Likely the worst Christmas gift I was given was "the clapper". Oh, she also gave me a small plastic version of a tanker truck she bought at a gas station on the way over to exchange gifts.

I want a Clapper...

How long have you been seeing him? Also - and this may sound terrible, but are you expecting a big gift from him? Because if not, something more spendy like Disney tickets might embarrass him.

I like the idea of concert tickets. How about two tickets and a date for that night to use them?

If you've been together a good while and you know his specific likes, then you could get more personal. i.e. My husband is a Lord of the Rings fanatic and for our first Christmas together I got him a framed map of Middle Earth. Don't laugh. It was actually the perfect gift.

Worst: probably anything having to do with cleaning, like a broom or mop or vacuum cleaner

My dad used to say never to buy your wife anything with an electric plug.

Best- I hate getting gifts, honestly.. I much prefer an experience, ie going out of town, concerts, etc.

Worst- Anything that you get them because you like it/want them to have it.

My husband and I actually gifted each other one year with a vacuum cleaner, LOL.

What can I say...we needed one! Badly.

I mean we got other little things for one another too but we laughed at how long we had obviously been married when we bought each other a vacuum.

I think the next year our big mutual gift was pots & pans. (Does it count that they were AMAZING non-stick awesome-looking pots & pans?)

However, I promise that if DH had given me a hand-held vacuum as my first, "dating" gift from him, he'd have received it back...and not comfortably.
