I don't want to buy Mustang parts for my dh for Christmas. His fixer upper from when he was 16. Gah!(but I will consider it)

Just curious, what things you are looking into and it might give me some ideas. :swave: Men are not easy to buy for, at least in this house.

ETA, I meant SO in the title too.

DH asked for a video game. That was all he wanted. I'm not sure what else to get him! I will probably get some candies and treats for his stocking. Sorry, I'm no help! I need ideas too:)

Last year he got some tee-shirts so I was thinking some work shirts. But I tell ya, they have to feel soft or a certain fabric, or he won't wear 'em. He has a shirt phobia. :laugh:

Maybe a MU or Chiefs sweatshirt and cologne is all I can think of...so far.

A car book he's been wanting (Snake vs Mongoose), a new printer (he's always swearing at his cuz the paper doesn't feed properly), and I'm thinking a new drill (his doesn't hold a charge anymore).

I always get him new socks & boxers too.

ETA: he got two gifts early...a video game that he's been waiting for YEARS to come out (GT5) and a book to go with it.

DH and I rarely give each other gifts since we take our family vacation for Christmas and that is our gift to each other. However, I did get him a couple of shirts last week and I'm getting him a new belt. I'll take them on the trip with us and let him have them Christmas morning when the kids get their gifts.

I got DBF:
a huge drill bit set - we broke a bunch of his working on a project this summer.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season II on DVD - when we downgraded the cable we no longer got Cartoon Network and he loves this show. I think he got season I last year for his BDay

A flashlight that plugs into the lighter in your car - got all the men in my family one of these

A pewter ring that says "Strength" on the outside and Phil 4:13 on the inside and a leather bracelet that says "Cross Trainer" - he is a strength and conditioning coach and I thought these would be a subtle way to show his faith at work

Santa brought him socks in his stocking

He wants a pocket measuring tape, cahart shirts, a special coupon book from me made by me. Some smoked salmon for a stocking stuffer, a small am/fm radio, a mailbox flag.

Hubby's list was quite varied and had some expensive wants and some expensive needs. Many of the things that are needed for the PD are not provided, so we buy and take the tax deduction. Hubby's pretty good about asking for those items for Christmas and birthdays.

But this year, I decided to go with his wants vs. his needs because quite honestly, who just wants to get needs for Christmas? His parents are giving him cash and Visa giftcards that he can use for his needs.

So off his list, I purchased him a heavy bag (punching bag) and the thing to hang it, the stabilizer for it, etc. That left me with about $100 left from the amount we budget for each other, and as a super special surprise, I have been squirrelling away money to buy him a PS3. I already bought him the Call of Duty: Black Ops game that he wants for it. I am About 50$ short of goal, but I'll make it!

For his stocking, I purchased a hot spice from Penzley's spices, habanero pistachios, and a 25$ gift card to a local bar/grill for 2$ from restaurant.com

I bought DH an Xbox 360 and two games to go with it. I am also buying him a new travel tote for his razors and so forth ( I can't remember what the heck those things are called ). And I am buying him a new iron (he irons his clothes in the evening and has been asking for one for a while now )
