What is your DH getting for Christmas?

There must be a squillion threads along these lines, but I looked back a few pages and couldn't find any!

My DH is so hard to buy for, in that he doesn't really have hobbies and he isn't really into stuff that would be me in this relationship.

He likes reading but works such long hours that he only reads on holiday, and his book stack is growing rapidly. I've bought him a nice bottle of aftershave, CDs and some socks but would like to get him a big present, or at least a few nice smaller ones.

Any ideas?

Tickets to see The Who in Hyde Park next summer

Football boots, aftershave and a DVD . Quite boring now I write it down

DH has a long list for once. Mainly clothes and things like a Kindle. The random thing is a Lego motor so he can motorise some creations with DD using his old lego sets from his DP's loft.

A jacket and a TV . Let's be honest the TV is a family purchase but he's awful to buy for and he'll like it so I'm wrapping it and presenting it as giftgrin

Footballs boots, Suarez and Jimmy Bullard autobiographies, Diablo snack maker, bialetti expresso maker thing - still need to get milk frother and coffee set and aftershave and I'm making him a poster of all his favorite sayings!

Ugg slippers

Some dining chairs. Its a necessary purchase (we are down to 3 chairs and one is wonky) but we don't really do swapping actual presents so if anyone asks we are buying each other dining chairs.

(DSes are getting him some slippers and a toblerone)

A new shed.

Shower Bluetooth radio
iPad case

May buy Chelsea boots and a little drone type radio control thing

Nothing! He doesn't get me anything and I don't get him anything either smile

GermanHouseCat Wed 03-Dec-14 15:36:30

Cheese the bluetooth radio sounds good! DH loves music and loves the shower so perfect combo.

Which one did you go for?

A Ferrari experience, large box of lucky charms, cards against humanity (game), other silly stuff. Also tickets to see John Bishop.

A watch to replace the one he got free with a credit card 20 years ago. He loved that watch so I'm feeling under some pressure. But at least he said what he wants this year ... he's awful to buy for. And quite rude about what other people get him. Ungrateful boy.

MaryWestmacott Wed 03-Dec-14 15:45:28

ooh, DH has asked for new headphones, but I got them on a deal so have £20 left to get him something else so watching for ideas!

I got him a framed print of the words from his favorite song for his birthday along with white toblerone (which is proving hard to track down now, wish I'd bought 2!).

A coffee machine

Soundbar for the TV as he complains about the sound on our new TV, a personalised photo calendar all with pics of him and kids or him and me and a broadband network extender so that he can have a better connection in his study (as the main wifi is in my office at the other end of the house).

That and a viz annual.

His favourite thing will be the calendar as it is every year. He doesn't know I've got the rest but he will love them.

hellsbells99 Wed 03-Dec-14 16:47:57

The new Bose plastic portable Bluetooth speaker so he can use it in the garage and garden. Going to get the black one so it doesn't show oily finger marks!

Jamdoughnutfiend Wed 03-Dec-14 16:50:56

Brought DH 2 new cashmere jumpers, a 747 experience and a new motor cross helmet - he doesn't usually get as much but I had lots of ideas this year
