Last year I took a new tack, I went VERY practical. I went to Bunnings, grabbed a basket and walked down the aisles filling the basket with little tools and handy items for the truck and workshop. I wrapped up these parcels and put them in a Santa sack with some VERY practical socks and undies. It was a success, the only time I heard 'You shouldn't have bought these, I already have a pair' was on the new Levi Jeans I bought him, and I bought them because they looked good on him and his other jeans are old and way too short on his long legs.
This year I'm thinking I'll take the same path, I've already purchased a couple of small items, including Ear Muffs for the lawn mower (really they're for me), a magnetic tool holder thingy and my plan is to get him a camping chair to keep in his truck for long waits at the silos! I'd love to be able to guarantee him a day off, and if we FINALLY finish harvest and make it to Sydney for Christmas he may even get a few days off, some time on the boat and maybe even some fireworks like we did a few years ago!

What do you buy your Hubby's?
Are your Hubby's as practical and money minded as my Muddy Hubby?
