- Wedding: September 2014 - Sunset Hills Country Club
If your other half is anything like mine, then he is extremely hard to shop for, and even harder yet, trying to make his stocking perfectly stuffed with something he will want/use. Well, this site has some pretty good ideas! I’ll post the link, but I’ll also include a couple of their ideas with a couple of mine.
http://tolovehonorandvacuum.com/2012/12/stocking-stuffers-for-your-husband/ (yes, I’m aware the site is from 2012, but the ideas are still good!)
1. Pocket screwdriver-never know when he will need one!
2. Stainless steel Thermos brand 16oz travel mug- Coffee makes everything better, but especially on cold mornings
3. Gift Card to his favorite lunch place, hardware store, or car place (Moe’s/Sub Way, Home Depot/Lowe’s, O’Reilly’s/Advanced Auto Parts)
4. Travel Flashlight- Tire goes flat at night, never travel without the flashlight
5. Wallet- My DH has had his current wallet for 12 years and his excuse for not getting a new one (even though it is falling apart) is thast it finally has molded to the shape of his butt cheek!
These are simple and practical.

Really good ideas! I also put little keychain type tools in his stocking because he blows through them like crazy. [flashlights, screwdrivers, ect]. He also likes little tech items like mini speakers, joysticks, earphones and mirco sd cards.
Other things I get him are new razors to try phe goes through those like crazy, too], funky socks and sometimes funky underwear if they aren’t too bulky [last year I stuffed a pair of Plants Vs. Zombies ones in there!].
And basically, anything white chocolate.

I give him a Lenox annual ornament every year, so that will be mine, along with his favorite chocolate (lindt truffles)

I also like to put things HE DOEs use in the stocking. A new tooth brush, deodorant, cologne, favorite candies, gum, fitness magazines (or whatever your SO is into). Little things that may be over due to be replaced, head phones, slippers or socks and underwear, my FI shaves his own head so a new head shaver. I find I use the stocking as an excuse for the practical gifts and then can spoil him on the real opening of presents.

We have a tradition of including a new pocketbook and a magazine. Gives us both something new to read during holiday or post hoilday travel.

Dollar Shave Club subscription! My FI (and me) already use Dollar Shave Club and it is GREAT! they send you a handle and 4 razors your first month, and then a pack of 4 razors a month every month following. You get to choose razor options that are $1, $6, or $10 a month (plus shipping), double, triple, or quadruple blades respectively. It’s a really affordable way to shave and the blades are super high quality. The packaging is really tongue-in-cheek, and the promo video on their website really won us over-

These are great ideas and very timely! I spent last night looking around the web for ideas for my FI. I found a site gifts.com that looks awesome. There are gfts for everyone and you can even take a short personality quiz so the website will suggest gifts for you. I found a few things on there that I will probably get for him.
I love the car wash idea too! And detailing, i’ll have to find a place, i know he would love that.
I’ve thought about dollar shave club. Is it really worth it? We don’t usually like money coming out of our account automatically but these amounts seem small enough it would be ok. He shaves his head as well as his face daily so razors we always need. His mom even got him a really nice electronic self cleaning shaver once but it didn’t work very well on him, left stubble and got clogged easily. I just didn’t know if he would like this as a christmas gift.
I was thinking for his stocking beef jerky, snack packs of olives, maybe cheeses too. Maybe some tea or coffee as we both love that stuff.
The keychain tools are a good idea too. Thanks ladies!

frywedding2015: DSC is soooo worth it. It’s saved us a ton of money. I can toss dull razors instead of hoarding them because they’re so expensive. They get delivered the same time every month so we don’t have to remember to buy them. They’re every bit as good as the $20 packs of gillette blades.

Books, cds, dvds, and clothing is always useful. It is always nice to add a special treat like chocolate too!
