    Guys- what kinds of gifts are you asking for this Christmas?

    I have a few men on my gift list that I need to get gifts for and I'm running out of ideas.

    What kinds of gifts do you like getting from relatives or friends that's within the $25-$100 range?

    I know this does nothing to help you but I am hoping to get a new PC and some disney gift cards this year.

    Anyway Home Depot or Lowe's cards are great if the guy is a do-it-himselfer. Does he like NASCAR or have a favorite driver? Get him something for that. Model cars or planes are always great. Movie gift cards are awesome gifts too.

    ^^ Thanks for answering my question BDBopper. I think I like the movie gift card idea. I forgot about that and I love movies.

    Belle keeps saying I'm so hard to buy for.

    I don't think I am at all.

    I know you women think that gift-cards are impersonal and not sentimental enough, but really, for most of us it's just fine.

    My problem is, when I get Gift Cards I hardly (if ever) spend it on myself. Sure I will get a few things for me, but I'll also end up getting stuff for the kids, etc.

    Other than that, there is the new Die Hard movie pack, Monty Python's flying circus complete series (hint-hint) and some other "Dude-Flicks".

    I have made up a "movie bucket" before. Get a big popcorn bowl, a couple of movies with a bunch of treats and microwave popcorn and wrap it all with cellophane. Usually makes a nice gift.

    One year, I got all my brothers and cousins (like brothers) new ski gloves. My in-laws got my hubby a car washing bucket - filled with car wash stuff.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I really hate to resort to the gift card idea since it is family members I am buying for but the Dude Flicks sounds good.

    You are not being dull. Your idea is very thoughtful.


    Love the ideas-keep them coming.

    Are you giving the guy a gift or the guy in a couple a gift? If its the guy in a couple, the movie tickets is a good idea. If you're giving the guy a gift, Best Buy always works for me.

    Even amongst family, a gift card is always appreciated.

    I always fill the hub's stocking with:

    a) His favorite candy bars

    b) His usual body products (face wash, deodorant, shampoo, a new toothbrush ect..)


    Books are always good too. If you go into B&N, you're bound to find something that the guys will like. DOes someone BBQ? Get 'em a BBQ book, or how about one of those cook books from the TV shows? Like an Alton Brown book! Wow.. I might have to look for one of those for the hubs.

    I also like doing magazine subscriptions.. Buy the magazine and take one of the cards and fill it out. Give him a note saying that the subscription is his gift and that way he'll get a gifts all year round!

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    My wife always manages to find me a few trinkets from the bike shop.

    The running gag in my family is that everyone gets underwear and socks.
    Have bicycle, will ride. Finished 2012 with 10,089 miles, 683 hours, and 482,000 feet of elevation gain.
    2013: 201 rides, 8171 miles, 544 hours, 480K feet.
    2014 so far: 5751 miles, 319,000 feet
