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!!

I'm getting him tickets to the Gadget Show Live at the NEC in April.

That way if he wants to spend silly money on an expensive thing it's up to him!

And it looks fun smile

I've brought DP a mountain biking magazine membership, Superdry coat and some yoga stuff as he's just got into that. Will also do a little stocking filled with treats such as sweets, chocolate, popcorn, nuts, ale etc

I didn't spend hundred Tanyaaah - honestly, you're not alone! I bought DHs stuff in the sale/from an outlet.

I bought dh a projector and a 120inch. Screen this year. He wanted to buy a 90 inch tv the thought of it on my lounge makes me cringe. Thought that at least this way he can have the big screen but it can be put away when not in use

This is not a good thread to read if you don't have hundreds to spend on one person! Pah, should have stopped earlier.

A nespresso machine with built in milk frother, a mug designed by the children and a set of coffee syrups from costa. Oh and rather randomly a show cane for his horse.

Nexus 7
Case for the above
Underpants and socks
Superman onesie blush
Smellies (to stop him nicking mine)
Touch screen gloves
A jar of his favourite sour sweets
Hairy bikers kitchen implements

He will love the sweets most I expect!

The Paul Hollywood Bread book. Second hand.

We have a tiny budget for ourselves for Christmas as we'd rather wait for the January sales and make our money go further.

SirChenjin Wed 18-Dec-13 12:51:26

Dh is getting (wait for it....)

A naice shirt
A nightshirt (his request I hasten to add - he doesn't like the way his t shirts ride up in the night)
Slippers
Diabetic chocolates (because he's diabetic, not just because I felt like it)
A onesie (it's a family 'in' joke)

We're all about the romance here grin

Loving the arsenic and the mop. Great to have some fresh ideas. fgrin

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.

A bottle of whisky, a couple of books and some chocolate coated coffee beans!

grin at Joywillcome - do let us know his reaction!

My DP bought me an axe last year (I have an open fire and he thought it would be useful - he really did!) - so this year I have bought him a mop!

ladyr Mon 16-Dec-13 15:37:23

One of these books went down well for my DH last year.

DontCallMeDaughter Mon 16-Dec-13 15:02:23

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.

A new messenger bag for his laptop -(am quite proud of this, it's French connection and was more than half price in the Asos sale)
Some bits and pieces to help him when he goes back to uni - notebooks, pens, travel pass holder etc
Box of wine gums
Nice coffee
Stark industries mug (mostly because he has gone on and on about his beloved mug breaking 3 months ago)
Darth Vader and son book from 2yr old ds.

Mine is getting silver necklace (his request) for Christmas and a surprise photography experience for yule.

lels99 Mon 16-Dec-13 14:32:00

Brought mine a home brew kit

Down Jacket and body warmer
Angry bird socks
Courvoisier
Paper airplane set
Spicy nibbles to go with his festive beer
Refresher sweetie Car air freshener

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

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

Ive bought my dh a Chinese puzzle box, Viking bookmark, pj's, kick ass box set, a geode and a breadmaker!
