I've been with my bf for 4 months (this Wed.) and he's leaving for Maui to see his dad for six weeks. I'd like to give him something to send him off. I still have a couple of weeks to come up with something before he leaves, but I'm a little leery about the whole thing. I want to give him something sweet, but I don't want him to think I've been toiling over it for weeks (that might royally creep him out). Do you think a beachy minishrine might work? I have this little seahorse charm he found & gave to me that might be a nice addition if I did that. Otherwise I'm completely stumped.
As for past presents, for his birthday (since I was flat broke and grasping at straws) I cooked him a spaghetti dinner. We were so *ahem* preoccupied
in the next room while the sauce was cooking that it boiled over and splashed tomato sauce everywhere!
obviously there were 'saucier' things on offer than the tomato sauce
i think the beachy minishrine just might work yes
something he can take with him, put in his pocket.. an other idea maybe, would he wear a simple string bracelet or choker/necklace with the seahorse charm on? maybe you could make a card with the charm necklace/bracelet/something on it and maybe a pic of the two of you on the inside and a little written note he can take with him? sorry i'm not much help!
it's my boy's birthday in a few weeks, and our 'official' 1 year the week before.. He is forever losing his plectrums, they keep falling out of his pocket and he's too stubborn to keep them in his wallet. So i thought, what about a cuff or something with a little pocket he can put them in, so they're at hand easily? Any other ideas?
