hello fellow waiting bees….
i want to do something really sweet for my boyfriend…trying to get some ideas.
Ive been super stressed out lately and i know this weekend wasnt easy on him. He travels during the week, has to drive back and forth from work to our house…sometimes 3.5 hours away on fridays and back on Sundays.
we just got back from Napa and i was thinking about doing something wine related….i found a bottle of silver oak from 2008….a vineyard we just went to.
I could try and order this next to impossible to find bottle of bourbon he loves (friend suggested it)
I just want to do something really sweet to let him know that i really appreciate him.

I think the wine and a love note sounds perfect 🙂

Wine sounds nice, but most guys I know would appreciate a blow job! Just a suggestion!

nolapeanut: sometimes il just pick up his favorite cake for no reason or il swing by and get that shirt he was eyeing a few weeks ago.
The wine sounds really nice – maybe you could have a living room picnic next time he comes? Grab all his fav food and snacks and pop pn a nice movie – or get crazy and do it outside! Under the stars!

Hahahaha, love the BJ suggestions.
But to throw other things out there… is there anything else that he often is interested in doing (non-sexually) that you don’t want to do? For me, it’s going to the movies. SO loves it, I usually don’t have any interest in seeing anything, so we don’t go. If I told him, “SURPRISE! We’re going to a movie tonight!” he would just love it. So if there’s some equivalent thing in your relationship, I bet it’d make him happy.

nolapeanut: pour him a nice glass of wine to drink while you give him a blowjob?

babeba: That’s what I was going to say. Or the bourbon, if he’s more of a bourbon man.
Or, OP, a gift certificate for a massage? That would help him de-stress.

I think it really depends on your boyfriend’s tastes. PPs suggested that you do something for him that he loves but you dislike, which is an idea that I like. DBF’s birthday is this weekend, and unlike you, OP, I can’t give him wine (we live in the United States, I’m 20, and he’s turning 19). And even if I could legally buy alcohol, chances are that he wouldn’t drink it.
Personally, I’d do some brainstorming and see if there’s any snack with a flavor that he loves. If it’s a flavor that is harder to find in stores, that’d be even better. I just ran out to a nearby store to buy DBF’s favorite flavor of Wheat Thins. While it’s inexpensive, it really shows that I had his preferences in mind, which is a big part of what makes our relationship special. 🙂

How about booking a weekend away as a surprise? groupon, living social, etc have great deal. Maybe a weekend away to a romantic b&b. gives him time to relax and for the two of you to spend some time together.

If you want something extra special that shows you put a lot of time into it, cook him a really fancy meal or dessert that you know he’d love, give him the bottle of wine to drink with dinner, rent a movie he’s been wanting to see (that maybe you’re not super excited about, but you know he’ll love it), give him a massage, etc. If you want to go more of a physical gift-giving route, buy him a book you know he’d like (even if he’s never heard of it before, make sure it’s his taste!), get him something you’ve noticed he needs (new headphones? speakers? wine glasses? wine aerator? whatever you think he would like and need!)… You said he travels a LOT during the week, maybe get him a book on tape that he could listen to in the car? A new CD? Podcasts? Make a mix of music that has meaning to you two? Or, perhaps he needs new car seat covers, or sunglasses to help with the commute? I’m sure you can come up with something to make him feel special!
