Last year money was super tight because we were saving for the wedding, so we each got each other a pair of boots. this year, money is a little bit better, but now we are saving for our baby who is on the way! I really have NO idea what to get him, i feel like he is the guy who has everything. I was thinking about asking him if he wanted to NOT get presents for each other this year, and just go to Hawaii sometime in early 2012 before the baby comes.

I always thought trip gifts are just awesome! I feel like a NICE homecooked meal is always a great addition to anything 🙂

I think we are going to do small gifts this year $100 or less, because we are taking a vacation to Florida in May and our paying for our wedding next year. That is enough lol.

My DH has such expensive taste (unfortunately for me!!)…I know he has been eyeing a pair of John Varvatos boots..so that will be his 1 present this year =)
(Then again I asked him for either an iPad or a DSLR camera…so I guess I’m just as bad!!)

If all goes as planned, we’ll be getting each other a puppy for Christmas! If not, then I’ll probably get him the Apple TV that he’s been wanting for a while.

We both want to get PADI (scuba) certified, so maybe we give each other the classes as an X-Mas present. That’s more than I was thinking we should spend, since we just got married and went on a nice honeymoon, but we’ve been wanting to do it forever and I think both of us are all out of gift ideas (since we gave gifts on our wedding day). It wouldn’t be a surprise, but it would take the pressure off Christmas shopping for each other… we haven’t shopped for family yet since we’ve been so focused on the wedding.

Money is tight, so we may skip presents for each other concentrating on getting soemthing for family and our nieces and nephews. We are trying to sent his mom on cruise so thats our #1 priority. We probably get something for each other in the days or weeks after Xmas. He’s a huge James Brown fan, so if I end getting him something it will be set of his concert DVDs or CD Box sets. He’ll love that.

oooh they must be nice!!! My guy doesn’t really know anything about that stuff, but I still get it for him… I think he’s starting to like it 🙂

- Wedding: January 2011 - Gardens of the World
This year Im getting my husband a new lens for his DSLR, the last book in the Game of Thrones trilogy (he already has the other ones), a t-shirt with a scene from Walden (his favourite book), and probably some boxers because he needs them. Our anniversary is two weeks after Christmas, and then his birthday and Valentine’s day are the month after, so coming up with gifts for those dates is going to be the hard part! Im thinking of making him a photo album of our dating years for our anniversary, and surprising him with a weekend trip to a nearby city for his birthday. He always tells me “experiences are more important than gifts” anyway so in the future I hope I can buy him more experiences 😛

– a new watch, the one I gifted to him 2 years ago broke 🙁
– an airplane/boat model. He always looks at them, but refuses to buy one for himself.
– PJ pants! It’s a tradition that I give all the men in my life (my dad, brother, SO’s brother, his dad) really comfy PJ pants for Christmas. SO’s brother still raves about how comfy the ones he gets are.
– some sort of cooking utensil he wants. which I still haven’t figured out yet.

I feel very mean with what I’ve got mine so far! We’re quite strict on budgets this year so I’ve ordered him a pair of watch cufflinks (as he’s always moaning about not being able to see his watch when he wears a shirt with French cuffs) and a cast iron poffertjespan (which I had to order from Holland as I couldn’t find any in the UK).
Oh, and I’m getting him an A3 print of my favourite boudoir photo.
I’ll get him lots of little silly things in the run up to Christmas, but those are two of the biggies.
His birthday’s 2 January so I’ve still got to think about that.

We are kind of broke this year… oh, let’s be honest, we’re kind of broke every year 🙂 So we usually buy each other one big present, but already know what it is cause they’re usually things we can do together, like last year it was bicycles. I think this year we’ll buy each other tickets to see Ron White come do stand-up – those suckers are expensive but SO worth it, he’s hilarious. We also always buy each other a special ornament representing the past year.
Now just to figure out what to buy him for his birthday (Dec 15th!)…
ETA I also will stuff his stocking with treats and funny boxers and kitchen gadgets 🙂

Christmas is going to be a smaller gift (I got him an Ipad for his birthday) but I’m still blowing it out of proportion.
I’m going to get him wooden spoons and a baked donut pan and a cinnamon donut mix.
