Get Crafty

A scrapbook or photo album of pictures of you together is a good gift for a romantic holiday. You don’t really need any kind of crafting skill to put together a scrapbook.

Ordinary photo albums or scrapbooks where you can write on the pages to leave comments about the pictures are great homemade gift ideas for boyfriend. You can find them with attractive covers or you can decorate the cover yourself. Many are made so that you can put one particularly great picture on the cover, which is perfect for a favorite picture of you together.

You can arrange the photos by date, events like a weekend getaway or time spent at the beach, or just put them in at random. What will make the gift special is what you’ll write for each photo. Personalized little notes are always a nice touch.

Tell him how handsome he looks in the picture, or how much fun you had that day. Say something directly to him or about him in the photo, or jot down a pleasant memory from that time.

A Nice Basket

Aside from that, there are many other things you can make besides a photo album. Take some of his favorite things and make a gift basket. A basket with movie rental gift certificates, movie candy, popcorn, and soda is great for the movie lover and doesn’t require much time or craftiness.

If he loves basketball, a schedule of games, and an assortment of game-day snacks would be appreciated. Any items you put together that all relate to a hobby he loves, no matter what it is, can make great homemade gift ideas for boyfriend.
