I've made my DH a foodie hamper plus added a DVD, a Lens for his iPhone, a puzzle, a t shirt, some smart phone gloves...all at bargain prices thanks to the bargain threads. Also got a crate of ales on the way. Just need to get the cheeses and biscuits for him.

I got hold of a ps4 on launch day so am the best wife in the world sorted but again, we have a 2yo and a 4yo and he works crazy hours so not much time to play on it. If I'm feeling flush I might get him a few bits to open, another game for it, a new shirt, something like pants or aftershave or a DVD or weirdly, a Yankee candle he announced he liked the smell of the other day (they sell them in BnQ grin).

DH presents are quite boring I suppose bit ten I am always happy to receive things like make up, perfume, clothes vouchers etc?

A fancy wallet, fancy headphones, an outfit (because he needs it rather than wants - he hates clothes shopping) and some foodie treats he loves.

I've got my DH a dr who tshirt, the lego hobbit board game and some DVDs. From my parents (chosen by me as they prefer to give money) he's getting a fitbit.

Stocking bits - sci fi bookmarks, dalek socks, funky boxers, Sherlock Holmes tree dec grin

Possibly a CD (latest MOS trance compilation) if I can't find it at the library grin

Dh has got very boring presents of a drill and tool box as he has only got a few bits and is always annoyed when he has to do DIY stuff!! Have also got him a few stocking bits like smellies, underwear and socks then will get him a DVD probably some kind of Kung fu type one grin
So not a lot exciting but all rather practical!

Does your DH have any hobbies at all. DH loves walking and is planning to a coastal walk next year so l've bought him a map reading gadget, It was expensive but doesn't look much. so I'll probably get him a t. shirt or jumper as well. x

Dalek sweatshirt; socks; hat; moby dick pop up book and a biggles book!!

An uppercut punch bag confused DH is a Muay Thai nut and has requested it hmm

Shroomboom Thu 12-Dec-13 20:35:33

What about a family 'experience' type gift? Like a red letter day type thing for the 3 of you?

Your DH would get on with mines shroom! (where does he train?)

DH is getting an iPod classic (biggest memory iPod so he can hopefully finally get all his music on one thing)
Jumper and tshirt from labels he likes
A boba feet tshirt and taz lounge pants for sleeping in
Nice socks and boxers
Elemis skin stuff
CDs, DVDs, an Xbox game and a kinect if I can get my hands on a second hand one
A little foodie hamper
Touchscreen gloves and a hat with earphones in for running in the winter
Aftershave

But probably the thing he will be most excited about is the DVD of our gyms last fight show as he had to work and didnt get to see it!

Columbo DVDs.
A book.
A selection of bottles of cider.
A box of biscuits.
A laptop as his is dying.

I've bought him tickets to see Derren Brown Live. He loves Derren Brown, is well into NLP and he'll be thrilled.

He's got a book on cake topper model ideas (he makes cakes for family and friends birthdays etc) and a book on wedding cake ideas, as he's making our wedding cake when we get married next year.

He also has a box set of 50's/60's music CD's, a nose hair trimmer and a blow job giftvoucher (one use only) grin

My dp is so awkward to buy for as his only hobby is the xbox. One game costs close to £50 so that doesnt leave much for other stuff! (he got the new xbox in nov) So far ive got him 1 game, aftershave and some shave cream/balm, karl pilkington dvd and sweets. cant think of anything else to get him sad

SillyTilly123 Sat 14-Dec-13 15:00:12

oh and he does not get joke gifts at all. Bought him perfection last year as he'd said he enjoyed it when he was small and he was like wtf?

Jcee Sat 14-Dec-13 16:48:56

A pair of trainers and an apron so he'll stop pinching mine.

A darth vader head stress ball and yoda keyring from DD.

Aintnobodylovesnanbetter Sat 14-Dec-13 18:34:34

Mines getting
A book about harley davidsons
A hamper with really nice biscuits,various flavours of tea,coffee,nuts,crisps and a couple of bottles of nice wine

StillNoFuckingEyeDeer Sat 14-Dec-13 18:49:06

Mine is getting:
Tasters of different whiskies from Master of Malt
Protein bars
A belt
Whisky chocolates (pound shop)

It's boring, but I know he'll like it all.
No idea what to get him for his birthday the week after though.

Thanks for all your responses, some good ideas!
Especially liking the sound of food/drink type stuff - alas DH does still find the time to eat & drink!
Maybe a hamper of cheese, biscuits, chocolate & beer - he'll love that.
Keep your suggestions coming!
