Hey there. c:
So, around Christmas it will be me and my boyfriend's three month anniversary! I am quite happy for it. The problem is I REALLY want to give him a gift but I have no money.. what so ever. I write him letters and poems and draw him things practically ever day. So, that's out of the question. I already made him a bracelet.

I COULD probably scavenge up a few dollars to do this.. I wanted to get a pad lock and take a walk with him and lock it to the bridge and throw the key off the bridge. But I don't know where to get cheap padlocks. Plus... my parents don't really let me buy things so eh.

What else can I do? I can play guitar but I really suck and I'm too shy to sing or play in front of him.

Thanks in advance [Smile]

Maybe learn one song you feel confident enough with to go ahead,even if you fumble, and play for him?

Or draw him a little book that is the history of your relationship so far, with things you live about it?

I think spending time with someone is a great gift, too. Even if you can't get a padlock, you could still take your boyfriend on a nice walk and talk to him about how happy you are in your relationship right now.

I'm personally a fan of Heather's ideas, but you can get a padlock at Dollaramma for $1.00 if you want to go that route (which is also unique and thoughtful).

December might be a nice time to give him a wall calendar for next year [Smile] If you draw the month pictures and the calendar yourself it could be quite cheap.

Then you can also decorate some special dates on the calendar, like Valentine's or your anniversary.
