My boyfriend Steve turned 21 on August 22nd. Instead of purchasing one big gift, I decided to get him  few little things that he will be able to use.

1. Wahl 17-Piece Lithium Ion Rechargeable Trimmer.
This is something I knew he needed because the one that he has is barely hanging on.

2. Personalized 2 oz. Engraved Double Shot Glass.
I purchased this from from seller kimblejones! The first line is my boyfriend's name (I blocked out his last name). The second line is the date of his 21st Birthday. I was going to put his birth date but decided to stick the 21st birth date in order to commemorate it. The image is one of many graphics the seller offers to be engraved onto the shot glass.

3. Coupon Book - This is a simple little book I made with paper and markers. Inside are coupons he can exchange for certain things such as a "YOU WIN" coupon in which he can end an argument and a "WILD CARD" for anything he wants. I included 21 of these coupons.

4. & 5. (2) Hanes 4-pk Boxer Briefs - These were buy one, get one half off at Kohls. Everyone needs underwear right?

6.  Sonoma 6-pk Ankle Socks - Everyone needs socks right! (Do not comment on the fact that these are women socks. They are so much better than men socks! lol)


7.  Eos Lip Balm Sphere in Summer Fruit - My boyfriend loves a good lip balm (as do I!). I've heard great reviews about this lip balm and decided to pick one up for him (and one for me too!) at my local Duane Reade.

8. Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil - I also picked up this lip balm because he is always loosing them. He loves Burt's Bees lip balms and I decided to pick up this one with Pomegranate Oil which we have never tried before.

9.  Advil 24-count Tablets Pain Reliever/Fever Reducer - For those tough days when I give him a headache and beat him up (LOL just kidding guys)

10. Green and Blue Tie dye Cup with Twisty Straw - Got this at Duane Reade on clearance. A cup for his birthday drank.

11. $25 American Eagle Outfitters Gift Card

12. Secret Deodorant in the scent "Fresh Water Orchid" (because women's deodorant smells better!)

13. Birthday Card

14. Lunch at California Pizza Kitchen

15. Travel Sized Listerine

16. Carlisle Plasma Ball - Purchased this in the mall at a store which I believe is called Gizmos and Gadgets. I can't even describe how cool this ball looks. It always has a setting in which the lights react to your voice. VERY COOL!


  1. Your boyfriend is a lucky guy! How did you come up with the idea for a coupon book? That's neat! I would be overwhelmed with all the loot you giving him. Well done!

  2. Thanks for the comment Mc Huggs! I got the idea for the coupon book from seeing them at bookstores. I was going to purchase one but did not have the time so I decided to make one =]

  3. So, how did his birthday haul go? Did he like everything? was he surprised? I know I would be overwhelmed? What about the socks, LOL Does he like them.

    Th only reason I mention this is because it reminded me of something my (ex) did to me. She got me to carry a purse. (even though there nothing wrong with a man carrying a purse.) If I told you this story before, apologies.

    Okay, whenever her and I went shopping, I just loved shopping with my wife, she always made it "fun," for the two of us. She would try on clothes and I would be handed her bag.

    A number of times she complained of shoulder problems and ask me to carry her hand bag. I reluctantly did, this happened quite a bit half way through the shopping experience.

    Some how she figured I needed to have my own, shoulder bag, and she purchased a book size black leather shoulder bag, (she always called it, (my black purse.)

    Anyway, she went on a trip and came home with a present for me, it was the purse. At first I was taken back however, I figured she didn't mind me carrying a bag, and didn't think it was "too feminine" so it must be okay for me to wear it when we were together.

    I did, and wore it proudly because it was a gift from my wife and I loved her. Later on, after we separated I bought my own messenger bag myself, which I carry to this day, LOL

  4. McHuggs- He loved everything! He actually already wears womens socks because he has smaller feet anyway and they fit better in his shoes and sneakers.

    Great that you carry a bag! I myself HATE carrying bags lol I try to avoid carrying one as much as I can!


I would love to hear from you all! Leave a comment, about anything!
