Creative Valentine's Day Gifts for Your Boyfriend
Creative gift giving can make a special holiday that much more personal and unique. Valentine's Day is one of the best holidays for a creative present. It expresses your love more uniquely than run-of-the-mill store-bought presents. That's not to say you can't find a nice present for your boyfriend going that route but individualizing it with a little creativity is a great idea.
A heart-shaped box full of mementos is one creative way to show your boyfriend just how much your time together has meant to you. Collect photographs, love notes, poems, little stories about the firsts in your relationship, ticket stubs from movies or concerts you went to together, and a CD or two featuring some important music to the two of you. Place all of these items in the box, and tie it together with a red, white or pink string.
A scrapbook will also offer a special way to show your creativity as well as your affection for your boyfriend. Collect photographs and other memorabilia, and write down corresponding messages and memories next to each item in the scrapbook. Include some things you were thinking that day that you never shared with him. Or remind him of a conversation the two of you had at a special event. RedEnvelope carries an item called Story of a Lifetime, which would be a good gift to give in tandem with a scrapbook. It is a journal with prompts and questions that will give your boyfriend the chance to record his own memories of important dates and moments.
Cookies and cakes are a popular gift on Valentine's Day, and they can be easily personalized. Use icing to write love messages, inside jokes, favorite sayings, and special dates such as your anniversary or your first kiss. This makes for a nice present if you're on a budget, or works well as a supplementary gift if you're looking for something personal to give in addition to a more standard present.
