Christmas presents for the peeps that already have it all!

So, the hubby doesn’t really need anything for Christmas. I’ve swamped him with so many presents over the last 6 years for this birthday and Christmas that we can’t fit one more damn thing in the house. He did come up with one thing he needs–a new table saw. So, that’s definitely on the list. But I like to bury him up to his eyeballs in gifts and was running out of ideas. Then I saw a Groupon that would totally be fun.

Grant and I went horseback riding on our honeymoon (I was terrified and riding a limping horse for fuck’s sake!), but haven’t been back since. I figured this would bring back wonderful memories and be a great time in the 75 degree weather of an Arizona winter.

So if you have one of those pesky damn people in your life that already has everything they need and want, so buying presents is a pain in the ass because you have no clue what to get, might I suggest fun stuff to do instead of a material gift? I’ve started taking Mom on vacations each year for her main Christmas present (plus a bunch of other little things too) and now I’m going to start doing that for the hubby. It may sound totally sappy (okay, it IS totally sappy) but those awesome memories are better than something in a box any day.

Of course, since I like to have him unwrap a zillion presents, I made this for him and printed it as an 8×10, and then stuffed it into a box so that he has a gift to unwrap that tells him about his gift. Yeah, I’m a doofus! πŸ™‚

    • Kewl and sappy sounds just about right! πŸ˜‰ I hope he loves it–I think he will. We had such a blast last time. Yeah, I too want a slow and gentle horse. One that wouldn’t gallop if you bribed him! πŸ™‚ HUGS!!

    • I’m like you…I LOVE to give gifts (but have to admit I don’t mind getting them either!). πŸ™‚ I’m getting to that age where I don’t need many “things.” Yeah, I need a new cutting board for the kitchen, but mostly I like to do stuff instead of get stuff. Like this year my mom and I are flying out for an early Christmas with my sister. I’m taking my sis on a shopping spree (can’t exactly fly all her presents out to her–it would cost a fortune). Half the fun will be the experience of the shopping spree–the presents will just be a nice reminder of it. πŸ™‚

    • That is awesome! Terrifying, but awesome! I hope he has an amazing time. Good on your sister. πŸ™‚ A couple of years ago I got the hubby 10 laps in a NASCAR race car. I was scared shitless, but he had a blast driving that thing at a million miles an hour. Total rush. We even got a plaque with pics and stuff that hangs in the family room. So much better than a few extra sweaters to clutter up the closet (not that he won’t be getting some this Christmas–the man blows through clothes faster than anything I’ve ever seen!). πŸ™‚

      • Dad really enjoyed it. It was either last year or the year before. Either way he was past 70. I’ll be happy with just a hug from my kids on Christmas Day, but I know I won’t get it. They are at their mothers for the day.

      • Good for him! That takes some serious courage! πŸ™‚ Glad he had fun.

        As for you…sorry the kids will be with their mom and not you. That blows donkey balls. I’m sure they’d rather be with their bad ass Daddy! πŸ™‚ Now, while there’s not a cell in me that’s greedy, even I want more than a hug on Christmas! (Wow, that sounds bad when I read it back!) πŸ˜‰

      • πŸ™‚ The kids have been with me every year for the past four years. They would rather be with me, they have said that, but it is not fair on their mother.

        I know their mother will give them barely anything in the way of pocket money, so a hug is something I can expect which is why I will be happy with it
