Remote control helicopter every bloke wanted one when they were a kid.
Car drifting course in Malaysia.
Motorboat/sailing certification course.
Personal trainer come around for 3 months.
Four hands Massage session at home.

So many things to do especial at 45 mid life crisis territory can get him a nice skateboard/ scooter.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys ! :D

four hand massage sounds kinky ... a mankini might not work for his figure (lack of, that is!).

i asked him outright last night and he said he doesn't mind a new pair of headphones.... isn't that a bit personal? how am i to know which ones sound good ?

if he travels a lot on the plane, might be worth getting a BOSE QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones.
