    My fiance is a rough tough truck drivin, gun totin, republican who is an IT guy for a profession. We only have about $50 to spend on each other, and I have NO CLUE what to get him. He is allergic to metals (red head) and doesn't wear any cologne, jewelry, etc. he loves science shows and history shows, but doesn't read at all.....

    HEP!

    Quote:Too bad he doesn't read - Ted Nugent has a book out "Ted, White and Blue" it sounds good [​IMG] in an Uncle Teddly sort of way. Been meaning to get a copy, myself.

    If you can afford it (not sure how much they are) but you can get History Channel and Discovery Channel shows on dvd.

    Maybe get him something for his truck - seatcovers, etc... Don't get the Purple Tinkerbell ones, though [​IMG]

    Hmm, a subscription to a magazine? My hubby doesn't really read books much, but he'll read short articles in magazines and the like.

    If all else fails, buy him a chicken [​IMG], no wait, that would be for you.

    That WOULD be for me - he has bought me 10 babies since we got our first 7...... He just wants to make me happy. and I am so clueless as to what to get him. He told me to get him a carton of cigarettes and a 6 pack of corona. as if.....

    Since he smokes, what about some nice cigars. That's one of the things I am getting DBF.

    Since he smokes, get him an engraved lighter. If he drinks, get him the best, Royal Crown. You could always order him an engraved money clip. It is hard to buy gifts for some people, good luck.

    Quote:JR Cigars has weekly specials, and quite often they are REALLY good specials.

    My husband buys from here. http://www.jrcigars.com/

    Personally
    , I like a nice (little) capuccinno Tatiana every now and then, but he smokes just about any size and shape.

    I don't mind, (he doesn't smoke them in the house) but sometimes he'll light up a dog rocket and about drive me out of the truck [​IMG]

    eta - the Tatianas you can't get at JR, you can google the name and their website will come up - the capuccinno ones are a light cigar, not too harsh (or dog rockety smell [​IMG] ) they come in both regular sized and the little ones (about the size of a cigarette) I have to order them, because I can't find them down here at all - only found them at ONE place where I used to live (specialty cigar store). They cost about 20 bucks for 25 of them - but that is shipped.

    chiknmama - do you have any suggestions for a cigar. I know totally NOTHING about them. I do not smoke- so I have not a clue when someone talks about them. DBF has no idea I am getting them, So I really don't want to ask too many questions to him about them. My brother had some "imported" cubans [​IMG] and I know he just went nuts when he got one. I would love any suggestions. Thanks, Kellee

    I had a Big suggestion, but that could get me in trouble [​IMG]

    50 wont buy a carton of smokes, I do like the JRs cigar sellection, they have assortments, or cigar of month things so he gets some each month, not sure how much, its been years since I looked but what guy doesnt like to get some each month???

    When I ordered mine, you got an assortment for just shipping, then a box a month till you cancelled, just dont forget to cancel [​IMG]
