I'm 16 and my boyfriend is 17. His birthday is June 7th and our 3 month anniversary will be on May 21st. I have absolutely no idea what to do for his 18th birthday. I don't want to be too personal about it, but I also don't want it to seem like I'm bored with him or whatever. So please if you have any advice for me that would be truly appreciated.

Hello itty bitty,
A relationship with a boy is the same as most other relationships in your life. You mentioned you are 16 so I can see why you worry about not getting something "too personal" because this would imply to him that you are "getting too serious". Well since you are together now you must have a good thing going on and so get something that you would give to a good friend. It's OK for you two to let each other know you're into the other.
A cool idea is to plant a tree for them. OK it's out, I'm a crazy treehugger, but if you plant a tree now, it will be so much bigger in a few years and perhaps you guys will still be together and you'll be able to visit the tree. And even if you're not, hopefully you can manage to be somewhat friends who can appreciate this one birthday as a good day in each of your lives. A tree will last a long time and yet change all the while so that's why it's such a good semblance of the passage of time which is also measured by most people for who they spent that time with. Or a killer CD is "I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One" (not as cheesy as it sounds) or "I am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass" both by Yo La Tengo. Cheap CDs, find them probably at your local used book/music store. (05/06/2010)
I'm 16 as well and my boyfriend is turning 18 on the 14th. I got him a pair of boxer shorts that have kisses all over them, like lips. It depends on who your boyfriend is, but I know he'll like them. I also got him a picture frame. I'm gonna put a picture of when we went to prom in it and on top of all of that, I'm throwing him a surprise party. He lives about an hour and half away from me and I'm driving out there without him knowing that his family and I are throwing him a party, it's gonna be so awesome. Good luck with your boyfriend.
