    What are you getting your oh from lo for Christmas.

    I've bought him an engraved wine glass from lo & his other 2 girls but I want to get him something special from lo as this is her first Xmas

    Any ideas???

    Baby and I are getting DH an iPad, which I figure is expensive but family members will chip in too.

    I was looking online earlier for ideas. I too was thinking mug and I also saw a book on Amazon called Daddy and Me which had some nice reviews. Think I might get that too, then if the mug breaks he'll still have something special to mark his first Christmas!

    Wonder what Daddy will be getting me from LO..........??? Hmmmmmm!!!!

    Do you really expect a present from your DH (LO)???
    Do not want to be offensive, but I think for many of us Christmas has become commercialised event with a lot of expecting from each other and often getting disappointed by not getting the "right" things.

    I think that's a bit of a sad view :( Personally I do expect my husband to get something for me 'from' lo - it's our first Christmas as parents and I think a daddy and mummy present is a lovely idea. I'm doing some credit card type wallet photos for him of lo and us as a family as he is away sometimes so it will be nice for him to carry them around. A present dorsn't need to be big or flashy, it's the thought behind the gift that is the special thing. So although I am 'expecting' a present, I really don't care what it is, it's the excitement of getting a present as a mummy that means the most!

    I think getting presents from lo is a lovely idea! We waited so long for our little girl and we are so proud to be parents for the first time this christmas that we are definitely doing this, I don't think it's being overly commercial, just enjoying this exciting time in our lives! I would like to get my husband a daddy mug, off to have a look at snapfish now.

    LO got DH cuff links that I can put a picture in. But, instead of a picture, I'm going to do his footprints in baby blue on white paper. My parents are helping me with getting the image sized.

    When he is older, I'll suprise him with new pictures - baby's artwork, etc.

    I've got OH an engraved silver guitar pick with a message from LO on a leather cord type thing to wear as a necklace. I was going to get dog tags but i know OH would prefer the guitar pick! It was expensive but I know he will love it so it's worth it for LO's first xmas!!
