1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gamer Boyfriend Gift/Vday Idea Help on: January 01, 2010 09:27:02 PM
-What's the occasion?  Vday &/or Anniversary

-Relationship to you - boyfriend- been together 5 1/2 years [6 years in june]

-Age - 19, sophomore in college & serious videogamer & techie

-Hobbies/Interests - the color navy blue, WWII, the beatles, electronics, star wars, linkin park, sushi, history (is going to become a hs history teacher), airplanes [wanted to fly in the navy at one time], house m.d., glee, metal gear solid, jay & silent bob, dane cook, pokemon & oldschool games like frogger & spyro, fixing/building computers, Call of Duty, video games, CNN, hoodies are an outfit staple, hot fuzz [simon pegg & nick frost are our faves], chess

-Doesn't regularly: wear hats/beanies/any winter accessories, read

-Previous gifts - scrapbook, 100 reasons why i love you, homemade cards, plush walrus, knitted scarf, dessert sushi, drawn caricatures, making each other dinner, flying lessons, picture compilation of us over the years, loveopoly [a customized monopoly board], & more i can't really remember...

-I Can: cook/bake well, beginner knit/sew, get to a craft store asap if necessary Grin


My problem is that I feel that i have done all of the generic crafts/projects for boyfriends & really want something different that he will LOVE. also, something functional that isn't a waste. there's nothing worse to me than giving/making him something & having it sit on his shelf =[

I was thinking of making this vday 'call of duty' themed, with maybe screen printing something with his ps username on it (i think a shirt is too much but can't seem to think of anything else to print it on), buying this awesome grenade shaped soap i found on etsy, & making the 52 reasons why i love you card book, but my mind stops there=[

**ANY & all ideas for both vday & our upcoming anniversary based on all his info would be greatly appreciated! even just a point in the right direction  Cheesy
