But just because you aren't comfortable manscaping him (…yet), doesn't mean you have to get him something lame for Valentine's Day. It's also a subtle way to clear out his souvenir shot glass cabinet for some whiskey and bitters. At a play, you can connect over how much you appreciate the arts — a little bit of post-show dramatic criticism is basically mental foreplay. OK, so maybe elaborate mixology isn't his — or more importantly, — thing. He probably jots his thoughts down on whatever's handy, like in his phone in a million files in his notes app. Sometimes giving a guy winter gear can look a bit grandma-ish, but grandma can't text, can she? Like, a hardcore, take-no-prisoners, I-forgot-to-eat-because-I-was-gaming gamer? If you're a gamer too, you can join in, and if you're not, he'll appreciate that you're supportive of his hobby. Instead, get a gift card that approximately amounts to seeing a set number of movies together. And no, you cannot just get him a box of boring chocolates. has some great cocktails that aren't impossible to make. And if you like sports, nothing brings two people closer together quite like cheering in the bleachers in the freezing cold while chugging down overpriced beer. Then there is nothing cooler than BYOB, or Brewing Your Own Beer. If you're unfamiliar with the world of board games beyond Monopoly, Settlers of Catan is a great place to start — just don't forget to put away all of the little pieces before you have sex on the table after you win. He'll love when he writes his ideas in that sweet Moleskine pad or unique leather notebook — and it's way, way classier. (Or maybe yours can, in which case, props to your grandma.) Texting glove are super functional and super stylish. And when he's gaming, it's a great excuse for you to catch up on 9.
Look for a mug that's specific to the person you're dating — i.e.: a mug that says, "I'm The Top Bitch In Cat Town," may not bode well for a dude. He told you when you first started messaging online that he music, but you noticed that he's still using the crappy headphones that came with his phone.
OK, maybe nobody says that, but a quirky mug that can give a coffee drinker a chuckle in the morning is a pretty good (and not crazy-expensive) gift.
The boyfriend and I have a 2 year anniversary right around the corner, any suggestions for something to do?
Last year we had couples massages sauna, and went out to a nice dinner, and got each other very nice gifts.
Have you ever been just a couple days away from your wedding anniversary and trying to figure out what meaningful gift you can get…inexpensively? But have no fear, you (and I) never have to go through that again. Feel free to borrow these ideas and make them your own. Then I took a piece of paper and “aged” it with coffee and tea grounds.
Yesterday, we posed a simple question to Happy Wives Club members on our Facebook Community page: What is the most creative anniversary gift you (and/or your husband) has ever given for less than ? When it dried, I printed a poem I wrote on it, burned the edges to make it look OLD, rolled it up, tied it with a red ribbon, and put it in the bottle.No matter how much we depend on technology, nothing will ever beat an old-fashioned love note — they're the ultimate in Brownie Points.(Kind Notes, prices vary) If your partner's Instagram is as active as a celebrity's, he'll love this vintage camera i Phone case., you thought, imagining the two of you exploring the hot and steamy worlds of the deep-fried sage magic or simply an amped-up pasta dish with chicken. Give him your favorite book, or one that you could read together and then talk about it. For our first anniversary (which is traditionally the paper anniversary), I took sand from Lake Michigan (where my husband was born) and put it in an old bottle with a stopper top.
