12 Days Of Christmas Idea, Romantic Idea


  • Nov 23, 2010 3:25 AM GMT
    Hello,

    I am wanting to do something special for my boyfriend for Christmas, I am getting us promise rings for Christmas(we're finishing school I just want promise rings for the next 2 years). I have found a small pyramid box on Etsy that I can hang on the tree on the first day of December, with his name on it, and the ring inside. I want him to open it up on Christmas.

    However, I am wanting to do the 12 days of Christmas for him also with these pyramid boxes or something else. I was hoping for some ideas that I could get for gifts to show how much he means to me and how much I love him. I am a student and I do not have a lot of money, and I want this to be really special for him, as he is my world and my life.

    Anyone suggest something, I really want this to be special, I really do live and cherish everyday with him.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Think of things that are symbolic to your relationship.

    Something as simple as a dollar store trinket can make a great gift if it represents something meaningful

    ..and to add to this great suggestion you could buy him all the things that the song talks about, ie: eight maids a-milking could be little figurines. It's all about fun.

    Five golden rings could be five gold coloured napkin rings.

    Very cool.

    You could "hide" the gifts around the house (or other people's houses or heck even on other people!). And every day give him a new "clue" on where to find them.

    This can be way fun, and could be a nice trip down memory lane. The gifts don't have to be expensive, just something that he will appericiate. Also I would recommend on the ring being the last gift.. It is a nice thing to earn.

    Yeah, the 12 days dont have to be 12 gifts. They simply could be 12 clues to the ONE gift.

    I agree with this.

    I had a friend give me a charm bracelet for a gift. He knew very well that I don't like jewelry (unless they're ear plugs or other piercing rings), and that I'd never wear it, but the charms on them are what made it special. There were about 20 charms on the bracelet, and when he gave it to me, he described how each charm reminded him about a way in which I affected his life. Out of every gift I've ever received, from boyfriends, family, friends, etc, this is the one gift I definitely still have and will never let go. I ended up putting the charms on a small leather strand (the size of a necklace) and use it as a decoration in every place I move to. Every time I look at it, I think of him, our friendship, and how much I cherish this person.

    I hope that whatever gift you choose to give him will give him those same feelings. Make sure your gift is from the heart; it will mean everything to your friend.

    These are all great ideas.

    I do like the symbolism to your relationship type gifts. Like my boyfriend and I like to bike together, so I am getting him so gear so we can hit the trails more again next spring.

    The more meaningful the better!

    Wow, it seems beautiful.
    Once i did a video with a romantic song, videos and pictures of my ex-boyfriend.
    He still says to me that it was the best gift he ever received.
