Okaaay!!! I always give my bf creative gifts! We've been dating for 5 years and I'm almost braindead when it comes for new Ideas!  This is what I remember giving him (hope you can use it for ideas)

A wall clock with 12 pictures of us, each picture was one number!
a plushie of his favorite soccer team mascot
loaaaaaaads of stenciled t shirts (the hangover baby, a scarface one, like 10 with his fave bands)
a paper mache "sculpture"
a drawing of us together
a knitted hat
a knitted sweater
a stenciled sweatshirt (with our favourite music band)
a tennis court quilt
a framed picture of me when I was a kid (he always loved that pic, so i made him a copy)
If I remember more, I'll post them

Sooo this christmas I'm more braindead than ever!!! He requested another t shirt, but giving him only a tshirt would feel like giving him a "worth for a hug" card!  Plus... I've got like a $10 budget!!!! 

About him: he's a sportsman, he loves tennis and soccer, actually he is a tennis coach and plays soccer at least once a week, he loves me to give him handmade stuff (he prefers handmade to storebought), he loves comedy movies and cartoon movies, he has always loved german shepherds (actually he has one, who lives at his parents house), he loves rock music, lives in a tiny appartment and loves blue and red.

I live in mexico, I can send loads of mexican stuff ...I'd swap for crafting supplies and scrapbooking supplies (PM if interested)

If you draw well, could you do a portrait of his German Shepherd?

Or if he doesnt already have one, a scarf in the colours of his soccer team?

I recently have made my boyfriend a few things...I think I may be going over board since we have only been seeing each other for about 7 months (technically 4 months official).
He loves Star Wars, Minecraft,

I also have bought him-

The eyeglasses actually for a steal price work really well, he never had any glasses before and refused to pay even $50 for them.

If he's a sports fan, make him pajamas using his favorite team's colors.
My bf is a New Orleans Saints fan so I made him a pair of pj pants that were black with gold pinstripes.

If he likes for his personal space to look stylish, make him a throw pillow. If you don't want to stuff one yourself, pillow forms are your best friend.
I found this really nice black silk brocade with gold Asian dragons on it that I used to make a fancy throw pillow. I also put tassels on the corners and an invisible zipper on one side so that the case can be removed for cleaning and the pillow can be replaced if it gets lumpy.

This Christmas, I gave my boyfriend of three years a work-weeks worth of hand knit socks. I'd given him some for his birthday and after I got back from a monthlong trip abroad. And another pair for this Valentine's day. So he has a week +1 pairs of socks, and he loves them. He gushes about them, saying things like "I'm so glad I don't have to wear store bought socks anymore!"

I wish I could knit socks (or crochet them) so I could make my bf some :3

I started dating my now husband a month before his birthday. I had no idea what to get for him, I didn't want anything too sentimental since we'd only been together a month, but I wanted something that showed a little thought. In the end, I went kind of simple and made him a birthday cake and a few handmade chocolates. Can't go too wrong with food.

For our first Christmas, I etched some whiskey glasses and champagne flutes with a few designs. I'd never done it before so I just used a kit I picked up from Michaels, but it was a real hit. I find useful items that can be personalised a little bit the best way to go with guys.
