…is coming up in only a week and a half! Part of me is really hoping for a proposal, but the other part is trying to talk the first half down, so I don’t get disappointed if it doesn’t happen.
In any case, I’m having a hard time figuring out what to get my sweet man for our 2 years! We’re going out to dinner, and I’ve decided to make a sexy dress, (just started thinking about that yesterday…found a pattern, but I really need to get my ass in gear to get that puppy sewn!) but I want to get him a special gift, too.
He’s an avid video gamer, a fan of beer, loves snowboarding and kayaking/canoeing and doesn’t really care for sweets. I have some random things saved to my Amazon.com shopping list that I think he’d like (more novelty kitsch stuff than anything) but I’m having trouble thinking of something really special that he’d love.
Any ideas? Hoping to keep it under $100.
ETA: I really did format this into nice paragraphs with space in between them, but WB keeps smushing them together (and I’m posting from a computer, not a phone! Argh!)

Your dating anniversary isn’t too far off of ours 😀 Same about semi hoping for a proposal ^^;
The dress sounds awesome! For another gift, is there a game coming out soon that he might like that you could get a limited edition of? (Bioshock infinite is out very soon – does he like the Bioshock series?) Or the limited edition of an already released game that he doesn’t have? Merchandise for a favourite game/film/series might also be something to think about.
Could getting equipment for his sports things be an option, or an exclusive type of beer you could get a bottle of?
Sorry it’s still kind of vague but hopefully slightly inspiring, good luck finding something 🙂

@MaidMarian: Yay for close dating anniversaries! Ours is April Fools Day (April 1st), which I think is pretty funny. It was a blind date, too, and he was late for it…while I was waiting I thought it might be funny if I stood him up because of was April Fools, but I’m sure glad I didn’t!
Thanks for the ideas! It’s hard to give ideas when you don’t know the person, but you’ve given me some things to roll around in my head…

My bf & I just celebrated our 2 year last October. He knew I was tight on cash but I saved up to get him a new pair of snowboard boots & a DC jacket he’s been wanting. I was stalking for a sale on his DC boots and jacket. Plus I had a coupon so I was able to save a good chunk of money and not blow out my account lol.
Good luck finding something! I’m sure he will love whatever you get 🙂

Get him a Hydroflask growler! Hydroflask is an outdoor water bottle company based in Bend, OR. A girlfriend gave me one and no joke it kept ice cubes for two days. Seriously rad bottles. And now they make growlers for beer! If he likes beer and is an outdoor guy (which it sounds like he is- kayaking and snowboarding and all) he’ll love it. They have custom ones for our local brewery and sell standard ones on their website.
Congrats and have fun! 2 years!

@RonTon: Thank you! 🙂
And ooo…those look pretty cool! He might think I’m nuts for spending $45 on, essentially, a water bottle, though.
That being said, I kind of want one. LOL

So, I ended up getting him tickets to see a musician he likes…Stephen Kellogg.
And he ended up getting me a DIAMOND RING! 😀
