haha…guys and their obsession over electronics & gadgets!  my Fiance saw the nook (it’s like a kindle/e-book) on the barnes and noble website.  He told me he wants a nook for Christmas…but he doesn’t even read that much! I think I’m going to buy him a video cam this year.

I was thinking about getting FH a toaster oven…or is that lame? He said my mom could get him one for his new apartment when I said she was excited to get him stuff for his new place (but she isn’t doing big gifts this year, just money) so I thought I would take the idea. But I feel like that might be a little impersonal. He’s so hard to shop for.

Thoughts?

Ugh, my Fiance is so hard to shop for! He always says “I don’t need anything” or “give some money to charity”, it makes me crazy. For his birthday a few weeks ago I said I would pay for the new tattoo he wants, but he hasn’t “cashed in” yet. 

Christmas is going to be absolutely impossible. He mentioned wanting a wine decanter and one of those fancy aerator things, and even though I told him we should just register for them, I think I’ll buy them myself, haha!

We don’t really spend a whole lot on eachother at Christmas. I’m thinking about getting him a leather valet charging station cause a) he’s always leaving little piles of change around my apartment and it makes me INSANE b) his phone is always dying.

Then maybe some DVDs that I knows he wants. He also wants a bamboo lap desk (?!?!) so… yeah.

Fiance and I aren’t going all out for christmas really. We know we are saving for the wedding, so we are just getting a few little things for each other and are going to spend the rest on family. I’m going to get him a few shirt/tye sets for sure, since he just started his new job and rotates the same 3 that he has. good thing he gets to wear business casual 2 days a week! And then i’ll probably get him a couple signs and stuff for the garage we just finished this year. I really wish i had the money to spend though because there is this fridge that looks like a tool box but its like $400 and i’m not spending that much on him this year! next year though. πŸ™‚

He’s building our house, and everytime he needs a new tool “for the house,” we’ve bought it. Sort of spoils my buy-him-a-new-tool for every holiday run. Plus, we need to save money for the house (I joke we’ll have lots of tools, but won’t be able to afford the materials)… so I think we are skipping presents?

we put a budget on christmas this year at $200. we tried to do this last year, and he blew the budget over 10x… but the year before we were successful in not doing christmas presents.

we’re trying to save for the house/wedding… so i’m going to get him things he needs: a new pair of speakers, undies, a weight bench, and maybe a new ps3 or wii game. but very minimal. πŸ™‚

A bowling ball πŸ™‚  which he already knows about because he’s mentioned it several times so I guess that’s what he gets :p

I’m also going to get him some new jeans because he never buys clothes for himself and it drives me insane.

We are not getting eachother anything, instead we are donating clothes and toys to shelters.  We just got married and we would rather spend the money we have on presents for children who actually need things.  I don’t even know if there is one thing that I really need in life right now.  I am very fortunate for what I have so we would like to give that back to the community.

Ugh, I have no idea! Our wedding is 6 days before Christmas and money will be pretty tight with getting gifts for families and all that. We said we’d put a $20 cap on each others’ gifts too. If I get something lacy for me, does that count as a present for him? lol.

@corgi – she posted a thread recently about what to get her Husband… including his response when asked what he wanted. I’d guess the coupon is for that πŸ˜‰

I’m getting him a zombie board game called “The Last Night on Earth”. He was telling me how much he wanted to play it last week and I figured I would get him something he would use a lot and enjoy.

I’m not sure…  We’re done with the wedding, honeymoon, and buying a house, and since are baby savings are coming along well, I think we can spulrge a little this year.  I was going to get him an lcd tv, because we’ve been savings up for it, but we had enough savings for that in Septmber, and now we have more than enough.

Here’s the things I have on my list this year (not sure what or how many of these I’ll buy though):  Madden NFL 10 for the Wii, Wii Sports Resort with 2 Wii Motion Plus Accessories, a really huge cheese basket, a new light winter jacket, a new Leatherman, and the new Mindlfex game.  I’m actually working on pricing stuff out right now.  πŸ™‚
