My fiance is soooooo hard to buy for,He is so pickey and when I ask him what he wants he says "I dont need any Chistmas presents" UGH!!! And then to make it worse he puts 4 presents under the tree for me and says he is not done shopping for me, and should we buy some more presents for the kids.They are not even his kids!

And to top it all off (you may have read my other post) I thought it would be sweet to get him a Butter rum Lifesavers sweet storybook, just like the ones he used to get as a child.Has to be the butter rum Lifesavers, and guess what, they are no where to be found in Minnesota.I need some help here, i'm really bummed!simple frown

well my dh is obsessed with Bill O'Reilly so I got him an autographed copy of his new book, and then I got him a new pillow, cuz he complains about the one he has now...the new one is super nice...and spendy--not your run of the mill pillow! haha! and then a couple shirts! thats about it! he already told me I'm not getting anything.....we'll see if that holds true.

We usually don't get each much, cause we usually go shopping when we get our income tax check...BUT I am getting him this tool from Sears, its an all in one screw driver set...Its a screw driver with built in pices, I think it comes with like 25 things in it...So when he is looking for the screwdrivers, he can just pull this one out and its all in one...he doesnt have to look for the small pieces its very nifty and its under $30

try some online stores for the butter rum lifesavers...I dont know my husband says the same thing "i dont need anything" so I let my 7.5 year old pick out a few presents for him. Hes really into the Oakland Raiders so she got him 2 of those fold up camping chair things that are raiders, raiders sunglasses, and a raider lanyard (he wears a badge to work everyday so she got him that to hang his badge from), she also got him this screwdriver thing that she said she saw him looking at when they went shopping together. So he got that from them and I got him the new guitar hero game for the ps3. But nothing will beat what he gave me he went shopping the other night and was gone for hours we live in a small town with a walmart theres no where to be gone for hours. But he came home threw my present at me and said open it. I did I can never wait til christmas. It was a digital photo frame and he was at a friends house loading pics that he had been taking for weeks onto it. So sweet..

Well, my husband is a total "gadget geek" so since he bought the whole Plasma TV with surround sound package over teh summer when we bought our new house, I bought him the BLU-Ray DVD player for christmas and a couple DVD's for his stocking.

But what does your fiance like?  Tell us al ittle bit about him and maybe we can figure out some stuff he might like  :o)

he loves 80's rock, alot of bands I never heard of. Loves boxes of baseball cards, autographed, but what ones to get? He looks at the $400 boxes..lol.And he likes everything that is a million dollars..lol. Thats all I know. He hates getting cologn,clothes,food,gift cards....pretty much all of the normal guy gifts.I thought about getting him an electric shaver, but i dont know what is good.

My hubby's hard to buy for - at least things we can afford right now! He wants a lift kit for his truck, a new winch, new tires for his 4wheeler . . . last year I got him a new rifle, when we could actully afford something. Now I think I'm just going to have to get him a new screwdriver set he's been wanting. I can never buy for anyone, lol! I'm the worst gift-giver.
