This site has some cool ideas!  I personally love the coozies and coasters.

It’s the perfect time of year for a calendar! I love to scrapbook and I have made my husband two calendars in the past.  They always turn out really well.  If you don’t have as much time, you can just make the pages simple.  I tend to spend FOREVER on mine, but I really enjoy working on stuff like that.  Also, you could go to one of the photo sites and design a calendar using your pictures and their layouts.

What about going to a paint your own pottery place and painting a cake plate with a little message for him on it, then baking his birthday cake?

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: sooo cute!! I might steal that someday!!

I’m going to make Fiance a book for Christmas by going to amazon.com and ordering a blank picture book and writing/illustrating a story based on our inside jokes. He will probably think it is stupid, but secretly love it. You could do ‘the story of us!’.

Hi! I’m an artist based in Boston, MA. Wanted to share an artistic endeavor with you that I call “Mapuccino”. These are poster-sized digital prints that at first glance resemble subway maps. But if you look closely, the stops are personalized to capture different moments in your life. You choose the marker locations and names, I do the rest! If you’re interested, you can find out more about them here: http://www.mapuccino.com/. They’re a one-of-a-kind romantic gift!

I made a wall hanging of one of DH’s favorite locations…. It was mostly a bunch of large shapes so I kinda just traced the photograph outlining every line that would need to be sewed down, assigned the colours, blew up the sketch to the size I wanted, bought the fabric and then put it all together… then embroidered little details like a fence and tufts of grass and whatnot.  Was my 2nd wall hanging and I was quite pleased with it in the end!
