    Ok so I'm dating a wonderful guy in Belgium (where I have been living) but am back in the USA for the next couple months. I need some ideas for presents that I could get him for Christmas (that I can mail there)!! He is coming to visit me in Colorado in a month and I'm going back to Belgium in three months, so plane tickets won't work as a gift! Lol

    Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Thanks boys!!

    Well what does he like? Is he into fashion? Sports? Interior design? History? Gardening? Art?

    Maybe a coffee table book full of photos of architecture or luxury cars, a cookbook, or something from here?

    Splurge: new skis
    inexpensive: everything American such as American candies
    Medium: clothes (American brands? Like a&f hollister etc)
    For you to also enjoy: ski trip for both of you when you return to Belgium. Or new skiing clothes when he comes visit u in denver
    Other: something unique to Denver your home
    Other2: ryanair tickets to somewhere nice when you go back (ibiza? Santorini?)

    or if you don't want to spend 300k$.. an aftermarket cold air intake for his current vehicle, or maybe even some performance exhaust headers and pipes!

    Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister are disgusting.

    What ever you order, why don't you just order it in Europe so that the shipping costs will be more reasonable. Since you lived there, I'm guessing you might already know of some good online stores that are based over there. If he has any favorite stores....start there. icon_smile.gif

    Maybe something from Jack Wills. They have stores in the UK & the US

    Actually, Paul Smith is offering free shipping worldwide right now

    Really nice, but this stuff looks expensive as well. You did not mention any kind of budget you have.

    Maybe give him something that would remind him of you and something that he can cherish til you get back. Like his favourite shirt on your with your signature cologne.

    Also, if he likes food and isn't a picky eater, you can send some of your mom's home-cooked meals or treat that wont go bad (cookies, baked goods).

    You can also send him a shirt he can proudly wear to show where his boyfriends from. So maybe a toque or a ripped up shirt that says Denver on it. (i only say ripped because a lot of tourist shirts are kinda tacky...)
