4. Man Can Survival Kit
Here’s a gift for gay men that requires some hands-on on your part. First, the idea is to present your man with something different to help him survive until the next time you see each other. Start by getting an empty paint can – the one gallon size is preferable. Decorate it on the outside – paint it his favorite color, print something meaningful in your own writing or glue on a cool photo of yourself. Finally, pack it up with things you’ve done together: Starbuck’s coffee, a single movie ticket, as well as humorous (or not) things to keep him busy until you meet again, such as a deck of cards, a package of chocolates and a copy of the latest GQ.
5. Cork Board Secret Messages
If you want to entertain him during the countdown until your next date, buy some cork board – just a small piece will work – and tack 7 envelopes onto it. Be creative with your envelopes. Into each one (one for each day until your next date), ‘whisper’ a sweet nothing into his ear in the form of a poem, the words to a favorite song or even a ticket to a movie tucked into an envelope. If you have trouble thinking up things and you're a member of match.com, take advantage of their many resources including an online magazine to get more ideas.
6. Memory Jar
It’s only the beginning but what better gift than to capture your memories together with a memory jar. To start, get a simple mason jar, decorate it, maybe with your initials on top, and begin with one memory you have of your time together so far. Write it on a piece of paper, fold it up and put it in the jar. Each of you collect your individual memories in the jar and at a future time you both decide upon, read and discuss your memories together.
7. A Terrarium
This is a gift you can either make yourself or purchase at a local lawn and garden store. But the terrarium you buy or make won’t be just any terrarium. Behind this gay gift idea is your promise to take your new boyfriend to the place you have ‘captured’ in this magical jar.
