Just that really....
I'm totally stuck for my DH. He has all the gadget-y stuff he needs - tablet/phone/ps4 etc.
We had an awful Christmas last year as he was in hospital over it and I really want to get him something great this year.
Please inspire me!

I don't know! <cries>

Well, I'm getting him plenty of DVDs, which always go down well (this year some scifi, old musicals and king of the hill - eclectic tastes!) but I haven't a clue what else.

His fitbit was a hit last year, he still uses it. He's saving for a GPS.

I often get him games (including Lego games) and t-shirts but he has loads of both already.

Experiences are better than things - get him a weekend away or something he'll really enjoy doing.

I definitely would if I had the budget grin I've got him concert tickets before (War of the Worlds Live, which has gone down in history as the Best Present Ever) but can't afford it (or get babysitters)... in fact now I think about it, it was my parents who paid for those blush

We've got a strict budget this year so I've bought him his fav aftershave, some festive PJ bottoms and a bespoke copper guitar pick keyring which says 'Daddy You Rock' which will be from DS.

Then I've just got a few stocking type bits like sweets & coca cola in glass bottles.

Would have liked to get him something really special but we just can't afford it. Maybe next year!

We are doing a silly challenge. Tbh, we need to save our money for doing up the house so we have a budget of $25 and we have to buy 5 presents in total. I just need to find some time to go and buy them now.

I like the challenge idea!

We usually get each other lots of bits but I'm going to suggest we don't do stockings for each other this year, we are needing to cut back. The DCs can still choose something.

I'm getting him some Kurt Geiger shoes, Fitbit and Calvin Klein lounge pants as his main presents.

Also got him some books, a CD, toiletries, flip flops, key ring phone charger as stocking fillers.

DH will be getting some vouchers for laser treatment/electrolysis to have unwanted hair removed from the top of his nose. He had it waxed a couple of years ago when in Malaysia, but he's fretting about it again so I said he could have that done, and he's got quite enamoured of the idea! (he's a wee bit vain about some aspects of his appearance, all associated with hair/lack of hair)

Don't know what else. He's a PITA to buy for otherwise.
