Do any of you out there suffer from the “I don’t know”s whenever your husband/boyfriends birthday comes around?? Well in this house, my husband does. He kills me. I don’t know if it’s a woman thing or what, but there is always something I can use. Maybe it’s because in a family, women are more likely to put themselves last? I don’t know, but Monday brings my husbands birthday and he has spent the last month “I don’t know”-ing me to death. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime and their 2 day shipping. The only clue he gave me, is that he needed new belts. Up until yesterday, that’s all I had for him! I offered clothes, no. I offered skin care, nope. He was all set in both departments. He was all set in travel stuff because that was his Christmas, and needed nothing for work, so where does that leave me? What do I tell my mom and my sister when they ask what he wants?

Well with 3 days left, I think I nailed it! Well, I haven’t thought of something for my sister to do yet so I half nailed it, if that’s a thing….
Last Minute Birthday Gift Ideas for the Man Who Needs Nothing
First and foremost, belts. You can’t go wrong with a nice belt or wallet (don’t forget the dollar or it’s bad luck!). I stuck with something really basic because I didn’t want to branch off too much, I get a little wild for my husbands taste. He likes to keep things simple for the most part.
If you wanted to get fancy though, you could go with a Slide belt. I saw these but I had already bought the other belts. These are on the list for next time, maybe Fathers Day or something…
I don’t know about you, but these just seem so cool to me lol!
Ok, next I got him to agree to new sneakers. This used to be my go to but, it’s actually been a year or so since he got a new pair. I usually head straight for Pumas, they’ve been a family favorite for a while until I laid eyes on the Adidas X_PLR. White on white, gorgeous. To get these in his size though was a real pain in the tush for some reason. I guess I wasn’t the only one who had fallen in love lol!
Lastly, the best gift of all in my opinion would be the Ninja Coffee Bar. I’m super psyched about this one because this man loves his coffee and espresso. I myself have the Ninja blender, which he got for me for Mother’s Day two years ago, so I know this product is going to be great. It has a milk frother and we will finally be rid of those darn K-cups! I’m feeling greener already ha!
They also carry the coffee bar with the glass or thermal carafe, for the people who want to make more than just a single cup at a time. We are more of a single cup household, but I will add those options here incase that’s something you’re interested in!
So, now that I’ve shared with you my last-minute birthday gifts, what do you think?? Men are just so much harder to shop for, in my opinion! What are the kinds of things you buy for the man in your life? Have you had to deal with the same kind of situation? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!!
