Birthday Gift Ideas for 19 Year Old Boyfriend

He's financially sound, I'm not. I'm a 17 year old college student, he's my boyfriend of 7 months and he's turning 19. 24/7/365 he'll do whatever it takes to make me happy; I want to do the same for him.

With what he spends on one coat, I can buy 3 outfits. Not only is his phone over $1000, he gave me mine. I was going get him a new watch, but my budget is $75. I want to do something not materialistic, but sweet, thoughtful, and creative. You know, a feeling that he can't buy. Help?

If he is financially sound, he probably has everything he needs, so give him something he wants. Maybe a trip, or maybe buy some new "clothes" to make him happy. All men love to see their women try to please them. Just a suggestion (01/03/2011)

$75 is a lot of $$ to spend on a birthday gift, I think. However, if that's what you want to spend, maybe you could buy him something small, fancy, and luxurious (say a few fancy chocolate truffles, or a designer tie) that are within your price range because you're not buying a lot of them. Or, if you can cook, give him a certificate for "Dessert of the Month". Every month you can buy/make a fancy dessert for him. :) Another idea: do something fun like take him to an amusement park, a boat ride, or go-carts. Bring a gourmet picnic. (01/03/2011)

AngelicLove, depending on where you are at you could do a carriage ride through a park, get tickets to a party boat and go dancing, do a search on the internet for your area and look for "events&quot. You might find something relatively close that you would never consider doing, but would be special for a one time deal with a friend. Take a look in areas near where you live too in case you are in a burg (like me) and nothing ever happens there. Even a hayride can be fun as a surprise adventure. (01/03/2011)

If you live near a college or university, see if they have a theatre or dance department. We live near Kenyon College and we get to go see shows for just a buck or two. I have always had success with romantic picnics; cubed cheese and turkey or salami, crackers, olives, pickles, grapes, cookies and sparkling grape juice or soda. Throw a blanket or sheet down on the floor, light some candles, put on some low key music and have a lovely date. My husband remembers a picnic we shared while dating 20 years ago. ;) Best wishes!

What is his hobby? Men thrive on feeling appreciated for what they do. No dollar value on that as you just say it and show it (hugs, etc.).
What I did, was make my husband an award online, you know the kind of award "The greatest..." and then I bought a picture frame for it. I also gave mine a framed picture of me that he could leave on his desk at work.

Bake cookies. Make them fancy. Just because he can afford to give expensive gifts does not mean you have to reciprocate in kind. (01/06/2011)

Can you sing? I saw an idea on a wedding show that would be really cool for you to do for him for his birthday. The wife to be, "or girlfriend in your case" went to a local recording studio (a good microphone on the computer with a recording program will do the trick, less than $75). The girl sang a wonderful love song for him and played it for him at their reception (maybe a party for him).

I wouldn't think that with a boyfriend of 7 months when you are 17 years old, that it should be a really serious love song. Maybe it could just be a song that you write for yourself to sing to a well known musical tune about how sweet and nice he is. That would work. Don't forget to sing him a Happy Birthday in the song as well. Then you can burn some of your favorite songs together onto the same CD and give him the CD wrapped in a jewel tone case and wrapped with a ribbon. Let me know if this helps. It is original and from the heart for sure! (01/08/2011)
