Price range would help. Also, his current typical clothing choices.

Red lingerie is the normal Christmas gift. Remember less is more.

so what to get the man who has everything?

ask his best friend if he has talked about anything he likes lately.
its always nice when the gf/wife buys something you wouldn't at all expect her to.

no doubt, he's expecting you to go with the usual sweater/tie/watch gift.
so try and step out of the box a bit (xbox or flat screen tv HOLLA!)

Ah, so true! I would suggest the OP goes to the BF's best friend/brother/someone else who knows him really well. Try multiple different sexual positions and acts with this friend/relative because they will probably know what your BF would enjoy the most. That takes out a lot of the guess work on your part so you can perform the act he's most likely to get the most out of.

A couple of places I might suggest, both of which are run by forum regulars.

Sam Hober is an excellent source of ties and pocket squares (http://www.samhober.com/). The ties can be customized based on fabric choice (of which there are many) and length/width.

Kent Wang (https://www.kentwang.com/) is a great place for many different kind of accessories: ties, pocket squares, cuff links, scarves, etc.

You think you can give us something to work with? How does he normally dress? Hobbies? Location? Overall interests? There's lots of fantastic gadgets or tools that are very useful that guys will not buy for themselves, but become very meaningful gifts when the girl gets it for him.

How much do you want to spend? What line of work is he in and does it require he wear a tie? Does he read? Does he already dress well in your opinion? Nail down a few of these parameters and I think you will get some suggestions that are actually helpful.

Judging by the OP's first post and her second post, I'm thinking that she's a troll. Could even be AB by the way she used special gift, but I don't think he'd be dumb enough to make more socks. You can see my sig for better reference.

I doubt it's a troll. I think it's a spammer who's signature URL or whatever got dropped due to a programming error or anti-spam controls the forum has instituted.

Yeah, I meant troll/spammer. Sometimes I use them interchangeably, but basically just something detrimental to the forum.

Checked. Not the case, at least at the point when I checked.
