I don’t think this will help, but maybe give you some inspiration for something more personal for you. I made my hubby a sign at a paint your own pottery place. It says

“Peace. Love. Chicken” And then I put the chick fil a logo on it. He loves chick fil a!

Thanks for all the ideas ladies!  I just got married in Sept and I have to say I have been slacking on the gifting ideas.

@jayelcee85:  That was a great idea your friend had about the 365 kisses.  Hubs is a choco-holic! 

I am more of spending money to spend time with the person but he is not.  There is also this toy that he wants.  Those annoying remote controlled helicopters that you see in the mall….i can just see him chasing the cat around the house with it.  That may have to wait until Xmas  ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband’s birthday is 2/12, so I get the double whammy – having to find a birthday present AND a valentine’s day present.

This year, I got hubby a nook e-reader for his birthday, complete with black leather case and book light.

For valentines day, since our bed is terrible and neither of us have been sleeping well lately, we bought a platform bed frame and a memory foam mattress as a gift for the two of us. Yay for Overstock.com!

I got him a robe. He doesn’t have one, and he wore the hotel robe everyday on our Honeymoon. So hopefully he’ll like it. A PP mentioned slippers. I got him a pair for his birthday, and honestly, it is his most favorite gift I have ever given him. Who knew? Guys are weird

@missjyc: Hey, I’m right in your area!! =-)  I went to the Village of Rochester mall and at the store called “Francesca’s Collections” I got this really cute book. Here it is.  I’m still in the process of filling it out but it’s a great book with thought provoking questions about the other person and your relationship. I think it was less than $15 and you can find it at Barns and Noble.

We aren’t giving each other gifts. We are taking a day trip to a part of the bay (living outside san fran) we have been wanting to check out and going to a nice restaurant for dinner. Figured we would spend the money on a fun experience together instead of more stuff. I did get him a card though ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Creative ideas i do have though! Last year i got him a watch that he had been wanting and made it into a scavenger hunt. I took clues and attached them to different kinds of Reeses (his favorite candy). He had to go throughout the house finding the clues until it lead to the watch!

Popart.com can take a picture and turn it into a canvas pop art piece. I did this for our 1st V-day together and it is still on our wall! 

An I love you book is also a good idea. You can take pictures of the two of you and list a differnt thing on each page that you love about him. It helps to pick unique and even funny things i.e. i talked about how i love how he purses his lips together when trying to be cute.

@missjyc: I actually bought him a couple of new CD’s- (i know who buys them anymore- he broke his Ipod)-but he hates the car radio and I got him a winter hat for his almamater football team-its a FL based team so its not easy to find winter stuff!
