  • My dh is pretty easy to buy for...but my dad is a different story....he HAS everything and the things he usually wants are tools....and I have no idea how and what to buy in that section of the store....lol.

    We go pretty simple these days...since its about the kids having fun anyways...He usually just gets a T shirt and his favorite Whoppers candy from us...lol.

  • Not really. The only man I buy for is my husband and he is pretty easy.

  • If your dad wants tools and you don't know what he still needs or should have replaced, give him a gift card. Then he can pick out the exact tool and manufacturer that he wants. Plus the sales clerk will know immediately that he can't con him into buying a more expensive one.

  • Good Lord yes. My husband is impossible. He really doesn't have any hobbies, not a movie watcher and only wears black t-shirts and blue jeans. What do you get for the man that needs nothing?!?!?!

  • I'm sure other's will suggest this, but go with gift cards.

    but I know what you mean, I literally can get my husband the exact same shirt he already has, same color, same label, to replace the one that he wears so much he's worn out.

    he'll tell me he doesn't like it.

  • Not so far. Hubs is getting a magnetic bracelet. he has been asking for a long time. My boys just want electronics (teens) and my Dad and Brother are getting homemade sugared almonds (they make way more $$ the me and Hubs)
