dh has a humidor made of carbon fiber instead of wood and apparently that is better at keeping humidity levels.

I wonder if that's something that he would really need to pick out himself, KWIM?

I'm really not sure if they are cubans or dominicans. I do know that he can only find them at 2 cigar shops in NYC. He left today for a bachelor party in Cancun, but I'll be sure to ask him when he gets back. Whatever they are, he LOVES them!!!

So now I have no ideas.
Derek does that to me all the time. I hate that. this year i told him i wasnt exchaning gifts with him and when he asked why, i said cause you cant wait till xmas to buy yourself stuff you end up going out to get it in December usually after i already got it, so then i have to tell you what a i got, what's the point i'd rather just give him the money so he can get it for himself. Well he wanted to do xmas exchange so he promised not to buy anything. It's pretty funny last week he called for permission to get thermals for work. I started laughing.

For gifts this year we werent going to get anything big just small stuff and a stocking, but now since we won fantasy football we got a little extra to spend for xmas. The only thing i know i'm definately going to get him is a Braun electric razor. he really wants it. i think it's $250 at BBB and i can use my 20% coupon so it works out good.

OMG I've been researching cigars for DAYS!!! I'm trying to find cigars that FI will love and hasn't had that have GREAT ratings. He has books w/ directories of cigars. Suggest these to try:

Ashton Virgin Sun Grown Torpedo- Dominican- #5 cigar of 2007 (done Jan. of each yr)

Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles-Nicaraguan-#15 of '07. Quoted as be that powerful Corona you need to make the day right. Only $5.50 each

The Edge Sumatra Toro- Honduran-#24 of '07 only $5.25

These 5 are considered to of the strongest cigars:

La Flor Domincana Double Ligero Chisel
Camach Triple Maduro
San Christobal by Ashton
EO 601 Blue Label Maduro
Oliva Series V Torpedo

I am going to get the screen on his iPod fixed! Our overactive dog chewed it and I knew he won't buy a new once since it's still works except for the screen, but he's also the type of guy that won't research out how to get something like that done. I'm trying to figure out something else small too but I haven't found something I like yet.

 

On the man cave, my FI will never really have one since I will soooo be in there. We usually watch sports together and have a 50in TV in the living room. Plus I can kick his butt in pool and Foosball so I don't know what he'd do different in there...LOL.

A Vox petal for his guitar, a joe satriani shirt, a dream theater poster and shirt, and some cables and cords for his guitar.

 

I'm also going to get him some stocking stuffers.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
