I did this for my boyfriend for his birthday last year, and he loved it. I went out and bought an inexpensive photo album (the kind with magnetic pages) and put together an album of just us.
I started with pictures of just me, and then pictures of just him, then pictures of us together. At the end I put pictures of all the things we’ve been able to buy together (our house, our couch, our dog, etc.) and that we’ve received while together (Christmas gifts, etc.). This works best when you’ve been together for a while, so you’ve amassed a lot of photos.
I wrapped it, and gave it to him. I also went out and bought him cologne and clothes and other stuff. When he was done opening his other gifts, I brought out the album. When he opened it, he looked through it, then put it down and gave me the biggest hug he’s ever given me.
Then he kissed me really sweetly and said that he loved me and would forever. He then got on one knee and proposed. He told me he had been waiting for me to do something really spectacular and romantic, and said that nothing would top the album.
I hope this works for you, it sure worked for me!
