You're nicer than I am. That would only motivate me to do more things like this.

What I found as an easy Christmas gift for my boyfriend last year was to make him a scarf. Basic ones are really, really simple to learn to make, and there are excellent websites that can get you up and going in no time. And I've never seen anyone get a handmade scarf and not love it. My boyfriend loved it so much that he wore it at home all the time. He's even requested another one for next Christmas (*cough* ..spoiled.. *cough*).

Once, I made him a few paper cranes just because I was going through a little origami-phase. He loved those so much that he hung them from his ceiling via dental floss. Since he moved, he's lacking paper cranes hovering about his bed, so I'm attempting to make a mobile-like monstrosity of beaded strings connecting the birds.

And top priority at the moment is making him a care package for when he gets his wisdom teeth taken out this week. Ie pill box for his pain killers with notes hidden within, a dental mirror so he can look at his teeth one last time before they're ripped from him, a hot water bottle, and silly things I know he'll appreciate.


The key is, know your boyfriend. He'll love whatever you give him and put time into. Adding little things that are between you both will make gifts most-special.

One idea that I had as a boyfriend gift that I never actually did do was to get him a pair or pants and screenprint me winking at him or making some kind of nerdy flirty face ON THE INSIDE of the pants, like near the fly. lol. Then I figured his mom would wonder when doing the laundry... I did once make him a photo album (which has kinda fallen apart by now, i don't know anything about book binding) with a painting of us on the back and a framed picture of us on the front so he could prop it up on his dresser. This year, I'm gunna go with a buttload of stenciled shirts, as well as my version of that awesome army man table that won the Dollar store challenge! Thank you for the ideas craftster!

the pants idea is amazing!  another idea--make a stuffed animal/doll of your as your nickname, and spray it with his favorite perfume of yours.  it's especially good if you have stupid nicknames (i.e. scuddlebucket)
