@TwoStatesBride:  Ugh, I wish I knew! I have noooooo idea. 

 

Maybe you could buy him a rock-climbing adventure package or something like that? I don’t know, I don’t know how physical activity works, hahahaha. However, thanks for that great idea to get him work clothes. He could use some more pants/shirts. But that kills me, because I want to get him something he thoroughly enjoys and loves, ya know? 

 

Last year I got my SO a signed football and a signed football jersey. You said he’s into soccer… what’s his favorite time/player? Maybe you could get him something like that?

@TwoStatesBride:  Well, some little stuff I got him was a pair of sweat pants and some snacks for his stocking. He wants a winter jacket, loves iTunes, and also would like a yellow tie (and a suit jacket), so I might grab then all. Usually my gifts to him are always kick ass, but this year I’ve been a bit frugal. We spent money every weekend in October on trips and we are welcoming a child in April.

Had he not fixed his smoker, I would be getting him his dang smoker that is, like, a bajillion dollars.

I just got him a vibrating alarm clock to wear on his arm at night. He SUCKS at waking up in the morning, and i heard this is helpful

I also got him a “phlipadelphia” tshirt from our favorite show It’s always sunny in Philadelphia 🙂

  • Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL

We live in Orlando and we recently agreed to go on a trip or try to spend quality time together for gifts rather than buying each other physical gifts.  This year we agreed to buy annual passes to Universal Studios.  We have both talked about it for a while but with the wedding we really didn’t have the extra cash to justify spending it on passes.  It will give us an excuse to drop everything a few days during the year to spend a fun day together riding roller coasters and drinking Butter Beer while eating a Krusty burger.  Tongue Out

Last year we bought practical gifts that we needed for cheap on Black Friday.  I bought us a 40″ flat screen TV for our new apartment and he bought us a new laptop to replace the one that finally died.  The year before we went to St. Augustine for a weekend in a B&B.

Well its more than $50, but I got my DH the iPad Air. I wanted to get him the PS4, but I am not going to wait in line and then get punched in the face fighting over a video game console lol.

Then I got him a bunch of random clothing (he never buys himself clothes). I need to get a couple more things though, but I’m really having a hard time coming up with stuff this year.

I’m really anti-knick-knack, too. The gavel would be so cute if your DH were going to become a judge (that takes years of practicing law first though, right?)!

My DH LOVES stuff from Duluth Trading Co. (I don’t think they actually have physical stores, just a website). They have clothing and a bunch of ‘manly’ things hahaha. I got him a firehose jacket and he is obsessed with it.

@TwoStatesBride:  Some of my ideas are the Batman game for the 360, he lost his favorite travel mug last month so I’ll get him another of those, he needs socks (boring, I know), and an ornament of Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark (his favorite Indy movie). That’s all I got right now.

@TwoStatesBride:  a plane ticket so he can go home and visit his family for 9 days next month just before Christmas 🙂

He gets pretty homesick & I was able to get a great deal.  Seemed like a better gift than the new TV I was originally going to get.

We moved into our house this past summer and things are still a bit unorganized. To make sure that he has a spot of his own, I got him a 32 inch tv and I’m getting him a Eagles gaming chair (his fav football team) so that he can have his own mancave. I really want him to have his own space where he can go be a guy.  It’s a plus for me too, this way video games will never dominate any tv that I would be watching 😉

@TwoStatesBride:  haha, he is not! I think he’d like to be because he thinks I want him to be, he just doesn’t have the patience for it. Not to mention, he gets frustrated when he thinks he’s picked out a good outfit, but he hasn’t. 😛
