In the spirit of saving for the wedding, honeymoon, and new house, we set aside $20 each for Christmas.  I made him a certificate for a years worth of back rubs along with a bottle of massage oil.

So i thought it was a great idea to make him a photo album through Adoramapix.  My computer kept freezing and it took me like 4 hours to put together.  Through my roommates, I found out he’s getting me basically the same thing. Too funny!  I also have to get him something more so I’m looking for ideas as well.  I have exhausted all of the necessary electronics (iPod, iPod speakers, GPS) so I have to get more creative.  He could always use clothes.  I made him a scarf for Valentine’s Day and he loved it so I could do that again in another color.  I just want something unique since my great idea of the photo album seems less impressive now.

I am SOOOOO excited for what I got FI, and I thought of it all by myself! He plays a fantasy football game called Blood Bowl and his team is made up of dwarfs and is called Da Beards. I am getting him a custom made Chicago Bears jersey from NFLshop.com with “Da Beards” on the back and his age (because I couldn’t think of another relevant number). It’s AWESOME and he’s going to LOVE it (I hope).

i got him a rolling carry-on size suitcase. It is a real nice one with all sorts of pockets! I also got him a half zip sweater from J.Crew that i put inside the case.

For all you HIMYM fans, I got him a bar sign that says “In this place in 1897, nothing happened”.

I also got him a bunch of stocking stuffers. Knowing me I’ll probably get him something else, just haven’t decided yet.

We always spend money on a trip or adventure in lieu of big gifts! It’s more fun & memorable. I won’t remember the stuff he got me over the years, but I will remember our romantic escapes! We’re spending 3 nights at our favorite local getaway: Willows Lodge in Woodinville, WA (just outside Redmond). This place just oozes romance 🙂

I also got him a customized locker room photo for his man cave with his last name on the jersey for the Bengals, the complete 4400 dvd series & the usual: a tie, a dress shirt & silly stocking stuffers.

My FI and I decided last year that instead of Christmas gifts we’d go in on a vacation each year.  So this year we’re going snowmobiling in Feb. with a group of friends.

Great ideas on this thread, thanks. Love the monogramed leather toiletry bag, may have to look for one of these for his birthday.

@Samismomsam, that is an awesome name for a Blood Bowl team, and an awesome gift. Good going!

We were supposed to be keeping it simple and inexpensive, but I fell off that wagon. He’s getting a leather jacket, a bathrobe, Star Trek: TOS season 1 remastered dvd set, the Batman Vault book, a photobook and photo calendar, and a netbook. I know he will fuss that it’s too much, but I will keep pointing out that he already gave me what I wanted–him!
