Does he like sports?  You could get him an authentic jersey, I’ve done this a few times and he loved it.  Sadly, I’ve exhausted my options, NFL, MLB, College football.

Maybe talk to him about a joint gift, Decide together to spend $400 on a weekend getaway or something.  Hubby and I might do this with golf lessons.

By The Way, I LOVE that you set caps too!  We’ve been doing this for years and it makes things so much easier (usually!)

I’ve been having a tough time too…

So far this is what I’ve come up with:

Tickets to Rob Thomas and OneRepublic at Mohegan Sun (in CT)

Capcatcher Bottle Opener from http://www.capcatchers.com

Back to the Future Tshirt from http://www.bustedtees.com

and… I don’t know what else, still thinking. We usually spend around $150 or so.

What about a TV show box set? My husband always wants those of his fav shows, but never wants to buy them himself. Or even a few seasons of a TV show?

Any Bees have men in their lives who love to BBQ?  Some days, I think the boy loves that grill more than me (in fairness, the grill doesn’t give him crap about hanging up his coat in the closet) — maybe something grilling related?

@Minutae: lol @ caffeine patch and a ladle. ^_^

I have no idea what to get Mr Spin. I was thinking about buying Wii Olympic Games since it looks pretty fun but I feel like that’s a cop out since I got him a Wii game last year. 😛 And he hates to wear watches (which I find amusing since he has to wear one to take pulses at work) and doesn’t care about clothes. *siiiigh*

I got him a Venus flytrap for his birthday, which he thought was totally awesome, but sadly he left it  in my care and I killed it, so I definitely can’t get him anything alive this time. ^_^ I’m kinda thinking about trying to buy a neat fossil for my dinoasur fanatic…

Do not get me started on the grills! Just kidding. Seriously that boy has a grill addiction. We have more grillS than anyone we know. Yes, plural! =) What about a charcoal Weber Grill? The circular ones? It’s like the mecca for true grillers. =) Digital thermometer?
What kind of grill do you have? If it’s one of those super duper ones you can be attachment/accessories for it? Like Beer Can chicken props. Rotiserrie accesories?

Is he into smoking? If he is that opens up a whole new realm of possibilities!

Turkey Fryer Kit?

We have to buy for so many other people we agreed not to buy for each other this year. I know he’ll get me something small so I might just get little stocking stuffers for him to open Christmas morning. 

Do you have Wii? If he’s into gaming What about buying him one of the new Rockband games like the Beatles. I bought my Fiance the Star Wars game for his B-day – he’s kind of a geek like that.

A few more ideas:
– a professional old fashioned shave
– really nice high end sunglasses? (also great cuz he can use then on the honeymoon)
– a really good camera
– If he’s into sports: new set of golf clubs?
– If he’s into music: a new Guitar & lessons?

I bought Fiance this watch a while ago. Not sure if you have a Lord&Taylor near you but if you have a L&T card they send you TONS of mailers & coupons. I used it on the watch & then it was only like $80.

I was in the same boat then he told me he didn’t have emought to buy the x box 360 he wanted so i gave him half on it since he got the other half for free for turning in another system and other games.  The only thing is im not going to let him have it till christmas lol ;p.

“When I asked HIM what he wants for Christmas, he told me “cupcake and a bj”. Thanks for the help babe. ”

BWAAHAHAHA! That’s awesome! LOL

If he’s into sports – what about some kind of memorabilia? Fiance used to work for this company… it’s run by scumbags (he got laid off) but they have great stuff.

Whoever mentioned golf clubs just saved me! My boy is a few crutial clubs short of a full set. So he can’t even play right now.

One year, I got the boy a valet box from Pottery Barn. I got it monogrammed because he loves having his initials/name on things. It was a great budget gift because he needed a place to put his wallet/phone/keys when he walks in the house. I think they still sell them.

Also, if anyone usually gets lingerie as a gift supplement, I switched to bra & pantie sets a few years ago since it’s a good excuse to buy cute underwear and you can get more use of it!

Also, I’d check overstock.com for anything you’re considering that’s possibly expensive.

My boyfriend LOVES sports and loves the greenbay packers so I got him this sports collage with his name on it. (and of course it has the packers on it, not the steelers)

I know he will love it
