He’s been asking for a toolbox so I got him a large tool caddy with wheels, it’s made of a thick plastic with a lot of compartments. Inside the large compartment, I’m going to try to stuff a Blu-ray player in it, he likes to watch movies! In the other compartments, I’m adding some chocolate and misc other stocking stuffers. The toolbox I bought awhile ago, it was supposed to have a new drill to go with it (to replace his broken one) but I have no clue which one to get. The Blu-ray player is a last minute find, it was on sale and I know he’s been dreaming of one to go with our new TV Smile

it’s so hard to shop for my husband for christmas, too!  he turns down every general ideal i have and he says that i should just “know” what he wants.  he doesn’t like the typical guy stuff…he doesn’t want video games or tools or sports stuff, he really likes magic tricks and stuff but he doesn’t want any of that, either.  i’m running out of ideals.  i was thinking about getting him a nice watch…but i dunno.  i hope you find something for your DH!

Well, Darling Husband keeps saying he doesn’t need/want anything, so I got him a watch (Gilt.com, so I got a good deal on it), a nice jacket, a new Cardinals t-shirt, and a container or toothpicks (inside joke). Last year i got him bacon seasoning, which was hilarious and awesome.

Darling Husband has since said he wouldn’t mind a closet steamer–it’s like a stand up thing you steam your clothes in (good for a guy who dresses nicely for work)…or a power washer. He appreciates when i get him dinner gift cards, too–because he always insists on paying for dinner. Bedroom coupons go over well, too. Sunglasses would be good, too–but he would have to pick those out himself. If he works out, you could get him a new duffle bag or nifty gym stuff–i always appreciate new stylish work out clothes (especially ones that are nicer than Target because I’m a cheapskate). Brookstone has really nice blankets and fun gadgets.

I’ve given up trying hard to give memorable gifts–it’s just too damn hard for men. Women are easy–get them a locket engraved with something sweet and they swoon, you know? I know you’re running out of time, but you could probably get a scrapbook type thing going on Shutterfly. But i made Darling Husband a scrapbook two years ago and men just don’t appreciate it the way women do =

I’m having trouble with ideas, too! Men are so much harder to shop for than women!! Good luck!

Last year I got him a shaving brush, shaving soap, and razer set from Acca Cappa. He LOVED it! He uses it all the time.

I got Darling Husband a wine fridge!  He’s been trying to convince me to get one for months and I keep telling him about how we don’t need a wine fridge, don’t have the space, etc.  So hopefully he’s surprised! 🙂

@Jenn23:

I agree, men are MUCH harder to shop for than women!  i keep trying to tell Darling Husband this, and he just doesn’t get it!  it’s so aggrivating.

since we have the wedding in (2 months!) we are not going all out on christmas presents. I bought him a wallet -exciting huh?- his is falling a part. I also bought him a bunch of car washing stuff.

We are keeping Christmas small this year: just one gift for one another (usually we go all out, but after the wedding, honeymoon and finally furnishing our house we want to tone it down a little for this year) and a few smaller things for stockings.

I got him a beautiful new winter coat. For his stocking I got him a new Indian cookbook (we have “Curry Sundays” in our house) and will probably get him a few other small things like a bookstore giftcard, and maybe a couple kitchen gadgets.

I’ve purchased several expensive things for the house this year (new furniture for our living room and a new TV after our old one died, along with a few video games Darling Husband had his eye on), so I’m sticking to a nice card and some stocking stuffers this year. I’d like to begin a tradition of giving each other an ornament every Christmas (this is our first Christmas together!) so I’ll run that past him as well and see what he thinks.

We gave eachother a $100 limit for presents. I got Darling Husband a nice knitted dress sweater, dress shirt, a game for his nintendo DS and a nerf gun. Yes, my 26 year old husband and his friends still play with nerf guns. I figure, it is what he wants (he gets excited looking at the flyers), and should hopefully score me some ‘cool wife’ points.
