Fake goat's horns and 40 synthetic dreadlocks. But we have a fairly niche hobby!

I might get him a pair of those DM's for life. They are quite a lot to pay up front but they will repair/replace them as long as he owns them.

I'm not sure but am doing an "advent calender" that is actually a case of beer labelled with a beer a day until Christmas.

A passport so we can go on holiday next year, he's getting me the same .

We don't really do gifts for each other though so its basically a way of justifying the cost to ourselves grin

Beats, coupke of ps4 games, jurrasic world box set, football shirt and a cadbury hamper.

Dd will pick a little something I suppose

The same as the last 35 years - a book, a joke and a jumper. He gets me whatever my daughter thinks I would like and he gives her the money.

Pranmasghost Sat 24-Oct-15 22:35:43

A second hand book (A E Mason Omnibus) and a model plane. He'd like a print of the Patricia Baynes map of Middle Earth but I can't find one.

Cycling shit. Pedals and a gear or something - I don't understand.

annandale Sun 25-Oct-15 00:41:59

A belt.

grin attheend.

Go pro. I've found him easier this year than normal.

Fueledwithfairydustandgin Sun 25-Oct-15 07:14:15

He's so hard to buy for!! I was really excited with a deal on the bargin thread for a cycling jacket but then the Scrooges said there was a fault on the website and they were OOS. So far I've got him some clothes,some audio books for the car and I'm thinking of a new tens machine as his is broken. Also he wants some visor thing for his TT helmet and I was thinking of a cheese hamper. Will be following this for ideas.

Only flaviar whiskey samples so far and I'm not that impressed, really small . They might even go in the stocking so I am currently toy stumped. He also cycles but it is a world I neither understand or can buy for, there are special brands for everything, lo behold if you go 'off brand'. grin

TheVeryHungryPreggo Sun 25-Oct-15 10:12:16

Mary Beard's new book on Ancient Rome, a couple of nice jumpers for work and a shirt in a style that flatters his shape. If we successfully manage to move house by then, I'll buy him a PS4.

Tickets to a sporting event, wrapped up with a sporting book.
(Last year was tickets to the mouse trap with an Agatha Christie book!)
DD1 is giving him a shower gel set and a sports direct voucher.
DD2 is giving him a book voucher and chocolates

Mama1980 Sun 25-Oct-15 13:14:28

SymphonyOfShadows, you are my new favourite person smile dm for life are gonna be the perfect present for one of my brothers thanks a million!

ObiWanCannoli Sun 25-Oct-15 13:27:30

I've found dh a mighty wallet bought from featuring the new design with the female marvel characters and I'm also buying a silicone wedding band which I'm quite excited about.

Dcs are buying him a selection of vegan Christmas beers, a vegan beard keepers kits, some Star Wars books one for origami and a one of flying planes and a Bobba Fet dressing gown.

It's your typical vegan - geeky Christmas.

This year has been easier than usual, most years I'm stuck.

Palomb Sun 25-Oct-15 14:02:41

Possibly an iwatch. He is incredibly difficult to buy for sad

Cyclist spouses: my solution to being unable to penetrate the techno issues to do with buying actual kit is to buy tickets to see events at the Velodrome - check out the website if you're within reach of London.
