Hmm, this isn’t a Christmas gift, this was for a birthday..

For his 24th birthday, we made plans to go to a local seafood restaurant.  Nothing fancy, no reservations or anything.  He had to work all day, and said that all he wanted was to walk in the door and have someone hand him a beer, immediately. LOL. I called ahead to the restaurant and had them arrange a table outside for us, complete with pre-ordering a few appetizers, and a few beers already out for him.

It was nothing special at all, but he LOVED it.  He appreciated the fact that I remembered a request that was so small.

For our first Christmas I was stone cold broke so I bought a picnic basket at a discount store (it was cute but cheap!), I made him a CD of songs and I bought a  DVD of Elf.  The biggest score/sentimental part was that I went back to where we’d had our first date the September  before and went through their records to figure out what type of wine we had and bought a bottle from them for the picnic basket.  That was Christmas 2006 – I hope the wine ages well because we still haven’t opened it!

What a sweet gift! You did a great job!

Although my gift can’t necessarly be replicated unless a specific situation; but when we were in college, my husband (then bf) worked retail and had to work X-mas eve & the day after X-mas; so needless to stay he had to stay in town while all his friends and I all went home for the holidays. I felt so bad for him being all alone of Christmas πŸ™ so I got a HUGE box (that he wasn’t to open until Christmas day, and put in dvds, crossword puzzles, christmas cookies, beer, his favorite candy, and a bunch of other goodies and had a giant sign as soon as he opened the box where I wrote  “Christmas Survival Kit.”  He called me immediately and was almost crying because He LOVED it so much! πŸ™‚  

One thing I would recommed for you, is to do an “activity gift” vs and actual gift. My husband and I do this quite a bit vs. giving hard gifts. Our gifts are typically tixs to a concert, game, or comedian he would love. We have also done little day/weekend trips as a gift, and plan the whole thing from begining to end. I think gifts like this are so meaningful b/c you get to spend them together & its all about what your SO loves πŸ™‚

Last Christmas, my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were on different continents.  I lived in Japan at the time, but I actually went to India for the holiday.  While there, I found the cutest painting of two elephants twining their trunks together and looking adorable.  I got it in Udaipur, which is famous for its miniature paintings.  It’s painted on camel bone.  I mailed it to him with a long letter telling him how much I wished he could be there with me and telling him about all the amazing adventures around the world we’re going to have together one day.  He has the photo on his desk, right in front of the window, and when the sun comes through, it lights up the painting.  It’s really pretty.
