I need some help with Christmas ideas

Last year for Christmas I bought my husband a big freaking TV, for our bedroom. I always said I wouldn't put one in there but he wanted it bad enough I got it for him. Wall mounts, had cable hooked up before Christmas Day, had every wire and cable and box he needed, only thing he had to do was find his TV. I wrapped the key to my friends house where the TV was being stored so he wouldn't find it. It was awesome. He was so excited and loved his present. Still loves his present. I'm still not horribly find of it, but that's why it's for him not me. 

I'm at a loss this year, I have gone over and over things to get him. I can't figure out anything. I've thought about season tickets to his favorite team, felt that one out and he wouldn't use them. I thought about a radio for his car, he likes the quiet. Everything I've come up with either he won't use or won't like. I need help, any ideas. What are you doing for your SO?

My dh is sitting next to me so...

Maybe your dh would like a new blu ray player, or ipod, maybe new golf clubs, a new digital video camera, ??

I am getting my husband a new big tool box. He is going to love it as the one he has now is falling apart and he uses it all the time

Thank you, I don't know much about blue ray players. He got one last year with his TV, have they changed enough in a year that a new one would be better? 

His damn brother has bought him two iPods, my children claim them cause my DH doesn't care about them. 

I wish he golfed because I would totally do golf clubs this year. His only hobby is soccer, my kids are getting him a team jersey and a new set of goals. And we have about 50 balls of various sizes around the house and in the car. (This is one of my.... (Sarcasm) favorite things)

I bought him a video camera about 3years ago. I'm a photographer and always have my camera with me, he never used the video camera once :( I thought since I took still pictures he would enjoy a video camera... I was wrong. 

To make matters worse he's not one of those people who give you helpful ideas about presents. No hint dropping, no clues left behind anywhere. I just get to figure it out each year. Yea me.

I love that idea. I love it so much, it's what my dad is buying me for Christmas. LLolita don't have a typical husband. I bet yours will love his gift though if he uses it all the time.

I know we just ended one season, I wanted to get him season tickets for the next season, but when I brought up needing his help finding good seats, it was a huge fit of how they would never get used. Maybe I can just find a couple games though vs season tickets.

thanks.

Try eBay.
I always get good seats for baseball games from people who get seasons tickets, but can't make it to all games.

Nope no need to get him a blu ray player. Maybe new movies or video games. My dh said a "track day" Idk if they have it in American, but you go to a race track and get the keys to a fast car and you do laps. This is obviously a guy thing.

That's a fantastic idea I think they do that out in the dessert west of where we live. Thanks

I hadn't thought of eBay. That's a great place to look. Thanks.
