It’s our first Christmas together engaged, but after being together for four years, I feel like my Christmas present this year is kind of random and not romantic. (I’ve given him cologne, a watch, typical boy stuff before). I got him a camping hammock for two. He’s outdoorsy and it seems like it will be fun for both of us, but not really something that will enhance his everyday life. I wish I could think of something more thoughtful!
What did you get for your fiance? Do you ever feel like you’ve run out of good present ideas?

It may sound lame, but a new windshield.
He bought his first car fairly recently and as soon as he did, the windshield became defective. All these little bubbles started appearing in the glass. It’s not from rocks hitting the windshield. It’s like air bubbles on the inside of the glass and they’re populating like rabbits. Super weird.
I ended up making it a scavenger hunt and hiding clues all over the house that eventually led outside to his car. He was super surprised and said that it was very thoughtful and a lot of fun. 🙂

Mine is terrible, I got him pillows. But in my defence it was the only thing he asked for! He isn’t really into stuff so he’s really hard to shop for and I’m lucky if I can get a 1 item list from him. But he does love pillows so at least I know he will be happy with them.

A bathrobe, slippers and a watch. All things he asked for. He’s most excited about the silly bathrobe! 🙂

We are huge KU fans so I got him the signature allen field house picture. We are looking for new houses and it will go in the basement for his ‘mancave’
Everytime we see it he claims he really wants it but it is too expensive. So I thought this was the perfect time. 🙂

We are giving each a mini-vacation for the holidays. DH makes a considerable amount more than me so he always buys everything he wants (he doesn’t want much to begin with). Everything else that he wants and hasn’t bought would be items I totally can’t afford, like a pricey watch (several thousand dollars) or a new hard-to-find vintage car. I always buy him clothes which is something he rarely buys for himself. I feel like I’m so boring!

This year I got him a shirt and an xbox game. This is the worst present i’ve ever gotten him. Last year, I got him a dirt bike (which is his pride and joy), I feel like I did a really crappy job this christmas. I want to go and get some other things, but I don’t know what to get him and I can’t get to any shops before xmas =/
Besides.. How the eff do I top a motorbike?! Just kidding, kinda.

I got him a new electric razor, Ralph Lauren sneakers, and a lemon juicer thing ahha. All very practical, but I know that he’ll love them a lot! The best gift I ever got him was when we were in highschool and I used my babysitting money to buy him a $400 Yamaha keyboard. We had only been dating 6 months so I can see why my parents were nervous about it 😉 Thankfully we stayed together and it all worked out ahah.

Well, this is out first Christmas being engaged and all, I think I got him the worst presents this year. I wanted to get him a Chanel Bleu cologne but I ended up gettin him a power tool by Rockwell and a Texas Longhorn money clip. He was a student there. I suck. But I thought the power tool would be useful for his work. Next year, I’m asking for suggestions.

@Christy42213: That’s awesome! My windshield has had a crack in it for a while and it’s so expensive getting it replaced. How sweet!
All of these sound so good. My finace always like things that he “needs”, but I haven’t really felt like know what he’s missing. lol.

This is our 10th Christmas together, next Christmas we will be married! Im always running out of ideas so this year I just got him Carrhart jeans and long sleeve shirts and some boxers…he’s too cheap to pay for Carrhart himself so I got them 🙂 Im thinking of adding something else but not sure yet, maybe just a Bass Pro gift card.
