So I'm stuck... haha I don't have a whole bunch of ideas for my SO's birthday. (yes I am going in a present for him with his brother so I have a gift covered...but I want to do something special)

I don't have the means to come out and surprise him like I was hoping, so I wanted to know if any of you guys out there had some ideas for gifts/care packages that I could send to him in the mail?

I have over a month to decide what I'm going to do - but I really want to do something special. Any ideas?

I'm not very creative, but sent my fiance's favorite cake (Red Velvet) for his birthday and he loved it!

We live in different countries so I order it online at: www.secretspoon.com

I edited to post more ideas All these are things I bought online while he was deployed for christmas, birthdays and anniversaries.

DVD's of favorite TV Series
CD's
His favorite cologne
A new cologne that I liked a lot
Movies DVD's
Magazine subscription (Men's Health)
Books
Leather wallet
Underarmour shirts (very useful gift if your SO wears an army uniform).
Neutrogena hair stuff! (Haha! He'll be upset if he reads this, but when I visit he always uses my conditioner and hair stuff so I sent him some! LOL)
Clinique stuff for his face (same reason why I got him the neutrogena stuff LOL).

If I think of more I'll post again

For his birthday last year I got him a shirt, lmao. His favourite colour is camo so I got him a blue one. For Christmas last year I got him a boxing DVD about his favourite Boxer. For our anniversary I got a box and decorated it. I cut out 100 little hearts and wrote a different reason of why I love him on each on them. He loved it! I'm always sending him cards and stuff.

In the past, I have found a bazillion ideas in the Ideas section of LYC. There are so many, from crafts to date nights...I picked a few to make (I love crafts) and though the person they got sent to didn't appreciate them, I did have fun in the making

Since you have some time...you could try something along the lines of this. Go back thru letters/emails/chat logs and collect the bits of conversation that stick out - and put them in a scrap book with pictures...

Working on that for my Angel and its kinda neat - lotsa good stuff there.

Well, I just sent a box, to my S.O. (but he doesn't know it). I sent it to a mutual friend who said that he would deposit the stuff where ever he wants me too, and so I am having my friend drop stuff of at work, and his university and bring stuff over to his apt.

I included different foods from the States that have Korean on them or you can't find there like chocolate and peanut butter oreos, pineapple fanta, stickers with Korean, and a tom and jerry metal chopstick and spoon set, so that he can practice before he comes over to visit me here.... I plan on sending him emails throughout the day to let him know whats coming up next.

I am so excited about this its been really hard to keep it a secret, cause it will take the box 2 weeks to get to my friends house.

Thanks a lot for all the ideas!!!

marie77: I love the cake idea :-D

poetman: So I think I'm going to do something really crafty for him - I've made him comics before, but single page ones - I'm thinking about doing one on the story of us from our first meeting to his birthday.

recoil: I've been scrapping a few pages for us - so I might do a page just for him to keep and maybe frame it?

Also I found out he really wants to do some work with his truck - so I'm going to get him a kit to completly detail it I think he'll like that *crosses fingers*

Wow so many ideas to play around with!! Thanks a bunch everyone for posting!

I thought of what I am going to do for her birthday even before she left. I am going to have a birthday party for her ...just me and her at our favorite restaurant.... I am going to video tape the table with me on oneside and the camera angle from where she would sit. I am going to sit and talk to her, eat my food, and tell her how much I love her. I love her so much. I will edit the video and add pictures and some of her favorite music.

I think that this is a start. There are so many things that I will send her as well. I wish I could be there on her birthday, but i may not be able to see her until about two months afterwards
