It could be something he's been meaning to pick up for himself or a new book you think he'll love.
Wrap the two items together, include a sweet note and tuck it away in his luggage for a nice surprise once he unpacks.
If you prefer a sweet gesture instead of a material gift, I'd suggest waking up a bit early on the day you're heading out.
Whip up a batch of his favorite AM yummies and surprise him with breakfast in bed.
Or, if you're not into cooking, run out for bagels and coffee before he's up.
We just received an email from a reader who needs our help pronto! My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year officially this weekend.
She and her beau are celebrating their one year anniversary this weekend and she'd like to give him a sweet little gift but isn't sure where to start. We're going away for the Labor Day holiday..I wanted to get him/do something special to commemorate the day (like a surprise).
We live together so it'll be a little hard to do anything too epic.
I don't want to make a huge deal just something sweet. While the big-ticket gifts like gaming consoles or watches are fun surprises, I think sweet gifts are the most meaningful.
Chris and I were still poor college students during our first Christmas together so we went small, but sweet.
I headed to a used bookstore and bought about twenty classic novels I knew he didn't have. We've since combined our lives, including our libraries, so the books now serve as a lovely bookshelf reminder of our early days.
Books are among my favorite gifts to give loved ones.
