My boyfriend and I will have been dating for one year on the 18th of this month. We are both teenagers are rather busy with school. Do you have any ideas of some sweet home-made gifts I can make for him?

Just make and wear a whipped cream bikini for him. He'll love it.

That'd be a very awkward thing to explain to his little sister who has a tendency of barging into his room

Food is always a good idea

That sounds super cute. We decided to celebrate later because right now we're both really stressed out and busy. But we said we'd have something for each other by next month

Do a small photo album with a mixed cd you made. Make a songs match or remind you of certain pics. You can hand write the lyric as the caption of the pic.

That sounds very elegant. Thank you!

You are welcome. I always try to make gifts for people! I think it adds a bit of "something" that a bought gift just doesn't have. I made ornaments last year, my good friend cried when she found out I made them.

You will figure out something amazing to do for your BF! Maybe your spin on a comment here.

Probably a mixture. I might even get my theater class to be willing to let me do something in the morning before class starts or something

That would be awesome! I'm sure they'd be happy to help make it special.

They would be. But I might just save that for Prom

Food, food and food. Desserts and food.
Did I mention food?

Unfortunately i'm broke and if I cook the entire house will likely burn (I suck at cooking). My mom's sick so no food being made and too broke to afford store bought

Dang, sorry about that. Hope your mom feels better.

Me as well. It's a sinus infection, we think anyways

Allergies are bad right now on the east coast.

Definitely. I forgot my allergy pill this morning and I can really feel it

You could make a collage by printing out some pics & putting them on pretty paper & in a frame or maybe use an app to make the collage before printing.

You could go old school...when I was your age making a mix tape of favorite songs or songs with special meaning was popular, so in today's world that might translate into downloading them in MP3 version to a USB drive or the like.

That also sounds really creative. I could make him a playlist just for him. That could work! :)

Well I'm a mom so this may not be applicable, but you might be able to adapt it.

Coupon book of things you can do for him. Do you cook? Give back rubs? Help him with stuff when he gets overloaded with school work? Date night coupon - he picks. You

Probably get the gist. If I think of any others, I'll drop them below this initial comment. Good luck!

That actually sounds super nice! And easy enough that it won't take away from my college work

Awesome! 👍✋👊

Get creative, it's lots of fun when the person cashes in their coupons. My kids get super excited when I do.

It sounds super amazing and effecient of both of our time. We both have three college courses, so time is really a big issue, but this'll ensure we have plenty of time to actually care for each other
