Open When Envelopes

This gift idea is my personal favorite.

Create as many special envelopes as you want and watch his face light up as he opens one for when he needs to be cheered up.

What you put in these little pockets of delight is up to you—maybe a silly picture of you or some poetry.

These are a real hit depending on how creative you want to get with the project.

Making my boyfriend a Valentines gift basket

You know the way most guys hate shopping? Think how great it would feel for him to have you make up a bundle of his favorite things—a travel version of his favorite board game, a box of his most treasured sweets, or maybe even tickets to see a game. The sky is the limit for this one.

It really shows how much you listen and care when you take the time to make this extra special gift for him.

Very very interesting hub. Everything was new for me. I'll show it to my daughter, She will love it (She is 10 years old and loves art&craft). Because I don't think men are really that much romantic. Hubbies usually feel suffocated by that much involvement. Its my idea only, no one has to has to agree with it anyway.
