My Fiance is impossible to shop for…I did find a cool NES/SNES gaming system on ThinkGeek, though – it’s compatible with both types of games! I think he would really like that.

My Fiance is nearly impossible to shop for. He is one of those guys who is like a big kid, with money. If he sees something, he thinks about it for 5 minutes and then goes and buys it for himself. The only things like that he won’t buy, are clothes. I suppose clothes are what you get for Christmas when you are a hard-to-buy for grown-up. His mother and I are always scheming to try and get him something he will like. The issue is that he will think of something and put it on ‘the list’ and 2 days later he has already bought it. Go figure.

J is getting a big helping of I-spent-$1100-on-a-flight-to-see-you for Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll probably get him something smaller too though… not sure what. Just barely managed to get his birthday present in the mail last week.

I’m planning on checking out the Best Buy Black Friday sale that has the PS3 plus 2 games for $299  We always had a running joke that he couldn’t get a PS3 (we already have the Wii and Xbox 360 in our house) until I got a ring… well he Proposed so it’s only fair that I hold up my end of the deal ๐Ÿ™‚

My fi wants at PS3 to go along with is wii, xbox 360, playstation 2, and game cube. I really don’t know where he’ll fit it but he’s determined to have one.

*sighs* but I told him we couldn’t afford it this year and he’s settling for guitar lessons at a local shop and a guitar that I already bought him (lol–I am soo bad with presents).

He also loves Link form Legend of Zelda and I’m planning on getting him a shirt or shot glasses (since he wants some) with the triforce on it Laughing Etsy…here I come ;P

We’re adopting our little bulldog baby Maisie on Friday, so I think she’ll be kinda our present to each other.  I’m thinking about getting him a massage and some small little things ๐Ÿ™‚

Um. I don’t know. We might do a joint present. Like a weekend away together. We have joint bank accounts now. Might be a little silly to get each other gifts.

I got him the comlete series of Firefly, but I want to get him a couple other little things as well. But my Fiance also likes to get the stuff he wants the second he decides he wants it. lol.

My SO just celebrated his birthday and I got him a PS3.  They cost $299, and I wasn’t able to find it on sale.  The games are pretty expensive too, between $30 and $60.  I don’t think either of us will be spending much money on each other for Christmas.  We each have a large family and that takes up a big chunk of our Christmas cash, so we usually just go out to a nice dinner with each other and get each other something small.
