Hi. So, October is a pretty busy month for me, in terms of birthdays. I know, I know, it's a couple months away, but I really want to do something special for all of them, and I want to make sure I've got enough time to do so.
First, there's my boyfriend's on October 3rd.
He's the sweetest most amazing guy in the entire world. (Okay, I'm sure most girl's think that about their guy, but he really is, I swear
) And he's kind of a goofball, but he's a cute, sweet, romantic goofball. We've been together since April.
His favorite color is blue. He's really tall and skinny. He doesn't wear jewelry. And his favorite kind of flowers are roses.
He likes music. He's almost always listening to his ipod unless he's talking to somebody. He mostly likes rock, j-rock, and some R&B-ish stuff.
He's always carrying around a hacky sack, but I'd rather not get him a hacky sack, seeing as the one he uses now is the one I made him.
He's definitely an anime nerd. I'd list his favorites, but he's got about a billion.
He spends a loooot of time at the arcade playing DDR. He's amazing at it, but I can't really think of a whole lot of DDR related things to give him.
He likes videogames, but I'm not really sure which ones he plays. I know he likes Halo and other shoot shoot kill kill kinda games.
He likes drawing, and he's kind of teaching himself to play the guitar, but I don't know how serious he is about it.
The only thing I've made him in the past is a couple of hacky sacks, so I don't think I want to do any kind of hugely elaborate mushy gift. I want to ease him into the whole crafted gift thing.
Next is my best friend, on October 18.
She's the sweetest girl I know.
She's very stylish and pretty trendy. Very Christian. Very girly. Likes driving a whole lot. Likes photography. Plays softball. Likes pretty much any kind of music.
She'll be turning 17. Not really sure what other info to give about her. Last year for her birthday, I crocheted her a blanket and matching scarf.
Next is my brother on October 21.
We don't always get along the greatest, but he's a really awesome guy.
Very into music. Especially the kinda indie/unknown stuff.
Likes anime quite a bit.
Likes computers. Especially his laptop.
He's leaving for college at the end of the summer, so this may have to be something I can send to him. Or else wait to give it to him until the next time I'd see him (probably Thanksgiving or Christmas)
Last, but definitely not least, my mom on November 1st (ok, not October, but close enough)
She's the most amazing woman I know. She's my hero.
She's super crafty. She's always doing things for other people, and not nearly enough for herself.
She's not very girly. Her favorite color is red. She's lost a lot of weight in the last year or so, and I'd kind of like to maybe give her some new clothes, since she's still wearing the same big ol' t-shirts she used to wear. But she's not really the type to wear any kind of clothes that aren't old and worn. I think they make her feel like she can't play around because she doesn't want to get them dirty. I'm thinking I might have part of her gift be a gift card for a clothing store or something? I'm not really sure though.
Any suggestions would be absolutely amazing. Thanks. And my apologies for such a loooong post.
