Why is it so hard to pick out a Christmas gift for my husband? Why are guys just hard to buy for in general? Why am I already stressing out over Christmas gifts in August?
My goal this year is to gather my gifts along the way and avoid "Christmas Panic" (defined as fewer a situation in which there are fewer than 7 days left until Christmas and you have fewer than half your gifts purchased). I'm already well on my way with several gifts checked off the list already.
Back to my husband. He's outdoorsy, professional, and loves movies. He also loves entertaining, so my first thought was a new grill, like these Napoleon grills. He really likes to grill, see?
So that's an option, definitely. Adding to the gift-decision stress is the fact that I have never bought him a Christmas gift as his wife. Last year was our first Christmas, and we had only been married six months and had already moved twice, so we agreed that for the sake of our finances, we'd skip giving each other gifts.
So the pressure is on! I technically have two Christmases to make up for. In that case, I guess that means I should go with the Napoleon gourmet grills instead!
Other options to consider:
Mountain Hardware. He loves that stuff. I think he fancies himself to be rugged. How adorable!
Seeing as how grilling and clothes (yes, you heard me) really are two of his favorite things, maybe I could go with both. Maybe more budget-friendly options, like this Weber portable gas grill and a jacket from Old Navy.
You heard it here first....no Christmas Panic for me this year!
