Buying presents for someone else can be really difficult, because even if you like them and know them well, it's hard to be sure they don't already have X, or prefer Y, or whatever. You can of course frankly ask them for some suggestions of several things they might like as a gift ; or discuss generally the sorts of things they like.
This is why many people rather buy a gift certificate at a shop you know they buy things, so they can choose something they really want.
Many men complain they get too many socks, though I find you never have too many !
I'm sure he loves yopu and values your gifts, he's just not as skilled you are at pretending to be delighted by something he doesn't like. Its his manners and social skills that are lacking, not his love
Maybe it'd be better to have a calm and friendly chat about the problem of gift buying, and find a solution ; either gift vouchers, or a discussion every six months of what each of you would most like. And if you go shopping together at times, try discussing preferences - "Oooh, I really like that colour" - "That seems popular and fashionable these days, but I really don't like it ".
