    Well I am sure I am not the only one trying to think of something to by for their OH, so I thought it might be worth starting a thread for ideas.

    My hubby is a bit of an adventurer and last year I got him a go pro action video camera (that attaches to his helmet). I think I really excelled myself, but this year I need to top it. lol.

    So ladies, what are you buying him?

    Currently i've got him:

    HD Camcorder
    Memory Card
    Tripod
    2 x T-Shirts
    Lynx Set
    Lynx Manwasher
    Nivea Q10 set
    Self stirring mug
    Socks
    Pocketboom speaker
    Iphone sticky pad
    micro iphone lens

    ... but most of those are stocking fillers so desperately looking for more ideas!! x

    My hubby wants the PS4, pre-ordered it by god knows when it will arrive. He plays squash and badminton so will order him some sports kit.
    Just trying to make a stocking up, found some nifty little DIY gadgets, going to order some Autoglym stuff for cleaning his car (and mine hopefully) as Amazon prices on this stuff is fab and all the guys in my family and at work rave about it. I found this on Amazon which made me laugh!!

    Only because I think my hubby likes to think he is one :rofl:

    PS3 + games
    2x Blurays
    Lynx man washer
    Marvel wash set

    I'm stumped! He's the most awkward person to buy for so will be stalking :D

    I have no idea for my hubby. We usually go for little fun bits and pieces.
    There will probably be some clothes
    some smellies
    food stuff (he always asks for toberlone LOL)
    Then anything fun I happen to see on my travels

    I think I'm getting the big blu-ray collectors box set of the Batman films that is out next week. I have absolutely no other ideas yet though.

    We usually make lists for each other, so hubby will give me some ideas. I know he wants the boxset of all the star wars films on bluray, but that's all. Currently he's out of work and I'm on mat leave, so money is tight, so it might just be that and a few bits and bobs. It's his 40th birthday in January and I had the best idea, but it's far too expensive - I want to get a painting commissioned by an artist from Norfolk whose work we saw and loved when on holiday there. If he gets a job soon I might look into getting it done on the credit card!

    I dunno we are giving each other a £50 limit......which is a lot for us at the moment. That includes a present from the kids.
    Think il get him an autobiography, he loves them, will have to see who puts one out this year.
    Maybe a computer game.....depends if any he wants drop in price before christmas.
    A tin of sweets
    Then I'm stumped. :shrug: il find something. If all else fails there's a hoodie he wants, I think it's awful so it's a last resort gift:haha:

    I'm thinking a night away somewhere. There are often good deals on groupon and travelzoo etc.
    The last few years we have often got each other experiences, e.g. Comedy tickets or voucher for a massage, then you have something to look forward to later in the year!
