There’s been a few video games he’s been hanging out for, so I’ve bought them already and I’ve hidden them from him until Christmas. Can’t wait to see his face!

We just got ourselves a gopro for our (really early) Christmas present so we probably won’t do much else. I like to have something for him to open though so I’ll probably find a couple small things like fun socks or a tie.

I’m getting Fiance a kindle (he recently started reading more) and some smaller items for his stocking. We are trying not to spend too much money with our upcoming wedding.

We are trying out that cheesy thing I’ve seen all over Pinterest: “Something you want, something you need, something you can wear, something you can read.” We just got married, so we can’t really go hogwild this year, however, we wanted to give gifts that we would appreciate. We also always give each other an ornament every year as well as stockings. So for him, this Christmas goes as follows:

~WANT: FallOut4 for Xbox One (purchased)

~NEED: (2) Belts–brown and black (nice quality)

~WEAR: Graphic tshirts and a couple of new work shorts

~READ: DH doesn’t really read all that much, but he does game. I got him a subscription to a gaming magazine.

~Ornament: It’s a giraffe ornament because he’s super tall and gangly–like a giraffe (already purchased)

~Stocking: I usually do underwear, socks, candy, body wash, shampoo, and then something silly he would like–last year I bought a bottle of Arby’s sauce and it was his favorite gift. This year, I am going to a place near our apartment that makes specialty hot sauces and I’m going to get him a couple.

Nothing. We don’t exchange gifts on Christmas/Birthdays/other gifty holidays. If I see something that I know DH would like, I’ll get it for him. Usually we go out for nice dinners on birthdays or our anniversary and save the money for something we really want/need or an awesome trip.

We tend not to spend a lot on each other because we have 4 kids and we like the bulk of our Christmas budget to go to gifts for them.  So I tend to get him practical gifts that he needs but rarely buys himself like boxers.  

This year though I got him favorite cologne:  Chrome.  He is going to flip.  He LOVES cologne but hasn’t been able to buy his favorite because it is so expensive.  I spent nearly $90 for his gift : 0!  

I also wanted to get him a new wallet (he really needs a new one), but that is just going to have to wait for his b-day (which is Jan 7).
