He's your husband so you should know better than anyone!

Something golf related? Books on topics he is interested in or bt preferred authors? A really good bottle of a favourite tipple?

I've bought Mr M some pork related items (stop sniggering at the back) in the past which he appreciated, such as cleverly designed t-shirts and a cool poster that I had framed. We know Atilla likes pork.

I'd suggest it's not about the amount of money spent, but getting him something he'll really like.

He has a kindle so books are a no no, he says they are a waste of money. As for a bottle of something nice I forgot to do that before Barracuda shut so too late for that one. Was thinking golf stuff, might pop over to Emirates GC and see what I can see. I even asked him and he couldn't think of anything!

As for clothes I went to MOE yesterday and couldn't find anything that he hasn't already got, a bit buying for the sake of buying. I am not thinking LÓccitane as it is his favourite toiletry.

Things that most men appreciate but are shit at shopping for on their own:-

Decent clothes - maybe take him to get a tailored shirt/suit
Decent Man smell
Pants and socks, although dull, are in my experience always appreciated.

Or how about an 'experience' - Tandem Skydive over the Marina? Or a trackday in an Aston Martin at Yas?

Never buy a man an electronic gadget without prior consultation. A bit like buying a woman an item of clothing without prior consultation. The response will be 'It's lovely - have you kept the receipt?

MMI and A+E are open in the evenings.

Take a look here http://www.cafepress.co.uk/+pork+gifts Have a scroll through as some of the t-shirts are rather good (for which read subtle) and you can choose the colour.

A bacon printed shower curtain. Perfect for Ramadan! http://www.cafepress.co.uk/+bacon_sh...tain,604100173

Or for you? http://www.cafepress.co.uk/mf/329565...black_tank-top



Daft, but making me laugh and crave a bacon sarnie.

Agreed on the gadgets!

You could always buy something for yourself that your husband will enjoy as well.
