    Help! Really stuck for ideas for DH birthday

    From me and the boys.

    This is the first year ever I have been truly stumped and I have a week to find something.

    He is 36 this year. Likes football, telly, reading, wine, food and probably many more things I can't think of at the moment.

    Any ideas for something a bit different? We've not got a massive budget.

    How about a delivery from a food store? Somewhere like Pong or The Spicery, both of which have been recommended on here. You could get a monthly one delivered if funds run to that.

    Not sure about your budget, but how about an experience day? If he likes cars, day to drive a Ferrari or something?

    I got OH a soft-shell jacket from Trespass. They are just the best jackets for sporty stuff as they keep you at a comfortable temperature and are water/wind proof.

    I was going to get a Spotify subscription but needed his phone to do it.

    The kids got him a rucksack.

    My dad said that last year so I wrapped up an empty box - he was delighted!

    Same here! DH is 36 on Sat and I really struggled this year. In the end I got him a subscription to a bike magazine he reads. And I'll get him some chocs or something from the boys. He's so hard to buy for.

    Glad it's not just me that finds this really hard! I am going to have to go shopping on Friday afternoon and still really stuck! I might just buy him lots of small things that he likes.

    I'm stuck for my father in law too. He likes beer, watching football at the working mens club and betting on horses. I don't really want to encourage any of those activities but can't think of a present.

    No I bought it from JJB, they will also do the printing if you want his name on the back. Martin was well chuffed with his and actually I thought the new shirts were quite nice.

    Thanks. Might try and make a dash there before Saturday. My DH would like that too.
