What he really wants

If you're still trying to figure out what to get your husband or boyfriend this year, check out these last-minute gift ideas.

What he really wants


He probably doesn't want a new tie or sweater this year, but he would love the iPad 2, a new iPhone or the Kindle Fire. Guys love their gadgets. If your hubby hasn't bought himself any big-boy toys lately, consider the latest smartphone, HDTV, tablet, e-reader, laptop or other gadget. If you don't have time left to order online, head to Best Buy or another electronics store to see what's in stock. Most stores have extended hours during Christmas week; go late to avoid the big crowds and heavy traffic.

Sexy stuff

Some of the best gifts for your man are actually presents for both of you. Consider sexy gifts for the bedroom -- from lingerie to sex toys to new sheets. Adam and Eve is offering free two-day shipping on purchases of $59 or more, while Victoria's Secret has free second-business-day express shipping on orders greater than $100 with the code SHIPVS2DAY. To guarantee Christmas delivery, your order must be placed by 5:00 PM EST, Wednesday, Dec 21.

Gift cards

Don't try to figure out what your DIY guy might want from the home improvement store. Instead, get him a gift card to Sears, Home Depot or Lowe's, and let him pick out what he really wants. Gift cards might not be a romantic holiday gift idea, but they are certainly practical.

Date night

If you've been together for years and have all the material things you need, then give each other the gift of a date night. Busy schedules don't allow much couple time for many people. If you haven't been spending enough time together, break out your calendars and set a date night for every month throughout 2012. Consider it a real appointment and stick to it. Couple time is essential for a happy, healthy relationship.
