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!!

My dh is getting a digital radio for the car (previous one was nicked) because he absolutely can't survive the drive to work without Radio 6 Music.

My DP got a lovely personalised iphone cover, and finest m & s loungewear. All lovingly wrapped in fine thick paper, and red silk ribbon.

And they are now in the bin. As he is an arseloch hmm

It's bitty because he buys what he wants for himself and then says he can't think of anything at Christmas!

I've bought my DH a fancy fountain pen and a couple of bottles of fancy ink that will come from our DD. oooh fancy. I hope he likes them!

I also know my brother has got him an XL Man Box as a present which I know he will love.

As well as some other bits, I have bought DH some wellies as he doesn't have any and can't splash in puddles with our 2 year old! It's his gift from the kids.

Slippers
Diabetic chocolates (because he's diabetic, not just because I felt like it)
