My bf and I have been together forever. I have gotten him every video console, laptop, tablet...headphone and speakers. Clothes, shoes, boots, surprise NYE tix for his fav band....mini vacations, every DVD series he could want. We just got new phones a few months ago, we're going away for New Year...and he has enough clothes, socks and underwear.
I'm running out of ideas for a cool Christmas gift!! Usually by October I have my mind set, but this year I am at a total loss.
What would you guys like to get for Christmas this year? What has your significant other ever given you that speaks volumes?
Help me!!

Thanks!

    has he mentioned something in passing during the year? expressed an interest in something in causal conversation?

    I have a great memory bank for that kind of thing. he's been pretty quiet in that regard.

    So frustrating. I want him to be surprised but have a main present he will really love. uuugggh!

    I know you said you got him every DVD set, but they just came out with the 50th Anniversary set of the James Bond movies a couple of months ago. It has bonus material and stuff not on the previous versions.

    I don't know if your man cares for James Bond at all, but I don't think I've met a man who doesn't, so I thought I'd throw it out there.

  • 3 day weekend getaway...
    Is he a skier?
    Would he rather be at a beach?

    Buy a nice little 3 day weekend package somewhere.

    Just an idea.

    Wait a second...
    I see you are going away for New Years...
    Nevermind..

    Get him more socks and undies.
    You can never have enough!

    Does he wear jewelry?

  • Sprunkn7Sprunkn7 Posts: 3,084
    We are devils fans...so that leaves me limited this year! And jewelry. no.
    I'm starting to panic a little. Shit!

    get him a little blue car we used to race ;)

    I'm in the same boat, it gets tough, people have what they need and want,
    only so much stuff. I go in his closet and think he's got it all!

    No list from JB yet this year. The staples that he unusually likes each year new...
    slippers, robe, toothbrush replacements ...boring!

    I'll be racking my brain for awhile I think.

    I went to a store on line, Perpetual Kid, last year and found some fun little things for
    all the family, JB likes stuff like that for the office.
    I think I googled gag gifts and up it came.

    Happy Holidays Sprunkin
    I know you'll come up with something creative, something from the heart,
    something perfect knowing you ... you always do :D
    Thank you for your generous spirit in our Christmases past!

    Just let me known to be

    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

  • Since you got him headphones and music equipment... A subscription to Spotify or Rhapsody (10 a month) so he can access all the music he could ever want...

    My wife got me a year subscription two years ago and I am hooked

    Update. I got him a Widespread Panic laptop bag, a WSP bath towel and WSP chap stick. (uhh, he loves WSP) He also in the past mentioned a new airbrush. I remembered that recently (and he threw out a pretty big hint about it too) I went for that.
    Since we go to festivals I also purchased a power supply (one you can jump start a car, charge a phone, plug in lights etc.) and a mini Keurig so he can have his fave coffee when we're on the road. Good thing to shop on their sight, I had enough points to get it half price :D

    Add socks, a T-shirt from Kurt on Mind Crack and a few unmentionables from the back of Spencer gifts and I think I'm done!

    His stocking is all the unfun stuff. Deodorant, toothpaste, pistachios. But the ultimate that he loves loves loves but I refuse to buy any other time of year....squeeze cheese. and some triskets.

    Nothing say "i love you" like a brand new chainsaw.
