With chanukah and another personal special occasion coming up, I need a gift for my DH.

I read previous posts and the ideas I believe mentioned were things he already has or its not exactly his style.
He wouldn't want a wallet, shoes, valet (he would think this would be more for me to keep things organized) lol etc.
He's into science, medicine, tools, technology, BBQ, outdoors, animals and fish and wine and alcohol. He also would appreciate a gag gift.

He already has a apple watch, iPad, cool bottle openers, personalized picture products and crafts of us etc...
He would like unique and cool things.

So if anyone is up to the challenge and has ideas, let it flow and help a DW

What tools do you already have? And what's your budget?

Let's just say he has a nice extensive collection. So unless its an unusual gift or something, he probably has it. He is extremely handy.

Budget would be around 250.

I actually was thinking this and casually mentioned it in passing, and he wasn't so for the idea. It doesn't exactly reflect his image lol.

If he is into technology he might like a 3D printer. U should be able to find one that fits your budget.

DH loves his! But I recommend Victorinox over the Leatherman brand. They're much sturdier.

Again - if you can tell us which tools he gets the most use out of, then we can suggest tools/options which will help him use them better.

A much smaller example than what you're looking for, but: DH recently ordered for me a screw guide from the States. It's something I never would have bought for myself, but it makes working a large project much easier.

Does he have a good workbench yet?

TBH I honestly don't know what he has, lol. I don't have any clue on tools. I do know though that in his tool dept, he won't want me buying really something. He rather save up and buy something according to his preference instead of being polite to me for something I bought him.
Thanks for your help though!

Im assuming I would have to buy all the items to create something, no? Trying to stay simple here, thats why I ask.
I am not so familiar with 3d printers.

No, I never bought one. A friend's husband is a science guy and for a big birthday, she bought him a super fancy telescope, well out of your price range. But there are plenty of lower priced ones on Amazon.

The new VR glasses are really cool. The Oculus Quest 2 just came out and I think it’s within your budget.
