DH hikes a lot, so one year I set up a "treasure hunt" and left clues all around the house leading from one to another, at the end was a new GPS.
He likes survival thingies, so lots of water purifying gadgets, flashlights, hand tools, riding gear, a custom made grill (DH is 6'3 so I had a tall one made)...
How about a mini vacay doing something he loves close by, with a REALLY nice room, include photos of it.
But normally he says the same thing as yours, soooo... ;)

hee hee... I always buy my mans wallets. Other wise he'd have a ripped up mess in his pocket!

I got mine a video game, 2 actually... What about a power washer? Some tools? Look around and see what he doesn't have that he might need but doesn't want to spend the money on...

Does he have a watch? A nice work coat? I was looking at a shoe dryer for my guy but I can't decide.... Seems cheesy a thing to dry his boots on but then again... we women have a gazillion pairs of shoes where men usually have just 2 or three.... Mine has a pair of hiking boots (that he wears everyday) tennis shoes and dress shoes....

I would be thrilled if a woman bought me a wallet! Decent ones are so over priced. I HATE buying them. Im not cheap by any means, just certain things I hate buying. Wallets, belts, and work stuff. Whats he do for work?

It's hard to go wrong giving either tools or guns......

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ask his buddies for ideas.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

A really good pair of gloves or boots. Something warm. A coffee maker for the dairy farm.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

When they say" all they need is you" it's just as bad as having one that really doesn't need anything because if they want It they just go and buy it. Hubby and my father do this, even up until the day before Christmas! There has been a few occasions where they were made to take things back because we had bought it for them for Christmas/birthday

ahh my boyfriend is terrible too !
He loves his guns and hunting, but he has everything he needs ! Even if I wanted to buy him something related to guns I wouldnt know what to get because I don't know enough about them !

He will never tell me what he wants and im terrible and buying presents. To make it even worse, he's great at buying presents and always gets me something perfect ! Ugh
