Wisconsin Death Trip  It’s a book.  Morbid, I know, but he’s obsessed with cemeteries and Victorian sculptures.  It was written by a prof at a neighboring college, and FI’s from Wisconsin, so it’s perfect

thats so funny… how funny are our FI’s and H’s with their video games… J wants a PS3 too and a Flat screen to go with it!! AHHH!!! Surprised but he promise that he would get our wedding bands…. so hopefully we will be going to pick them out soon!

I am struggling with this too! Fiance already has everything! I know what he’s getting me, too, so I feel I have to live up to it. I think I might get him a few things – a Mizzou snuggie, a book I know he’ll love, and maybe something else. Couple massages would be good but pricey!

 I am thinking of buying him a really nice leather belt and a new leather wallet. His current belt is pathetic and his wallet isn’t in much better shape.

Fiance LOVES gadgets, but he is so picky, I wouldn’t never pick out anythign for him myself. He needs to read hours worth of online reviews before he even comes close to comitting to buying a new gadget.

I’m getting my SO an ECU for his car because it’s what he wants and needs.  I also know that he has not been able to buy it because he’s been saving up money to buy my ring so I feel it’s only fair to help him out! 

It’s an expensive part so that will probably be the only thing I get him though I might throw in a video game somewhere if I get a good deal 😛

Dizzy, I’ve been wanting to read that book. I believe a movie was made of it, too. Very cool.

We ‘agreed’ to go light on the holidays this year with next year’s enormous expenses looming (wedding, moving, etc.) but I can’t help myself. I already have him a new leather jacket, nice Western shirt, season one of the remastered Star Trek: TOS, and a Batman book. But I really, really want to get him a netbook. He could really use it. I know he’ll fuss, but I’m so tempted to get it anyway.

Oh man, Fiance wants an xbox or PS3, but we set a rather tight limit this year, due to our wedding budget.  I’m actually not too sure what I should get him… Clothes, iTunes gift card, the Sookie Stackhouse “true blood” books… I’m drawing a blank on everything else!

We set a limit this year of £130 (about $210 methinks) so he’s getting:

 – rubber duckies cuz he LOVES his baths
 – a silly calendar for his desk in work
 – new sneakers
 – a beginners telescope <—- thats his main pressie!!

I do love buying stuff for him though….have to stop myself!! lol

I don’t really know yet. His birthday was just last week, and I spent $130 on that. I buy him clothes whenever I feel like it, so that’s not really a Christmas-worthy item.  I just have a few small ideas so far. I am definitely going to order some personalized M&Ms with “JC <3’s RS” or something like that on them, if I can pull it off without his knowledge.

I would love to be able to buy a new TV for our living room, but I just don’t have that kind of budget. He’s not into video games at all, so that’s out.  I would get him a nice watch, but I know he’d never wear it.

we go to a theme park every christmas (we’re jewish and it’s nice b/c it’s always so empty) that has lots of animals, and you can pay extra to get up close and personal to the animals and feed giraffes. he’s never done it and it’s pretty cool, so i think i’ll surprise him with that.

So far I got him this flashlight he’s wanted, he lost his other one, and I made him a shadow box that displays all of his zippo lighters. I stole them from him, he keeps the box in his dresser, I hope he doesn’t open that box till after christmas or he’s really gonna wonder what’s up.

Well.. we decided that this year all we are getting each other is coffee mugs. we decided last year that we would make it a tradition to at least buy each other Christmas coffee mugs every year. I love it and since it can be cheap it works great for our tight budget.
