Depending on how much you have to spend....

small compressor for the car
car fridge
new esky
camp kitchen
double stretcher bed
decent headlamp
Camp oven
new fishing shirt & some lures

All else fails, maybe try and plan a camping trip with him and a few mates (boys weekend?)
Or plan a trip for just the 2 of you, for a night or two (no kids) and go for a camp/fish

Also, go on redballoon and organize a deep sea fishing charter?

Don’t you share money ?

 We both earn money separately

Bet the pool table is used as a dumping ground for clean laundry that needs to be ironed
