For the ones that seem to have everything, experiences are great. Concert tickets, zoo tickets, or one of those air tunnel sky diving places, a hot air balloon ride, sky diving lessons, snorkeling lessons, an awesome hiking trip planned, etc. I love thinking of fun things like these for people! But it all depends on where you are located since it’s December! Lol!

I agree on tickets to something or a trip- concerts, sporting event, museum of art of science (if there’s any close by?), or a trip somewhere that you’ve never been or love to go to.

You could buy tickets for one of those BYOB painting classes. My husband and I do those and they are a ton of fun. I don’t paint too often, so it’s great for those who are just starting out and for those with advanced skills because everyone can work at their own pace and level. Plus, there’s beer and/or wine

You should check with your local zoo or seaquarium. We have private one on one encounters with lemurs, penguins or even swimming with the dolphins. Definitely a fun experience, especially if he loves animals.

Some ideas: 3-D printer kit that he would have to build himself, virtual reality headset, zoo membership, or a sketch tablet (mixes art and computer).

There is a thing called canless air. It’s like the ones you get at the store, but it’s battery powered. It’s amazing! My husband loves his! You could get him a new set of tech drivers. They’re always handy when building a computer. 🙂

If he like computer/techie stuff does he have a Rasberry Pi or an Arduino? Both are basically mini computers that can be added on to with all sorts of accessories and can be completely customized by the user, from things like home-automation, robotics, game design, etc. My husband is tech geek and loves his.

I think the idea of setting up his own paint studio is amazing and super romantic and as a fellow artist, I would totally cry if Darling Husband did that for me. However, I only caution you on buying supplies. Some artists (*raises hand*) are really picky about their mediums and Darling Husband wouldn’t know the first thing about which brushes, pencils, canvas and paper I would prefer. And while I would still cry if he attempted to set up a studio for me, chances are I wouldn’t use any of the materials he’d buy. But, if you have any of his old stuff laying around and you could figure out exactly what he used to use, I’d say go for it. But I’m bias to this option 😉 Plus, I know nothing about computers/tech stuff

I can tell you about what I’m getting for my husband and maybe you get some ideas from that!


I have bought a leather briefcase for him for Christmas. He goes to the university and carry all his books in a nylon back pack at the moment. He is very unpretentious and would never care to treat himself with something like that.

So any nice bag, briefcase or laptop case etc, might be an idea? 


Husbands birthday is coming up just a few days after Christmas and for that I’m thinking of getting a GoPro camera. He have a motorcycle and he is crazy about going to the race track. An action cam will be a fun way for him to relive his track days from the sofa at home. 


Other things I can think of that suits pretty much anyone would be a new watch, a book, an iPad, a bike.

I just bought my Fiance some nice cowboy boots.  He’s not a rancher, but these are such nice quality, very comfortable and classy looking that he can wear them under jeans to work or a concert or out and about when we go on trips.  I’m really excited to give them to him.

I second the raspberry pi idea. My husband loves his. Another idea is a soldering kit. I disagree about him potentially being picky about the art supplies. These days with amazon reviews, it is fairly easy to pick out something of good quality that he would probably use based on what other artists say about the product. I am picky and have liked most art supplies I have ordered based on amazon reviews. I also think setting him up a mini art studio is a really thoughtful and sweet gesture.
