Birthday Gift Ideas?

The husband's birthday is next Tuesday.  He's pretty amazing and so good to me, so I'd like to do something really nice for him.  The problem is I have no idea what to do and I'm running out of time! Usually I make him a basket/bag of things he likes (i.e. beef jerky, his favorite candy, rum).  But this time around it seems so lame.  Does anyone have any suggestions? I would appreciate all the help I can get. Right now, my only idea is a nice citronella candle for sitting outside on the balcony.

I empathize! I've been with my husband for 11 years and now each year gets harder & harder to figure out gifts. Maybe you could do a magazine subscription and some other little things, like tickets to a game or a guy-friendly movie that he might want to see. What are some of the things he's into? That would help!

Guys are so hard to buy for! I like your idea of compiling his favorite things into a basket! My hubby is a big golfer so he loves anything to do with it, does your husband have a favorite hobby he would enjoy a gift from?!

What about tickets to go somewhere? Does he like a band or a show?

I have seen on pinterest boquets. Like a boquet of mini booze bottles in a pot. Or a beer cake (similar to a diaper cake for a baby shower) both I think are cute ideas for me.

cut up 52 slips of different colored paper. on each one, write something different you love about him. put in a cute vase/jar...ok, MANLY jar. he gets to open one every week.

I agree with Jax. Tickets to an event or sports game maybe? I think guys like doing things for their birthday rather than just getting stuff.

We are easily find out our best friend in their activities. But some times we can wrongly consider always with us only best friend. this is very wrong. Because best friends always thinking one or two times about us per day in near or far. If our best friend near to us means we can wish him and celebrate his birthday. suppose he/she is far we can celebrate his/her birthday through giftstoindia.co/. So we can send a gift to our best friend via online gifts portal.

You can put some beauty stuff in that basket of gifts like shaving kit or some body spry.
