Does this fit in Holidays?
Need to start getting organised on Christmas presents. I have no idea what to get anyone.. The most difficult are my husband, dad, and brother. Anyone else find men hard to buy for? The other problem is my dad’s birthday is the same week as Christmas so I need two things for him! Ah!
We’re spending Christmas with DH’s family this year, so I don’t know yet when we’re seeing mine. (Thankfully he’s got his parents sorted already and his brothers tend to all get each other computer games or Amazon vouchers, so, easy for him there).
My husband likes building computers, which involves things which I do not understand and are waay out of budget…and doesn’t really have any hobbies to buy things related to. I keep asking what he wants and I either get a “Don’t worry about me” or “Errr”.
My brother is now living with his girlfriend so might be nice to get something for them together, probably edible but with a long shelf life since I don’t know when we’re going.
Gah. What are you bees getting for your male family and friends? (Hopefully under the £40-50 mark)

hazelbee : hmmm. Does your hubby like clothing? maybe a nice winter coat? If I am ever stuck on what to get Darling Husband i always get some nice sweaters or something. or maybe a watch?
For your dad- Is he retired? have any hobbys? I got my dad an indoor putting green for his birthday, he loves it!
For your brother- a nice bottle of wine and a decanter! Somehting to drink and for the house. You can catch nice decanters on sale too!

Haha, I have to force Darling Husband to go shopping. I did get him a nice jumper for his birthday last year, which he does wear! He might get clothes again, at least it saves him a shopping trip. He now has an Apple watch, so that’s out…. althoughh, he does need a new strap for it, so maybe a nice leather strap.
He is yes, he does a lot of DIY ..hm, something to think on.
I’ll have to ask mum if she knows what kind of drinks my brother likes and see if a bottle of something would go down well!
Thanks for the ideas.

Do any of them use electronics a lot or travel? A portable charger (power bank) is always a good idea. Amazon has some good deals right now.
Can always give your brother and girlfriend some movie tickets.
Can do something “fun” like give them a set of legos! Take them back to their childhood!

I know Darling Husband has a power bank, dad could find one useful now he’s learned to use a smart phone 😛
A (little) lego type set could be a good stocking filler, I know my husband likes playing board games and such at christmas. (And I’m sure his nephew would join in, haha).
