I have to admit I’m struggling on what to get SO for Christmas. I feel like I know him pretty well but I’m not sure what to get him. I know he wants an ipod but I’m not sure I want to get him one. Do you guys have any suggestions what are you getting him for Christmas?

My fiancé lost his grandfather this year…so I’m having a portrait painted on the two of them playing poker and having a good ol time…it’s certainly not cheap, but well worth the money in my opinion…

if he wants an ipod then get it but load up some songs that mean something to the both of you, songs that remind you of good times and even some favs from his childhood (i have candyman by sammy davis junior on mine, always reminds me of when i was a kid)
for my husband we just came back from 2 weeks in france and im taking him to New Zealand for 2 weeks. in the past month he got a new laptop, gps, 2 camera lenses, flash and $400 camera bag and while in NZ im sending him on a photography safari and private fly fishing course – hes not allowed to ask for anything for christmas 🙂

I’m getting Darling Husband a new GPS and some shoes that he can wear on surgery days – I let him pick everything out and I’m just ordering it.

I’m just as stumped. This is our 10th Christmas, and I’m fresh out of ideas. He says there isn’t anything in particular that he wants or needs, and all I’ve picked up for him so far is a green polo shirt. Not very exciting!
In the past, he’s received wallets (2 diff. christmases), 3 watches (3 diff. christmases), a personalized ornament from Things Remembered, tons of clothing, gloves/hats/outerwear, a scarf I knitted, a blanket I made, toys (He loves Spiderman and Toy Story, so I’ve gotten him a few fun/gag-style gifts of figurines/toys), one of his favorite photos from our wedding stretched on canvas, a sno-cone machine, scrapbooks I have made, board games/puzzles…
I’m forgetting several gifts in there.. it has been so long, I can’t remember much of what I got him our first several christmases together.
I’d love to find a new/unique idea of something that isn’t a repeat of something I bought him in the past!!

We dont really do a “Christmas gift” since we sort of just buy whatever we want year round. But this year we’re calling the shot gun he just bought his “Christmas gift”.

We make gifts. I made him a teapot, two mugs, and three coasters. We’ll have tea in them Christmas morning.

I got Darling Husband a video game he’s been nagging for, a book he wants, and I’ll get him a t-shirt or something too. We also do little stockings too, which i’ll fill with mens face cream, turtles chocolate, an applestore gift card for him to buy songs and apps, probably a few other inexpensive things!

I’ll probably get him a couple of books (he’s into sci-fi and fantasy, and I’ve been encouraging him to read more) and some other little things. I bought him some cologne he’s been dropping hints about for a while, too.

Hard to say without knowing him but I usually make a list of things people like and figure out what I can do from there- so for Fiance it’s like, “Michigan football, Weezer, playing guitar, his dog” and then you can find random stuff that goes with those interests- books, concert tix, memorabilia, whatever.
This year I am getting him something called a digital stage piano…it looks like a keyboard but is actually a piano from my understanding

@Seaside I know it says you live in NJ but seriously you must live near where I do in Michigan because SO and his friends are all about Football, especially UofM football LOL

I don’t have a lot of money to spend this year but so far I am getting him some things I saw on Etsy. One is a set of his and hers mugs that say “I Do” and “Me Too.” On the inside of the mug it says “and they loved happily ever after” and then on the back of the mugs it will have our names and wedding date.
Then the other thing I got on Etsy was an adorable handpainted Snowman couple that says “Our first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs.”… and then on the back it will have our names.
When I get my next paycheck in a couple of weeks I’d like to get him some other things but so far I have no idea what! Maybe I will go to Caswell Massey and get him some nice soap, shaving equipment, toiletries?

@missbumblebee: haha Fiance went to school there! He is OBSESSED…I am sure your friends are going as crazy as he is for the big game tomorrow!

Lucky for me Mr. Hedgie makes a list every year and posts it online for family to comb through of things he REALLY wants so figuring out what to get him is super easy. I feel kinda bad though because it just hit me how lame I am. I have gotten him a really nice (yay Black Friday!) electric razor (Seriously! Was $150, got it for $40), a robe and comfy slippers for when he takes the pup out to potty in the morning… that is it. Ugh… being married apparently means you get lame stuff for the hubs because you know he needs it. Hopefully I can find something he would have fun with at a reasonable price.

I was worried too for a while because the Samsung Galaxy tab was WAY too expensive for me this Christmas. Fortunately I found I could get a refurbished one for half the price. So, that’s what he’s getting. Not sure if I’m gonna get something else. Still pondering.
