The problem is I don't think he'll appreciate a leather cufflink box or similar. Maybe a kiddush card because he always tries to balance a regular bentcher and keep it from closing lol!

Thanks for the ideas! he does not really know how to cook much, would not make himself a smoothie... we don't have a car... not the handy type... sometimes he skims the magazines but he usually thinks it's a waste of time... lol!! I have such a hard time thinking of gifts!! (we should only know of such issues....)

cufflinks - he has diamond ones from wedding and I can't afford nicer so feels weird to buy him a new one that's a downgrade

Go into Xsos, they have very nice ones that are cheap (I think) I like to get there so dh has a few and can wear different for what he is in the mood. it will also mean his wedding ones will last longer.

Following this topic coz hoping to get an idea for dh Banging head

There is a set of Chumashim divided by parshah. Each small pocket Sefer is one Sedra with rashi. Perfect if he would want to be maven sedrah on the go. It costs around $150 if I remember correctly.
