And I mean EVERYTHING. Or at least everything within my price range.
See, Kyle’s birthday is at the end of the month and I have absolutely no idea what to get him. He has everything, I swear. Tools, video games, clothes and more, so I have no idea what to get him for his birthday. I’ve even asked him what he’d like and he doesn’t even know.
What I know is this: We’re going out for dinner on the actual day of his birthday (to our favourite Greek restaurant) and we may have a few friends over a couple days beforehand for drinks and games. (His birthday is on a Sunday so it’s not a good “party” day)
He also will be finished school at the same time (like, FOREVER finished school, which is a HUGE deal) so it makes this birthday extra special.
So, while I want to do something super awesome for him, I have freaking no clue what to do. Short of buying sexy underthings, I don’t know. Maybe a book? Ugh. Boys are HARD to buy for!
Any ideas??? I have no freaking clue and time is running out!

Not sure what your budget is but here’s a few things I’ve done in the past:
Bigger budget – rent a hotel room for the night. This is one of mine and Eric’s FAVOURITE ways to celebrate things. We will usually rent a hotel room and then just hang out in it! Get PPV movies, order room services, have a wonderful sleep in a GIANT hotel bed and then not have to clean up after ourselves in the morning. Blissful. It usually costs around $200 for everything though.
Smaller budget – treat him to a movie or dinner (but you might have been planning to do that already) or cook him his favourite dinner (bonus points if it’s a surprise)!
I also LOVE giving (and receiving) gift certificates. Really, could you ever go wrong with a gift certificate to a tool/welding shop? I’m sure he’d be able to find SOMETHING to spend it on!
My budget is kind of in the middle. I had planned on baking cake and making dinner for him, but as far as a gift, I don’t know what to get. I’ll keep the tool store gift certificate in mind though. He’s always replacing tools and whatnot.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Go to the lingerie shop…
Oh snap, missed your last sentence there. Ahah. Well, I still think it’s a good idea.
Yeah, I thought about that because he gave me a gift card for Christmas that I’ve yet to use. The gift that keeps on giving? I think so!
