Help me come up with a fantastic birthday gift for my husband. Special circumstances make this challenging. (Maybe a little NSFW).

Ok, so I had a baby two weeks ago. I've been on bed rest since two days before the birth, and will continue to be on almost-bed-rest for another month or so. My husband has had to do EVERYTHING, including caring for our 2 1/2 year old, bringing me food & bev, cleaning, groceries, laundry. On top of all this he came down with bronchitis (verging on pneumonia) 12 days ago. It's been intense, and I want to show him how much I appreciate his fabulousness. Going out for a fancy dinner is tricky, 'cause his birthday is November 5th (not quite the 6-week mark, when milk supply is established and I'm released from resting all the damn time). I'd like to treat him to a dirty hotel weekend, but the reason for the bed rest is my girl parts aren't behaving as they should, and money is tight right now.
That's a lot of "but but but". Here's what he likes (he's a creative-type in the film & tv industry):
The Ottawa Senators (rabid fan)
Beautifully shot MF or FF porn (in the vein of I Feel Myself)
Excellent TV (Breaking Bad, Deadwood, Modern Family, Dexter and the like)
I bought him an Armani sweater that he loved when we were more flush
