You have wanted to give a real unique gift to your boyfriend since long but, have no idea what it should be. You do not want to give him the regulars like a gadget, his favourite CD etc.. A plain Jane affair is not what you want to do this time around. You want to unleash your creative side and decide a gift that would bring a smile to his face and in turn light up your life. Creativity does not always mean that you make something and give. You could also think of something unique, not really in the line of gifts and give it to your loved one.

1. Cook his Favourite Desert
A pineapple pastry, a brownie, a chocolate cupcake or just plain melted chocolates; your boyfriend must be fond of deserts. How about cooking and serving him his favourite desert? Normally a brownie or a cookie does not take up much of your time or effort. So, you can attempt cooking those even if you are not really the cooking types. This attempt of yours would reflect the love you have for him and make him truly happy.
2. Check into his Favourite Destination
Make real that long planned trip that he’s been pining for. It’s long due and you could just surprise him by checking into that trip with him. You could just surprise him with the trip one fine day. It would be a good surprise. You know that he really needs a break from the work stress and this trip just comes in time.

3. The Message Book
There would be many friends in his list with whom he might have lost all possible contacts. He would be itching to get in touch with them but it is just not possible given the pressures at work. You could actually get in touch with all those friends and lost people and get them to sign a message book for you with a special message for him. This special effort from your side would get him the lost happiness and bring back wonderful memories.
4. A Step Furthering Message Book
Among the friends who have signed the message book would be friends who were really close to your boyfriend.

5. A Basketful of Gifts
You know he is turning 24 this year. So go ahead and make a gift basket containing 24 small gifts.
