Sorry to mention the "C" word in November but I wondered if it might be worth having a thread for those tricky to buy for people.

My current challenge is my husband. He likes:

Port - but I just bought him some for his birthday last week

Books especially political - but I bought him Gordon Brown's book last week too

Sudoku - but I've bought him that for every Christmas since we got married I think

Walking - he has maps, waterproofs and a compass

 

Any ideas?

Does he like taking photos? I have a friend who does photography walking lessons!!

Port - another bottle for after he has finished the birthday one...

 

Books - Does he have a Kindle? I love books & my dh bought me one once for Christmas or a birthday, & although I was resistant at first, I do love it now. You can get all sorts of deals on e-books, so I always have something in the queue ready to read.

 

Walking - some sort of GPS device for walking? Walking socks along with a gift card for his favourite gear shop?

 

Sudoku - something like this??? http://www.bitsandpi...doku_game_board

I was given a cool present for my birthday — a beanie hat with a built in torch. In my case for any time I’m in rural as I have no night vision & am blind without street lights, but it would also be good for walking if light levels drop

AMO you are an actual genius! I have never seen such a hat but it's perfect as he likes to walk at night. He says it's peaceful and he can pray more easily then. I've just ordered one.

 

He has a kindle but a GPS tool would be a good idea. He's not a photographer though - sadly as I'd love some home grown photos to put on the wall.
