We took to the streets and asked the guys for their gift ideas. Here’s what we heard…
A Six-pack of Beer
If he likes beer you can’t go wrong with this. Tie it with a ribbon and attatch a rose if you like.
Dinner Out, on You
Give him a coupon for dinner for two at his favorite restaurant. Bonus: you get a romantic night out.
Free lessons for_______
Has he always wanted to learn how to golf, fly a plane, ski, skydive, bungee jump? Get him some free lessons.
Get him a collection of CD’s from his favorite artist. Or a CD that he’s been wanting.
Glamour Photos of YOU
Someone we know had a professional photoshoot, and framed the best picture for her boyfriend. They turned out fantastic…and her boyfriend loved it!
What about a daily calendar, you flip the page everyday to reveal a quote or joke or picture. A funny version is great because, it will start his day off with a smile.
Has he been eyeing that new screwdriver at the hardware store? Men do like tools, or so we’ve been told.
Scrapbook of Memories
Put together a “Scrapbook of Memories”. This takes a lot of work, so we suggest starting early. Collect things like movie stubs from movies he’s taken you to, pictures, postcards from your vacation spots, little poems, type out the words to “your song”, loveletters you’ve sent him or he’s sent you, emails, something from the beginning of your relationship, anything that has a special memory behind it. Nicely arrange everything you gather in a photo album. Include an introduction page, with a little message for him and the date.
Subscription to his Favorite Magazine
Would he like a subscription to Sports Illustrated, Time, Men’s Health, or some other magazine?
We met a guy whose girlfriend took a picture of his dog and had a painting made. She framed it and gave it to him for Christmas. He beamed as he told us about.
Tickets to a Sports Event
Get him tickets to a hockey game or concert that he’de like to see. You an buy tickets online at OpenSeats.com.
If he has a favorite sports team look around for a collector’s item of some sort.
