For my oldest daughter's 18th birthday, my sister planned a scavenger hunt for her and a friend. She's in her mid 40s & still talks about it! If memory serves, she started her off with a tank of gas - she had to go to a specific gas station because she got the next clue from each vendor. The gas station sent her to a flower shop where she received a beautiful bouquet. Anyway, you get the idea - she & her friend went out for lunch, to the movies, shopping, a book store, etc. Granted it takes a little work - my sister wrote short poems for all the clues, had to deliver them ahead of time and then had gift cards waiting at each place, but it was so much fun!! Just a suggestion . . . good luck!!

We threw a big party for my husband’s 70th. One of his best friends from college came all the way from Singapore. Meanwhile, for mine last winter, I got all I wanted, a cozy family dinner and lots of flowers in bleak February. A son coming from Canada might be all your husband would desire. Show him how much he means to you. That is enough.

How about a 'ride along' in a police car? Do you think he would enjoy that? Or maybe tickets to a special event.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been in love with the Peter Bilt truck. It may have been from seeing them on the road when our family took vacations. I thought they were the best looking trucks in the world! So for my 50th birthday, my sister hired a friend who picked us up in his Peter Bilt and drove us to Del Mar, CA where we met our husbands for lunch. When we were in the middle of this lovely town, the driver blew the horn loud and long in honor of my day! I'm not sure how the residents and visitors reacted, but for me, it was fantastic! I share this because even what appears to be simple or silly, it might just be the best gift your husband will love. I'm 77 now and would do it again if the opportunity presented it. Good luck!

He likes movies so you could paid for his movies in advance. You could do a Photo calendar. Picture of him for the month of his birthday, picture of the both of you for the month of your Ann., Your birthday, children's B. D. Anyways, it's a nice thought. I hope he has a great birthday. Reita

My husband is also very difficult to buy for. If he's ask what he wants, he says " I already have everything I want in need, I have you and our grandkids." So I got each of his children to sent one picture of them and one picture with their kids in it. I took all those pictures and had a travel mug complete with the no spill lid made with the pictures on it. He was moved to tears, because he loves his family so very much, so we also had a coffee cup made for him a few days later. I wasn't able to use all the pictures that got sent to me, so we used the grandkids on the travel mug and his kids on the coffee mug. One for home, and one for taking in the car to work or on trips. Perfect for him gift. Now, I have no idea what I will do for his Christmas present, but I am on the hunt and also gathering ideas. Good luck, whatever you do, I am sure he will love it if it comes from you and your heart.

It's time to start thinking about what to do for my husband's 70th birthday coming up in April. The problem is, he has no hobbies, he needs no clothes, he's not social so he has no friends. If he sees something he wants, needed or not, he buys it. He has so much "stuff", it will take me forever to get rid of if he goes before I do. He mentioned to our kids he would like to go to Las Vegas one more time, but that costs plenty, which I don't have. We eat out at restaurants often. He goes to the movies at least once a week. I even thought about making a substantial payment on a huge bill HE has made. I hate to not do something special for him because 70 is a big milestone, but I am at a loss. Our son and his family would come for a short visit from Canada to help celebrate, too. Sorry... just needed to vent....

Oh; Donna! I have the same problem. My husband is a recluse....needs nothing. I feel for you! And....is the same age.

I guess we're kindred spirits then. LOL
