    Default Romantic gifts? Help please!

    I want to get something romantic for dh for Christmas and he's very difficult to buy for. Can anyone think of any romantic things to get? I am fresh out of ideas and time is running out! Help!

    I have a set of "Love" card game called Truth or Dare. Maybe check out your local game store and come up with a romantic twist on a regular game. Twister is a lot more fun with a lot less clothing. *whistling innocently*

    Car loan (ugh, again!)
    Husband's debt to work on, mine is gone except car loan. w00t!

    Yah, I suck at this money stuff, I know. That's why I'm here.

    Do you want romantic, or sexy? I always thought romance was more about the atmosphere than stuff. A private dinner, an emotional card, a long walk on the beach (or the park) etc.

    Sexy, on the other hand is pretty easy. Silk boxers and a can of whipped cream....

    Why you naughty thing you! LOLOL! Twister could be fun without clothing....hhmm. Wonder if the kids would be wondering about all of the laughter standing outside our door? We could play it in the middle of the night though...lol. I've never heard of that card game, but I gave him some of those "love" die one year.

    What about a coupon booklet that has some personal pages (ie..a back massage,a foot rub or whatever you want to the coupon to be) that your dh can redeem whenever he wants?

    You could even do a Kid-Safe version for opening at Christmas time and a non-kid-safe version to give him later.

    wow do I have something on my brain or what? LOL!

    Huh....call me weird. I made dh a flannel quilt the first Christmas we were together...he loved it so much because I had NO money, but I used scraps and made him a gift....almost 20 years later, it was thread bare, but he still loved it. I snuck it away and re sewed it where needed, put new borders on it and new batting...and quilted it on a longarm so it would hold together. It was his favorite gift....again.

    I'm joining this thread as I need ideas too. I like the idea of the coupon book - it's very frugal too!!

    My partner likes it when I make photo books for him filled with pictures of me or us together. I used blurb.com for the last one, but you could always stick to a traditional photo album.

    I agree with FrabjousDay. Instead of a regular photo album, you could also make him a scrapbook filled with photos and special memories of times that you've spent together through the years. Many craft stores carry lines of premade scrapbook albums where all you have to do is add photos, your own personal mementos or keepsakes, and journaling.

    You could also give him a very special card or letter telling him how you feel and put it in the front or back of the album.

    Might want to think of it from his point of view - what does he consider romantic? Lord knows that men and women have different views of romance!!
