thinkgeek.com might have something for you. It’s where I get 99% of my birthday, christmas and anniversary presents.

Any other interests? Unfortunately for both of us I’m usuaully better with expensive gift ideas though…

Does he dress up for work often? Mine does and is really into baseball so I got him cufflinks made out of a game-used baseball from his favorite team. But you can find plenty of non-sports related cufflinks. 

Beer drinker? Get him a neat bottle opener like https://www.etsy.com/listing/113604403/beer-sign-bottle-opener?ref=sr_gallery_19&ga_search_query=bottle+opener&ga_ref=auto3&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery or https://www.etsy.com/listing/122341996/credit-card-bottle-opener-gifts-for-men?ref=sr_gallery_38&ga_search_query=bottle+opener&ga_ref=auto3&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

Whiskey or Scotch more his thing: Whiskey stones, or the XL ice cube trays, or a bottle more expensive than he’d normally buy himself.

Maybe a fun game? If crude humor is his thing, check out the game “Cards Against Humanity: A party game for horrible people”… only $25. If you don’t get offended easily its a lot of fun. Kind of an extremely r-rated version of Apples to Apples.

laschai:  One of the best gifts I ever got my dh was a ballpoint pen and clutch pencil set (relatively cheap one but metal) with his initials engraved on them. He used them for years till they eventually broke.

Personally with me, having learnt the hard way, I will straight out ask my DH what he wants and get him that. The number of times I’ve bought him a gift that I thought he would like and then has never used…! 

So I think it would depend on what your FH is like. If he is like my DH then ask him (if you still want it to be a surprise then ask for a couple of suggestions). If he will like anything then get him something that will be meaningful to him (related to a hobby he has maybe) or something he will get a lot of use out of.

I struggle too! One year, I bought a personalised stocking with his name on and filled it with a bunch of smaller things – a dvd, his favourite sweets, a new tshirt, a belt, a mini bottle of baileys or alcohol, a new wallet etc… and since then its become a tradition that I fill that same stocking up with little things (under £50 in total) and he loves it. Its never anything fancy but he looks forward to getting certain things in it- like his favourite beer from belgium and a terrys chocolate orange etc…
