    Title says it aaaall.
    I'm hoping to score a few sneaky hints at ideas with this for my boyfriend haha.

    ... GO! :]
    I've got him a 'charity gift' - 'plant 40 rainforest trees' - from the RSPB (he loves nature, helping the environment etc), I've also got him a book by David Lynch (one of his favourite directors) about his creative influences, and a speaker shaped like a mushroom, because he loves mushrooms

    I've got him a Hank Green CD and a digital photo keychain. I'm going to buy him some nice jeans or a blazer when we go shopping together after Christmas, too, and bake him Hummingbird Bakery's raspberry cheesecake brownie <3

    Fantastic choice of gifts, it's a good mix! I've not come across many girls who know the right gifts to get for their guys.

    I got my girlfriend a versace handbag which she's been wanting for years, it's such a good feeling being 100% sure your gift will be loved :yep:

    I'm getting him a DVD and an FML book for his stockings, and he's asked for ipod speakers for our anniversary and Christmas.

    I feel sorry for him- anniversary, Christmas and my birthday are all within a week. At least I have 6 months to think up new presents for him.
    I know that he's probably getting me one present for all 3, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it'll sparkle.
    don't get your hopes up.. he is male

    Two DVDs, three DVD season boxsets, two Burton tops and a shirt and tie (more for my perverted benefit than his), a loo roll with thousands of 'things you didn't know' printed on it, an old PS1 game he got excited about remembering his misspent youth, SOCKS (he makes holes in them, so a v. practical present), a glass shot glass chess set and a Pokemon keyring. Gah. I adore him.

    Painted this http://typo711.deviantart.com/#/d35568v

    Also some books which Amazon have not yet delivered! Will buy something in the shops tomorrow hopefully too.
    That's a nice painting! Although, how is it snowing without any visible clouds?

    He's very hard to buy for as he gets everything he wants himself.

    After reading this thread the presents I bought my boyfriend feel so inadequate...
    I've bought him a lambswool sweater, socks and a "Marmite" mug.
    Last year I bought him a £120 Leatherman knife, but I'm broke this year!

    I bought her an iPad, she has wanted one since its launch.

    Just perfect for her, now she won't be having any excuse to whine at me for making her wait in the car when I tell her to get me from work and something unexpected happens and she has to wait

    But she does not know she is getting an iPad as I put it into a box meant for a Tefal frying pan

    But I still need to get her another gift as her birthday is on Boxing Day.

    If he's into guitars if you search around you can get personalised guitar picks
    I did that for my boyfriend a few years ago and he loved it, got a picture of us on them, quite cheap as well for the amount you get
    Problem is theres no way I can ever out do that present now
    I did that too


    I got him a guitar pick, a T-shirt, a book, a candy cane, and some honeycomb. Haha. He's also getting a "long-term loan" of my iPod since for Christmas I'm getting a new one.

    Urgh, nightmare. I have to make him a stocking so I have to get loadsss. I don't mind the money or anything, it's just thinking of good things to get him. So far I'm thinking I'll get-

    Moleskine diary
    Risk board game
    a mousemat/mug with his face on
    a graphic novel (any suggestions welcome)
    some kind of complicated lego thing that you build (again, any suggestions..?)
    silly putty
    some fancy cooking sauces
    Periodic table mug

    then, like, some chocolates, some sweets, a couple of books and a couple of dvds and some nice running socks or something

    ...Seriously, are you going out with someone or grooming a young child?
