    Default Christmas gifts for DH??

    I am so stuck on what to buy DH for Christmas

    I know what he likes - surfing, but he has everything he needs. When I ask him what he wants he says he has everything already

    Any suggestions?

    The usual things I get are boring like

    New shirts
    Thongs
    Collared shirts
    CDs
    Xbox games

    I've also bought him other stuff - tried to think outside the box- but when I do he normally doesn't use those things so its just a waste of money

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, he has a nice wallet which I bought a few years ago (surprisingly its lasted a long time actually!) and he doesn't wear a watch

    He's it two expensive ones which he got as gifts and never wears them

    See what I mean!! He's so hard to buy or as he actually has everything!

    I looked on red balloon to see if I could find an experience gift but turns out he's done all of that stuff too

    So far I've gotten DH things like, CD he really wants, thongs, new shorts (he really needs but never buys himself), casual shoes (again needs) & his fav fragrance (smells awesome!!)

    I'm not sure where u live or how much u want to spend but here are some different ideas I have previously done in the past:

    - good pair of sunnies

    - gift voucher for an hour massage

    - movie tickets (can even do gold class if u want) & u get a date night out of it too

    - does he wear jewelry? They are a few bits & pieces on sale. I got DH an awesome watch last yr at a great price & u can even engrave it.

    - gym membership

    - a nice framed photo of you both to put on the wall

    - wk end away for the both of you

    - Now, depending on what sort of things u like, a Karma Sutra book or other things along those lines. (just make sure these things aren't accidentally wrapped up & placed under the tree, may be embarrassing, lol!)

    If he's into Star Wars/Star Trek/Halo, etc, then lego is always awesome and you're never too old for it.

    Remote control cars.

    He likes Star Wars but he's not the type to build collectible things

    He also has a remote control helicopter which he doesn't use

    But thanks for the ideas, keep them coming

    Oh, also if he's a guy that likes tattoos & really wants one more, can always go for an appt....for something different.

    Has he done one of those Flight Experience things (simulated flying of plane)?

    Is he into fishing/4WDing? All 4 Adventure website have some great stuff or you could get him a magazine subscription for 12 months.

    I have just night DH a beard trimmer (which he now says he might shave off :-/) and a t-shirt and cap from All 4 Adventure.

    Does he like any television series, you could the boxes sets for him?

    Doe he like fish? You could get him a fish tank with all the bits and bobs and a few fish for him - tropical are nice and easy to maintain...

    Or some Makita tools - I know that they do up a nice pack with a set of tools in it...

    I'll keep thinking...
