I apologise in advance if this has already been done although my search function is not working and im getting a tad frustrated with it at the moment so im posting a new topic for this.

So, What are you buying or have bought for your DH or DP for Christmas?

I was thinking a $300 bunnings gift card seeing as my DH spends too much time there and we are looking at selling our current place and buying a house next year so i figured the gift card could be used for tools etc for renovations although i feel like im giving him a gift which will just lead to him working more around the house so not really a gift if you know what i mean.

AND Christmas is on Tuesday and ive really left this way too late to now change what i am going to get him...

gift ideas please.

A new toilet bag filled with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, flannel, aftershave, nail clippers, nail file, nail brush, soap and container, deodorant. He works away so will get alot of use. His old one was getting a bit manky.

A lotto pack.

Hairclippers.

2 x books.

Still need to get some chocolate beer and some t shirts. We only buy small gifts for each other, nothing very exciting.

DH wanted a wheel barrow this year, so that's what he's getting. But, I'm also chucking in a couple of itunes cards and a time card for WoW as something extra that he wont know about until Xmas day.

Nothing, DH has everything he needs or wants. I told him he needs to have something to open on the day so he said a new iPad mini cover as his broke. He better hurry up and buy it so I can wrap it.

I hate Christmas.

About 12 graphic novels - entailed extensive research and sneakiness to avoid doubling up
A dressy watch

From DS:
Hankies
Jocks
Avengers boxers
Socks

I bought DH a book....which he found and has already started reading. We dont usually get each other anything but I want to start making an effort for DS (although I haven't gotten him anything yet either). DH got me a gold necklace and a Shaballa bracelet which I am already wearing. We're hopeless.
