    For my OH - Bottle of nice whiskey, a funny animal Xmas t-shirt, possibly some toiletries; the best gift I can give him is being with me. 

    For the males his side of the family - craft beer, it's nice going around different places to find unusual ones.

    For my brother - I send money.

    It's all down to knowing the person and it being the thought that counts.

    "the best gift I can give him is being with me" - I absolutely like :D

    how my husband has it all, so I would like more ideas from the outside.
    some kind of fanatical hobby, there is no difficulty in this, how to surprise



  • I will be keeping an eye on this thread for ideas because I struggle so much with what to get the men in our family, it would be nice to get something a little different to the same stuff as every year but I am struggling with ideas this year

    I've suggested this before. It keeps razors ahrp and reduces having to buy blades as often. 
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/RazorPit-Original-Sharpener-Travel-Sharpens/dp/B004W2UMDW

    Another idea, which makes things easierr to break down. My teenage daughter did this for her boyfriend. You buy a present for each sense, hearing, sight, smell, taste and touch.
    so hearing could be something music related
    sight - a book
    taste - food gift
    touch - clothing
    smell - aftershave. .

    I have found it very difficult to buy for my husband.  He’s 72 and doesn’t drink.

    we don’t buy a lot of gifts but do buy advent calendars.  He gets me a beauty calendar and I buy a different one for myself.  This year I have bought him a cheese one which has to be kept in the fridge and a Hotel Chocolat one.  

    There are quite a few aimed at men.  They are usually things like alcohol or coffee.  

    He said earlier in the year he was going to buy one of those Australian leather hats.  He didn’t so I have bought him one as a surprise.  Just hope it’s not too big/small.  :)

    I should probably have said, but my OH doesn't like receiving gifts. I tend to get him more funny stuff that doesn't take up space and we eat very well over that holiday.

    For his birthday I commissioned a painting of my cat, they bonded within seconds of meeting. Last Christmas I got him a sarcastic cat Christmas t-shirt. 

    For us it's about the quality time and watching classic films, with token gifts. Being together is the best gift we can give each other.

    With feelings interestingly invented for me. my man already has a razor stand.

    By the way, somehow I was thinking about a phone holder with automatic clamping and charging while waiting for the car - I think it's convenient. Maybe someone needs an idea
    something like below

    I also hope that this cute gift will suit him

    it is so touching and romantic! )
    and it is customary for us to give weighty gifts, or rather, my husband's and I have to keep up. every time I don't know how to surprise.

    Dear ladies :) , maybe a gift for the home would suit someone? some piece of furniture that he wanted for a long time or both of you? or spotted in some magazine, so to speak, make a gift for two
