Can you make something for him? Maybe bake a cake, make up a cd of his favourite songs, and maybe put what money you do have available to use towards something he really wants, or maybe something he could use. Also write a long letter for him to open on Christmas, about how much he means to you, how much you are looking forward to your life together, etc.

Hi OP 🙂 

are you creative in any way? 

i really like presents with photos. 

i like the memory game  / matching game for example… i did that a while back for my parents with lots and lots of family photos… they really love it. 

– either have a ready made memo game printed with pics of the both of you 

– or just print them out at cvs and glue them on the cards.

 

i also like home-made calenders with pictures. 

you could make him a calender for 2014… either with pics of the two of you…and some nice comments… of just pics of you… 

 

is he into any kind of stories? if so you could do a home-made audio book with your recording of the story. 

 

I also like Jacqui’s idea about the letter. that’s definitly thoughtful and could turn out really cute.

@Jacquelinesc84:  I made my husband a Christmas stocking, and I think it cost me around $5 in materials (felt, some embroidery thread, sequins and fleece fabric) and some beads that I had left over from making jewelry.
