Hey, I'm actually in a very similar situation, except my bf is leaving a year from now. His birthday is coming up on April 1 and I am trying to be really creative. Before I decided that I was going to be creative with this one, I almost went out and got him an IPOD for when he goes to Iraq, but then I thought...nah...I'll get him one later. I want to do something special and creative.
So...I guess that's two people that need help on this one.
