Who do you find it hardest to shop for?

I find my husband's the hardest to shop for, outside of his parents, which as of this year he's now responsible for.

I could buy him tools, but he says not to. He only wants the best, which means the most expensive, like what Norm Abram uses on his shows. I guess I could always give him gift cards to Home Depot & Lowe's.

I could buy him clothes, but he says not to. He's not expensive in this category, instead it's the total opposite as he buys many a shirt from local thrift stores!

He's into Louis L'Amour books & has quite the collection of paperbacks. I have an Excel list & try to keep it updated by going through the stacks yearly around his birthday in Sept through December, but now that my printer's broken, I can't print out such!

He doesn't want any colognes as he's only fond of Old Spit.

He's into golf, but may have every accessory, as well as boxes of balls & tees.

He used to hunt & fish, but hasn't done so for years. I guess I could inquire about buying him a hunting license, but I think the hunter has to purchase such.

I was going to sign him up for the "Beer of the Month" club, but with Utah's wacky liquor laws, the deliveries would get confiscated & he'd get a warning in the mail, which happened to my coworker!

*SIGH*

Usually my Mom, it's next to impossible. She's not into "girly" type things at all....candles, bath stuff, mani/pedi/spa, clothes. The only she is really into is her horses, and everything she has is custom made and top of the line so that is pretty much out

This year though, my Dad got her a new horse trailer for her birthday that has a sleeping compartment and wardrobe/storage area so we are doing "Pimp my Trailer" for Christmas

I have had so much fun shopping for her! Got her a blender, a mini George Foreman grill, a coffee maker, hot pot/kettle thing, bedding. It's like furnishing a mini apartment!

Her barn/show group are a party bunch, so this will defiantly follow through with Mothers Day.....we're going to get her a canopy, table & chair set and fill a liquor trunk
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

My husband deals with shopping for his family.

I have a hard time shopping for him. He likes comic books and techy stuff (I did buy him a shirt that says GEEK and a onesie for our daughter that says My Daddy is a Geek) and I know nothing about either. Also, if he wants something he just buys it. He could use clothes, but he doesn't exactly get really excited about them so that seems like a crappy gift. Oh, and flannel pj pants with pockets. MUST HAVE POCKETS. The best gift I ever gave him was Tivo and I keep hoping for similar inspiration to strike again one of these years.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
My mom. She just buys everything she wants already, and she doesn't like the girly stuff that an above poster mentioned.

I do my birthday and holiday shopping year-round, though. If I see something I know a person would like, and it's in the right price range, I'll buy it--even if their birthday was only weeks ago.
Glad to see I'm not alone. Hubby has everything. I already got him golf clubs he never uses. A telescope he doesn't use that we're giving to our nephew so it gets used. He's got every tool known to man. Every gadget. The only thing I know he wants is a mini-landmover machine (like a tractor) which is $25K+ so that's out of the question.

I always end up getting stupid clothes. I hate that. Some ideas would be appreciated. He's into snow sports, handyman, builds stuff.

I think any man who is over 30 has to be the hardest person to buy for. By that time they have most of the electronic gadgets they want. Theyt have received most tools they need. You only need one new set of golf clubs every 20 years so once you buy them they are out. Compared to women who always like new jewelry or perfume, there just aren't a lot of little things for a man.

My husband does golf and wants an umbrella for his clubs. I am getting him the flex drizzle stix. Other than that it's going to be a bleak Christmas for him this year. I have considered a micro fiber golf towel too.
