So far I’ve gotten him a MotoGP branded neck warmer/muffler/scarf thingy (kind of like an infinity scarf… for guys) and a nice new leather wallet.  Not sure what other fun stuff now, since those are the main things he needs!!

@Skittles131: I pre-ordered the new PS4 for DH. It’s supposed to come this Friday. Now I just have to find a place to hide it for the next month.

I normally do themed stuff.

So he will likely be getting a basket of “man” stuff – his favourite brand of Scotch, a new leather wallet, cologne, comics he wants, chocolates, etc.

Then for his bigger gift, like a vintage camera for his display collection or a gift card towards the actual camera he wants as a replacement for the ones he uses now. To keep with the theme of the camera stuff, I may even have one of his pictures (he’s an amateur photographer and I might be biased but I think he is pretty good!) made into a canvas print from our house. We already a canvas up of a picture he took on our honeymoon, so maybe another one from the same place

I’m jobless right now, so my gift to him is a month of me not asking him to buy me anything. 😛

@allyfally:  Haha, your post made me giggle. 

I still have no idea. Either the Chrome Book or some other electronic.

@Olive12:  aah me too!  I’m excited about this and I have no idea why. I had a game and a 2nd controller delivered last week. I got mine thru amazon, and they sent an email for buy 1 get 1 free PS4 games yesterday!! I may not be able to hold on to it until Christmas!

A bigger TV for his man-room, and he wants more flannel shirts from LandsEnd! I have no idea as to what else to get him, though.

My husband’s 30th birthday is on December 24th, so I’m getting him 30 gifts leading up to his birthday.  Most things are consumables, and things he needs…a few fun things too 🙂


So far this is what I have come up with:


*Sweatpants – He leaves the gym in our Canadian winters with just his shorts on, so he definitely needs a pair.
*A box of Clif bars from Costco
*Booster juice gift card
*Protein powder
*Craft beer advent calendar.  It’s a huge box of assorted beer (I’m giving this to him on December 1 – he gets to try 1 new craft beer a day!)
* boxers
*scratch tickets (or scratch offs I think they’re called in the US)
*Tickets to a Canadian radio host show
* Mug that says “Good morning Handsome” from Chapters/Indigo
*Starbucks gift card
*10 pass of driving range buckets
*his favourite beef jerky
*new running shorts
*bottle of bailey’s
*box of cans of Guinness
*golf balls
*gc for a haircut at his regular place
*aveda shampoo/conditioner 


I still have about 10-15 birthday gifts I need to add to this list…most will be small things though.


and then his birthday gift is an ipad mini


For Christmas so far I have a coffee table book from his favourite golf resort in Oregon called Bandon Dunes, as well as a gift card for his next trip there, and a calendar from the course too.  He wants Kuerig cups, the usual stocking stuffers like deoderant, body wash, etc.


Definitely going to follow this thread for more ideas!!

I’ll be making him something.  I did that last year for Valentine’s Day and for our 1 year anniversary, and both of those gifts were a huge hit.  The 1 year anniversary gift was a jar with 365 reasons why I love him in it.  I don’t know how I’ll top that, but I’m going to try.  He went to Texas A&M, and there are some things on Etsy that I might consider getting him.  I’ll probably also get him a movie of some sort.

My husband wants a PS4 and a new tv but those are far above our gift budget. I really don’t know what to get him this year.

I asked him if his computer needs anything (he overclocked it and has a desk phone running to keep it from overheating LOL) he said no.

I am going to have some links added to his watch so he can wear it again (was a scrawny 20 year old once upon a time) and then yeah I don’t know. Ideas?
