My boyfriend’s 17th birthday, and our 3 month anniversary were only days apart and I wanted to do something really special. So, using a variety of ideas from this site, I made a whole box of things for him. I bought a big plastic box, and decorated it.
Then I made 2 CDs, which I labored over for hours, picking the perfect songs, and order. I put them into a 2-CD case, and made a front and back cover for it. I also copied the CDs onto cassettes so that he could listen to them in his car, which only has a tape deck. I wrote out all the lyrics, which took hours, and the reasons why I had chosen that song.
I counted out 100 Hershey’s kisses, because it would be 100 days since our first kiss on our anniversary. I put in an extra 100 so he could have another kiss for the next 100 days. I went to the dollar store and bought little heart buttons, wood pieces, stickers, and anything else I could find that had a heart on it, and included these with a note explaining that I had given my heart to him in every shape and form.
I added lip balm, in my favorite flavor, so that he could taste my kisses even when I’m not around. I also put in three blue flowers, along with the quote, „Life without you is going to be bluer than blue” from Michael Johnson.
The whole thing took forever to make! I’m going to mail it to him a week early (since he lives about an hour away from me), as I think that it would be even more of a surprise. He knows I’m making him something, but I don’t think he knows it’s going to be this big!!
