May is my boyfriend’s birthday month. So every year, I had been struggling to buy the perfect gift for him. After three years of being together, I am running out of creative ideas on what to buy for him. I feel like I already gave him most of the things that he wants that I can probably afford. So for you girlies experiencing the same issue every year, here are fifteen more ideas to give your boyfriend, partner in life, and significant other. 🙂
Enroll Him in Classes
This tip was given to me by my ever so brilliant manager. He’s very passionate with learning new things, so he told me that this is something he would appreciate. Cooking lessons, Dance Classes, Yoga Sessions – whatever you think would work for him 🙂
Reasons Why I Love You
This maybe a little out there – but hey, this still works. Just add a little twist to it 🙂 Does not necessarily have to be about Love always, you can state reasons why your partner makes you happy, why you wont let him go, his cute and lovable habits, and many more. As long as it’s not negative. You can write it in a notebook, coupon cards, or game cards. Just be creative!
This would be a reminder of your love for him – every month! May it be a gym membership for a year, a subscription of his favorite magazine – may it be Time Magazine or FHM.
The Gift of Giving is just priceless. Choose an institution that you know is close to his heart. The elderly, orphaned children, or people with special needs. This would also be an eye opening and an unforgettable experience for the both of you.
Did it last year and it was awesome! Try to gather his closest friends and surprise him. Trust me, his smiles, laughter and the clueless look on his face is worth all your hard work.
Ask his closest friends and relatives to write down their favorite memory with your significant other. Did this just this year – and it was another fun experience too. Common denominator with all their letters is that my boyfriend was a good guy and a cheapskate! 🙂
Trust me, all men love shoes! 🙂
Scratch Map from Quirks
If you guys love to travel, this is a cool gift. My good friend showed this to me as this was his birthday present for his lovey-dovey. The deal is you need to scratch off the countries you had already been to. There are also some travel tips and trivia for some of the countries. You can also write down the music you had listened to, highlights of the vacation, and the friends you had met within the trip.
Scratch Maps available at Quirks for Php 1050
Now this may take some time to plan and if you are on a tight budget you also might need to save up first. Tip? Wait for a seat sale that many budget airlines are offering and book that flight! A day tour at Cebu just to pig out and take photos would be an unforgettable experience.
Who does not appreciate personalized gifts?
Mark’s Mini Me
Give him something related to his hobby – if he’s into golf, basketball, or playstation. Good thing my boyfriend does not like any of these things, so I purchased a Lego set for him instead 🙂
Guilt Free Shopping
Take him somewhere you think he would appreciate and buy him whatever he wants.
King of the Day
Make him the King of the Day – treat him to buffet and to a spa for a free massage. Eat, Relax, and Enjoy!
His Favorite Home Cooked Meal for the Week
If he’s working and he always have problem deciding which fast food chain he should buy his lunch from, then this maybe a perfect gift for him. Spoil him for a week by cooking and preparing his work lunch for him, inclusive of delivery of course.
This would be my favorite! Book a hotel or schedule a sleep over and just do nothing. Just eat, laugh out loud and watch DVD marathons.
So there goes my Top 15! Any ideas? Feel free to share 🙂
Spread the Love!
