This is such a great thread!! Ive been thinking of different things to make my boyfriend for his birthday in june and our 1 year in july...im pretty set on silkscreening him a tshirt with hank williams and sewing him pj pants or shorts with elvis fabric!! and im making him a bloddy chainsaw cake b.c he loves the texas chainsaw massacre...all for his birthday.
for our anniversary since we live kind of far apart, an hour..we only see each other on the weekends, im going to make each of us little zombie dolls of each other, hed get me and id get him, ya know? and im thinking of embroidering him some pillowcases, although i have no idea how to emboider!! Heh! Ill have to figure that out first!those are my thoughts right now anyways...
I wanted to tell everyone the stuff ive made in the past for boyfriends to help anyone out whose stuck for an idea....
besides the fact that Ive painted all my ex's stuff, ive made other things..
once I got one of those little wooden boxes from michaels, painted it all nice and i got a bag wooden hearts, i dont remember how many but there were an assload!! I painted the box all purdy and the hearts read and on each heart I wrote "I Love You" in a different language and on the inside of the lid of the box I wrote "theres only one way I know how to say it, I love you"...get it...nerdy
another time I dated this guy who whenever i drove to see him id see shooting stars so i filled a glass jar full of little wooden stars that i spray painted them silver and one of them i made sure was on the edge so you can see it i wrote..."your my wish come true"...or something, i dont remember exactly, heh!
i also bought a fish bowl and a real fish and filled the bottom with those glass marbles (fish tank gravel is a bitch to clean) and a plant and then i found paper thats used for scrap books that looked kind of like water and with blue letter stickers i wrote "youre the only fish in my sea" and glued it to the back of the bowl so you could see it when looking at the fish
And for my current boyfriend for christmas i gave him an engraved ring and painted a wooden box to put it in red with black designs and on the lid was this heart/infinity knot thing
i hope those help someone!
