Thanks - it's ok, I think I;ve solved it. I'm going to buy him a leather folder to keep his writing in-well for a guy money it's always a good option but...
-a watch, trinkets (if he likes jewelery), very good books (fiction or psyhology for me)
and what not to buy:
-usually I like good company not gifts (I don't really care), but a nice attention is appreciated
but this is for me I can't guarantee that he likes or dislikes the same gifts
I had planned to hand make his card..Your gift idea sounds really nice, let us know how it goes.
Gifts is probably dead last or second to dead last on the list of Love Language styles. The best gifts I have gotten have been hand crafted items (which really places it for me in the Time category, since the person took the time to hand make something for me). The next best gifts are something like tickets to a movie/play or something similar that they'll attend with me (again making effort to spend time with me). And third best, something that shows they understand what I like... so for me, for instance, a book they know I've been wanting or materials for my hobbies.
I had planned to write in his hand-made card.. lol - though I had been toying with the idea of attempting a piece of 'creative writing' of my own, like a version of how we met/got together and putting it in the folder. I don't wanna make the poor lad vomit though... ha :]write a letter!
That sounds really awesome actually. A friend of mine gave me a journal which kind of sounds similar to your idea about the folder to keep his writing, and I thought it was the nicest gift even though it didn't really cost a lot because, it reflected something he knew about me: that I like to write. If there were a handwritten note in the little pocket, I'd consider than icing on the cake, for real.Ok, I'm feeling you guys on the letter - I'll buy some nice paper and a fountain pen, a nice envelope and some brown string and tie it up nicely and put it in the folder...
