We have a simple solution of how we know what to get each other for Christmas each year. What we do is post a list of what we want. The list can be specific (a 46" LED Panasonic TV model number xxxyy) or general (gift certificate to Nordstrom's). It is a guideline and not hard and fast. But it sure helps everyone know where the other person's desires are.

So for my gift, I listed a Galco SkyOps holster for a Glock 26 in black. (Thank you Ram Rod for your recommendation.) Even printed out two online sources with all the important details highlighted. My daughter's response was, "uh, er, too expensive". My son's response was, "uh dad, you already have a drawer full of holsters. I am NOT buying you another to be put there. What else do you want?"

What else do I want? I don't know. I really wanted that holster. Ugh.

So for their gifts, give each one of them one of your old holsters.... then you will have more room in the holster drawer.

Problem solved ! :rofl:

EMP, I know what you mean. When my wife asked me what I wanted from Santa this year, I replied, "a new gun" she just rolled her eyes. So I guess no new gun for me.

If you think about it your son has a point. You have an addiction man, I think you need a holster doctor!

How ironic. My fiancée has been on me to give her ideas for Christmas, but if I were to mention a holster or grips, she would very likely flip out! No, she isn't keen on my gun craft. Any gun-gals peering in that may provide a perspective?

WOW...I've got it easy...My wife tells me to go buy whatever gun or gun stuff I want... She'll wrap it, put it under the tree and tell the kids she picked it out and everyone's happy...especially me...

The worst part is having to leave it under the tree til Christmas....

I somehow managed to pull that off this year too! It was a first for me.

Ive been itching for a Don Hume IWB, and possibly a S&W M&P or 642 to go in it.

Guess the young'un is getting some packing peanuts and an empty box from Santa.

I hinted (in a joking manner no less) that sometime in the distant future I wouldn't mind recieving an AR. My fiancé literally laughed out loud. There was almost floor rolling. At least she didn't completely strike it down, just said you want it, you buy it yourself. But I think buying a house will come first.

My husband and I worked out a deal.
He has his 4x4 project truck sitting in the yard, another one in the driveway, the Mercedes he is yanking the engine out of for his truck, his tools every were, model trains, piles of steel for his welding, and the endless list of parts and supplies he want that I try to get for him.

Our bed room is my gun safe, I'm setting up an area in the shed for reloading, and the rabbits are mine...they even have cute names (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, dog food, stew...)

If I were you I would find out what her hobbies/ passions are and then do your best to support them. This may mean hours of watching her try on clothing with a smile of your face and some real questions or comment about them. Then ask her if you can share your hobby/passion with her. It might work.
