milksteak :  Goose Egg. Lol. We end up buying everything that we want / need throughout the year so holiday shopping is always a struggle. Plus, we just bought 2 flat screen tvs and sound bars. And I just went on a shoe shopping spree. That’s more than enough! Christmas came early for us.

Iโ€™m getting my husband a 12 days of Sexmas string of gifts. One dirty gift a day for 12 days plus the joys of using them that night ๐Ÿ˜‰

We decided to stick with affordable gifts this year and put more money toward next year’s vacations, so I’ve gotten him a few small things so far:

T-Rex fossil thing that you pick out of a rock (he’s into fossils and digging)
Kraken t-shirt (fascinated by octopi)
Squatty potty as kind of a gag gift -he always tags me in their commercials with the unicorn so I had to order one
Death star ice mold for his scotch (Star Wars fanatic)

and I think I’ll get him a bath robe from Kohl’s.

Darling Husband and I are not buying eachother gifts this year. We decided to spend money on experiences instead of things. The cash we would have spent on eachother will be used instead on a trip to Belize in 2018.

milksteak :  so far I’ve got him:

-Every day eau de toilette

-‘Fancy’ eau de toilette

-Tracksuit for lounging around the house

-Electric razor

Then I’m getting him either a Fred Perry polo shirt or a coat, and then a stocking with hot sauces, drinks, snacks, sweets, socks and underwear.

I get him pretty much the same stuff every year as he’s really fussy and hard to buy for.

milksteak :  With me and my SO being newlyweds this Christmas, there won’t be a lot of extra spending. But we decided on filling up each other stockings and so far all that I have planned to get him is beef jerky (one of his favorite things), but besides for that I have been on Amazon constantly trying to see what I can find. He loves tools and guns, but those are kinda out of the price range this year. Hope you are able to find something to give your SO. Good luck!!

He loves fantasy football so I got a custom engraved beer glass with his league and team name. But I’m stumped on what else! Keep the ideas coming!

I’m getting him a snowblower to make cleanup easier and to protect his back, and then a few little gifts like gloves and other things I know he likes. Last winter he hurt his back as we shoveled together. ๐Ÿ™

I got him a snazzy Suunto watch with all kinds of crazy GPS stuff on it, customized all black and engraved with “Adventure is Worthwhile” on the back. It was 50% off on Cyber Monday which made me so happy because I had previously told him it was out of my price range ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Also getting him the fancy beard moisturizer he likes but won’t buy for himself because it’s expensive. Our anniversary is 4 days before Christmas and one of the traditional first wedding anniversary gifts is a timepiece, so this doubles as a Christmas and Anniversary gift.

Blackhawks jersey! The Reebok ones are such good prices since the sponsorship switched and he would throw a fit if I bought one at full price. *eye roll*

I thought about getting him a wooden watch from etsy, anyone have advice for this?

Coregami Tux shirt, tortoise floor mats for his car, maybe some Dota 2 merch, and maaaybe a watch. I’d want him to pick out the watch, though.

hampsterdance :  I saw one of those at Costco, I almost got him one except he wouldn’t like 1/3 of the beer in it. So I went and bought 24 cans and have wrapped them individually for him to open at night after work lol. 

Keeps him from doing my Lego advent calendar ๐Ÿ˜‰
