He subscribes to Linda, follows Deke religiously. Last year he hinted for [and got] a Bamboo.......not sure what to get this year.........help!!!

Make: Online's Holiday Gift Guide for DIY Photography lists a bunch of great gift ideas for the Photoshop addict in your life. It might even be worth looking around at the other gift guides for ideas. In addition to DIY Photography there are: Gifts You Can Make, Blinky Blinky, Kids, Mischief Maker's Guide, Gifts for Dads, Science and Chemistry, Gifts Under $20, Santa Claus Machines, Geek Toys for Grown Up Girls & Boys, Made in Japan, MAKE's Toolbox Gift Guide, Retro Tech Guide, and Music Machines.
If you don't find something there, you might consider the Pantone Huey. For a few dollars more you can get the Huey Pro. It might be a little off-budget, but the Lensbaby would also make a great gift.
Don't forget there's also the O'Reilly Holiday Gift Guide with lots of fabulous ideas for the digital photographer.

Here are some ideas that come to mind, although admittedly, the first thing that popped in my head regardless of price was a big, beautiful, high definition monitor, but that's because it wasn't my credit card at risk! So, staying closer to budget...
Regardless, sounds like he's lucky to have a partner who supports his creative addiction! Happy Holidays to you both.
