    Well as everyone is posting I thought I'd ask for some help too...
    I like to think I'm usually quite good at shopping for gifts, but I'm dreadful with budgets!
    Its my OH's birthday in a few weeks and I can't say how truly fantastic he's been, especially this last 12 months when I've lost my job, been ill, and today had some insert expletive here hit my car and drive off.
    The main problem is I'm flat broke, my pay next month is about £300 and whilst I would usually be giving all that to him (as he is being a star and paying for everything) it now needs to go towards my car insurance excess [​IMG]
    I know he would be very unimpressed if I spent much on him by using my CC so was hoping for ideas for thoughtful gifts that don't cost too much. He's in his mid 20's and loves cars (I would have loved to have got him a track day in his own car but they're £100ish)
    I should have a million ideas as we've been together a long time but I find men so much harder to buy for then women, especially on a budget. Please help! xx
  2. Buy yourself some lingerie and shag him senseless in it.

    We men are simple creatures, barely more sentient than a rock.
