See what he (or she!) keeps browsing for on Amazon or other stores. Check out his wishlist. If neither results in a decent list of possible gifts, then go for the nuclear option: a gift card. (I personally prefer to receive cash, but my husband won't go that route.)
Jill Shalvis author of Merry Christmas, Baby
First of all, this gift should have absolutely no practical value around the house — unless it’s a chef, cleaning service, or nanny so that you can whisk her away for the holidays! Second of all, it shouldn’t be a gift card unless it’s for a plane to ticket to somewhere warm with a beach. And third, this present should say that you know and love this person, and gave the gift a lot of thought. Bonus points for making them laugh and/or cry when they open the wrappings. :)
Jessica Scott author of All I Want For Christmas Is You
Does it involve fishing? Because fishing is my spousal unit’s passion. He loves spending time on the water and I have to admit, I do to. He’d pretty easy to shop for: fishing lures, tackle. Anything involving bass fishing and he’s a happy man.

Merry Christmas, Baby by Jill Shalvis
Wild child Chloe Thompson can't believe how much things have changed. She still can't get enough of her sexy husband Sawyer, but he seems to prefer working to impending fatherhood. So tonight, a very pregnant Chloe is escaping her troubles at the town Christmas party.
Sheriff Sawyer Thompson hopes surprising Chloe at the party will give him a chance to set things right. But as the snow begins to fall and the wind rages, he wonders whether he can make it back in time. While mother nature conspires to keep Sawyer and Chloe apart, an unexpected arrival will require them to kiss and make up . . . and ring in the happiest holiday Lucky Harbor has ever seen.
What I thought about Merry Christmas, Baby....
This was a very sweet look at a couple as they prepare to welcome their first child into the world. It's Christmas and Chloe has lots of doubts and anxiety and needs to have some fun. Her husband is on the road, so she goes to the town Christmas party alone. Of course, it's snowing, the roads are closed and everything is just about right until Chloe's water breaks and ... well you can guess the rest. Really well done and a sweet love story that made me go and buy Head over Heels, Chloe and Sawyer's story from the Lucky Harbor series. .
All I Want For Christmas Is You by Jessica ScottAll Major Patrick MacLean wanted was Christmas with the woman and child who were his family in everything but name.
