Default HUSBAND DILEMMA

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?!

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???

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.

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?

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
