My boyfriend and a couple of his friends are getting an apartment pretty soon, and I would really like to get them something. I'm thinking of putting a binder together with some 'bachelor' recipes, cleaning tips, etc etc.. But what else could I do? New Apartment in a Box, anyone? Help me help these boys for when I'm not there to help them in person. Tongue

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

What about a box of cleaning supplies and a binder compilation of coupons and menus for the local take out and fast food restaurants?

Or a box of pantry goods to start the food supply off - some fun stuff like their favourite candies and junk foods, as well as real staples like spices, oil, pasta, rice, etc.

Are they set up for tools - a home repair kit is always a good thing - a simple set of screw drivers, wrenches, picture hanging set, hammer, drill, duct tape.

They're pretty hopeless so far as supplies go; I think they intend to buy it as they need it which is a pretty silly plan. >.>; Thanks for the suggestions; they're awesome!

Add local take out to the binder is a good idea I remember when my bother was moving out my mom when around to all his fav. local places getting the menu and a gift card with $10.00 on it from each place so she knew he was eating. You waould have to know my stupid bother he would spend the money on his car instead of eating. But he loved the menus so he could place a quick all in and be done wiht dinner

I gave my boyfriend a memory board made of beer bottle caps.
Pro: Its totally simple. Glue them on a thin wooden board and add some diy-magnets.
Con: You need a lot of them. Try to collect enough at a party.
