Anyone have any idea what to get their SO for the holidays? FI is pretty easy to shop for because he always needs clothes for work. I’m also planning to snag him a PS3 because he’s been drooling for it for quite some time.
Any other bees have an idea of what they’re shopping for?

My FI is impossible to shop for…I did find a cool NES/SNES gaming system on ThinkGeek, though – it’s compatible with both types of games! I think he would really like that.

My FI is nearly impossible to shop for. He is one of those guys who is like a big kid, with money. If he sees something, he thinks about it for 5 minutes and then goes and buys it for himself. The only things like that he won’t buy, are clothes. I suppose clothes are what you get for Christmas when you are a hard-to-buy for grown-up. His mother and I are always scheming to try and get him something he will like. The issue is that he will think of something and put it on ‘the list’ and 2 days later he has already bought it. Go figure.

J is getting a big helping of I-spent-$1100-on-a-flight-to-see-you for Christmas. 🙂
I’ll probably get him something smaller too though… not sure what. Just barely managed to get his birthday present in the mail last week.

I’m planning on checking out the Best Buy Black Friday sale that has the PS3 plus 2 games for $299 We always had a running joke that he couldn’t get a PS3 (we already have the Wii and Xbox 360 in our house) until I got a ring… well he Proposed so it’s only fair that I hold up my end of the deal 🙂

My fi wants at PS3 to go along with is wii, xbox 360, playstation 2, and game cube. I really don’t know where he’ll fit it but he’s determined to have one.
*sighs* but I told him we couldn’t afford it this year and he’s settling for guitar lessons at a local shop and a guitar that I already bought him (lol–I am soo bad with presents).
He also loves Link form Legend of Zelda and I’m planning on getting him a shirt or shot glasses (since he wants some) with the triforce on it Etsy…here I come ;P

We’re adopting our little bulldog baby Maisie on Friday, so I think she’ll be kinda our present to each other. I’m thinking about getting him a massage and some small little things 🙂

Um. I don’t know. We might do a joint present. Like a weekend away together. We have joint bank accounts now. Might be a little silly to get each other gifts.

@KDavis: you can pick up a PS3 from pretty much anywhere…Best Buy, Walmart, etc. *Apparently* there was a price drop and it’s going for just under $300 CDN. Oh did I mention it has a Blue-ray player?
@floridabeachbride: yeah I think my FI has pretty much every game console. I only have myself to blame because I bought him the XBOX360 years ago and the Wii for our last anniversary. Boys their toys.
@MissYap: oh that’s a great idea! Yikes, I don’t know why we didn’t think about that ourselves.

I got him the comlete series of Firefly, but I want to get him a couple other little things as well. But my FI also likes to get the stuff he wants the second he decides he wants it. lol.

My SO just celebrated his birthday and I got him a PS3. They cost $299, and I wasn’t able to find it on sale. The games are pretty expensive too, between $30 and $60. I don’t think either of us will be spending much money on each other for Christmas. We each have a large family and that takes up a big chunk of our Christmas cash, so we usually just go out to a nice dinner with each other and get each other something small.

We have a $200 cap so here’s what i’m thinking
Zombie t-shirt and book (just for fun)
watch OR some nice clothes (cashmere sweater?)
pizza stone and cookbook
a coupon for something ‘special’ he wants from me that he gets like, every other year, LOL.

No presents this year 🙁 Gotta save for the wedding, boo! BUT if I had the extra money, I’d buy him a set of in-wall speakers!
