Gifts for Men????

Recommended Posts

Ok, so every year, on every possible gift giving occasion I struggle to get my FI a gift. He tells me he doesnâ€t want anything and he is so hard to buy for. So on May 3rd itâ€s his 34 birthday. We happen to be going to Riviera Maya from April 27th to May 2nd for a friendâ€s DW. I was thinking of doing something there, but Iâ€m not coming up with anything (and my hotel/TA wasnâ€t helpful). I was thinking of a romantic dinner on the beach but I accidentally told him and I canâ€t do it now. He isnâ€t active, not into music, and no watches or jewelry. Iâ€m already getting him BD pics for the wedding that I have somehow already managed to keep secret.

 

I know I canâ€t be the only one who struggles to get gifts for the guy in their lives. Does anyone have any ideas or cool gifts they got or did for their man? In Mexico/vacation or not? Iâ€ll take ANY idea!!

 

Thanks!!!

Well, what about a money clip or maybe a gaming console or game he really wants or likes. What about golf clubs? I know you said hes not active, but maybe it will lite a fire under his butt and make him go out :P Im having a really hard time of thinking up something for my FI too so I can relate. He literally has EVERYTHING! The one thing he didnt have was a complete gym setup, and low and behold... HE BOUGHT HIMSELF THE SETUP 2 NIGHTS AGO! I cant win haha. Good luck!!!

my FI is soooo hard to shop for as well. I have resorted to doing special gifts for his bday and "normal" gifts for the other occasions, lol.

 

last year i got him a BMW racing experience. it was for the track in vegas so after his bday we saved some money and made a great trip out of it...went to the grand canyon and hoover dam :)

this year i got him a german bible printed in 1756 that we saw at an antique store. it was funny b/c when i went to get it the seller said there was an english man interested in it....my FI of course...so i had to bat my lashes to get him to lower the price and sell it to me instead. a few days ago, my FI came home upset b/c the bible was sold to "some chick". ha ha...his bday is on weds...can't wait to see the look on his face!!

 

so i guess just think of "normal" things your FI likes (cars, antiques, etc) and give them a creative twist! good luck :)

My hubby is an EBAY nut...comic books, yeesh...so when I don't know what to get him an Ebay gift certificate is always a welcomed gift.

 

Inside tip from my hubby...men actually like gift certificates wink.gif It made my life a whole lot easier when he told me this.

Thanks for the replies! Well, my FI doesn’t really golf and neither do his friends, but maybe we can do it together. I could always buy us some lessonshuh.gif

 

Hmmmm, my FI’s hobbies and interests are movies and politics.

 

I did get my FI a weekend to the Pocono’s to go skiing. We don’t ski, but we thought it would be fun. I would get us a trip to some where but we are already going to Mexico and Aruba this year.

 

Thanks for the help. If I come up with something good I will let you guys know!

these might be kind of out there.... but does he smoke cigars? that was my surprise wedding gift to my FI (now DH) and the groomsmen (i just could not think of ANYTHING) and it was amazingly a big hit! ironically, i cannot STAND smoke. ha!

 

the other thing could maybe be boudouir picshuh.gif i know a couple of friends who have done this and it was well received.

 

i agree. guys are so hard to shop for. my DH 30th was two months before the wedding!!!
