Homemade Christmas Gift for Long Term Boyfriend

I need help coming up with a creative, personal gift for my boyfriend. We've been together for three years, have always spent a lot of money on gifts, but now I have run out of ideas, because he says he doesn't need anything. I want to make him something he'll love and always remember or have.


I got him a bracelet with our anniversary on it which he loved and wears every day, as well as a list of 100 reasons why I love him. He's not big on sports or a particular band or anything, just loves going to the gym, spends a lot of time in school, and working. He really deserves a special gift this year, any ideas?

I am thinking of a cute homemade (I don't mind spending money to make the homemade gift though) gift in addition to a new bottle of cologne or something. He's 20, very smart, and loves spending time with me. We already went on a two day trip though, for his last birthday. Thank you.

How about filling a stocking with small gifts, plus chocolate, gum, whatever? (12/18/2009)

How about a collage of photos of the two of you or the places that mean a lot to you: where you met, your first date, etc.? Journaling your heart-felt thoughts about him (he sounds like such a great guy!) will mean so much to him.
God bless! (12/18/2009)

Who was it that said give him a marriage license? I agree! However, I have another idea, as well. Could he use a new gym bag? Perhaps you could buy or make one. Fill it with his fave body wash, new gym clothes, and socks, a new towel, all the things he'd need at the gym. Use his fave color. He'll smile every time he goes to the gym, and not because of the great workout!

I used to lift weights for years and still have my first pair of workout gloves. How about having his first or favorite worn out pair framed and purchase him a new pair to wear out. Sort of like the first pair of worn out ballet slippers idea that ballet dancers do ;-) (12/20/2009)

Thanks so much everyone! I ended up getting him a new Coach wallet (he's needed a new wallet for two years and always comments on how its amazing my Coach wallet has lasted me five years and stayed in good condition) and then I used the picture collage idea, writing about all our favorite moments together and things that I know he loves, like krav, his favorite food, our favorite places and trips, etc! and the things I love about him, and all the things I appreciate that he does for me!

And haahah to the marriage license, I agree, but we're both still going to be in college for a few years so we're going to have to wait a while. (01/03/2010)

Homemade Christmas Gift for Long Term Boyfriend

Well my boyfriend and I just passed our one year anniversary. I still remembered where our first date was, so I went to the restaurant and asked them if I could have a menu (once I explained why I needed one they freely handed it over). And I glued a collage of pictures, movie tickets, and all kinds of mementos of things we had enjoyed together to the inside of the menu. Then I took a glass jar with a air tight lid (you can get these at arts and craft stores) and cut out hundreds of white and yellow hearts (yellow is his favorite color) and each one had a reason why I loved him. I stuffed all of those, with poker chips (he's an avid card player) into the jar. He loved it! and it only cost 5$ (03/15/2010)
