I have no idea what to get him and am searching for inspiration. What did your dh/dp get last birthday and how old were they? (This bit is just nosiness, you don't have to tell me! Dp is about to be 29)
DH turned 35 this year and got walking boots (he goes at least once a year), hands-free kit for telephone and a book from me & DD. He got lots of DVDs from family. We tried to make the day special, so he got to watch footy at the pub with friends, had lunch with us, got a cake and did not have to bath DD.
Father's day, he got the Monty Pyhon DVD set (5 DVDs) and another book!
A painted mug from DD1 (Tesco do a kit with it all in for less than £4.
A scribbly picture from DD2 - I scanned it in and changed his computer wallpaper for him which DD2 loves to see.
2 cycling tops and new bike seat (he is trying to get fit again)
Some new undies (washing machine destroyed a whole load)
I bought dh a new wallet for his birthday. He was 43 this year ! He was very pleased with it as his old one had fallen apart. He's not really interested in material things, but does get rather attached to a good wallet, I suppose because he uses it every day.
mine wanted a fishing rod this year - didn't get it for him though, as punishment for asking his MOTHER to buy me a ring/earrings for my birthday! I wasn't meant to find this out, only mil told me! Dh had, as usual, left it too late, and all the shops were closed (bank holiday), so even mil couldn't get me anything nice......so didn't get him anything this year - serves him right
Oh no teavee! I bought him a watch last year so that's no good and a wallet about 2 years before that so that's no good. He wouldn't wear walking boots, I bought him a magazine subscription and Arsenal tickets for Christmas, I wouldn't know what he wanted for his PS2, can't afford to send him anywhere (and anyway, he'd want me to go too). Although come to think of it, I know he'd love a night away with a lie in. Maybe I'll see if my mum can have the children next weekend so we can spend the night in a hotel, I do know he'd massively appreciate it. Thanks for all these ideas.
dh's was one like this
scroll down to the monster truck.
I bought it from a local model shop, and you have to build the engine then spray the car body youreslf. Dh went along and chose his own colours when he had built the car.
Apparently tamiya was the cool make to have when dh was a teenager (he's 33 now). So this was a dream come true!!
