Creative gifts for you boyfriend don’t have to cost that much. It’s the time you spend finding the right thing for your boyfriend and the thought behind it that counts. You can’t put a price on creative gifts from the heart.
While that pair of tickets to a concert he really wants to go to is probably a great gift, it’s not always possible to spend that kind of money on a gift. But it’s always possible to do something nice and surprise your boyfriend with a meaningful gesture. Creative gifts can really be as simple as a meaningful note.
A Love Note
A love note, a note of encouragement, or even a love letter written on stationary and sprayed with your favorite perfume can be something that really makes his day. You could even send it through the mail to make it extra special.
If you’d rather not wait, put it between the pages of his book or put it on top of the TV remote. Just be sure you leave where he’s certain to find it right away.
Some Tasty Food
Some creative gifts don’t cost much of anything but time. Bake him a batch of his favorite cookies and wrap them in a pretty ribbon. Make him a loaf of banana bread, some cinnamon rolls, or whatever his favorite treat might be. You could even make his favorite dish and surprise him with an impromptu dinner.
His favorite meal along with a favorite dessert served by you is one of those great gifts everyone would love to receive. To make the evening extra special, buy a DVD he wants and wrap it up for you to watch after the meal.
For the movie lover, a movie night basket is a great idea. Buy a couple DVDs you know he wants (or include a gift certificate for a movie rental or movie tickets) throw in a package or two of popcorn, a couple of boxes of candy, and a couple cans or bottles of soda or other beverages.
Albums, Scrapbooks, & Pics – Oh My!
You could also surprise him with a framed photo of the two of you together in a decorate frame. You can purchase blank frames in most craft or department stores. Decorate the frame in his favorite colors, or use your prettiest penmanship to write all around the edges.
Write a note about how much fun you had when the picture was taken, how wonderful he was that day, and anything else that you want to express.
Does he talk about want to learn how to cook, paint, draw, swim, etc.? Surprise him by paying for a lesson or two. Take a cooking or painting class together. Surprising him with a “how to draw” book and an assortment of drawing pencils. You can even find discounted lessons to just about anything on Groupon.
