Okay, so here's the scoop. Got a new boy. He's not *quite* my boyfriend yet, but it's definitely headed down that road. We're just taking things slow so as not to mess up.

His birthday is July 21- I'm giving myself plenty of time to figure out something awesome. He's definitely into home-made-with-love kinda stuff, so I want that to be the bulk of it.

Okay, my boy -
- Will be 31.
- Shaves his head
- 10 tattoos
- Home brews beer
- reads a ton
- is a geek
- likes metal and indie rock
- has a pug named Sweetpea (how adorable is that!?)
- Our first "date" was to hang out and shoot pool
- Our second was a picnic in the park

Ideas fo far -
- I promised to knit him a hat. I really want to knit him one of the R2D2 beanies from the pattern on here but I'm scared of color working. Maybe I'll just knit him a simple beanie in some really nice yarn.
- Picture frame w/ beer caps - I know a bartender who can probably get me tons.
- something for Sweetpea. Maybe a new collar or lead and tags. Or a doggie sweater to match Daddy's hat.
- the new Harry Potter comes out ON his birthday. If I can manage to get it, i'll get that - plus a bookmark and decorative bookplate.

Any other suggestions?

I want to knock his socks off! (Maybe I should knit socks too... Hmm)

You could make him personalized labels for his "brew".

Maybe you could find home brew recipes and make him a personalized recipe book.

It's probably too late to do this unless your nursery had one started, but maybe a pot with some hops growing in it? I think maybe they are a shrub ...

Just a suggestion for the HP book.... I know that this place is literally the lair of Satan himself, but i'm telling you... Walmart... You can go in at any hour and wait for it, and oftentimes they'll put them out early, b/c their lazy and don't give a crap.... I hate that place for everything it stands for, but if it's for Harry Potter.... well.... I just have to make an exception, you know?
