Ok ladies the holidays are right around the corner!!! Eek!! So I thought I would start a thread with gift ideas for your SO since, at least for me, it seems to get harder and harder every year. (Oh and I have no idea what I’m getting mine so I’m hoping to get a few ideas from you bees )

I’m probably going to buy him some parts of his Mustang and new sneakers. I have no idea what else. Men are so terrible to buy for.

For his birthday in August I bought him a genuine cast iron tea pot with one of the warmers. He bought some really nice teacups for it but I think now he needs the plates that match the cups; complete his set if you will. Annnd then I don’t know. As arsing89 said, they’re terrible to buy for.

@arsing89: Hmmm D just got a new Jeep so maybe I could get him some accessories.
@LiliKitty: Yes, they are the worst creatures to buy things for. But we love them to death regardless.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Walt Disney World
We are upgrading our phones for Christmas! Besides that, I have no idea what else to get him, although we’ve discussed making that our only gift since we are saving for the wedding. :0)

My Fiance and I do not get eachother physical gifts anymore, we make a memory together! Last year we had a staycation in our city with a nice hotel and wine and dinner, and this year we are going to Mexico with friends.
We’ve been together for 5 years now and we gave eachother gifts the first few years, but now we just save our money for something special we want to do together!

Tickets to see the Book of Mormon in San Francisco. I had planned on giving these to him for his birthday next week but he wanted a 60″ Samsung plasma TV which was on sale. So we got the TV for his birthday and I’m holding onto the tickets for an early Christmas present.
Men complicate everything.

@Chemist: Just as an FYI, if you are going to buy anything for his car, make sure he either gives you links of what he could be looking for or you know make, model, year, engine size, transmission type and the list goes on and on. I apparently have this thing for only dating guys who love their cars, so I just wanted to give you that heads up 🙂

I got us both nerf guns, because we’re awesome like that.
A couple shirts, some books, and a DVD set. That’s all. It was most important for us to just spend time together since we are LDR, so we’re going light on gifts.
Not that I would know what else to get him anyway!

@prisigtr: We won’t be ready for an upgrade for another year or so. Sad day because I wouldn’t mind having that new iPhone… haha!
@crystalrae: I like that idea!! That sounds wonderful and instead of getting random stuff (I’m always ok with sparkly stuff) you can do something awesome! Enjoy Mexico!
@Treejewel19: Yes, yes they do. But at least he told you what he wanted!!
@arsing89: Yes, D is very picky about the Jeep so I would probably try to pick up some hints as to what he might want. I still want it to be a somewhat surprise. But boys are picky about their toys!!!

@bowsergirl: You. Are. Awesome. Have you seen the pin that shows a nerf gun and a note that says something like “We are now at war. God speed.”? Hilarious.

a record player, he’s in the music industry (sort of, as a side hobby he has a very small record label) and his player broke

@Chemist: Hahaha, yes I have! I am tempted to do that. I plan on us opening the nerf guns early since I want some play time before we go out of town to his parents’.
