There is no season I love more than Christmas. It’s also safe to say thet I go ALL OUT for it too. I start my gift shopping in September (sometimes October) – I know, it’s a bit crazy, but it makes me soo happy 🙂
My man loves good whiskey, especially bourbon. He’s just discovered the series Mad Man and loves it. so.. here’s my Christmas gift list for him this year:
1) first 3 seasons of Mad Man.
2) Waterford Crystal Gift set (6) of Double-Old fashion glass. (see HERE)
3) Personalized leather coasters with his innitials (see HERE)
4) Waterford Crystal Decanter (see HERE)
5) to top it off, a personalized (with innitials) American Terry Co Bathrobe (see HERE)
… and of course a nice bottle of Bourbon 🙂
You get the idea/theme here. I’m just so excited, because I know he’s going to LOVE it! And I know him, he’s gonna be all pumped and feel all manly (guys are too funny!)..
so don’t jug, I know I’m a bit extravagant, but it’s because I love it – so I start putting money aside early on 🙂
What are you getting your better-half for Christmas? Have you already thought about it?

We usually spend a good amount on each other for Christmas, but this year we’re doing a $20 limit. Instead, we’re buying a DSLR and a new TV “for each other.” However, these items will likely be purchased before Christmas, on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

@kmsw I’m registered for that same decanter!! I absolutely love it.
Since we are getting married so close after xmas and have a ton of expenses, our presents aren’t as excessive this year.
I already got his present- he loves Nautica and Hugo Boss, so I got him 2 Nautica wool sweaters and 1 Hugo Boss sweater…in his favorite colors: Blue, Gray and Black. Yeah, he’s a trend-setter that one! lol
We are going to honeymoon in VERY cold cities in Jan (Prague and Vienna) so they are meant for our travels to keep him warm. 🙂

Wow, what a lucky guy!
We’re going a little cheap this year for the holidays, since we have a new house and a new baby. My hubby has to take his second flight ever to be in a friends wedding soon, and it’s his first flight without me so he’s very nervous about it. So I’m getting him a necklace that has a traveler’s prayer on it. Oh, we’re Jewish so this is for Chanukah 🙂
And I’m going to get him a gift certificate to a restaurant and the movies. May not sound so special, but since we haven’t had a date night since our baby was born 3 1/2 months ago, I think he’ll be pretty excited!

We are technically not doing gifts this year since we just purchased a new home AND expecting a our first bbay. Our Xmas and bday gifts for the next two years will be our new kitchen with dream appliances.
But I’m sure I’ll still give him something small to open!
We’ve been doing that a lot lately as well. After 10 years together you start wanting big house items instead of stuff!
Hi Five! ( I know, I’m a dork, the hi five is for being kindred spirits. New House and New Baby)

Wow! I’ve always wanted to go to Prague AND Vienna!!! That’s wonderful! Before you go to Vienna you should watch the movie Princesse Sisi, it was my favorite growing up. And you’ll see tons of stuff about that over there! Have fun 🙂

We’re going less expensive this year–saving for a wedding and all–but I’m getting him cigars–he really likes them and I tend to get them for him every year.

For Christmas I’m knitting him a blanket with his family’s clan pattern (because a) I steal the blankets and b) he’s the youngest and won’t get family heirlooms) and buying him a subscription to his favorite magazine.
For his birthday (same week) he’s getting very good tickets to watch his team play my team.

My SO is Jewish, so I get him Hanukkah presents, but here’s what I’m getting him this year:
- Personalized flask
- Pocket watch
- Engraved neck tie
- Framed photo from my dog’s photoshoot (he will like it, I promise! haha)
- Vintage poker chip set/carrier
- I tshirt that says “I <3 My Lawyer” (I’m an attorney. lol)
- And basics like boxer, socks, and white tshirts.
We set a $200 limit this year, so I’ll probably be right around there. He’s lucky that he can spend all $200 on one present! I have to get 7!

I have no clue yet. :/
My husband’s birthday is November 27th & our anniversary is December 11th.
For his birthday I already know what I am getting him/doing. We are going on a trip to a beautiful little town in another state. Sighting seeing, going to a museum, ect.
Then for our anniversary, A tungsten bracelet or stainless. Which ever I find that he would like the most. As for Christmas I have no clue. I am thinking of getting him Dale Jr. Pj’s, Dale JR. floor mats for the car, Dale JR. boxers, Dale JR. steering wheel cover, ect.

I think DH is getting an iPad from me. He has come up with two less expensive items that he wants which I will pass on to my parents for their ideas. He hasn’t outright asked for the iPad but I know he wants it and just doesn’t want to ask for such a pricey gift.

Wow! They are all so close together, must be quite the challenge! That’s awesome though: I LOVE “trip” gifts 🙂

This year we are only getting the kids and our parents something. Because our wedding is almost 6 months away and we still have to get rings and book the honeymoon, we decided not to get each other anything this year.

We don’t do a bunch of little presents for each other; we set a budget and get each other one major thing we’ve been wanting. Honestly I’m giving him cash bc he wants a new exhaust for his quad. Idk, it’s not sweet and romantic to some but he’s as happy as kid! I am getting a treadmill bc my knees can’t take outdoor running anymore. 🙁 So excited to run whenever I want!
