Every year I struggle with this. I asked my Facebook friends but got nothing I could really use. Here are the details. Early 40s man, married, 5 kids. Buy themselves what they need when they want. We work in financial planning/investment services, and he makes about 300k annually. I, obviously, do not make anything near that. He's not a tie-wearing guy, not a home-fix-it guy, he loves sports. A gift certificate is kind of out because then it puts a set price on the gift. I would love some ideas, and I appreciate the help! Thank you!

What about a weather guide for the office, mongramed door mat, monogramed coffee cup, wine gift basket, does he like a certain candy, put it in a candy dish with candy. Photo display for all his photos of the family just a few.

Since he likes sports, what type of sports does he enjoy? Does he have any favorite sports teams? You can find a lot of sports oriented gifts. If he likes teams that are local to your area then you should check out Marshalls and TJ Maxx. I find sports team products there all the time. If he is a Green Bay fan think about getting a Vince Lombardi book for him or something similar.

Here are a few products from Collections Etc. Use code 3JU5D1 for 20% off and free shipping.

Packers and a few other teams including the Bears Clock $19.99

For anyone interested I just ordered a family figure set for my car back in September from a company and I loved them when they came in. www.letterrip.net. They were reasonably priced and shipped pretty fast. They had lots of choices for people and pets too which I loved :)

As far as gift ideas go: I think the digital frame for your bosses office is nice - Costco has a good deal on a PanDigital for $39 right now. Consumer reports gave it a good review and I ordered it for a gift.
