"I decided to cook my boyfriend his favorite dinner for his birthday.
We had a nice quiet meal and he was completely surprised!
Afterwards he told me he had a great time and it was the best present he ever got because it showed that I knew what he liked.
It was a great night." – Alyssa, 15"One time I made my bf a picture frame, decorated it, and put one of our pics in it.
Along these lines, be sure to consult our I'm Sorry Table if you forgot your anniversary or were late in remembering it.
A trendy watch or thoughtful jewelry (keep it simple, nothing too expensive or sentimental), dinner at upscale restaurant, or a fancy home cooked meal.
It was beyond perfect." – Catie, 19"The best present I ever got my boyfriend was a camping set.
It included a tent, mattress, lamp and sleeping bags.
You can be spontaneous and thoughtful without having to spend a fortune.
Whether you're choosing to celebrate your one month or one year, these gifts have got you covered.
You just started dating him so I wouldn't embarrass him with an expensive gift - what if he only had an inexpensive gift for you? How about tickets for the two of you to go to a Christmas concert with dinner beforehand? If you are a starving college student, take some of your beer money & go spend on ingredients and prepare a nice home/apt cooked meal for the two of you - don't put a bow on the Chicken Marsalla though... I want to buy a fun gift that's appropriate and personal, but am on a limited budget.
