Christmas Gift for Boyfriend Who Likes to Build Things

My boyfriend and I have been doing a long distance relationship for about 4 months, he lives in CA and I live in GA. I've thought of a few things to get him or make him, but I'm trying to think of something he won't expect. I want something really different.

He loves to build stuff, so I was trying to play off of that somehow. I'm not trying to be picky, but we're very insync with each other so I don't want him to be able to guess.

How about a gift card to Lowes or Home Depot?

I don't know what your boyfriend likes to build, but my husband always liked to get different types of wood clamps, C-clamps, etc., in various sizes for his wood projects. Home Depot or Lowe's or some such store should be able to advise you. Merry Christmas!

Legos, Legos, Legos! I know, but they are not just for kids. Adults can play too. You can get them like a kit to build a certin thing like houses or whatever. I have done this for a family member who is an engineer. And if he shakes box it sounds like somthing broken, but he won't be able to guess.

I second the Lego idea. My brother got me the Green Grocer Lego set for my birthday last year. My husband and I put it together watching TV in the evenings for at least a week. I was able to tell my boys it was off limit because of the 16+ age on the box. The finished project is so detailed and beautiful. Although, this set is expensive, there are lots of other smaller sets or vehicles and buildings.

What about one of those 3-d puzzles? They are pretty intricate and are in the shapes of castles and different buildings.
