Ugh. We set caps of $200, which isn’t enough to buy him a really nice watch. Here’s the kicker–he has clothes, doesn’t need anything, doesn’t really have any specific hobbies, and isn’t really “into” anything. What to get a guy who isn’t picky?! What are you getting yours?

Ugh, I’m having this same problem. There’s a sweater at J. Crew he likes, and a couple of DVDs he wants… but that all seems so very not-special. I want to get him one big thing but man, he doesn’t need anything!

Me too. My sister and I were going to go in together on a Wii for my fiance, then my aunt/uncle, parents and grandparents stole it from us! I guess I will get him some random little things – dvd’s, itunes gift card… My sis is getting him the extra controller and some games for the Wii. Eh, guys are hard!

Agh, I struggle with this as well. He’s got it so easy because anything that shows up in a Little Blue Box will make me squeal with joy but I have no clue what to get him. Plus, his birthday is freaking December 4th, so I’ve got a double gift whammy! I think he wants a few video games, but yeah — that seems really unspecial.

I think I’m getting the big guy a BluRay player. They have one on sale at Target on Black Friday for $150 + $20 Target gift card. Every freakin’ time we start up the DVD player, he’s like, “if only we had a BluRay player…” Plus BluRay disc prices are going way down and lots of players are streaming Netflix. So I think it’s a win-win.
For your guy, maybe a PSP or Nintendo DS? Would he get any use out of that? Or a nice coat?

Well our one year anniversary is just a few days before Christmas so either basketball tickets or picture frames with pic of us and some decorations for his new place…It really depends on what I get!

@hotchild: Make sure you do your research on blu-ray players! My man has one and it hasn’t been reading the discs properly, so it pauses every few minutes. Boooo.
MinMan has expensive hobbies; recording music, tech stuff, cooking. Maybe I’ll get him a caffeine patch and a ladle. Or I’ll get some ribbon and wrap myself up in my birthday suit. Easy peasy.

$200…isn’t too little for a really nice watch. You just have to really keep your eyes out for deals. Sites like Hautelook, Gilt, RueLaLa always have watches on sale there. The other day there were Omega watches for ~$150. I got the Fiance a Skagen watch from Gilt for $50! They are super nice & slim.
There’s got to be something they really want but will not tell you they do! Just keep your ears peeled.
- Weekend Getaway?
- Are they into cooking?
- Tickets to sports games? concert tickets?
- Favorite Sports Team? Get them a really cool collectors memorbilia item?
The Fiance & I are combining our engageaversary & Christmas gift into one. We’re going back to the cabin where we got engaged as Christmas gift for each other. =)
If you are thinking about a BluRay player I would really recommend getting a PS3 instead. The quality is insane good and it’s a upconverter as well for DVDs. And you get a gaming system!

Okay so I’m not the only one with no ideas! He has an XBox and already told me he doesn’t want a new PS. Boo. And i bought him a nice coat last year.
My cop-outs are clothes (some funny t-shirts and a nice dress shirt or two), a steak dinner (gift card probably, but then i feel weird b/c i’m cashing in on it, too!), a basket of horror movies he likes (i saved the zombie movie list hotchild made!)….ugh…..*blank mind*

@hotchildinthecity – Where did you find out what the black friday sales would be? My husband wants a portable DVD player and I figured there will be some great deals then but haven’t known where to go to see the deals.

I never know what to get my Fiance for X-mas, and to top it off his birthday is in December too! The last couple of years we have just gone on a weekend getaway over christmas break as our present to each other.

*snort* Caffine patch and a ladle. I vote for that!
