A cologne set for Christmas, he’s out and needs it. And a graduation present that’s either going to be a watch or a pen with the caduceus symbol on it.

yogabride2018 :  My fiance does that too! We both have Amazon Prime, so whatever he wants, he buys. On occasion, he’ll make a comment about something being cool or that he wants but wouldn’t buy himself. So I made him an Amazon wish list, and just pull things off there for his birthday/Christmas.

We tend to go all out at Christmas. This year I bought him flights for his last backpacking trip across Asia before TTC. 

Last year was an apple watch, year before that Nintendo switch, previous to that a new iPhone…and we also do extra gifts like clothes and accessories, stockings, etc

We are just about to complete on our house and our wedding is 4 months out so we are sticking to a £30ish budget. I’ve got him a new wallet and am going to get him some chocolates. I have asked him for a new dressing gown. Rock and roll!!!

MissCtoMrsR :  Oh my goodness that is so funny because I just ordered it the other day!!! We are redoing our bedroom and he is gone for 5 days hunting so I want it to be at least mostly finished by the time he comes home. Our bedroom is grey and white and when I saw that I said “That HASSSS to go on our bed”. It should be in tomorrow!

Either a professional massage session or one of those back massagers that goes on chairs. Just depends on our budget next month. I’m leaning toward a professional massage for xmas and the massage chair for his birthday on January.

A hug? Broke as a joke here too. It’s really killed my Christmas spirit because for one, he loves gifts. And for two, I can actually THINK OF THINGS HE HASNT BOUGHT HIMSELF YET which is typically very unusual. Ugh…

We do plan on taking a trip for our anniversary in March because by then things will have (hopefully) turned around so maybe we will just celebrate late. I’m usually DONE at this point, and I haven’t even bought the first thing yet this year. I’ve got 4 nephews, a niece, a stepson and a daughter to shop for! 😳

SO is a Marine whose Xbox was stolen while home on leave…so I decided to get him a new one! Can’t wait to see his face when he opens it.

We aren’t exchanging gifts, but will put money towards our trip to London to visit his grandparents. He will get a few things to go in his stocking though – christmas ornament (exchange a special one every year to add to the collection), fun socks, carry-on cocktail kit for the plane, British chocolates/crisps, homemade cookies.

We aren’t giving gifts to each other this year, we went on a vacation instead BUT I was original going to plan a little weekend getaway for us. 

I was also thinking of a new geeky gamer computer idea like a graphics card or something or a new video game for him to play. I’m actually glad that I don’t have to think about it.

blushingbee2019 :  we also exchange ornaments every year! We pick our favorite ‘memory’ from that year and get an ornament to represent it and then we tell why it was our favorite. It’s nice because we have those memories for when we decorate our tree for the following years. 🙂

We decided to keep things smaller this year due to our impeding move and wedding, as well as our goal to get our finances in order by the new year! So we set a $50 gift limit (I’m getting him a laser tag set and some beard stuff haha!) plus stocking stuffers (probably socks, candy, and other little things) and then we have a Christmas Eve tradition of exchanging a pair of new PJs and either a book, movie or video game (this year I’m getting him a video game).
