My FH loves gadgets but they have to be useful, not just novelties

He was so excited months ago about an electronic fly swatter one of his friends had..I filed that away in the back of my mind & have just today seen one in a Harris Scarfe catalogue..only about $30 & I'm so rapt to be able to get him one!

He's hopefully forgotten all about it & won't guess what it is before unwrapping it (like he does with most gifts..drives me crazy!)

Will have to think of something else too but there's my initial 2 cents worth!

We're going to be counting pennies until the wedding so I made him a fancy looking IOU booklet of the, um, adult variety. TBH he'll probably prefer to it a video game or something anyways :lol:

As DH has just graduated from Police Academy, he is getting a leatherman (like a swiss army knife) and a kick *** torch.

The best part...they are tax deductible!

Free presents, and I have extra money in July to spend on the baby!

Since I'm not working (and can't get Centrelink) anything I buy DH will be...from him...technically. His b'day was Dec 1 so I didn't get him anything for this reason, and he didn't want me to.

Instead, we'll just have lots of awesome "y'know" LOL We're also heading down to Victoria for Xmas break, so our present to ourselves is petrol.

A new wallet & clothes - since my DH started back at the gym he has lost 10kg, so none of his old shirts really fit him nice & the ones that do, are just too old to wear out for nice!

I am sooo stuck..Last yr I got him a camera and a necklace (which was lost by NYE) and a toy motorbike because he was hellbent on a motorbike..but this yr is hard!

I am doing abit of a boudior shoot so he will get some pics from that, and he has his eye on a watch. I love the kikki.k love books!! You know how you have the feeling to do something personalised but then you dont know what! FH birthday is boxing day too so I need to fill that void too..He has BF3 and doesnt want MW so Im lost..might get him the new Assassins Creed..

I decided against the Xbox games! I normally end up addicted to them and playing it more then him! So opted to buy him a blanket box, he's mentioned ever since I met him that he's wanted one but they're too expensive. Figured it was like giving an empty wallet just giving him the blanket box, so I'm making him a quilt as well....which will hopefully be finished in time! Mad rush this week trying to get it done.
A few little things as well, a metre long Toblerone, a gift pack of hot chilli sauces (he loves hot food) and perfume he's almost run out of. Probably spent way too much on him but I knew my time was almost up with my job and it would be a while before I got to spoil him again.

These sound like great ideas.

I'm getting him star wars themed gifts - a Han Solo ice cube tray, an R2-D2 ice cube tray and some lightsaber chopsticks (he LOVES these). I'd also like to get him some nice tea and a new tea strainer (he's a big tea drinker).

I'd also like to get him some new shirts but it's hard to buy without him there - he's fussy.

I found him so cheapies, yay! So as well as the naughty IOU booklet I made him I got him boggle because we're both addicted to word games and a "ring for sex" bell haha. He'll love it.
