What to get your man for Christmas when he doesn’t want anything…
Every year my husband does this to me…
Me: Joey, what do you want for Christmas this year?
Hubs: I don’t want anything.
Hubs: I already have everything I need.
What kind of wife would I be if I didn’t get him anything for Christmas? I at least want him to open something! It doesn’t have to be the most extravagant gift, but I just want him to know I love and appreciate him.
What I got hubs
I could easily go crazy for Christmas but this time around I tried to contain myself. With a baby on the way we have done our best to be very conscious of our spending…just trying to be grown ups here.
I’m pretty impressed with myself because I was able to get all of these items for about $166!!
1. Arnold Family Calendar
I love this gift!!! I know he will hang it proudly in his office. I included important dates like our Baby’s due date, our anniversary, Mother’s Day and my birthday!
$20 from Vista Print
2. Raiders shirt
His other Raiders shirt has half a shield from wearing/washing it so much. I had to take the opportunity to get him a new one, especially since they are kicking ass this season!!
$30 for shirt
3. Frozen stickers (stocking stuffer)
This is an inside joke between us, but basically Olaf is his favorite. You have to throw a funny gift in there, it can’t be all about business! I know it will make him laugh.
$2 for 2 sheets of stickers
4. Baby’s First Year
This gift was more for me, so I realized I should give it to the both of us. On the tag I said it’s for Mommy & Daddy from Santa.
$36 from Anthropology
5. C ornament (stocking stuffer)
This gift was also made out to the both of us from Santa. Had to get a C ornament for our daughter Cruz! It’s a silly gift but I know he will love it and always remember it from the Christmas I was pregnant with her.
$8 from Anthropology
6. Braun Electric Shaver
He was in desperate need of a new one. The one he currently has is from Ross and doesn’t do half the things this one does. He is set for life!!
This was one of those gifts where it’s not a super fun one but I know he will REALLY use it. I tried to be practical with his gifts.
$70 from Art of Shaving
7. A baby
I think this should be added to this list!!!!!
Past gifts for Hubs
In the past I have surprised him with tickets to Raider/Warrior games, sports jerseys, shoes, homemade tamales…you know man stuff.
I usually make a pinterest board a month before Christmas and gather ideas or whenever we go to the mall/he mentions something he wants I write it down in my phone. This year he really made it difficult because he didn’t really mention anything he wanted so I was forced to asked, which didn’t help at all. Nonetheless, I think I nailed it this year!
