1st yr dating anniversary gifts for him
That way when a birthday or Christmas rolls around, I look and "Oh yeah! Most guys like practical gifts, not romantic gifts.
I would always prefer a tool, a radar detector or even a pair of socks over a box of chocolate, a bottle of wine, or a fancy dinner.

This is just a dating anniversary but we do live together and I think marriage will come in the next 5 years.
and Christmas is coming up and the only thing he said he wants is me and a long weight lifting bar (seperatly of course) I was thinking of sending one of those edible arrangements to his work but I never know if he is driving or in the office (works for a trucking company) Any Ideas?
Going out to eat is always nice, but if you want to give him a gift, think about what he really likes to do.
(We don't know, and you haven't told us how much you want to spend either.) Going on his suggestion of the lifting bar, what about: - Weight lifting gloves - Additional workout gear, like dumbbells or plates for the bar (these get very pricey, though) - A mat for your home gym - i Tunes gift card for workout music - A portable stereo for his MP3 player - One of those i Pod armbands - New earphones - Workout clothes - Gift card for new exercise shoes (he should pick these out himself) - Homemade coupon for post-exercise massage and dinner made by you Stuff like that.Just think about what he likes and what he might need or enjoy based on that.Please register to participate in our discussions with 1.5 million other members - it's free and quick!Some forums can only be seen by registered members.
Or think about times he has said things like, "I need to get a new jacket one of these days" or "I saw the coolest fishing stuff at Bass Pro" or whatever.I have a little online notepad through Google Docs where I jot that stuff down.
