I'm Still Stumped

Now that the Blu Ray player idea is out the window, I'm right back to being stumped as to what to get hubby for Christmas. So far I've gotten him pj's, and I plan to get him a bathrobe and watch. Other than that I'm stumped. I need a few more ideas that are rather inexpensive. Do you have any ideas for gifts for guys for under $50?

Does he wear cologne? Maybe you could get him some new cologne or aftershave to kind of go with the PJ's and bathrobe. A new wallet? What kind of things is he into?

OMG I'd forgotten about that. The kids dumped his cologne a few weeks ago. Since then he's been using MY body spray, which isn't horrible on him, but still! So yes, I want to get him more of that, but had forgotten. He doesn't need a new wallet. He's not into much really, he works all the dang time. Usually I get him new work pants, but he only likes black, and he already has a pair of black, and 2 pair of gray, how many more black pants does he need? He won't wear the other colors. I suppose I can get him an extra anyways.

What about something cheesy like new floor mats for his truck, an air freshener, and a new window scraper?

The floor mats would get lost in the sea of fast food wrappers and empty soda bottles, lol. Apparently he likes the aroma of that mess too. We just bought new ice scrapers too. He'll be getting a new car shortly after Christmas anyways.

I have no clue, maybe a video game for him and the kids to play together.

Over the summer I bought him 2 X Box games and he only ever played them once. He really just doesn't have the time for video games unless it's something he and I can play together. Besides, we'll be getting a Wii shortly after Christmas once he gets his 401K money, so it's sorta silly to buy him an X Box game, but also silly to buy a Wii game that he can't play yet.

Men are SO hard to buy for. I sympathise! Thankfully my partner and I won't really be buying each other Christmas gifts so I don't have to think about it too hard. I'll probably buy a few stocking fillers like bathroom goods and chocolate, but that's it.

He's never been hard to buy for in the past. He's almost always needed something because we can't afford to get him things whenever he needs them, but this past year has been different. He has gotten everything he needed when he needed it, so now he doesn't need a thing. And so far as his wants go, well he works, he plays on his computer which is barely a year old, and he and I watch movies together or sit up and talk. We don't really buy movies for many reasons. So, really not much I can think of getting him at all. Anything I want to get him is pricey, like a blu ray player, a Wii, a new coat. I'm sure I'll come up with something.

How about a digital pocket sized photo frame for his favorite pictures? Or a fogless shaving mirror, it hangs in the shower. It runs about $30 at Brookstone. Actually thought about that for my hubby. Or you could get him a personalized travel mug. I found this online, looks kinda neat. It's about $15. Here is the link for that one. http://www.thingsremembered.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_10001_10001_577216_-1_1?fcref=giftscom577216&srccode=cii_5217346&cpncode=17-24003885-2

He doesn't even carry pics in his wallet as it is, he doesn't shave in the shower, and he drinks bottled soda, doesn't use a travel mug. All good ideas, just not for my hubby :(

Im not the best when it comes to gifts, but is there any cds that he would enjoy?, they always make a good gift, or if youre really stuck you could give him a £50 voucher. Thats all i can think of sorry Good luck
