My boyfriends birthday is in about a week, and I was trying to figure out how to get him something. I don't have a job, but my mom offered me work to do in our house, (Painting, remodeling.. etc) Getting $10 an hour. So I'll work for about 8 hours. He loves REI, so I was thinking of getting him a gift certicate or something there, taking him out to dinner (And letting him have ice-cream for dessert since he loves it so much, but can't have dairy, and doesn't really get it that often since I don't let him ), and going to a movie. All paid by me, since we never have money to do a whole lot.
Quitters always lose, and winners never give up.
That sounds great to me, it sounds like it would be a great treat to go to a dinner and movie if it is something the two of you don't get to do that often. This too is just a thought, are there any types of amusement parks around where you're at?
I do have a question tho, why can't he have dairy products? Is it that he can't because of a medical reason or do you just not want him too?
I think he would really enjoy that. You could aslo make it unique and special. My boyfriend (husband now) knows I love chocolate. For my 18th, I asked him to make me a chocolate cake...that is all I wanted. He didn't have a cake pan so bought me chocolate ice cream and made me chocolate covered strawberries which he fed to me with whipped cream. I have recieved a lot of very expensive gifts in my life, but that one birthday I remember the most. Thoughts count.
