Struggling

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question
  • I made mine a photo book of our baby for father’s day and he cried looking through it.
    Otherwise, he loves fishing so a BCF voucher always makes him happy!


  • A neck massager as my hubbie gets lots of knots around his shoulders and neck.
    A good quality dressing gown.
    Eternity perfume for men.
    Good quality leather shoes. I copied his shoe outline onto paper and took this with me to ensure the correct fit.


  • My husband loves the weather (???) so each year I get him the beautiful calendar from the Bureau of Meteorology.
    This year we finished watching Breaking Bad together so I bought him a ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ Tshirt and the first season of the spinoff show ‘Better Call Saul’.
    What about tickets to see a band he likes?


  • Well.. my husband likes when I get something for me which benefits him *wink wink nudge nudge*


  • Always ends up with a Bunnings voucher ????‍♀️ haha


  • A couple of years ago I gave him a dash cam for the car and he loved it. Another time a Nespresso coffee machine.


  • Why are hubby’s always the hardest to buy for? Maybe because they never seem to ‘want’ anything or just buy it themselves! I usually get him a good shirt or tickets for a concert!


  • I always struggle because it seems I give him the same type of presents year in year out.
    I often give him clothing (shirts, t shirts, trousers shorts, socks, underwear), body care products (body wash, body spray, perfume, eau the toilette, deo, shaving foam, shaving knifes), alcohol (nice wine, bubble or whisky), garden tools to ease the pain of gardening for him ;)
    Last year I gave him a knee tray to eat his dinner by the tv, a good size safe, a belt without buckle. I also have given him gift cards (JB hifi, cinema, coles group, liquor land, go karting, whale watching) and think about giving him a leather jacket this year (if I can find one)


  • Maybe tickets to some event he may like.


  • underwear, socks men’s perfume, watch ,wallet, photo frames of family ,stubby holder custom. Depends what hobbies his into maybe a voucher to a place or a shop he likes um chocolates for stocking fillers uh maybe new clothes as men can be hopeless in shopping for them selves so good luck ????


  • Perfume or shades


  • My husband is hard to buy for too, because if he wants something he’ll usually just get it. I usually enjoy up buying him socks, jocks and t-shirts because they’re things he won’t actually buy for himself haha. I bought him some of the Step-One undies with the bamboo fabric on the thigh area. He thought they were a bit spesh.


  • I’m getting mine a new camping chair as he broke his this year, they are always so hard to buy for!!

    Maybe a Gold Class Movie ticket for you both to use


  • Always hard to buy for. I try to see what his latest interest is and go with that. Sometimes Sudoku puzzle books or tools depending on if he has a project he’s working in. A jig saw puzzle is always good and family can join in.


  • See if you can determine your hubs interests . A good book if you know he likes reading , or a tool kit if he likes working around the house . If he likes eating make his favourite snacks /food in a gift basket perhaps.
