Well, Jay convinced me on the GPS for the car. So I'd definitely look into that for any guy.

Also, satellite radio in just about any form.

For men who aren't into gadgets, I'd suggest:
Sports tickets
A scent his woman really likes on him
His own box of See's that nobody else can touch
Books about his favorite stuff

Who are we kidding? Every guy likes gadgets -- electronic weather stations, satellite phones, stud finders, portable hard drives, a broadband card for his laptop (only $60/month!), etc.

My husband and I both are into gadgets! We like all that it neat and cool. If it's something that my mom or his dad will be amazed at then we have to get it. We have stuff we don't even use just because we thought it was a cool gadget at the time! Silly!

My hubby is into gun stuff, knives, tools, coins, and some techy gadgets. It would seem he would be easy to buy for except everything he wants is really expensive. I have been able to get him some smaller things, though. Last year I got him the Band of Brothers DVD set. He loves it. If you haven't seen it, it's a great series. He travels a bit for work so I also got him a toothbrush holder that has ultraviolet light to kill germs. He uses that even at home. Heck, now I want to get one. I'm keeping my ears open to find out what other small things he wants (I know there's a couple of knives) and I'm pushing him to give me a list or circle things in his catalogs.

My wife got me a Sirius radio a few years ago... great gift.
I plan on buying one for my 17 year old son this year.

Speaking as one with similar interests, ammo is always a nice stocking stuffer, and I just recently received a Kershaw Whirlwind as a gift. Retails for about $60 but can be had on eBay for $40ish... I LOVE this knife. It's a solid piece with modest style, but the coolest part about it is that it's spring assisted. It looks and works just like any other liner lock, but if you just nudge the thumb stud a fraction of an inch the blade snaps open with authority.

My boyfriend would really like a Smoker (like a BBQ Smoker) but not the upright kind. He wants the barrel kind with the hot box thing on the side. He loves anything for the grill and uses it throughout the year.

He would also like an electric shaver.

I'm thinking of getting him a full face helmet for his motorcycle so we can both ride in the dead of winter.

All of these gifts are expensive though, so it's going to be one of the three.

Well, that or we're going to buy ourselves a surround sound system. We haven't decided.

I've been keeping an ear out for the things dh mentions or things he's been interested in when we're shopping. I know that he wants a tool chest, he'd love one of those huge chests on wheels, but I don't think that will happen this year. A welder, and pressure washer and a weight bench are also on his list. Some of the smaller things he's mentioned are a new nozzle for the garden hose, a trouble light that plugs into the lighter, big spot lights that he can set up when he's working on his truck, a square and a jigsaw. There are also some clothing items that he needs, so I'm working on those too.

I got one of those weather stations for my last birthday. It says right now that it is snowing where I am but if I look out the window it is pouring down clearly, no snow to be seen anywhere! maybe it is a sign for a white christmas Please let it be a sign
