What do you think about this for a Christmas present???

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok- well, it's official- Colin is the most horrible person ever to shop for, so i'm a bit stuck as to what to get him for Christmas. I went to www.gifts.com and this was one of their recommendations- i actually think it's a nice idea- and it would definitely get used. What do you think???? Have any of you used this product or a similar one before??? I don't have a lot of $$$ this year to spend on presents, but I do want to get him something he will like and be able to use. What do you think?

Shawn is gonna LOVE band of brothers / you think Colin will like it? any other recommendations??? i'm all out of ideas and currently carousing www.gifts.com to try and come up with anything else but it's hard to do.

he hates sports
he's not into cologne or anything like that
he's not big on clothes
he owns just about every single tool/gadget out there
he doesn't need anything for his house that i can think of
and he won't tell me what he wants men!

geesh, i'm not hard to shop for- lol...we all know what I want for Christmas ....my luck though i'll wind up with a phone charger for my car or something like that

I figured the chair massage thing would be an ok idea since he's always sitting in his computer chair when he plays his computer games- it seems like that would be something he'd enjoy using while he is online?

I really think he'll like it.Like you said, he sits in his chair alot to play games.So, this would help relax his muscles while playing.
For Shawn, I get him games,DVDs,guns,tools,and clothes.
Shawn won't tell me what he wants either.So, I get him what I *think* he'll like and if he don't then he can let me return it and we can pick something else up for him.
Another big thing for Shawn is pocket knifes!!!

I think he would like it. I showed it to John and he gave it a thumbs up. LOL So Im guessing he thinks its a good gift too. Or else he just wants me to leave him alone while he plays his video game.

that's funny. Tell John thanks for looking at it- i definitely needed a guys opinion . / I'm glad you think he'll like it- i hope he does, i'm gonna look around online a few more minutes before I order one- i'm trying to shop for a good price.

Ok, so far, this is what i've picked out:

The chair massager thing I posted earlier,

this "far side" wall calender- it's really cute!
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance

This led light for him to put in his squad car (he's really big on flashlights, lasors, stuff like that so i'm thinking he'll like this- it'll make a good stocking stuffer)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance

and I REALLLLLLLLLLY wanted to get this, but they're out of stock It reminded me of "Office Space"- so there' goes my super idea on that one- i'll have to find something else instead.

hmm the chair thing looks cool.
if remember right you said he was playing generals? if he does not have it, look for a game called Dawn of war. the first 2 can be gotten in a value pack now for 20-30 dollars, he may like that

Oh goodness- he has that one too- i swear he has just about everything that's why it's sooooooo hard to shop for him! I'm more simple to shop for than him I like candles, diamonds- hehe, especially diamond rings, victorias secret, and bath stuff...lol..

i am sure that will come in time. hehe dont do a itta on him, and find it before he can give it to you. She found the ring i was going to give her a couple of days before i planned it ,

hmm here is a idea, order some super sexy stuff from VS, put his name on it, that should be a fun gift for him to open. of course his gift is when you wear it. Just a idea

lol...i think i own just about everything from that store so that won't work. he'll just say i bought it for me . / So far i'm getting him the chair massager, the led light, the calender- hehe that one's funny!, and i have $3 left for a stocking stuffer to get him (When I got my cell phone back in July, Cingular gave me a $50 gift card as a rebate- so that's what i'm using for this one) / lol, she found the ring? That's funny- did she act like she didn't find it or did she tell you??

Well, here's what I wound up ordering him:

"far side" calender
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/074...672592-6986444

full back chair cushion massager
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...672592-6986444

A hand clamp ( he loves these things for the wood work he does when he builds stuff)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...672592-6986444

Led light - it'll make a good stocking stuffer and he can use it in his squad car
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...672592-6986444


I will probably get him something else when I get some extra money- but for now, i'm glad I was at least able to get that on the gift card / What do ya'll think? Do you think he'll like it ok? He's soooo hard to shop for!

My boyfriend makes it easy he usually hints at what he would like, and I do the same for him. That way everyone's happy. As for the massage chair thingy, those are nice. I would say go for it!
