OK, so I have NO clue as to what to get my husband for Christmas. I go through this every year.

He lives in workout clothes (Nike 99% but they wear Addidas at his work).
For normal/dress clothes he has a closet full of Banana Republic (FULL—even his socks and underwear).

He is a coach/trainer for all ages/levels of athletes at the Frappier Acceleration here in town. He long jumps for USATF.

Basically, the man buys whatever he wants. I am not going to complain about having a good looking, in-shape, well-dressed man but come on what do I buy this guy?! :p

So..the obvious places to look for gifts: I went to USATF website and looked at the gear they are selling. He already has it all.
Nike/addidas gear (workout clothes)---closet is already over-flowing….workout shoes….too many to count.

He already has a muscle stick, little hurdles, measuring tape, bosu ball, etc.

Does not hunt/fish/etc. LIVES track and field.

OK, he just sent me a picture text of the presents he just wrapped and put under our Christmas tree!

CRAP I BETTER HURRY UP! HELP!

Maybe I should just wrap a ribbon around myself and lay under the tree???

:confused:

LOL...the last one sounds good...I'm sure he'd like that!

What about gadgets? Does he like those? GPS system, IPOD, PDAs, Video Cameras, stuff like that.

NO he has a shuffle and that's it.

NON-technical kind of guy...

But he's sure pretty! LOL :D

I have your dilemma as well. My husband has EVERYTHING! I got him a Dick's Sporting Goods gift certificate so he can just go buy whatever he feels like. I'm sure he would like you under my tree with a bow too...I mean me with a bow under the tree LOL!

Does he like to cook? Some new kitchen gadget? Or a gift certificate to Home Depot or Lowes? New BBQ Grill? New tool he may need? Books he likes to read? New DVD's he may like? My husband wanted a new cereal bowl-LOL, so I went to a pottery store and made him one....How about a nice handmade item like that?

What about tickets to something...an experience.... I have gotten guys to go rockclimbing in AZ, snowboarding, hanggliding, paintball...?

Naked stuff is always good for a guy. Don't underestimate it. ha!

I'm a guy who buys myself everything I need also but I like the experience idea. Other experiences I would appreciate would be skydiving, bungie jumping, machine gun shooting range, good rock concert, fishing trip, 4 wheeling, travel, gift certs for a nice restaurant, etc.

Being of the same gender of your husband, I would suggest either
buying him a nice pair of black dress shoes(they last forever if you
buy good ones and take care of them) or nice casual clothes that
are an upgrade over t-shirts, sweats or golf shirts. Basically, you are
looking for shirts with more than 3 buttons.

I agree with Isaac....make a photo shoot book or maybe a calendar!

I would tell you something else that I did but my honey reads the board so I can't. Maybe pm me

I was told they were $200......what a price jump.
