    One Year Anniversary with boyfriend. Need Help!

    Started · Last post · Displaying all 10 Post
    My one year anniversary with my boyfriend is coming up in two months. I want to make his gift now, so I don't have to worry about it later. I need some new creative ideas! I've already looked at the gifts on the projects already and I decided to make the Vintage Spool Valentine but I want more ideas than Box of Love for your Love and the canned compliments. Any ideas?

    What sort of things does he like? It's kinda hard to gauge what to make for someone without knowing their interests.

    Well I made mine some coupons, such as 'Good for one massage', 'Good for your fav dessert' and also a little movie with pics of us...

    Here are some of the anniversary gifts I have made my boyfriend, now hubby. The last one if the most recent. Maybe these will spark some ideas. Good luck!

    I've made lots of things for my fiance that you could use as inspiration:

    You can paint him a custom shirt! My fiance has always wanted a WoW shirt, so I made him one:

    Or you could make something cute out of felt like my Felt Something:

    Or you could make a book out of cards with 52 reasons why you love him:

    I hope this helps =]

    I've not made/given anything for my anniversaries with my fiancé, but I made him a car friend and a squig and a giant squig (all on here)

    My fiance and I have a winter anniversary. I've made him an earflap hat, a scarf, and a hand-stenciled band t-shirt. I made a bracelet for him once but he never wore it.

    A t-shirt of some sort is probably a good idea, since you kinda have to wear clothes to go to most public places, haha.

    Why not a little something using your fave photos and if you've kept things like cinema tickets/ gig tickets/ train tickets from trips together use them on it too?

    I don't normally make my boyfriend gifts but this year for Valentine's day I made him a basket full of goodies, including chocolates shaped like hearts (in a box I made out of scrapbooking paper), a 3D pop out card,

    A little gothic love robot,

    And a couple of mixed CDs (my boyfriend loves music so this was genius) I thought of all the movies we had seen together and picked songs from several of the movies to place on a soundtrack for him.

    Sorry I didn't respond I got busy with school. In response to Monika my boyfriend likes alot of weird stuff. The bands he listens to are weird. His sense of humor is odd and I love him for it but it makes it difficult to buy him anything. Felecity your books were so cute! I want to make all of them except add different stuff to make it more like me. :) So here is what I shall be doing. Since my friend an I have the same exact anniversary, we decided to make a 365/52 reasons why I love you! Then I am making him a T-shirt of his favorite band and I know he will love me for it! And maybe make him a card. Thank you so much! I will post how everything turns out after our anniversary!
