Women are supposed to be simple to shop for? You're talking like MEN are the ones who spend 95% of their year at a mall.

Don't know either of your men but I'd vote for something outdoor related, video game related, or tv related...like the newest season of his favorite show on DVD, or a weekend trip to some fishing getaway for 2-4 people (women not included).

Get his car detailed, do his housework for a month, etc.

I know I am trying to be cute and creative this year. This is my first year riding and my SO has been riding for almost 15 years now.
So... I'm going to attempt to make a sexy set of pics on our bikes. Mostly on mine since I can ride it... he has a huge ZX14 and there is no way I'm moving that around. So I went online and looked up 'chicks on bikes' found some fun poses, bought a couple cute/ sexy outfits and this weekend I'm going to turn the garage into a photo studio.
I don't think I want to make a calendar... just seems a little too corny for my liking, so I'm going to go even cornier and make a motorcycle magazine. I'm gunna find great articles on his bike and on the history of bike and then throw my sexy pics in the mix.

Who knows... trying to be creative.
And if you GUYS think is is retarded... please speak up and let me know and I will change my ideas.

Calendar would work better IMO.

On a side note, I'd be making sure it was a girl or yourself taking the photos...no need to imbed the jealousy bug with your sexy set of photos...

Better yet, let him take the photos and make a calendar of you. Then he'll get the poses he wants, and be involved in the creation of it all.

Not sure, I usually have some great idea but not this year I did however see these binoculars that are also a digital camera might be cool if they really work like they say. What about you?

For me, the kitchen is mine. It is really why I bought the house I am in. So cook books, kitchen devices, exotic hard to get incredients, grillin fare items.

And pretty much anything Harley Sportster / Buell related I am all good.
