You can get DVDs pretty inexpensively now if there is one that he’s been looking for

a little box with his favorite sweet food that you make (i.e. his favorite cookies that you make)

organize a little chanukah party and invite his friends and have jack and coke – dreidel, gelt (chocolate), and latkes?

a really heartfelt card?

ugh my answers are kind of lame, sorry!

If you are crafty and he needs a blanket, lots of times you can find fleece w/ the logo/mascot of different teams.  I would bet any craft store like Joann’s or Hobby Lobby would have Alabama fleece there…and if you tie it together, it’s no sew.  I made one for my hubs and he LOVES it. 

I think all your ideas are great though.  My Darling Husband would love any of them.

Another idea I had is at the Dollar Tree they have lots of Beer mugs or other glasses that are really nice and making him a guy basket with some mugs and snacks.  You could do something cute for like $5. 

And on the blanket thing you just cut strips around the 4 corners and if you are doing a thicker two sided blanket you match them all up and knot them together all around the blanket.  If you are doing a single blanket (cheaper) you can just do the slits all around and knot them for a finished look.

I went online to shutterfly.com and made my Fiance some cute cheesy things. They often have sales and once you order the shipping doesn’t take too long. You can upload photos and have them made into leather bound books (a little pricier), pocket books, magnets, mugs, etc. It’s a nice way to personalize everyday items for gifts.

Another thing I did for my Fiance (again cheesy!!) was make him a CD with all our favourite songs on it and I printed off a custom cover for it by going on picknik.com where you can edit uploaded photos and add captions, decals, etc.

I really like your cookbook idea too! For a naughty gift maybe go to an adult store and get a pair of adult dice ($8)…I’m sure he’d like the actualy actions of the dice as a gift it’s self! lol.

For FI’s bday this year I was really really broke, so I took pictures that he had already printed out (that I knew would just sit around) and put some in a scrapbook and the rest in a picture album, so at least they would be together, in order, and protected.

Comfy slippers of his favorite sports team? A fun pair of boxers? A shot glass? Those cool ice cubes that don’t dilute the drink?

an axe shower detailer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bevJr3Ra84Q

hahahaha sorry, couldn’t resist

boys love toys.. so I’d say a bunch of little tools or tech gadgets or other fun stuff that he can fiddle with. (search gifts for men under $10)

Or maybe a build up to the big presents? a green foam finger, or a can of Boston baked beans or other weird stuff that won’t make sense until the final days (maybe its just me but I love to build suspense with big gifts)

Are there any pro-sports teams in your area? You can sometimes get super cheap tickets. In FL I would think the hockey tickets are pretty reasonable, and it’s a fun thing you could do together!

The cookbook:  “How to Boil Water” from the Food Network.  It’s AWESOME!  My husband got it as a gift from my parents in college, and he loves cooking now.
