Buying presents for the awkward hubbie

My hubbie is difficult to buy for, he makes out to everyone he is hard done by when it comes to those special occasions, birthday, Christmas and Father’s day.  But in reality he always fails to give me any clues as to what he would like to have.  Well I guess he does drop one giant clue but that is something so far out of budget, I would have to combine all the special occasions for the next 10 years to be able to afford it!  So that is one I choose to ignore…

He is a lot like my dad in one way, he would never let us know what he wanted and for years he made do with Liquorice Allsorts.  I want to save my hubbie from years of Toblerone bars, my go to present of last resort!  I know he loves eating them (as do I!), but I do wish I had lots more to choose from.  This year I added some beer and a couple of DVD’s to my Toblerone formula!  He did seem marginally more pleased, but I know I have not got it right yet, I want something more original if not a little kooky!

My hubbie is a fan of a Zombie series so I have seen a Zombie Gnome that looks like a funny novelty from http://www.thumbsupuk.com, although I do think it might scare off our poor resident gnome and possibly the boys!  So unfortunately I might have to hold off from buying that for now, I do not want them running away in terror!  

However I think hubbie would love it, so in the meantime as It’s quite stressful being a dad to two feral boys, I think he would enjoy the bubble-wrap pop case.  He can click in the bubbles again and again to lighten his mood!!!
