Here are presents that I have given the BF in the past:
- On his 25th birthday, I got him 25 things. Items included video games, laptop bag, etc.
- On a different birthday, I ordered expensive steak from a steakhouse he always wanted to try. I set up a romantic dinner setting at our home, pretending that I cooked it! LOL, he knows I don’t cook so there was really no pretending! I greeted him at the door, in lingerie! =P He very much liked both presents. He said that was the best present he received!
- Tech gadgets – This is how I found out that I shouldn’t buy him "tech" items. He made me return ALL items that I purchased for him (cameras, video cameras, etc) because, as I mentioned, he claimed that he can get a “better deal”. Of course it's true, he can get a better deal. After all, that is his area of knowledge. I will stick to my clothes and makeup
As you can see, I have to use my imagination on this one! Anyway, this year's gift is just as hard (if not harder) than years before.
Here are a couple of items that I have in mind:
Bamboo Fun Tablet w/ Pen, Mouse & Graphics Software in Medium & Black - $200 at amazon.com. Ok, I admit – this is more for me than him! But I think being the computer nerd that he is; he would enjoy playing with it for a couple of days! Just like kids do when they get new toys!
I asked a friend whose fiancée is very similar to my BF what he would want. On his list were video game consoles (BF has ALL of them!), video games that are not-yet-release (won’t be able to get these without getting caught), and, lastly, a nice road bike. LOL, a BICYCLE?!!
GMC Denali Road Bike - about $270 at amazon.com
