So far I have got him an iphone cover with pics of our holiday on, and an Inbetweeners book. I prob won't get him a 'big' pressie, just a few smallish ones.
Please share, to give me ideas!

From me I'm considering a Sky Diving experience, Golf Club Membership or a weekend away but can't make up my mind!
From the kids we do a hamper which will include some of these- socks, tie, pants, whisky, fun toy (usually something remote control), DVDs, aftershave, shirt, shorts, polo shirt, photo canvas or frames of kids, desk calendar of the kids... Boring essentials and a few gimmicky things as my H is the sort to buy what he wants when he wants it.
Well so far he's getting a Family Guy t-shirt and Looper on DVD. He won't be getting much more to be honest, perhaps some nivea for men stuff.

We're spending all our pennies on the house so setting a limit of £10 like we did on Valentines Day, so it has to be thoughtful or possibly handmade. It makes it more interesting and can be good fun.
So I'm no help for you I'm afraid. How about a Christmassy jumper, there's loads of lovely woollies in the shops, very cute!

hes going to munich to watch man city v bayern munich and thats counting as his christmas tbh but i wanted something for him to open so im considering a wine club membership or a decent set of headphones as we have a new computer that he keeps attempting to dj on (i use the word dj loosely )

I did think about a butchering class but hten he got all d1ckhead about it so I gave up on the idea. This was before we had our talk so I may look into rebooking it.

A rocket launcher for his big trak. I found it on Amazon this morning and decided its just the sort of useless thing he would love. It'll get played with on the day and then probably ut in the attic along with the big trak, but who cares right?

Well since the beer making kit I bought last Christmas is still unopened in the garage, I think I might re wrap it and give it to him again!

One way to save money Pingu

I honestly have no idea this year. He's a bit of a movie buff so maybe some blu-rays and a phone cover of his son.

I haven't posted much over here on ot so I don't really 'know' any of you so I hope you don't mind me posting!
Belle that is a great idea thank you for posting the link I think you may have sorted out my h's pressie! I bought him a voucher for a Jamie Oliver cooking class a couple of years ago and loved it, I know he would love this too!

Oh dear, I haven't even thought about it! Instead I've been trying to think of something nice to do for his birthday, which is right after New Year. I usually get him some sort of DVD or bluray box set, and computer games.

No worries LuLu, it looks great and you actually get to keep the meat as well! Bargain price for that I think.

He's getting a 50% share in a baby. That'll do him I think!
17/10/2013 at 15:48
Sange , you're on the right track there.. infact I'll tell my H he's not getting a present, I bore him children didn't I ?!

Yes definitetly a bargain my h will love it. Have you eaten at Barbecoa? It is really lovely.
17/10/2013 at 16:40
