I need inspiration!

My Dh only has essentials at Xmas, we don't do luxury gifts. This year he has new pants, pjs, slippers and some new boots from Asda!

DaphneGaffney Sun 15-Nov-15 10:33:06

Oh yes dh will be getting essentials too, I just wanted something different for a present, a surprise as well as the standard boring stuff. I got a great idea for Dd's birthday from here (something I hadn't even heard of) so I thought I'd ask for dh too!

Last year a friend did me a pencil drawing of his favourite dog. It was lovely and he cried so it's going to be a hard year to follow.

Aussie Grit by Mark Webber. It's only £6.99 on Amazon & its ideal for any guys into F1 & Motorsport.

No idea on the rest. Men are so tricky!

Collieputthekettleon Sun 15-Nov-15 12:46:38

Oh and beer flavoured Jelly beans grin

FlysInDreams Sun 15-Nov-15 12:55:30

I'm just getting bits and pieces. So far a washing bag (I've gone completely blank on whether that's the right word, the sort you put toothbrush etc in on holiday?), a Lego book light and I'm thinking of getting a calendar for work with pictures of our twins. Dunno what else at the moment.

Iwantakitchen Sun 15-Nov-15 12:58:12

So far I've got:
leather gardening gloves
mini plant snippers
a key hiding thingy for the garden
a book about gin
loads of socks
some toiletries from L'Occitane
bits and pieces for his stocking

I've yet to get:
Yellow glasses that block blue light hmm

He has also asked for a few handmade things like body scrub and a bag.

Seems like a lot but it's his birthday in December so I'll spread the gifts between both days.

eckythumpenallthat Sun 15-Nov-15 13:25:36

Me and DH have said no presents and getting a small TV/DVD player for our bedroom in the January sales. Romantic eh?! Lol we are doing a stocking to each other with a £25 limit. Ive seen (and yet to get) a bottle of beer but has gin in it, a fleece balaclava for when he's on his motorbike, some christmas pudding chocolate, a bowie cd, terminator DVD, jd Ballard book

TelephoneIgnoringMachine Sun 15-Nov-15 13:31:34

2 ties from the Jaeger outlet - they have a flash sale on.
DVD boxset - complete set of Men Behaving Badly
Killer sudoku book
PJ trousers - he likes the cartoon ones you can get from Asda for about £10.
I might get some socks
2 bottles of coffee syrup plus pumps - we like the Sweetbird brand the best.

It's quite a lot now I look at it, but I'm giving some for Christmas & some for birthday which is just a few days later. I will probably see some other things as well. Must resist.

TelephoneIgnoringMachine Sun 15-Nov-15 13:32:34

Oh yes, beer too. He likes his Real Ale.

didireallysaythat Sun 15-Nov-15 13:39:15
