    [​IMG] Hi everyone!

    I need ideas for a birthday present for my boyfriend...He plays lacrosse a lot, he plays acoustic guitar, he's a Christian and religion is a pretty important thing to both him and I (we both go to the same church), etc...and so far I know I'm going to get him a bag of Swedish fish, because that's his favorite candy. [​IMG] I asked when what he wanted and he said he "probably wants to hang out with the most beautiful girl in the world (you). <3" [​IMG] (I know, he's sooo sweet haha [​IMG])...As some of you might know, I like to draw (pencil/sketching), and so here are some of my ideas:

    -pencil drawing of him playing lacrosse, wearing his favorite lacrosse jersey with his number on it...I was thinking of putting this on a card for him, and having another gift along with it...
    -something related to acoustic guitars? (I have no experience whatsoever with acoustic guitars and so I'm not sure what I could get him for his guitar...)
    -lacrosse supplies? (such as...? [​IMG])

    I'm planning on hanging out with him on his birthday, which is next Sunday (May 29th), so I still have 10 days to think of ideas and get it all together...We've been dating for almost 3 months now, and I want to get him something he'll love, but I'm extremely low on money right now and would like some ideas for something that's not too expensive (probably something that won't cost over $35-$40).

    Soooo...any ideas would be much appreciated. [​IMG]
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    My first completly random thought was to get the swedish fish, but cut them to look like Ichthus'. [​IMG] Dumb, I know.

    Write him a poem about swedish fish, God, and lacrosse?

    Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...... I dunno.

    Quote:Good idea, but there aren't any right now that I know of, plus he's most likely going to be celebrating his birthday at home with his family, so I'll probably be hanging out with him at his house with his family.

    eenie: what are Ichthus'? [​IMG] haha

    What about some CDs or a gift card to download some music by his favorite bands? I think the drawing sounds like the best idea, personally.

    He likes to wear athletic sweatshirts and shirts too, so I'm starting to think that maybe a lacrosse sweatshirt or something would be a good idea.

    Here's the ones I think he would most likely like (or are similar to what I've seen him wear before, and seem to match his "style the most...oh and his favorite color is green, so that might help...)

    #1: http://www.worldlacrosseshop.com/departments-lacrosse-t-shirts-lacrosse-crossed-sticks-t-shirt--green-.html

    #2
    : http://www.cafepress.com/+lacrosse_hooded_sweatshirt,363233401

    #3
    : http://www.cafepress.com/+long_sleeve_black_tshirt,120708234

    #4
    : http://www.cafepress.com/+lacrosse_player_22_dark_tshirt,260967240 (in green...and 22 is his jersey number)

    #5: http://www.amazon.com/lacrosse-Kids...rel&qlEnable=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1305840069&sr=1-19 (in green)

    #6: http://www.amazon.com/Player-lacrosse-Sleeve-VelociTee-T-Shirt/dp/B003WM04IG/ref=sr_1_75?s=apparel&qlEnable=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1305840326&sr=1-75

    If
    I had to choose, I would probably choose #2, #3, #4, or #6. Out of these, #4 and #6 seem so much like something he would wear, especially #6. If you guys had to choose, which one would you choose and why?

    Other lacrosse accessories that I think he might like...
    http://www.zazzle.com/lacrosse_designs_irock_oval2_bumper_sticker-128498706220737952 (cheap, and something he would probably like)
    I was also thinking of ordering a few guitar picks for his acoustic guitar, with his name printed on them to personalize them. [​IMG] What do you think?

    Thanks!
